It wouldn't surprise me if there were serious cultural changes that went on in the department after 9/11. I had no exposure to them prior. However, what I can say with a degree of certainty is that ambassadors are too diverse to fall into any one sartorial category, and the diffuse and independent nature of many postings means that the central culture isn't as strong as it might be in other institutions. At least when it comes to clothes.
