The man of fashion : peacock males and perfect gentlemen
A celebration of men through the ages who have dressed extravagantly to show power, express sexuality or to set themselves apart. The course is charted from medieval knights, through fops, bucks, dandies and swells to mods, hippies and punks. Sport and movie idols, gay culture and new designers are assessed for their influence.
