SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. This book recalls to us the very real social pressure people felt once upon a time to conform to dress and fashion standards for ones place in society - back then you really could judge a person by the clothes they wore. This book takes you for a ride on the male side of this important history sidecar.
