I’m not saying that everyone should look like they’ve just woke up in a dung heap, but Vietnam fatigues should look like they’ve been through a few rainstorms, petticoat hems should look like they’ve been outdoors, and shirts of all eras should look like they aren’t reacquainted with Chlorox every week.
