The icons in this book aren't men like Steve McQueen or Paul Newman, rather, they're wardrobe staples like trenchcoats, penny loafers, and tweed jackets. Read up on the origins of deck shoes, penny loafers, M-65 jackets, and much, much more. Josh Sims is a deft writer, and his take on timeless menswear is a more interesting perusal than his other book, <a href="" target="_blank">Cult Streetwear</a>, which serves as simply a primer on brands like Neighborhood, X-Large, and Stussy, though there's not much in here you can't glean from a steady diet of forums and blog archives.
