Bill Cunningham Forecasts a 'Peacock Revolution': VIDEO

Peacock

From the streets of Manhattan, Bill Cunningham has spotted a new trend in menswear. The New York Times fashion photographer and living legend has released a YouTube video where he features suits that refuse to sacrifice polish for pizazz. He calls this new wave of dandyism the "peacock revolution." The looks he features are smart and covetable, but Cunningham's irresistible personality clinches the video's must-watch status. In Cunningham's words:

If I'm not mistaken, I think I'm watching, on the streets of Manhattan... the first regiment of a new Peacock revolution. It's almost inconceivable that it would happen, but something is going on with men's clothing... after decades of being torn, shredded, deconstruction — I'm now seeing a sartorial splendor.

Men's Fashion Revolution in Full Swing, Says NYT 'Man on the Street' Bill Cunningham: VIDEO

Cunningham

There's a men's fashion revolution underway from '30s styles to a revival of grunge and mouth grilles, says NYT man on the street Bill Cunningham:

"There's something in the air and it's all being reflected not in women's clothes but in men's clothes...It's very easy just to laugh and pass it off as 'oh this is just going along with gay marriage and all this, they can dress any way they want' but it's much more than that. Much more than that. The peacock is emerging. He's been a sparrow since mid-Victorian times."
