Any book that includes a picture of Steve McQueen in The Great Escape or Get Carter-era Michael Caine or Connery model Bond gets short shrift in these parts. Nothing against the blessed trinity of cool of course, just that other publications have that area well covered.
The new Icons of Men's Style includes all three. What saves it from the not-on-your-nellie pile is the fact that it is authored by long-time friend of the hypest publication :Wallpaper* and one of the UK's most respected and measured men's fashion journalists, Josh Sims.
And that Sims takes apart the staples of the male wardrobe in forensic detail and with real vim and vigour.
