Description

A fascinating history of Irishmen, woven through the clothes they wear.

Taking the clothes they wore as a starting point, Paul Galvin skilfully weaves together a collection of stories of Irish men who defined the culture and mood of their time.

In ‘Push’ he tells the story of the legendary Walker Brothers – cyclists and soldiers who pedalled through a storm for Ireland at the 1912 Stockholm Games. In ‘Born Mad’, discover another side to Samuel Beckett – sartor and prolific sportsman who had knockout power as a champion boxer in school. In ‘Boland’ we learn about Harry Boland’s background as a trained tailor, and in ‘Jack’ we encounter Jack B. Yeats at the Olympic Games in Paris.

These are just some of men who have inspired Paul’s own fashion collections and whom he writes about here in a fascinating collection that shines a light on how history is woven into the clothes Irishmen wear.
