1920s: Jazz Era/Suits
Style Icons: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington
This era was all about the art of being dapper. We’re talking tailored three-piece suits, quality suspenders, bow ties, and sharp grooming. We’re guessing it was mainly due to the opulent dress code for club attire during that time, but the look reflected the sound you were hearing out of those trumpets and horns. In a time when music videos were non-existent, embodying this spruce style brought songs like “West End Blues” to life in physical form.
