In anticipation of our usual discussion of the triumphs and debacles of celebrity formalwear at tonight's 81st Academy Awards, I thought some perspective might be in order.

Here for your enjoyment is a random sampling of looks various male attendees have sported at The Oscars in previous decades...

1999...


1989...


1979...


1969...


1959...


1949...


1939...


1929...
(pre-gala, so sorry... no fancy-pants photos)

As for me, I am stunned as to how well Patrick Swayze represented classic formalwear standards in 1989... mullet and all!

I found it striking that until the 70's how classic an conservative Oscar wear was. Though I didn't post them, there was a LOT of white tie at the early events.

Look at Ernest Borgnine and Jack Lemmon pull it off (from 1956)...


I am once more humbled by the WWII generation...:cool::aportnoy:
