I never thought I’d be writing about the late 60s-70s, much less feel like it’s had an impact on my style. Perhaps it’s because I grew a beard and started growing out my hair.
But certainly the wide lapels, long collars, and runaway collars already have a place in my existing style? Read on.
Long post alert.
Nothing is really ever new in menswear. The first “recent” trend to come back was the high waist and pleats , though I’ve been wearing those two for years thanks to vintage clothing. The next trend that has been sweeping the contemporary menswear circles isn’t really a design thing, but an affectation on how you wear your shirt collar. The thing is, this has been done since the 1920’s and continues to be done by veterans of the vintage community.
