Here is an article arguing that denim is a national disgrace, the uniform of the inauthentic and hypocritical. George Will contributes to the discussion here, suggesting as a general rule that: ‘This is not complicated. For men, sartorial good taste can be reduced to one rule: If Fred Astaire would not have worn it, don’t wear it. For women, substitute Grace Kelly.’
I don’t live up to that. But I am proudly denim-less. In fact, believe it or not, I have not even owned a pair of jeans since the 6th grade.
