Buy top quality so it will last for many yearsOriginally Posted by Most MC posters
That coat looks really dated -- must be at least 10 years old.Originally Posted by MC posters in B&S
We talk a lot about avoiding the whims of fashion, but the trends, they do have a grip on MC. The super high gorge, the narrowish lapels, the incredibly slim and short coats. One day, in the not too distant future, these will be the styling cues used to identify "dated" suits in the B&S forum. I'm curious as to people's thoughts on the matter. Can you see yourself wearing a low gorge or huge shoulder pads when they're back in fashion? Will you update your wardrobe to reflect the changing trends? Or will your styling preferences get stuck in time, like old men who think it's still 1973?
P.S. Before someone gives me the "classic style/conservative makers" spiel, I'll note that even stodgy ol' Oxxford dates -- just think of how many are dismissed for sad lapels and low gorges.
