Are Americans dressing too casually?


    Guests: Lisa Hayes, Jonathan Waldor, Arienne Thompson

    Look around on the street and at work – t-shirts, hoodies, flip flops, sweats and jeans are everywhere.  Casual dress has become the norm.  But have we  become too comfortable in our clothes?  And does it matter?  Marty talks about the trend of dressing down  with LISA HAYES, Program Director of the Fashion Design Program at Drexel University, JONATHAN WALFORD, Curator of the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge, Ontario and author of Sixties Fashion, and ARIENNE THOMPSON, fashion and celebrity report for USA Today.
