There was an interesting point raised in the comments section of the most recent post - that the suit will be resurrected as a “means of individual expression” - meaning that while it becomes less of a ‘uniform’, it will instead be embraced as a point of difference.
This intersection between modern culture and tradition is especially pertinent in the realm of tv and film, where the suit is often portrayed through an ‘aspirational’ lens - in turn popularising the idea of sartorialism in an era of decreasing formality.
Part of the appeal of Cillian Murphy’s character, Tom Shelby, lies in his sartorial proclivities, with many subconscious associations between his alpha male status and tailored menswear being drawn by viewers of the Peaky Blinders show.
