Aims & Scope

Critical Studies in Men’s Fashion examines the multi-faceted dimensions of men’s appearance. It uses the holistic definition of dress as a means of examining the tangible and intangible aspects of creating and maintaining appearance. This journal is the first to exclusively focus on men’s dress and topics of gender, identity, sexuality, culture, marketing and business will be discussed. Men’s dress and fashion have been side-lined in scholarship, and this journal provides a dedicated space for the discussion, analysis, and theoretical development of men’s appearance from multiple disciplines. All articles are double-blind peer-reviewed in order to maintain the highest standards of scholastic integrity. Theoretical and empirical scholarship in the form of original articles, manuscripts, research reports, pedagogy, and media reviews are welcome.


Contributions are welcome from any discipline, including but not limited to fashion studies, anthropology, art, art history, business, consumer studies, cultural studies, economics, gender studies, humanities, literature, marketing, psychology, queer studies, religion, sociology, and textiles. Diverse viewpoints and methods are encouraged.

The journal will accept articles that are theoretical or empirical, from any discipline or theoretical foundation. This is done in order to gain a broad understanding of men and fashion and provide a platform that is diverse and accepting of disparate viewpoints. In addition, the journal will also accept media reviews.
