From the runways of haute couture shows to designer racks at Saks, Joseph Abboud provides an insider's story of what it's like to make it big in the fashion world, an ugly place where people create beautiful clothes. "I've sued and been sued," says Abboud, "screwed and been screwed. I've made a fortune, a name - and some great clothes." He's also figured out how to work every angle in the fashion business, and in "Threads," he pulls back the curtain on copycat name designers, zillion-dollar marketing hustlers, and scheming industry insiders. He also exposes the process of making great clothes, from the conception and design to the fine points of manufacturing and marketing. Along the way, he traces his family roots, shares stories from his turbulent life (to support his clothes habit, he once held a job pedalling a swan boat), and offers insights into what makes a man truly well dressed (illustrated with anecdotes about dressing the likes of Bill Clinton, Tom Hanks, and Rudy Giuliani). In lucid, opinionated prose, Abboud serves as a guide through a world built on appearance and often illusion; this book will change the way you think about the fashion industry.
