Wearing the Trousers : The Grammar of Western Clothing 2
By (author) Tembouret, Mireille
As in a grammar book, this volume looks at the foundations and rules of the Western wardrobe. By exploring each garment with its functions that often called for extremely precise details, we have developed a teaching tool for the general public, using pieces from the author's enormous collection, to help understand the attraction and appeal of a specific garment. This second book, which focuses on breeches and trousers, offers secrets that were the foundation for what ended up as a social evolution - Wearing the Trousers. Both an introductory book and a reference document on the culture of fashion, this second book of the series looks at breeches and trousers from yesterday and today. It helps better understand the changes in these garments for men and especially for women, moving from ready-to-wear for the city to leisure activities.
