The Thing About Fashion...

This post popped up on my Facebook feed. It was nice to see Angelo Flaccavento back in a bow tie, however, notice that he is wearing a three button jacket with a high notched lapel. I found this rather amusing because just last night an acquaintance asked me for some advice. He said 'Tell me, is this suit okay to keep? It is fairly old but I paid a lot of money for it and I don't want to throw it out'. To which I replied 'This black three button high notched lapel is so out of date that you may as well store it until it comes back into fashion in a retrospective sense'. And then bloody Angelo pulls one out and wears it in this photo, which then begs the question 'Well, is it coming back in again?'.

The trouble with fashion is it is so often a process of picking old things up and making them new again. Whilst I hated and always hated the three button high notched lapel suit, I can understand why it might be looked at again because every other avenue of suiting has been explored in the last three years and it is possibly the final frontier... But I beg of you, people out there, please, let us not return to the three button high notch. I couldn't bear it to tow the party line.
