Men and Women: Dressing the Part

£25.00

“Today, both men and women wear trousers,” thunders this 1989 tome from the Smithsonian Institution, describing itself as “a fascinating and important book that explores the relationship between changes in fashion and our changing ideas about masculinity and femininity.” Men and Women: Dressing the Part is a series of academic essays with titles like ‘Clothing and Sexuality’ and ‘Challenging Gender Symbols’ by Valerie Steele, Claudia Brush Kidwell and Barbara A. Schreier, who show that the late 1980s were not a very long way away from the mid-2020s when it comes to the politics of fashion. This large-format hardback copy is in fine condition except for one minor tear to the dust jacket.
