The nationwide prohibition on alcohol was ignored by many. There was a revolution in almost every part of human activity. Fashion was no exception!
From left to right we have an elegant evening suit with a wider lapel creating a wider shoulder shape with a narrow waist created by a low fitted waistcoat.
Next we have a morning suit , with contrasting footwear to set off the contrast waistcoat! Please also note the use of the peaked lapel again for that statement look!
Then we move onto our third outfit a tweed jacket with a notch lapel and contrast waistcoat and fashionable bow tie in front of a white collar on a blue shirt! If you look closely even though it's the same model his shoulders look slimmer! As your eye line is drawn to his waistcoat and bow tie! A slightly less formal attire!
Finally we have a contrasting Jacket, these are known as either boating jackets or even a smoking Jacket! After dinner attire the simple pocket square colour co-ordinates the light coloured trousers for a formal look! Darker colours are used on the torso for a slender looking silhouette!
Mr Dicaprio we can certainly say you have dressed suitably for the era and stand shoulder to shoulder with your predecessors below! It would'nt be right not to mention the previous elegant gentlemen who have also played Jay Gatsby! Alan Ladd, the dashing Robert Redford and our own Toby Stephens! They all look so elegant! Contrasting colours also used with bespoke tailoring can set you apart from the normal attire!
Well, this year has already given us a glimpse of summer, and that can mean only one thing, time to lighten up our wardrobes in the hope that we reach those temperatures again. When it comes to suiting, we really should be pushing the heavy wools to the back and bringing out the light weight wools and linens.
I would opt in favour of , or our if you're looking for something for the office. It is nice and lightweight, but in a range of colours suitable for the office.
If you're heading off on holiday, or just want something more casual, try our Linens. There are some fantastic colours on offer this year. Have a look at my Linen Suiting blog to see some ideas. Of course, the three piece can be just as useful in summer as it is in winter. Think about leaving your jacket in the office when out for lunch. Wear your waistcoat instead. This will maintain the ultra smart appearance, whilst still keeping you cool. I've seen many of Edinburgh 's streets recently swarming with blokes who are cutting a dash with a waistcoat and trouser combo as well as a few famous faces.
Two of A Suit That Fits favourites do this look in the own way; Gary Barlow goes with his signature high chested six button waistcoat with a slight lossening of the tie to give it just a dash of the casual. David Beckham goes for a light grey waistcoat and trousers, worn with a tie but rolling up his sleeves to give his otherwise smart look a sporty feel. Colour also is an important factor when getting a new summer suit. I wouldn't advice a light grey or cream linen suit in the winter for instance but when the sun shines they are perfect colours. Light grey is a great shade for the office and cream for casual. It has never really gone out of style, proven by the image above. On the very far left we have Robert Redford in his younger days showing that separates are the way to go in his double breasted cream waistcoat with lapels and matching trousers. In the middle is Brad Pitt in a more relaxed outfit, wearing a two piece cream suit with an open collar shirt and last but not least we have P Diddy. He is wearing a two button notched collar, linen, cream suit with silver pocket square.

When you put aside sound it is vital that all visual details are highly considered. The focus now relies on what we can see, a person's dress becomes highly important, telling us a lot about the character.
With this in mind The Artist has also cast colour aside to boot. Textural depth steps forward and striking the right balance between white and black becomes paramount.
Above all it's the shades of grey that give the detail, but the extremes that define and hold focus on the image. All these tools and observations are things you can use to your advantage in your day to day life. Peaked lapels feature heavily and this stunning double breasted three piece in a tweed cloth fits this gentleman's (Al Zimmer) rounder body shape. The lapel gives him presence when compared to the gentleman next to him. The key thing to remember though when picking a work suit is context. Bear in mind your profession and ask yourself the relevant questions, such as, is a peak too much for your job? As an accountant probably yes but for a PR executive this more flamboyant look could be perfect.
The Artist features iconic tails, satin peaked lapels, double breasted waistcoat and satin covered buttons. The difference in textures carry well in black and white. If you're getting married this year and want to go black tie this is the look I'd go for! Classic, classy and a real stand out style. It screams elegance and success from the tip of the peak, to the fall of the tail. The subtle textures carry as well across a room full of guests as they do through the media of film.
'Disheveled' I think is the word, with the rumpled suit emphasising George's state of mind. Keeping sharp will always give you more confidence and make you more effective in you work life, it's also a good trick for catching a ladies eye. Remember Barney from 'How I Met Your Mother,' the cheesy lines don't work but the sharp suit will turn heads.
And what mention of The Artist would be complete with out a mention of little Uggy. He ultimately proves that subtle detail like a bow tie can make even a dog fit for the red carpet.
