a new primer on how the beatles influenced fashion!

by faran krentcil

Apparently, we're not the only ones obsessed with The Beatles and their fashion influence. There's a new book devoted solely to chronicling the Fab Four and their fashion evolution, from nattily dressed Teddy Boys to shaggy '70s wayfarers.

Compiled by journalist Paolo Hewitt, whose previous projects include "The Sharper Word: A Mod Anthology," the book features behind-the-scenes photos, costume archives, and anecdotes about how the band chose their onstage and on-film outfits.

Check it out, and if you have to run to Burberry or Ben Sherman afterwards to get your skinny-tie fix, well... nobody will judge.
