Happy International Suit Up Day!

Hey! It's International Suit Up Day! I'll be going to work wearing this spiffy black suit...sticking out like a sore thumb in an office full of casuals. But I digress. Let's appreciate the perennial suit in this gallery of comic book characters who make this look damn good!

Let's start with Superman's mild-mannered alter-ego, Clark Kent. Way back in his early days as reporter for the Daily Planet, Clark wore suits to work. Clark here is rocking a double-breasted blue suit, alluding to the dominant color of his superheroic duds. Nice work giving people more reasons to compare you to Superman, Clark. Anyway, it's been a staple of Clark's wardrobe, and it hasn't changed much through the years.

We would be remiss to mention Superman without a look at his arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor! I don't think I've ever seen Lex without a suit and tie. Being the egotistical megalomaniac that he is, an expensive suit and tie is just the thing for Lex to tell the whole world "I'm better than you."

How about billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne? Granted these days we don't get to see much of Bruce, what with him walking his way back through time after being shot by Darkseid's Omega Sanction and all, but when Batman's alter-ego needs to make his rounds spending money and hooking up with celebs, he does so with style!

Director Bones has come a long way from his Black Terror look, trading in the redundant skull-and-crossbones spandex for designer suits and becoming the spiffiest-looking skeleton you've ever seen!

Hey, Marvel's got some best-dressed people too! Zebediah Killgrave, aka the Purple Man, loves some good color combination, often matching his suits with the sick purple color of his skin.

Western comics don't have a stranglehold in the suit business. Manga also has some dapper fellows in its pages, like William T. Spears from the manga Black Butler. It's all business for William here, who matches his cold and aloof nature with an all-black ensemble.

Suits make the man, and these guys have definitely shown us that comic book's got It's not too late to join the party! Take out those suits from your mothball-filled cabinets and indulge yourself by looking like a suave sonovagun just for a day! Happy International Suit Up Day, everyone!
