My 20th Style Eye video! This is officially a ‘long-running series’.
This video started off with the simple goal of finding someone who blows their nose on something designed to blow your nose on. It quickly devolved into nervous insanity at I was talking to stylish, serious, and handsome men who have better things to do than bike around all day asking people about pocket squares. At some point I realized that the story was really about generational divides in fashion- we see something that was designed with a functional purpose turning into something purely ornamental, and then reach a postmodern phase where the current generation is actively repurposing other accessories that no longer have relevance into ones that do.
