Throughout history, the peacock male has strutted through the pages of men's fashion. Top fashion writer Colin McDowell charts this self-confident course, from the medieval knights, with their lavish heraldic dress, through the stuffed and codpieced Elizabethans to the mods of the 20th century. Entertaining, informative, and endlessly surprising. 220 illustrations. 80 in color.
