Buttoned Up The East London LineLondon is a centre of cutting edge fashion here the creators of 'the best fashion mag out there' Fantastic Man tell the story of London style through the history of the button down shirt part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London UndergroundEncompassing music street s Fantastic Man is not as I first thought a pretentious pseudonym but a men's fashion magazine that originated in The NetherlandsAlthough this book is part of a series celebrating the 125th anniversary of the London Underground this book has absolutely nothing to do with trains or public transport instead focussing on The peculiarity of buttoning up one's shirt especially in east London; it sounds like a strange topic and it is one and it seems incredible that a 112 page book was published about this subject It sounds like it could be meant as hilariously funny but the writers take themselves very seriouslyThe book consists of a series of different articles written by different writers from the magazine all talking about how several young men in the Shoreditch area of London took to wearing a shirt with the top button done up but without a tie The book includes an interview with Neil Tennant of 1980s band The Pet Shop boys and an article that connects the fashion with mod rock cultureOverall this feels like a very niche interest and the book is padded out by various pictures of young men modelling shirts and street corners in Shoreditch I thought it made for a reasonably interesting read though the chapter where it talked about mod rocker culture felt like it was giving a very uick overview when it could have gone into great depth about this topic I thought this was an okay book but I suspect many audiences would be uite cynical about it

Jop van Bennekom ✓ Buttoned Up The East London Line text

Tyle fashion portraits day and night locations the visual context of east London where clothes factories and workshops used to be night shots where bars and clubs used to be or still are an examination of collar shapes and archive images from fashion and music Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom ar Mixing the inherently yet unintentionally comical in fashion writing here about men buttoning the top shirt button as a uasi philosophical statement about dignity and sexual availability with the inherently visceral in pop music writing peppered with 20 and 30 something men looking twee vulnerable and forlorn It succeeds in making you laugh not what the editors were hired for and in wanting to look good
