Clothes In Cold Weather Summary

Clothes In Cold Weather by Moss

This book in the series "Costumes and clothes" looks at the many different types of clothing worn throughout the world in cold weather. The development of clothing is discussed although particular emphasis is laid on the present day form of dress. Also considered are the function and importance of clothing in work, sport and leisure. Materials and types of clothing from different regions are examined and the author looks at how varying cultures and traditions have adapted their materials and colours to form their own styles of dress to combat the cold weather. As well as examining past modes of dress, the book considers the effective materials available nowadays and illustrates how people can now wear fashionable clothes even in very cold weather. The text is complemented by illustrations and photographs, a further reading list and glossary.
