I won’t bother you with the details of the search terms that led me to this daring 1960s or 1970s ‘After Six’ velour tuxedo on etsy. Sure, $88 seems a bit steep, but you’ll never need another tux. You could even be buried in this striking ensemble, virtually guaranteeing that your reanimated zombie corpse will pass for the living. Click on the images below to see the seller’s listing.
Here’s one of our favorite looks from the issue, which would work great from office to holiday party.

Easy to replicate too.
Cobalt sweater paired with cobalt, sharkskin cigarette trousers. We don’t see enough of this color in mixed monochromatic textures, so well done, Harper’s.
Monochromatic and monotextured, long and lean, this almost looks like a tailored, wool knit jumpsuit. But it’s not. Another easy to replicate look, if you have the lines to pull it off. It’s lovely to be warm and hot at the same time.
