So there was this one golden age we reached around 1935, and then it was downhill from there. That doesn't sound terribly plausible (imagine if someone said it about art of a certain brief period -- of course some people do say this, but it's an odd view). Were there any other golden ages? If, say, the toga also achieved objective goodness, would it be right to wear one today? If you want to answer that question negatively you'll have to concede something to the contextualists. And that way lies the ditching of your pocket squares (at least).
