Rupert von Rom Buttoned-Up
Once every couple of years there’s a book that’s so smart in concept it’s an instant success. Buttoned-Up tells the story of London style through the history of the button-down shirt – part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin
Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom are the creators of Fantastic Man, a singular modern men’s style journal. Here they chart the history of the button-up shirt and explore why it’s so central to contemporary London’s fashion, design and people. With star contributors, fashion shoots and singular writing, this is a fashion magazine in a book.
A must see/read!
