While vintage 1920s mens suits are hard to find, you can achieve the roaring twenties look with the right 1920s inspired new suit. From the early 20s slim Jazz Age suits to the wider Oxford Bags at the end of the decade, these new 1920s style men’s suits combine the modern fit with the styling of decades past. Slim fit suits in bold patterns (e.g. wide stripes, plaid, and herringbone) with a 3 or 4 button closure, wide lapels, and flat front trousers are all very ’20s. Grey, brown, and blue suits were the most common colors (never black, unless formal). In summer, a striped seersucker or ivory linen suit was both cool and fashionable. A navy blazer or striped blazer with white trousers was also a summer look popular with musicians, barbershop singers, and college kids.
