    Didn't men where hats when they went out almost always in the first half of the last century?  And I'm not talking about ball caps either.  I don't care if you wear it backwards, sideways or over your ears, it's still a ball cap.  People always dressed up when they went out.  How did we get so sloppy looking?

    Ditto. 

    The answer isn't easy. Partly, suits are expensive because their construction isn't conducive to commodified production. 

    T-shirts and baseball hats can be stamped out cheaply.

    In Response to Re: Tom Brady says... : ' The funny part, is that as a straight Louisiana jock from a wealthy family, Manning has likely dressed like this much more often than Tom has because it is how people dress for formal events down here.  His father lives in Audubon place, but used to live three blocks (on First St) from where my apartment is -- I guess it is where his kids grew up as well.

    Well,  I can honestly say that I don't really fall into that category but people definitely seem to dress down more these days.  Going into restaraunts with tank tops and flip-flops when you're not at the beach is dressing down.  Maybe people just want all their tattoos to be seen.  Fedoras, panama hats and suits are obviously a thing of the past.  But it wouldn't bother me any if we went back to that look either.

    This thread has come far afield, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention here that any slack-jawed yokel can buy a suit that fits . . .   and the people who take him in because he's wearing the proper clothing . . .   

    well . . .

    I won't say it.

    Not for nuthin', Laz, but in an even-less-famous quote, Ghandi is purported to have said . . .  "Hey man, y'all gonna finish that sandwich?"
