How do you feel about men in black suits? Black shoes? Narrow (but not too narrow) black ties? Call me strange, but I’ve always had a weakness for that look, ever since Jake and Elwood Blues of “The Blues Brothers” perfected the mode in 1980. Always trust the guy in the suit, as my granny used to say.

Then in 1997, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones came on the cinema scene wearing the same slim suits, polished black shoes, the funeral ties that were somehow cooler than Bulgari. And like the Blues Brothers, they topped off this outfit with black Ray-Ban shades.
