It's funny, back in the 1950s, rich white people ("preppies") would have been the only people in the U.S. you'd see wearing pink and green together. You can probably still see the combination on WASP matrons in Lily Pulitzer dresses on the beaches of Nantucket.

Generally, though, I agree. Americans are poor dressers. We've really let ourselves go over the past thirty years or so.

Classic American dress sense in every frame of every episode, and I love it. Maybe it stems from having part-Indian background, but I love classic Western prep-wear, from Chariots of Fire argyle patterns to Banana Republic high-street interpretations. One day, I will own a Savile Row suit...(hey, I'm allowed to occidentalize, aren't I?)
