    I liked the Glam and Glitter fashion of the 70's - it made people look hotter then H - E  - Double Hockey Sticks.  Not sure about this part but maybe  the reasons  we don't  dress like that now is because during the 70's the Russians interfered with North America's fashion and entertainment industries by pushing Disco fashion and entertainment. Cheers and happy weekend!

    That was Don's favorite time, too.  The late 60s and 70s.  He was all about midriffs

    and hip-huggers.

    I always thought of him as more of a Opera kind of guy because he is always standing around and saying - me - me - me - meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.  Cheers and happy weekend!

    I never cared about fashion. If I had to pick an era it would be from 2000-2010.

  • I love the Flapper era -  20's?     I also love the 40's and 50's.  I wasn't born until 1963, so I missed the age of men not leaving the house without a hat (Fedora, I think), and women wearing gloves in public.   I always felt I was born a few decades too late.

    I had a g/f who dressed 50ish. She even wore a hat and sometimes gloves. Very classy and very beautiful.

    I was born six years earlier and my mother, who was beautiful and wore clothing well, did wear gloves.  Only time I did was in etiquette classes she sent me to in the later 60s.

    Me too.  I was born in 67.  I always liked the hat and glove attire as well.  People cared about their appearance and how they represented themselves to others.
    Flying on a plane was HUGE!  We'd wear our Sunday-best clothes and manners.  They used to hand out "wings" and we would look in the cockpit and talk to the pilots.  
    Now-a-days, people wear sweats.  They don't seem to care about the pilots who got us there safely but rather if they were late. :(
    I still dress, not in my Sunday-best, but still "rise" to the occasion.

    Well unless we are making a particular statement we dress the way we want to dress or what we have learned is appropriate.  I was too young for fashion then for many years too poor for it.  Then when I could afford it had no idea of what to do.  I will admit I have often depended on friends and even family members to help me choose what will work for me.  But when I see films of how we looked in the early 1960s I am flooded with nostalgia for what I guess I consider a much more hopeful and reasonable time.  Clean cut and efficient men in suits,  Blouses, sweaters, and sensible skirts.  Practical and feminine and simple.  Before we were supposed to "flaunt what we got" (assuming we had anything to flaunt).

    Modesty is the word I was trying to think of. People were more modest then.  Which mostly I still am as far as my choice of clothing.
