The main factors in why people dress down much more today compared to previous generations?

Your thoughts on this?

Only in todays society can you show up to dinner at a five star steakhouse and have someone be surprised to see someone dressed up in a suit.

Same thing goes for a funeral.

I think the only time people find it normal to see someone in a suit is at a wedding.

What factors have caused the average person to want to dress down to functions that once upon a time, you knew you had to dress up?

Also when did dressing up become a chore? People should feel good about putting on a suit and looking sharp.

Nowdays people complain more than not when they are told there is a dress code. It blows my mind really to hear people whine about having to dress up.
