Some vintage clothes are obviously from their era, and stick out like sore thumbs. ¬†Others, though, like this vintage Brooks Brothers suit from the late ’60s or early ’70s, are so classic in styling that they look right at home in the modern world.

Suit: Vintage Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $20

Shirt: Modern Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $5

Tie: Modern Brooks Brothers, discount store, $10

Shoes: Vintage Nettletons, Ebay, $100

Tailoring: $20

Total: $155

If I’d paid retail prices: Hard to say with the vintage items, but to get clothes of this quality today would easily set me back $1500 or more.
