  1. In men’s wear the 1960s was the birth of Mod especially John Stephens of Carnaby Street. Sterns in New York was the 1st store to open a John Stephens boutique. Also the sixties were the beginning of men’s designer names. Bonwit Teller opened the 1st Pierre Cardin boutique and the 1st Bill Blass boutique in the United States in the sixties. Lord and Taylor opened the first John Weitz boutique as well.

  2. The Best of The Best , in my opinion, were the 20 years from 1966 – 1986. From Mod . to hippie to the “ new shaped , fitted suits and sptcts. from Cardin & YSL to Armanis new lapel and shoulders to the start of unconstructed tailored. Nothing was more transformational or inspirational than those years ….Just my opinion !!

  3. Excellent observations and very accurate .Pierre Cardin definitely changed the shape of men’s clothing.
