The big problem with picking up an old suit is that smell of mothballs (not to mention the worry of someone having died in it). So how about a new suit that has the cut and features of a classic – like the Brooks Brothers JFK suit.
It’s full title is the Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald Solid Two-Button 1818 suit, but as the design is based on suits made for John F, Kennedy in the early 60s, it’s got the JFK tag. Slim fitting, just two buttons, narrow lapels, flat-fronted trousers and a centre vent at the rear, not to mention all manner of detailing you’ll only expect to find in a tailor’s handbook.
If you’re after a rat pack look, you can pick the suit up for £599.
