All right. Um…how do I say this? All right. I was watching the “Donna Reed Show” on YouTube. (For those of you who don’t know, the Donna Reed Show ran from 1958 to 1966.)
I was simply taken aback. I was amazed at the (for lack of a better word) dignified way people dressed back then. (I don’t think dignified is the best word here but it’s the best I could really come up with.)
Not just the ladies like Donna with the neat hairdo and the cute dress, but the men like Alex too. The well pressed suits when you went to the office, the neatly combed hair, the shined shoes, and not to mention the dapper fedora.
This sort of got me thinking, “What happened to that? Back then, you dressed like you actually cared how you looked.” I’m sure that I’m not the only one who thinks this, and I am fully aware there are people who still do take pride in their appearance. I just feel like it’s not as prevalent in the culture as it once was. Anyone else feel this way? What could be done to change that, if anything? (Civil responses, please. I’m new here.)
