Less and less do we wear, or even possess, the heavy outer clothes that earlier generations kept in their wardrobes. Less and less is there any need to wrap up warm in winter. Whether in our own homes, in shops or offices, or in private or public transport, we expect to be kept at a temperature at which the insulation provided by clothing becomes of diminishing importance. The trend to is lighter garments covering a lesser extent of the body. People feel freer and more at ease in skimpier clothing. It can certainly be only a matter of time before everyday clothing at home and in the office is reduced to the level one expects to see on a tropical beach. But will it stop there? The increasing level of sexual freedom permitted by effective contraception and effective anti-STD medication will remove the need for traditional forms of modesty. It will remove the need for sexual restraint, especially as surgery to make all of us beautiful becomes more routine. Will not nakedness come into its own simply because people begin to feel that it is more natural? Such things happen by degrees, and not every office is going to adopt nakedness at once. I suggest that bar staff will be among the first to go naked, fostering a sense of freedom and conviviality. Others in retail outlets will follow. Banks will increasingly be regarded as stuffy if they do not follow suit. Those whose work does not involve contact with the general public will begin to demand that their own workplace environments be kept at the same comfortable ambient temperatures enjoyed by workers in bars, shops and banks – and after that their own nakedness will follow in what can only be a matter of time. Or could I possibly be wrong? Will the nakedness be incomplete? For example, will there not be those unable to resist the urge to wear the Old School Tie around the penis after the shirt has gone?
