>>10896656 It's not just nostalgia/rose tinted glasses - you're right.
There was a thread a while back comparing senior school photos from like 1975 to 2005 - and around 99/00 there is a very distinct shift in fashion consciousness. It's not just that trends changed - its that people stopped giving a fuck, apparently.
My theory is due to clothes becoming much much cheaper to produce around that time with the push to produce clothing overseas. Therefore clothing became mass produced and more cheaply made - resulting in shittier clothes. People went from a smaller wardrobe of nicer, well fitting, unique stuff to a larger wardrobe of cheap, poorly fitted, mass produced items.
People used to put effort into their outfits, now people just wear the first thing they find in the bargain bin.
Also its interesting to note that while the West has grown more tolerant of LGBTQ people in the past decade or two, on a cultural level we've only become more conservative. Can you imagine someone like Boy George being popular today... Prince?
>>10897812 Didn't finish my last point lel. My point was that there's been stigmatising of fashion especially amongst men - to put effort into an outfit is seen as faggy. Though this has definitely changed in the past few years with the merging of high-fashion and street culture.
