“From now on, you’ll dress only in attire specially sanctioned by MIB Special Services. You’ll conform to the identity we give you, eat where we tell you, live where we tell you. You will have no identifying marks of any kind. You will not stand out in any way. Your entire image is carefully crafted to leave no lasting memory whatsoever with anyone you encounter. You’re a rumor, recognizable only as deja vu and dismissed just as quickly. You don’t exist; you were never even born. Anonymity is your name. Silence your native tongue. You are no longer part of ‘the system’. We’re above the system. Over it. Beyond it. We’re ‘them’. We’re ‘they’. We are the Men in Black.”
Fitted, sleek, under the opulence of black. So elegant and mysterious…did we say très chic? Well, très chic. We don’t quite understand, how were these suits supposed to fall under “unmemorable”?
You can get the Men in Black look in real life, sans all the troubles, like getting your identity taken away or having to fight giant, gooey alien bugs… How are you supposed to pay for all the dry cleaning it would take to get the slime off of those suits, huh?
Make the look work even at the office by making sure the fit is superb, like *custom*, you know? From jacket to pants, perfectly tailor. Your shoes (Brushed Black Calfskin Richelieu Fratelli Rosetti in soft black, says us) are polished right before you wear them, not even yesterday’s polish will work. There’s nothing worst than an impeccable suit with dirty shoes, plus, you are not fighting like in the movie, therefore they must be clean! And last but not least, a crisp white shirt. Snow white, to be precise, it has such an amazing contrast on that jet black suit. That’s how you make it memorable!
Bonus points for great black sunglasses.
Ladies out there, you can go for the look, too! Just like the men, fit is crucial; actually, beyond crucial.
Remember, ladies, If you finally decide to give that cardigan and unflattering skirt a one way trip to another galaxy, go for Agent L’s look, and make sure your suit fits like a glove, literally!
And with all the hype of getting the MIB look, we are sure no one, absolutely no one, wants to see aliens strolling down the street… Unless they are all dolled up in Victoria’s Secret lingerie a là Serleena. We are sure we will all agree in making that exception.
We can also make an exception if they’re as adorable as Frank the Pug…
Go ahead, have fun and catch on to the trend. We hope the new MIB film makes it spread all over the city like a disease, just like it did in the summer of ’97. We won’t mind looking at clones of exquisitely fitted Men In Black suits!
