Men’s Fashion Illustration Guide

Fashion illustrations have always been an integral part of the Gentleman’s Gazette, because we adore the classic 1930’s men’s style and at that time fashion illustrations were probably at their peak. Over more than a decade Sven Raphael Schneider built a huge archive with fashion illustrations from the U.S., Great Britain, Germany, France and Italy which contains several thousand images. He shares this collection on the Gentleman’s Gazette and explains how you can adapt the elegance of these drawings to your own style today.

Below, you will find everything we published related to Men’s Fashion Illustration but the crown jewel is certainly the ebook Gentlemen of Style, which we will send you for free if you sign up for our complimentary newsletter.
