Why are Brits so scruffy?




With London Fashion Week in full swing and desingers showing their The One Show's asking where has the sense of occasion gone where British dress in concerned?


There once was a time when formal dress was the only acceptable attire to attend church, go to the theatre or even get married. Now it seems anything goes.


The Prime Minister, Gordon Brown made headlines when he was recently pictured sporting a casual look minus his suit and tie, as he appeared on the world stage in Beijing.


It's been said that nowadays suit, shirt and tie is seen as too old-fashioned.


Have Brits become too scruffy? If you're friend, family, or even foe needs a wake-up call, send us your pictures and let The One Show do it for you.
