If you shouldn’t own this fantastic book yet – now’s the moment to buy it!

The shop of the National Maritime Museum is having “Dressed to Kill” by Amy Miller on special offer – for only £5.00 (regular price: £ 20.00)!!!

DRESSED TO KILL
British Naval Uniform, Masculinity and Contemporary Fashions 1748-1857
by Amy Miller

Dressed to kill

This book is an absolute “must have” for anybody with even the remotest interest in the RN or fashion of that time. The fantastic pictures aside, there is a lot of interesting background information on the way fashion influenced society, how rank and status were expressed by means of clothing etc., and how wearing the right coat at the right time could make a career (and the wrong one break it).

Still undecided? Read my review!

      On 28 September, 2011, yes. But not back in October 2009 when the article was pubished. Now it’s sold out, so prices are ridiculous.
