Good discussion on Radio 4’s The Today Programme yesterday, on what makes British style and whether taste has really declined. Interesting points include the fact that Anthony Eden was considered suspiciously well dressed, cared a bit too much and was perhaps too ‘European’, rather than being a style icon in Britain. Also the argument that young men care more about what they wear today than they did 40 years ago, given the reduced cost of clothing.
The discussion can be heard here. Not sure whether US audiences will be able to listen as I know BBC iPlayer can’t be accessed abroad.
