100 Years of Men's Fashion and Accessories

See 100 Years of Men's Fashion in Three Minutes

Lately, video evolution shorts are allover the Internet. It makes sense. They're an easy way to compress a ton of information into a short time. Now Mode Studios, the people who brought you "100 Years of Women's Fashion," have released "100 Years of Men's Fashion." In three minutes you can see how much style has changed over the century for men. 

Like how in 1925 every man apparently dressed like your average Pitti Uomo attendee (0:24). Or how things got a little gangster by 1935 (0:39). In 1955 guys like Brando and Dean altered the sartorial landscape with their rebel cool: jeans, white tee, and motorcycle jacket (1:00). And then came the dark ages. The '60s were okay but, 1975? Sheesh. Despite the fact that Tom Ford has worked wonders with a '70s aesthetic, that was one grim polyester-clad decade. Of course the '80s and '90s weren't much better (seriously, why puka shells?). But it is nice to see that 2005 is still hanging in there with the Jersey Shore crowd. 

And now that we're in the midst of the #menswear movement, 2015 looks decent, although who knows what we'll think about it 10 years from now. Maybe that all those chambray shirts and skinny jeans photos come back to haunt us.

Warning, content below represents a man's libidinous fascination with an automobile. It is not Lolita; after all Bradley Berman, the author, is not Nabokov and the Wraith is not underaged. Nonetheless, I find myself simultaneously repulsed... and seduced. David J. Katz

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
