Not to go completely off-topic here, but I believe that the reason we here appear to be 'anti-fashion' (moreso than 'fashion forum dominated by women) is that anything 'new' or 'hip' doesn't have classic style.
This is a patently false statement. It behooves a critic to be particularly knoweldgeable about the things he criticizes. Moreoever, a discussion about the latest Dior Homme or Gucci show doesn't need to be a lovefest. These are major designers who influence what joe-blow is wearing, whether he knows it or not. And you're probably susceptible to marketing from the big fashion houses too, whether you like it or not. Do you think that it's a coincidence that traditional fabrics like tweed and corduroy are enjoying a resurgence in popularity? Check out the catwalk shows recently.
What does work: timeless style, perfectionist construction, endless comfort, long shelf-life
Just a bunch of catch phrases from a particular brand of lifestyle marketing - says nothing universal.
