Oh, I so disagree with that.

For every one (rare) Beau Brummell there are (and always have been) thousands of followers (not leaders) of fashion.

Football fans, nuns, mods and rockers, all those reverse-baseball-cap wearers, goths etc.

In fact, how is it we can look at a photo and say "That's from the 20s (or 40s or 50s or 70s...)" if fashion was individualistic?

No one is going to take my right away from imitating everyone else so I can display my individuality! Angry

RE: Dutch fashion police.
Does that mean my dad might can arrested in Netherland for wearing white socks with sandals or having phanny pouch (or both)? He also used to wear a teal colored polo shirt, but I think his new wife managed to get rid of it (thankfully).

No idea. But I wouldn't risk the visit.

I love a uniform...I don't want to express myself all the damn time. Might be sour grapes, though, because I'm not that great at it.

However, I appreciate and admire people who have a more adventurous approach to dressing themselves than I do.

I'm usually in workout clothes or a little skirt/top/tights/boots. I doubt the Dutch police would stop me, but back in the day a Chicago cop once came up to me on the street, complimented me on the shirt I was wearing, and asked me on a date.

Hahaha. Well, we are all members of the times we live in but within each era there is variations to choose from. I know a gal that wears a lot of 1950's stuff and vintage clothing.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
