There's a lot of great ones out there and it somewhat is dependent on your hair type. Sedu makes some great ones.

I used a blow drier as a teen, but it was the 80's so I'm not sure that counts.

Agreed. And just how much more democratic an age it is was once debated (vis a vis navy hopsack) by two now departed members in a very memorable thread, IIRC.

My hair is like 80 to 90% dry after I towel off. Blow dryers just seem pointless unless you're trying to get your mullet "just so".

That's what I'm talking about. No way you're getting that look with just a towel and some dippidy-doo.

 

I loved this movie.

Anyone have an opinion on when a flared skirt would be advantageous? I know some houses offer this as part of their house cut, but I've never seen a sihlouette where a tighter skirt wouldn't look better. I think @dopey uses some tailors who cut a flared skirt. Would be good to get his thoughts.

Anyone have an opinion?

I like both depending on the cut of the rest.

I think it's important to consider garments in motion as well as static - a flared skirt on a jacket can look better in motion. After some recent experimentation, I have found that I prefer my odd jackets to have more flair in the skirt than my suit jackets - I still don't mean a huge amount of flair but a little more than the norm. The vertical line seems to be far more important in a suit.

I think a bit of flare looks good almost any time. I like the visual break between jacket and trouser rather than a continuous column.

It depends, if the chest isn't sculpted correctly it can look hippy.

Unlike Parker, I do not care for the visual break, but that is just a matter of preference/taste.

 

None of these suggestion really seem to posit an advantage for a flared skirt, though, e.g. for particular body types of different styles of garment.

Thank you for filling in for me in my absence, and with a Steed pic I've never seen before to boot.

I love a flared skirt.
