The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Strikes Again, 1973

(click each to enlarge)

For (Ralph) Lauren, "today's gray flannel suit isn't the old sack, three-button, uptight uniform. There's more individuality in accessories. Today you can wear a striped shirt with gray flannel. We're not bringing back the button-down. And hats are dead except for fun."

1956 is certainly preferable to 1973.
