    Black suits, Germany, 1966, farewell tour:



    I know the black suit haters will flame away, but I think the Beatles pull off the black suit look without looking like limo drivers. Maybe the key is the Chelsea boots and white sport shirt. Maybeit's the black suit and the hair, that in 1966 said all that needed to be said.

    TBH I think black suit and white shirt is a great look.

    Conclusion: If you're not infinitely cool you're gonna have a hard time pulling this off.

    What is good for entertainers is not necessarily what is good for businessmen.

    I would go even farther and say that what is good for entertainers is never good for businessmen (unless, of course, their business is entertainment).
