Walk down the street these days, and what do you see? Guys in mesh basketball shorts, dudes in flip-flops and bros in untucked shirts. In other words, men that don’t give a damn about how they look. One of the great things about the ’60s (or, at least, one of the great things about the ’60s as portrayed in Mad Men) is that it was the last era in which people regularly took pains to dress well. Soon enough, hippie casual, disco-era garb and wide lapels would come to dominate fashion. Yet, for a few final years, men regularly wore fedoras, ties, slacks, button-down shirts and shined shoes. Because they not only cared about looking good for themselves, but also cared about looking good for others. You don’t have to see those unclipped toenails, Mr. I Love My Sandals; we do.
