I read that, it may have been quotes, the king said to his son for some important event, that he could not wear the terrible new high fashion that him and his friends were wearing. Some how the creases were mentioned in it as the major eye sore. Even the kings son was of wild fashions. And, of course, everybody wears creases now. And, we'd think we'd look ridiculous without them, nowadays. Went looking for the quotes, but, couldn't find them.
Seems like I heard a WWl veteran say creases were a new military requirement. Short hair was a military requirement, too, which got two generations..
