Today’s menswear designers must understand the history of fashion to come up with new and innovative ideas. Filled with inspiration for designers and students alike, The Fashion Resource Book: Men is a collection of research essential to the study of men’s fashion.

The book is divided into three sections, each structured as a series of detailed case studies. The first section investigates the research process in the work of such designers as Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, and Yohji Yamamoto, among others. The second section is on research and inspiration, including street style and uniform, and the influence of established companies. The third section presents detailed case studies of particular garments, including parkas, trench coats, and denim jackets.

The follow-up to the hugely successful The Fashion Resource Book, this volume is sure to become required reading in fashion classes and home libraries alike.
Robert Leach teaches at the University of Westminster and at Central Saint Martins in London. He has worked as a designer and in journalism for i-D magazine and others.
