Men’s fashion book from the 70’s
December 25, 2012 7:39 PM   Subscribe

A couple of years ago I read about a book of contemporary men’s fashion from the 70’s. It is considered a classic by some and I believe fetches a fair price. It featured a lot of mixing of styles. Any idea what this might be?

Not so much mixing of styles, and '65 instead of 70s, but could it have been Take Ivy? The original was highly sought-after, but it's been reprinted recently.

"Dress for Success"? Author maybe something like Malloy?

It's from the 80s, but Alan Flusser's Clothes and the Man otherwise matches your description. It's still very collectible.

I’m sorry I don’t have much to go on, but I think (and should have made clear);

It had more of a "fashion" angle, not classic conservative men’s style. But to make this more confusing the gist of it seemed to be mixing various classic styles for a contemporary look. Not Ziggy Stardust or Disco clothes, not Cary Grant, but boots with a suit jacket, something like that.
That’s how I remember it anyway.
