All I can say is -- WOW!

This book is NOT a fashion book as the understated subtitle suggests. Instead, I am looking at a GALLERY of fine Black men throughout the ages with their "fashions" being very secondary.This book is filled with WONDERFUL color and black and white photos of Black men -- famous and unknown, past and present. This book is monumentally political for it demonstrates why the Black man is loved, hated, feared, hunted, and reverenced throughout the world! This book is a job well-done.

A Must Have for All Stylish Men

This book is simply amazing. I received the book as a gift from my fiancee and have treasured this book ever since. First, the photographs are amazing, pleasant, and necessary reminders of the way stylish men of color have shaped style and fashion over the years. Second, there is the instructional aspect of the book that covers matters outside of clothing and which I can't say enough about. After reading the section of the book that dealt with hair and skin care, I was motivated to go buy shaving soap and shaving brush and dispense with the shaving gel. Thanks to Lloyd Boston and this book I have had the best shaving experiences of my life. I can't say how necessary this book is for the many black men who go through the drama of ingrown facial hair. I have less drama than most in that department, but I have still seen a remarkable improvement in my skin, as would any man after following the book's advice. The book even arms you with the necessary vocabulary to navigate your way around a men's shop with ease. There is even instructions on how to do the perfect shoe shine! And as Lloyd Boston points out, well-shined shoes are the best complement to any wardrobe. So,to sum up this book, it is NECESSARY! It is necessary for any stylish man and any man who strives to be so. It is more than worth the money.

Men of Color: Fashion, History, Fundamentals

After reading and reading and reading Lloyd Boston's book "Men of Color: Fashion, Historyi, Fundamentals", I can honestly say that I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is a source of reference to me when I buy gifts for the special men in my life or when they are unsure of how to buy for themselves. It is a conversation piece with all who enter my home. We reminisce about the pictures and ooh and ahh over beauty held within the pictures. My favorite interview is when Mr. Boston speaks with Jesse Jackson on youth culture and fashion. Thanks to Mr.Boston for the picture of Tyson Beckford and the other fine men!

Boston's work celebrates the African American Man.

Men of Color is an extraordinary acknowledgement of the fashion standards set by Black Men in this century. If you appreciate the value of books that celebrates the African American Man, then you'll love the work LLoyd Boston put into this beautiful book. The Fashions are avant grade.In every aspect of life the influence of fashion trends and style unique to our culture is powerfully presented.The History makes for heart warming reflections. The photographs are absolutely to die for, Matthew Jordan Smith really works magic in capturing the true essence of the male mystic.Fundamentals makes for valuable information for everybody. If you use it as shopping guide for gifts or simply to establish a style guide line for wardrobe choices Men of Color is a necessity.The interviews provide the reader keen insights on style preferences from our favorite personalities. The entire book cover to cover is Magnificent...Every "Sister" knows there is nothing more majestic than the sight of a well groomed and well dressed Black Man. His presence is powerful without him uttering a single word. It just dosen't get any "FINER" than that...I salute LLOYD BOSTON for this dynamic tribute that celebrates our legacy and MEN OF COLOR all around the world

Excellent Photographic History

Men of color, a book that captivates the fashion of men of color throughout modern history. A "must see" for anyone who enjoys the fasion of men of color.
