      The library bought this book because someone called us and asked if we had any books on the subject. No one in the area did, and this looked so interesting that I reserved it for myself once the original patron was finished.It is fascinating. Even for someone who couldn't care less about fashion or fabric design, it's fun to see the evolution of what seems to be pretty much an archetype. My only fairly nit-picky quarrel is that there aren't many women's jackets included.
