Official book description:

The 1960's, especially in England, witnessed a spectacular renaissance of dandyism - a movement in men's style that the media called the "Peacock Revolution." This entertaining book takes a fascinating look at the "Swinging Sixties" London scene. Illustrated with photographs, outfits, and ephemera drawn from the V&A's superb archives. This is a personal memoir of a moment in which fashion insider Geoffrey Aquilina Ross recalls the era's most dashing figures, including Savile Row tailor Tommy Nutter, whose clients included Mick Jagger, the Beatles and Elton John. Discusses iconic London shops such as Granny Takes a Trip, Blades, Hung on You and Mr. Fish. Christopher Breward's introduction places the extraordinary revolution within its social and cultural context.
