The Basics of your Life

As we muddle through our "recession," clothing that evokes our mythological belief in a simpler past becomes more and more attractive. In recognition of fashion's "return to value," fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger sent a clean traditional line of clothing down the runway in his Fall Winter 2009 Fashion Show. The clothes were keepers - traditional duds that are the building blocks of a well dressed man or woman's wardrobe.

Of particular note where the soft jerseys used to create a Hollywood-in-the fifties look in the women's line. Also of note was the short skimpy cut of the men's suit jackets which reminded me of a prep school boy who shows up a family party in last year's slightly outgrown suit - a fun choice for men who are not quite ready to shop at Brooks Brothers.

I also liked the outback hats.
