The most stylish suits in pop-culture history
The Rat Pack (early 1960s)
Your tie knot should match the size of your collar, which should complement your lapel width.
Sean Connery in Dr. No (1962)
See how the shirt sleeves peek out from the suit -- but not too much -- and evenly? If yours don't, see a tailor to get the arms of your jacket shortened (from the shoulders only!).
Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mockingbird (1962, but set in the thirties)
Seersucker is a staple of Southern gentleman attire for a reason; it's a great spring and summer fabric thanks to its unique construction, which makes the fabric more breathable.
The Kennedys (1963)
It's a great '60s formula without the fussiness that can creep into Mad Men style: a traditional-fit (not baggy), neutral-colored suit paired with a crisp white shirt, skinny tie, and white pocket square folded to a single point.
Malcolm X (1964)
Try suiting up in exclusively black, white, and shades of gray for a look that's striking and incredibly easy to execute.
Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)
There's no better way to show confidence than with a bold pattern.
Al Pacino in The Godfather, Part II (1974, but set in the late fifties)
Button up your vest, except for the bottom button.
