I found "Out of Style by Betty Kreisel Shubert to be a treasure chest of fashions through out the ages. I thought I knew a great deal about fashion but learned so much from this meticulously researched book. It took me an a wonderful walk down memory lane with fashions I've worn and read about beginning centuries before I was born. It would be a fabulous resource book for any author of regency romances, history . . . A complete guide from the 1820 though the 60's for men, women, and children. Complete with drawings and life styles. A must for costume designers.This treasure is written in easy to understand text. My hats off to Betty for all the detailed work on a valuable part of our history.
