Icon - Chet Baker

Where has this sense of casual togetherness and glamour gone in male dressing? Why does donning a blazer mean you're going somewhere/working/dressed up? Why can men no longer wear hats without, by and large, looking somewhat douchey? What has happened?

Maybe things have gotten too complicated, too easy, too disposable. 

We no longer invest. We pick fads over timelessness. Outlandish wins over elegant and restrained.

Shrugging limitations is a good thing but has freedom continued to foster creativity? Or has it made something stagnant? Have we lost something more than just etiquette in dress? 

Check Chet and his music out. Simplicity never ages.
