If you back through old photos of dressed-up men, you’ll like see a few wacky turns on the men’s suit: the lapels of the 70s, the too-long, boxy jackets of the 80s, the baggy double-breasteds of the 90s. But, you’ll also note that there’s a basic look that hasn’t changed much in nearly a century: the basic, well-cut, no-frills suit that has made men look like a million bucks for the last 100 years. Cause if you get the right suit the first time, treat it well, and update your shirt and tie every once in a while, a great suit never goes out of style.
