Huey Lewis, lead singer of the 80s rock group "Huey Lewis & the News" is an example of the above. In 1985 on one of his several musical videos, Lewis took his style from the San Francisco Bay Area to a filled arena, wearing a red suit and a black t-shirt beneath.
The ensemble was quite dynamic since for his tour around San Francisco he wore the complete suit, yet when it was time to perform at a concert he removed the jacket, making it more casual & functional, yet very elegant.
Before ending today's post, I'd like to congratulate "Gorgeous Styles" ( http://gorgeoustyles.blogspot.com/ ) for celebrating last month its 3rd anniversary. For the ocassion they've added a new layout to their amazing blog inspired on the 80s film classic "Wall Street".
