Fashion-forward men and women will be intrigued by Man About Town: The Changing Image of the Modern Male, the eye-catching, informative and entertaining new book from fashion editors Catherine Hayward of British GQ and Bill Dunn of British Esquire. In today's hyper-speed information age, fashion, along with what's hip in music and the visual arts, changes at the blink of the eye, and the willing and ever-present media is more than happy to let people know what's ""now"" and ""hot"" for the millisecond. But according to Hayward and Dunn, fast-changing fashion (even if what's new is actually retro) is a defining element of 20th-century culture, and they capture the highlights (and lowlights) decade by decade.
