The Shirtless Suit/Chain Combo Is The Boldest Formal Move We’re Loving Right Now

As worn by: Harry Styles, Alton Mason & Lucky Blue Smith.

A warning before we get too deep into this subject - this one's gonna take cojones to pull off. But we have faith in you. 

We’ve entered the period where the Female power suit, generally paired with little more than a pair of killer heels and some jewelry, is pretty much the norm. But in a way, those trailblazing women have helped forge a new path towards a bold new frontier for men who want to change what it means to don a jacket and pants.

Going one step further and eschewing a shirt altogether is perhaps the riskiest move any man can take in formalwear, but the suit and chain manouver is one that’s do-able in 2020, and one that you too can pull off if you take enough high-fashion inspiration into it.

The shift in what we’ve seen pass as up-to-date tailoring has been as dramatic in the last few years as any other time that we can remember. Modern day style heavyweights like Lil Nas X, Donald Glover and Harry Styles have all stepped out in designs that defy gender, period and conventional suiting rules, and the diversity in what you see at your average spring carnival or cocktail party is now greater than ever before.
