A-Z of Classic American Clothing: The Book

A-Z of Classic American Clothing By Gina Holdar

I am currently finishing up a book with the working title A-Z of Classic American Clothing. You can click here to see a preview and leave feedback.

The book takes a light-hearted approach to uncover brief histories, facts, heritage, provenance and anecdotes about American clothing and brands that have made their way into mainstream modern wardrobes.

I think that this information is especially interesting for those who want to learn more about American clothing classics and their social context, which have origins dating back decades, even centuries. It should also be appealing to readers who want to investigate the elements that make up their persona and lifestyle.

AMERICANA aims to give you unique pieces of classic American vintage clothing and an interesting story to go along with it!

All comments and suggestions that you share are most welcome!
