I included a close-up of today's Man-Morsel so you could enjoy the mixing of prints on his tie/shirt/jacket. Since men's formal/fancy-dress attire is often limited to suits, the unique aspects are expressed through the selection of colors, prints, and fabric choices. You'll also be able to see his suspenders underneath--which I feel is making a huge comeback as we slowly transition beyond 60s style.

Mad Men helped bring skinny suits and slick hair into popularity--but I've been noticing a handful of men starting to wear fashion-forward menswear that is inspired by the higher-waisted and looser trousers of the 20s-40s. I appreciate these looser fits--but my height (or lack thereof) is best flattered by slimmer silhouettes. It takes a tall drink of water to be able wear such loosely-draped suits and still look chic!

On a final note--his shirt has a spread collar, which has lately replaced the standard point collar as the popular style of choice for dapper Man-Morsels. I prefer a medium-width to thick-width tie with a substantial windsor knot to best compliment a spread collar. For men who require a little practice in the art--this is a good video to help you tie a tie.
