What our “new normal” looks like may still be in question, but in Detroit, the city’s Avenue of Fashion recently hosted a heartwarming sight. Dozens of men dusted off their Stacy Adams and favorite—and in many cases, flashiest—suits to compete in the Times Square competition for best dressed.

There were pinstripes, plaids, French cuffs, bowties, vests, wingtips, Steve Harvey six-button specials and a lot of headwear—and at least one silver fox standout whose Versace-inspired fit coordinated from brim to sole (because you’ve got to coordinate!). In the immortal words of YouTuber Darell J. Hunt: “You can’t outdo Black people…c’mon, Papa!”
Ahh, the good old days, when every man tipped his wide-brimmed, feathered and questionably hued fedora in greeting when passing.
The contest was rigged if this gentleman didn’t win! pic.twitter.com/9DfkEKPIFy
