I was born in 1970, and was a child of the decade many thought style forgot, so I've got a bit of a sartorial chip on my shoulder. And while I'll never be mistaken for a style authority, it seems to me that the demise of '70s fashion has been greatly exaggerated. We’re starting to see those warm brown tones, big aviators, yellow gold watches, even safari suits, coming back. Though I’m a bit dubious about bell bottom trousers and polyester jumpsuits, if there’s one accessory from that rather polarizing decade I wholeheartedly embrace, it’s the leather cuff, or “Bund” style, watch strap.
