    Casino was one of the movies that starred good looking suits.

    It's just 1960s mens' dress; I think next season is agoing to be 1966? So not really "slim", but that's how everyone today perceives it. Many of the actors are wearing sacks, some are wearing suits that are a size two small. Everyone just notices that it doesn't look awful, like many guys in suits today.

    I'm afraid the lapels is the extent of my photochop skills. Here's the shot in black and white for you, if it makes a difference.

    Spoozy- Neither of these work for me, and I think it's the tie that breaks each of them. First tie could have been a solid navy. Second could have been a darker color, whether navy or deep red.

    I like the one on the right. Buttoning the lower button also creates a nice, longer line of the lapel. That can look a bit more elegant IMO. But the DB has to be cut for that. Some are cut to be almost angular and require the higher button. I can't tell if that is the case in these pics.

    I think this looks great. and that jacket......... A+.:inlove:


    The pants and down, however, remind me of something more casual. They still look good but it seems more of a post work/ weekend kind of thing. Just my half a cent.

    The chopped lapels do look more period for the Mad Men theme.
