Lou Pick's : ABC of Men's Fashion by Hardy Amies
I came across this book called ABC of Men's Fashion by Hardy Amies at Kisan's Concept store event in SoHo. The title was intriguing, so I started flipping through the pages and fell in love with this quote, "A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care,and than forgotten all about them", I knew from that moment on I had to have a copy. This book is pretty much essential to have because it breaks down just about every fashion term and item into an A to Z listing, with descriptions for each in Mr Amies' own witty style.
