Halloween is right around the corner, and the holiday is a great excuse to turn some heads wearing an impeccably-designed suit or Halloween-inspired formal wear.

Hollywood’s Rat Pack
During the 1960s, the Rat Pack was Hollywood’s ultimate “in” crowd. Consisting of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart, Sammy Davis, Jr., and friends. The Rat Pack epitomized style and elegance along the Las Vegas strip. These were the last days of true Hollywood glamour for men, and it was characterized by impeccable tailoring. Slim ties, fitted dress shirts, and sharkskin suits were all staples of the Rat Pack style. However, the fashion statement they made, can easily be re-created with a stylish slim-fit tuxedo jacket
. Next, get some of your friends to wear similar suits, and you’ll be quickly mistaken for former Hollywood royalty.

Don Draper from TV’s Mad Men,
was a 1960s style icon. Recreating this look will require a fitted suit with pants and shirts that offer flattering lines to contour the body. A suit or tux that is well-tailored is essential, but you don’t need to feel restricted wearing a classic black tux. Don Draper’s style embraced color, including blue, gray, and rich brown. Just add a skinny tie to complete the look!
Tony Soprano had a variety of clothing in his wardrobe, ranging from Hawaiian shirts to two-tones. However, when he needed to look more professional, Tony was able to dress up like a real mob boss. Tony tended to have a more refined and elegant taste than the rest of his crew in his black suits and tuxes, and he often went for pinstripes, if possible. When it comes to pulling off a Halloween costume as Tony Soprano, remember that is always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas
One of the most memorable moments from the movie Dumb and Dumber was Lloyd and Harry’s appearance at the charity ball. While most of the guests were in classic black tuxedos, Harry showed off his own unique style in a baby blue tux
with matching cane and top hat. Lloyd stood out even further by sporting a blaze orange tuxedo. Grab a friend and put these over-the-top looks together for Halloween this year, and you’ll have no problem being recognized instantly by your friends and family.
