Very superficial pet peeve: “Mad-Men-style suit”

Mad Men

Mad-Men-Suits-Mens-Clothes

Huge pet peeve of mine that has come up a lot recently: It bugs me when I hear someone praising a guy for being classy and wearing “a Mad-Men-style suit” because what they actually mean without realizing it is that he’s wearing “an adult-male-suit in the style that was prevalent during the one hundred or so years before American men dressed like children.”
