On Jocks and Nerds

I found this men's style book at the Academy of Art University library. I really love the journey through men's fashion over the last century or so. It was published by Rizzoli International Publications in 1989, but curated so well that it feels perfectly contemporary. The book is out of print, but is available on Amazon used for about $50.
