Watching BBC Four’s current series of fashion programmes? If not, shame on you! Hot on the heels of British Style Genius, Style on Trial has the premise of evaluating each decade from 1940s to 1980s in terms of its sartorial elegance. Whilst the programme takes the rather tired focus of fashion=womenswear, there’s enough on show to keep it interesting for us guys. Upcoming: the 70s and 80s (the latter featuring John Taylor from Duran!) Check broadcast times here, or in these days of convenience just watch the whole season via the fabulous BBC iPlayer.
