Essence called it "a testament to the creative spirit of Black men . . . filled with striking photographs of Black legends and insightful essays about the historical context of their apparel." With sleek photographs and a host of celebrity interviews, the special value hardcover edition captures the elegance of Nat King Cole, comfort of Bill Cosby, hip-hop style of LL Cool J, and sex appeal of Denzel Washington.

It's been a while since I've read this book so my recollection may be off, but I recall it being very good about the historical evolution and fashion (with many beautiful photographs) but pretty weak on fundamentals until you reach the end. Definitely take a look at this for some vintage inspiration and perspective and just a tad bit of quirk (using a neck tie as a belt).
