Yes, I'm sure it does happen here all the time, but wouldnt you need to give me a specific example in order to see the difference between these other examples of sartorial "standards" and a Timberlake versus Grant comparison?
In this instance, the writer is describing person (a) Timberlake, as an adult who is dressed by other adults. He then compares Timberlake to person (b) Cary Grant, who the writer describes as someone that took years to develop his own sense of style. The writer also then takes the time to point out that many people erroneously thought that Grant was dressed by costume departments, but actually dressed himself. Whereas Timberlake is "custumed" out by Tom Ford and any other designer who takes the job.
These descriptions seem to be completely at odds with one another, yet the gist of the article seems to be that Timberlake is following in Grant's footsteps somehow.
