What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a leisure suit? Thick Polyester,1970s lounge lizard fashion or just ungainly style. Sure, that might sum it up nicely except that the leisure suit did not die or go away. What goes around, comes around. It simply evolved like all fashion does. The leisure suit of today is nothing like what was worn thirty five years ago. Leisure suits are called many different things now like walking suits and casual outfits. Leisure suits are now made of beautiful fine poly/rayon fabrics and are sewn on state of the art sewing machines that make the finest stitching and seams that drape beautifully on the wearer and don't look anything like the styles that were available so long ago.
Leisure suits are often worn in the same casual manner that these days like special events and parties where a suit might be a bit too much to wear. Now let's get things straight here. You're not going to find some twenty something guy wearing the modern version of these suits because the younger man just doesn't understand the concept. You will find the man who is around 50 years old who remembers them from his hey day and knows that dressing well is what the sophisticated man does, something the younger man just doesn't understand being raised on Jordan sneakers.
The fashion minded man might wear a modern leisure suit with nice exotic Italian styled dress shoes like ever popular and exotic Mezlan shoes or Belvedere shoes which are both made of only the finest exotic skins and hand made in a color that matches their outfit. You might be wondering what to wear "shirt wise" underneath that leisure suit of yours.
Since these suits are casual in nature I wholeheartedly recommend wearing some sort of mock neck shirt of the dressy variety. You certainly don't need to wear a shirt and tie set. You may want to top off your outfit with a matching color Fedora or Godfather hat. Modern leisure suits come in a whole array of styles, some with french cuffs,different pattern fabrics that may be silky to the touch. You can have fun with modern leisure suits with all the choices available. Shop for Leisure Suits
