About the only issues argued about more on SF in the seven or so years I've been here have been the appropriateness of black suits (and we're about due for a new thread on that) and brown shoes (I think we've settled that one). And over the years some have argued we can blame it on the Boomers, economic factors, designers, retailers, Silicon Valley, Bill Clinton's loose WH dress code (and now Obama I suppose), the death of bespoke, an increasingly casual culture, and a...

SF group think is a lot like what my father spreads on his garden in the spring. It can be useful but it also stinks much of the time. Ventless may be out of fashion but it is never out of style. It's a look that goes back at least seven decades and had its foremost practitioner in Cary Grant. Like others have said, if done right it looks spot on, if done poorly it looks like hell.
