The current hipster trend for skinny suits, knit ties, and classic footwear began in the 1960s with the Mod movement. 1960s men’s fashion suits started with the classic American suit of the 1950s but quickly slimmed down into an ultra skinny suit with narrow lapels, tailored waist, and a short jacket that was always single breasted. Patterns could be plain, but that was too boring for most 60s men. Large plaids, checks, and stripes in earth tones or vibrant colors made the 1960s swing. Learn more about men’s 1960s suits.
