I think the emotionally healthy response is to say that we don't care how those around us dress. But I think that in our iGent psyches, there's a lot of aspiration, not just for self-creation, but maybe for a little world-building. I think we'd like to live in a world where our aesthetic sensibilities are reflected and valued. A world where most everyone wore a jacket and tie would be fun, exciting, romantic; a world I wouldn't mind living in; and since I know how to do it pretty well, so much the better. Is Styleforum is a proxy for this world?
