But that’s so 1970s… These days, men’s fashion is a billion dollar industry and men are paying more attention to what they wear, and how they wear it.

You might want to toss or store that. The suit that you wore to a wedding last month? Keep. The jeans you were hoping would fit again one day? Toss. Your lucky espadrilles? Keep.
