You may jest, but in a thread a while back called 'when did it all go wrong?' there was a lot of discussion to pin down the Slob Revolution to an actual date.
Whilst the Revolution had its roots in WWII or earlier, the consensus seemed to be that the tipping point into Slobdom (or the 'Storming of the Winter Palace' if you know your history) was the late summer/early autumn of 1967.
'The casual idea is the triumph of misguided egalitarianism. By playing to the desire to seem non-judgmental, the Slob has succeeded in forcing his tastes on the world at large (because to object to inappropriate dress would be judgmental)'- Patrick07690
