But. There is one area where the challenge is not being met in any significant way, as yet: coloration. Certainly all one need do is walk into a men's department, or larger menswear store anywhere, and you will see what I mean; the endless racks, and stacks of clothes that are restricted to black, gray, and navy blue that stretch into the distance.
Even in my own internet search for images that intrigue, and present something worthy of discussion, less than 10 percent of what I find in the menswear category shows anything outside of what I describe. It's almost relentlessly black.
I believe that part of it is simply the force of tradition. After the beginning of the 19th century, when color and extravagant pattern faded out of common usage for men, we began to equate, both socially, and psychologically, a sober color palette with responsibility, power, and a willingness to take an active part in a democratic society. The presence of colors outside of the narrow range permitted, became associated with effete behaviors, and suspect morals. It is the one place where we have made few inroads to change. Men still harbor these sorts of feelings, and the society in which we live still actively supports them. That support manifests in ways both obvious and subtle. The obvious being that bright hued clothing simply isn't made very much. But the more subtle evidence is in the media, in how men are clothed in advertising, film, television, and live performance, like music. Think of any red carpet event outside of the VMAs and its nothing but black and white, with very little variation within that.
Till that day, we will have to deal with oceans of blandly dark, anonymous hues.
