In this 1922 VOGUE MAGAZINE article, a Parisienne with a good many thoughts regarding menswear went to some length to impart that men are dressing worse, not better, and the substitution of the dinner jacket (read: "Tuxedo") for the tail-coat is an example of the slovenliness to come.

"You are entirely wrong in imagining that we pay no attention to the way men dress...The truth is that while we may say nothing, we do not in the least consent, and we find, messieurs, that for some time now you have been very much changed, and for the worse."

Pictured above is the Hollywood actor Clark Gable, as he appeared during his salad days.
