Nautical Chic

Nautical chic 
To plea for the enduring appeal of the Breton top, or the pea coat, or any nautical inspired preppy classic, is really unnecceary. But what the book Nautical Chic, by Amber Jane Butchart, does, and does it well, is go back to the origins of the nautical fashion (covered in five chapters, Officer, Sailor, Fisherman, Sportsman and Pirate), tracing the history of the style and its evolution and impact on modern day clothing. Very well researched, thoroughly written and accompanied by suggestive photography and illustrations, this is the only book that takes an in depth view on the seafaring influence on fashion, telling you everything you want to know on the subject (the attention to every little button and epaulette is remarkable), and, hands down, one of the best style volumes I have put my hands on.
