This is a style that was first part of high-fashion men's looks in the mid- to late 1970s, when it was shown with "unconstructed," natural-fiber jackets with pushed-up sleeves and turned-up collars and pleated, natural-fiber pants. The five-o'clock shadow was part of that, and I remember one fashion reviewer commenting that it made men look like a 1920s vagabond or hobo. In the eighties, it went more mainstream, as did pushed-up sleeves and turned-up jacket collars, only this time in brighter colors and with bigger shoulders.
