The Aesthete's

Fall Reading List

Trends may come and trends may go, but style, as they say, is eternal. And what better way to show you've got it than with a towering stack of stylish tomes piled on your coffee table or bookshelf? Here are look at this fall's crop.

American Fashion Menswear

A follow up to the popular American Fashion book, the CFDA curated a categorized history of menswear, filled with iconic imagery, advertisements and illustrations from the best in the business. Chapters include Utility, the Ivy Road, Hollywood and the Evolution of the Suit.

The Sartorialist

Scott Schuman's much-hyped book is a diminutive paperback that's easy to flip through.

100 Years of Menswear

Fashion historian Cally Blackman traces the revolution in menswear over the last century, from tailored suits to T-shirts and jeans in this book, released next week.

Maison Martin Margiela

This book, co-written by the mysterious Belgian designer, offers a peek inside the workings of the Paris-based studio. We only wish the book came with those four tell-tale white stitches on the back.

Italian Touch

The collaborative effort of Italian fashion writer Donatella Sartorio, photographer Paolo Leone and the luxe leather house of Tod's, this book chronicles the style of Italians living the good life.
