I’ve been amused for many years at the annual “news” item in local newspapers concerning men wishing to “dress up” again, and that they will be buying suits. Of course that was just a press release from some men’s clothing association (look to see who’s quoted in those articles). Well, ten years later, we’re still all business casual (or worse–who’s the sales dude in shorts and flip-flops?). During this week’s trip up to Chicago I saw a different approach to trying to get us to buy suits–it’s now casual! Billboards showed a guy in a suit, white shirt and tie but the headline proclaimed it was casual. I guess compared to “black tie” (remember that phrase?).
