In 1910, 70% of women's clothing and 40% of men's clothing was produced in New York. Today, the textile industry in N.Y.C. is nonexistent. 39% of our clothing is now imported from China, and the quality we used to have is nonexistent.
All attest to the powerful human need to conform to the ideals of a current trend, and to be seen as part of a cultural whole. But must this need rule our personal style?
