"Men of Color: Fashion, History, Fundamentals" (Artisan), a new book by Lloyd Boston, is one of the first to explore the legacy of African American male style.

From the zoot suit to oversized jeans, from the elegance of Nat King Cole to the cool of Samuel L. Jackson, this sleek coffee-table book celebrates the influence of African Americans on the fashion world with hundreds of celebrity photographs.

The book also serves as a guide, outlining key elements necessary for creating a personal style. Boston turns to fashion designers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Jeffrey Banks, accessory designer Leonard Bridges and stylist Martin Cooper of Burberry's to help direct men in finding their look.
