I know it’s a tad late to claim this, but I think I saw it coming – a major sign was that all the (young, male) uni students who come in to help our (young, female) PR team out at busy times have been turning up in shirt-and-skinny-tie combos instead of the usual tshirts. And a friend who works for a giftwrap business told me that they’re getting requests to organise boxes to hold shirt-and-tie gift sets for Christmas 08.
Which is great news. There are very few men who don’t look better (and sexier) in a really well cut and well fitting suit. Sadly though, very few men seem to know what a really well cut and well fitting suit is. If all that results from this formal wear revival is a load of old, shiny M&S suits being pulled from the back of wardrobes and into service, I think I might cry.
