Properly Suited

Steve McQueen shows off the classic appeal of the the debonair three-piece suit during the filming of The Thomas Crown Affair.

Sean Connery as James Bond in his gentleman good looks with Bond girl Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore at the set of Goldfinger in 1964.

The three piece suit has long been the staple of every Jeune Homme de Bonne Famille et de Mauvaise Education, Oil Tycoons, Robber Barons, Sugar Daddies, Wall Street Power Players, Silver Screen Legends like Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and later on the jet-setting playboys Steve McQeen and Sean Connery.

By the early 1990s, the three piece suit had all but vanished with the onslaught of the dreaded introduction of Casual "Eyesore" Friday. After a long hiatus, the three piece suit is making a long overdue comeback. The three piece suit also heralds the come back of the classic pocket watch. You can pick up a vintage one at auction, or, consider the stylish Swissmade 1805 Continental pocket watch, a gem of sophistication in homage to the most classic of all timekeepers. The 1805 Continental is a true Napoleonic­- inspired pocket watch, modernized with an analog alarm and snake­coil chain. This horological beauty establishes an iconic demeanor fit for modern times.
