After my 5 year high school reunion, a bunch of my classmates took a party bus downtown. For the streets of Cleveland, you could say we were a bit dressed up—it’s not often men head to West 6th in suits. Hence why my boyfriend got the compliment, “Nice. Way to suit up, man!” Maybe he didn’t happen to notice the seven other young men in suits right next to us.

Regardless, it got me thinking about how fabulous it is when men take the time to dress up. A few decades ago, a man could barely be seen out of the house without a jacket and slacks, but today it is a rarity. And though it is slowly starting, the every-day-suit trend is one that needs to make a stronger comeback.

I am fortunate to have a few friends already on point with the casual suit trend. I love when a man can pair a jacket with jeans or chinos. Some of the coolest street style blogs have been sharing pictures of trendy dudes wearing matching suits for their daily business.

Then, of course, there is the formal suit, three-piece suit and tux. I guess it’s also time we start throwing some formal events, because our guys want a chance to get dressed up just as much as the ladies!

From casual day-wear to classy nights, here are some of my favorite shots of men suiting up.
