The essential and inspirational reference to more than fifty international designers, labels, brands, stores, blogs and websites that have shaped independent men’s fashion over the last decade

In the past, menswear and creative fashion were not words that were easily associated with one another. While a rich tradition existed in men’s tailoring, menswear was seen as very much the poor relation to womenswear. Times have changed: menswear, notably that created and produced by independent labels, is a hotbed of creativity; separate fashion weeks devoted to menswear are now held in Paris, London, and Milan; and the menswear scene is hotly discussed, critiqued, and debated in the press and online.

Contemporary Menswear presents in-depth profiles of more than fifty of the designers, labels, brands, stores, websites, and blogs that have shaped and continue to shape menswear in the twenty-first century. From classic heritage labels such as Albam Clothing through to dynamic, new labels such as Tellason (crafted, desirable denim) this is a detailed and insightful guide to an independent menswear scene that has grown to be a respected and highly creative part of global fashion.
