    This book is very thorough, covering many centuries of fashion history It is a dictionary with text only and no images Terms pertaining to men, women, and children are included Definitions are clearly written The book would have been much expensive to print if it had had pictures.

    Amazing information, all they could add would be some information on when a word is used in other languages differently For example, some words mean different things in British English, American English, and Australian English It would be better if those things were noted.

    I bought this book for my daughter for Christmas, and she loved it She s very interested in the culture and history of fashion, and as she said, this would also be useful when reading literature such as Jane Austen Highly recommended
