What is a leisure suit?

A leisure suit is a fashion and fad of the 1970s, consisting of a shirt-like jacket and matching trousers, usually made of stretchable double knit polyester. It is often considered emblematic of the era’s taste in men’s clothing. The leisure suit jacket design is thought to have been loosely based on that of the safari jacket. – Wikipedia

Ok, that was then. This is now.

Having avoided a typical office job my entire life, I actually enjoy wearing a suit. I enjoy the play on the feminine/masculine. However, a leisure suit is not your typical structured office suit but a chic and casual alternative to an everyday outfit like shirt and jeans.
