    I remember the first time Dad took me to the menswear store in Storm Lake, IA to get a suit. I don’t remember exactly when, but it was more than 50 years ago just based on when I lived there. From this distance in time, I don’t remember why it made a lasting impression. First steps into adulthood? Mental trauma?Report

    The cartoon is a vanished world; there’s no longer a “short pants to long pants” transition for boys in the US.

    For women, there are a few transitions, usually involving undergarments…..I’ll leave it at that.Report
