In my holiday boredom I've just watched all of ABC's 'The Liberals' series.
Some sartorial observations:
- Extremely traditional - Chelsea and bal' boots galore. The 3 piece is standard until the 80s.
- The sartorial decline starts in the 80s where you notice Howard wearing Anthony Squires. By the 90s Hewson's collar gap becomes a chasm, and multi coloured ties become mainstay.
- If you want an image of a well dressed Australian, its Malcolm Fraser. His sense of style was impeccable - even in the commentary he sported tweed.
