Description

With impeccable taste and an unerring eye for detail, connoisseur Simon Crompton guides the reader through the intricacies of contemporary artisanal menswear, from the Panama hat to the Milanese buttonhole. Each chapter focuses on a different item of clothing and the craftspeople who have mastered it. Aided by extensive illustrations, Crompton offers detailed insight into the way in which these luxury items are designed and constructed, explaining the subtle but crucial difference a hand-stitched seam, perfectly cut sleeve or screen-printed silk can make.
