Description of The Details: Iconic Men's Accessories

The Details tells the stories behind the ultimate, classic men's accessories - their heritage and design, the personalities that famously wore them, and how each item has shaped contemporary men's fashion. The leather biker boot, for example, took its stylistic cues from the toughened boots worn by the loggers and engineers of the American industrial revolution, long before Marlon Brando and James Dean helped make them a 1950s style staple. The origins of the ubiquitous baseball cap can be traced back to the New York Knickerbockers' team caps of 1849 - which were made of straw - while the bandana's association with rebels, outsiders and revolutionaries stems from as far back as the 1700s. From classic diving watches to the simple pocket square, The Details examines the most important of men's accessories and showcases the pioneering figures of fashion and the key brands behind them.
