suit yourself. Sharp Suits examines the fascinating history of the evolution of the modern suit from the days of 19th-century bespoke to the mass industrialization of the early part of the 20th-century. We see how the uniform of the ruling classes became the utilitarian outfit of the worker. In a series of thematic chapters, the book also illustrates how the universal staple of a man's wardrobe can play many different roles and, chameleon-like, can mean different things in different situations. Retro or futuristic, subtle or outrageous, the suit is the ultimate flexible friend. Movie stars and rock stars, heroes and villains, philanthropists and gangsters—all these men and many, many more have dressed to impress in a matching jacket and trousers and have found that a suit very much suits them.
