Très Chic:  the Bum Look?

First, it became fashionable for middle-aged men to sport a couple days’ stubble, ala Brad Pitt (on, umm, older men, it just makes them look unemployed).  See, “Hirsute Conceits.”

Now, I’ve started to notice grown men (vs. their teenage sons) going around at social functions and even business presentations with their shirttails out.

Exhibit A:  the guy onstage (photo above) introducing Apple’s new iPhone 5 yesterday.

Next Casualty:  Personal Grooming?

What’s next:  not combing your hair (assuming you have any left)?

Not brushing your teeth?

Wearing tattered clothes? 

Scratch that last one:  witness all the “vintage clothes,” “distressed jeans,” etc., out there — albeit more associated with teenage girls than middle-aged men.

So far.
