And, as Tim Gunn might say - it blew my socks off!!
I have to admit menswear isn't generally all that exciting to me, so when I heard about this exhibit I thought it would be good...but wasn't super pumped to see it. Boy was I wrong. It really is the most comprehensive show on men's historical clothing I've ever seen - in any museum or museum catalog. Just when I thought we'd come to the end we'd turn a corner and there was more. Room after room of truly stunning garments from the early 18th century to modern couture. There was so much, and I was so busy taking pictures that I stayed until closing and they had to kick me out!
If you're in LA any time between now and August 21st I urge you to go see it. You won't be sorry.
I took tons of pictures and was so impressed I just may go back to see it all again and take more, but here are some of the highlights -
You can see my photos of the exhibit, all 255 of them, here on flickr.
