Here is an excerpt:
"The clothes that people wear help to define them – they make a statement to the world about who they are and how they want to be seen. Trends come and go, but it takes a special garment to develop the kind of popularity that can keep going strong for decade after decade. Think about the kind of clothing you used to wear ten years ago, or twenty – go ahead, there’s no judgment here. Most people would probably find it difficult to look at an old picture of themselves and not cringe a little at the old styles they used to think looked good on them…and that’s ok! It’s the nature of fashion for looks to go in and out of style – what’s once new and cutting edge becomes old and dated – and given enough time, maybe goes around and becomes new again once more.
... Most people who give velour a try quickly come to love it. Even the most dedicated velour connoisseurs may not know much about the history of velour, its iconic status within the fashion industry, its place in popular culture, or even what makes it different from similar fabrics like velvet or velveteen. And that’s where this book comes in! By the time you finish it, you’ll be a bona fide velour expert. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry – you may find yourself feeling a little romantic, or nostalgic for the halcyon days of yesteryear when everything seemed a little simpler, a little freer, and so much more…stylish. The one thing we can promise is that you’ll be entertained, and you’ll learn a little bit along the way."
