Just finished reading Geoffrey Aquilina Ross’s book The Day Of the Peacock, 144 pages about the birth of men’s fashion and the peacock revolution. Well written by a man who was very much on the crusp of mens wear during the period the book covers with lots of great pictures of garments. Aquilina Ross was an editor for the magazine Vogue and he shares his memoirs of all the great designers of the time that sprung up
in London to make the city the most “happening” place in the world for mens clothing. I found it a very informative and entertaining read. Some of the suits on show are really gear, I’ve already had the book in the tailors to show a couple of details and styles I like. If you only buy one book on clobber this year, make sure its this one.
