What could be more stylish?
I don't plan to go off the deep end on vintage clothing but these are certainly of a period. Men's size 8 1/2 C from Oviatt's. They're on EBay for $325 (or $22 in 1940s dollars).
Sold to LBJ in 1955.
For a slightly more updated ensemble, also from Oviatt's, consider this jacket sold to Sen. Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1955. Bidding starts at $350. What size? The vendor doesn't say. I mean you wouldn't wear it, would you?

Closing price: $900.
