Jason Kibbler

AGE: 46
OCCUPATION: Mr. Robot on Mr. Robot
THE SUIT: Slim three-piece camo-lined suit from a not-so-dystopian future
CONFESSION: "Over the years, if I look back at photos, I think there was a pretty frightening lack of style. I was just grabbing whatever I saw in the closet and putting it on. Now I know that I'm good in single-breasted suits, a really thin lapel, a shorter jacket. Less material is key: I didn't really get that when I was younger. Now I'm just trying to streamline things as much as possible."

The 1975

OCCUPATION: Pop stars
THE SUITS: From left, on Adam Hann (lead guitar): Advil red three-piece with some shine. On Ross MacDonald (bass): dressy midnight blue with killer boots. On Matty Healy (lead vocals): skinny-fit rock-star shit. And on George Daniel (drums): sharply tailored jacket, easy-fit pants.
A LITTLE CONTEXT: The 1975 are a British rock band. They're also a '60s soul band and an '80s synth group. They dabble in R&B. EDM, too. That eclecticism explains why their second album topped the charts its first week. It also explains the band's style. "It's all about juxtapositions, isn't it?" says singer Matty Healy. "Like my hair: I don't really do anything with it, but then I'll contrast that with a sharp bit of tailoring and sneakers. I'm a complete composite!"

Antonio Ciongoli

AGE: 32
OCCUPATION: Creative director of Eidos, the new-school N.Y.C. tailoring line owned by the people behind classic Neapolitan suit brand Isaia
THE SUIT: Raw silk Italian realness...with a pajama shirt

"This belt is my dad's, but everything else I designed. I'm the great-grandson of tailors on both sides. This suit is very midcentury Italian. I think about Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, with Marcello Mastroianni." -Antonio Ciongoli

David Johansen

A.K.A.: Buster Poindexter
YEARS IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS: 43
OCCUPATION: Lounge act (as Buster); New York Doll (as David)
THE SUIT: An unfuckwithable combination of classic style (windowpane plaid) and legendary fashion designer (Dries Van Noten)

"When I began doing Buster Poindexter down at Tramps on 15th Street, the musicians I was playing with, they were all degenerates. If you left them to their own devices, God knows what you were gonna get. Maybe a bathrobe. So I thought we'd go with suits." -David Johansen

Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne

OCCUPATION: Designers, Public School
HOME TURF: New York City (obviously)
THE SUITS: Call it suit sharing among friends. Dao-Yi wears a royal blue jacket and navy pants; Maxwell, the opposite.
MAXWELL SAYS: "Our suits are always really easy. You can be on the move and be comfortable. For instance, it looks like Dao's wearing a suit, but really it's a T-shirt, a blazer, and knit sweatpants."
