Présentation de l'éditeur

This book traces the evolution of the style of men's dress through a sequence of diagrams accurately scaled down from patterns of actual garments, many of them rare museum specimens. The plates have been selected with the same purpose. Some are photographs of suits for which diagrams have also been given; others, reproduced from paintings and old prints, show the costume complete with its accessories. Quotations from contemporary sources--from diaries, travelers' accounts and tailors' bills--supplement Norah Waugh's text with comments on fashion and lively eyewitness descriptions.

Biographie de l'auteur

Norah Waugh lectured and supervised practical work on historic costume in the Theatre Department of the Central School of Art and Design in London. In the late 1930s she was in charge of costume at the London Theatre Studio run by Michel Saint-Denis.

Très bon livre avec de très bons patrons. Malheureusement, je trouve que le prix est vraiment excessif par rapport aux données.

HASH(0x9cc26918) étoiles sur 5 A Comprehensive Source for Men's Clothing 20 décembre 1999
Par dvons - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was a little surprised when I recieved this book that it is not quite as beefy as Norah Waugh's _Cut of Women's_ clothes. I was however very pleased with it's cotent. About half of the patterns seem to be taken from pre-1780s and the other half from 1840 on. This was a little disappointing as I was looking for some good Regency Jackets for my husband. There are how ever several frock coats that I can easily ajust the cut to to get the look I want. This is a great book as far as I can tell but I am still undecided as to whether it is worth the steep price tag.

HASH(0xa6728ed0) étoiles sur 5 Nice Resource for Historical Costuming 23 février 2001
Par Paul Willoughby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I never thought I would ever sew. However, my brother and I got the grandiose idea that we would make ourselves leather buff coats to wear during re-enactments with our 17th century living history group. We needed a pattern and started with research at the local college library and found this book. Although neither one of us had ever sewn before, we were able to take the coat pattern from this book, adapt it to fit our bodies and sew a coat for ourselves out of buff leather. There is a whole chapter on 17th century clothing which has patterns for breeches, doublets, cassacks and sword hangars. It also has photos of actual museum pieces. If I could use the patterns in the book, than anyone with any skill will have no problems. This book is an good resource for those wishing to sew their own period clothing.

HASH(0xa6728498) étoiles sur 5 A rare resource, but not for beginners. 12 décembre 2007
Par Cytheria Creations - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is the only one I've found that gives decent cutting diagrams for men's garments. I love it and have successfully made a few of the garments in it.

This book is not for beginners. Don't expect to be able to just scale up one of the patterns and get sewing. Waugh assumes you know how to sew, make and alter patterns. The only techniques mentioned are ones we don't use commonly in modern sewing and those are really only touched on out of curiosity's sake.

The only real downside is the lack of back views of many garments. Some of the coats have back views, but many of the breeches and other garments are forgotten--possibly because they're not normally fancy--but for someone who is trying to get the fit right on a pair of breeches it would be very helpful!

I recommend it to historical costumers who are interested in accurate recreation and also to theatre costumers as a visual reference for a stage interpretation. Not for someone who wants a quick costume for the weekend or for a novice sewer.

HASH(0x9db8a0b4) étoiles sur 5 NOT worth the price 13 novembre 2011
Par T. Ward - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was unbelievably disappointed with this book, especially given the price. The scaled down patterns are okay, but not especially usable if you really want to actually make the garments. I am the shop manager for a professional shop, and even our draper/pattern-maker, who was looking to expand her knowledge of pre-twentieth century menswear, found this book one step above useless. And it should DEFINITELY be noted that the book isn't really men's clothes from 1600-1900... it's more 1600 to 1780 and 1850 to 1900, and even those timeframes aren't what I would call comprehensive. It's printed on cheap paper and doesn't even have the feel of a nicely made and published book. Abysmal book and overpriced to boot.

For that price, not very complete. Some info I was looking for were not find in this book so I'm a little bit disappointed because the book is really pricey.
