MENSWEAR vintage postcards book

Anyone interested in men’s fashion will love MENSWEAR, a collection of 200 vintage picture postcards compiled by celebrated British artist Tom Phillips RA (see I had the happy task of writing the foreword for the book, which is published by Bodleian Library Publishing with a cover price of £15 (ISBN: 978-1-85124-378-5)

This is my favourite image from the entire book – a dapper chappy indeed.

The book is laid out with, usually, four postcards shown across a spread. It is an extraordinary collection that illustartes just how much care regular men once took with their outfits.


The book was launched at a very agreeable evening on September 27 at Huntsman of Savile Row, with drinks supplied by cloth merchant Harrisons of Edinburgh. I appreciate the generosity of both sponsors.
