Why did men's apparel get so boring?

Finally went to see Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest last night. The movie is lots of fun with some pretty amazing special effects. But watching that brings up the question, why has men's clothing gotten so dull?

Historically, it wasn't that long ago that men wore ruffs, lace, and colourful clothing. I find guys with shoulder length hair and knee high (or taller) boots to be quite appealing. And yet the standard business suit is just so boring. The tie is the only allowable splash of colour.

This means that I'm very fond of movies with pirates, musketeers or other period pieces of similar style. It's the only time you can see guys wearing great clothes without fear of being thought a poof or an artist.
