    Fashion underwent a tremendous revolution in the 1960s and 1970s, and Tommy Nutter was one of that revolution's leaders. This biography of the noted fashion designer was fascinating. A man from humble beginnings set the men's fashion world on its head with his bold designs and use o...

    House of Nutter by Lance Richardson is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late April. A quirky, saga-like biography of the brothers Nutter, told mostly back and forth the Atlantic from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. I could say that I enjoyed Tommy's story with its decadent p...

    This was such a fascinating read! Despite being tragically unhip, I find stories about the fashion world delightfully dishy and entertaining - the glamour, the rise and inevitable fall, the drama of it all makes for such interesting reads... David and Tommy Nutter were a pair of true o...

    I received a free copy of this book from Penguin First To Read. I had never heard of the Nutter brothers, but the blurb sounded like an interesting way to view a time in history with a particular subculture. It did not disappoint. Tommy and David Nutter were born to working class f...

    Thank you NetGalley for this advanced eGalley of "House of Nutter: The Rebel Tailor of Savile Row". On the surface, and based on its captivating cover, you'd think this was going to be a book centered around Thomas (Tommy) Nutter--one of the pioneering designers of the once ultra-co...

    This was a such an informative read about the fashion and menswear trade from the late 1960?s and through the rock and roll years when a lot of his clientele were famous rockers among many other celebrities and worldwide famous folks. The book is also about the other Nutter brother w...

    Fascinating subject matter. I thought I knew a lot about late-1960s/1970s music, art, and fashion, and yet I still learned plenty from this book. It turns out I knew next to nothing about Tommy Nutter. This book proves how much consideration Nutter's contributions are due. One thing...

    I think it's easy to forget the toll that the AIDS epidemic took on our creative communities from 1980 til the mid-1990's when medical "cocktails" helped turn the fatal disease into a chronic one. Author Lance Richardson reminds us of that toll in his biography of Tommy Nutter, "The Ho...

    Lance Richardson looks at one of the more interesting characters from Savile Row - you know Tommy Nutter's work even if you think you do not, as all Beatles but for George wore a Nutter suit on the Abbey Rod cover - and fills out the story of the man's life. A well-written and engaging...

    I received this advance reader copy from Crown Publishing via NetGalley. Being a lifelong Beatles fan, when I saw that this book involved Savile Row in London, England, my interest was immediately piqued. For I am well aware that the fancy tailors dominated that road. The Beatles ne...

    ---- Disclosure: I received this book for free from Goodreads. ---- A nice tale about an artistic tailor, which closes in a way that makes one aware this book was really about two people; both the tailor & his brother. Tommy & David Nutter are the kind of people I find interes...

    (minor spoiler alert) I haven't given a book five entire stars in a really long time, but here we are I guess because this book was PHENOMENAL. Not only was the history of the Nutter brothers meticulously researched, but the narrative had a voice to it that made the story engaging a...

    I'm normally a quick study but in this case, I wanted to savour this tome. Not only a story of the legend and saviour of Savile Row, designer and icon, but a touching double-portrait of brothers Tommy and David Nutter during a time of cultural upheaval. Tommy Nutter - an iconoclast ...
