This just in from T, the New York Times‘s style magazine: men have stopped “deluding themselves that it’s somehow more manly to look like a bum.”

“The frumpy Dockers and the men’s version of mom jeans and the oversize shirts billowing like jibs have been bagged up and shipped to Goodwill,” Guy Trebay informs us in his essay “The Rise of the Well-Dressed Man.” So at least the bums will luck into appropriate clothing.

“A generation raised on the insult-to-the-eyes that was casual Fridays has suddenly discovered a novel new uniform: the suit,” Trebay writes. We men at the Reader will surely discover it any day now.
