Many had thought it as good as dead, destined for a place in fashion oblivion next to plus fours. But last week a most unexpected thing happened on Paris men's catwalks: The stuffy old suit came back.In show after show, suits and tailored jackets shook off the toxic baggage of corporate uniformity.Long-eclipsed on the men's catwalks by supposedly more practical street and sportswear, the suit was thought to be slowly going the way of the doublet and pantaloon.That is what a brace of top designers from Kim Jones at Dior Homme to Dries Van Noten, Junya Watanabe and Sean Suen have been trying to do with the suit and jacket in Paris.Slimane has always been a true believer in tailoring, as has Kris Van Assche, who showed his first collection for luxury men's outfitters Berluti Friday after more than a decade at Dior.Like Van Assche, Japanese veteran Watanabe used older models for his joyous "Silver Swagger" show earlier the same day.He took his inspiration from how middle-aged hipsters can make a suit sing by mixing tightly cut blazers and tweed jackets with turned-up jeans.
