It’s officially the season of the single-breasted peak lapel suit—which suits us just fine. Once solely confined to the realm of bespoke, this snappy style dating from the 1920s has enjoyed a revival of late, as our two newest MOTHs can attest.

On the heels of Josh Brolin and his dapper D&G number comes Matthew Broderick in an equally alluring black birdseye wool model, worn to the premiere of David Mamet‘s new political play November the other night. Like Brolin, Broderick eschewed a necktie, opting instead for a signature stripe Paul Smith scarf, the stylishness of which we can personally attest to since the very same model if often found adorning our own neck this time of year.

Perhaps his wife Sarah Jessica Parker purchased it for him; she has quite an eye for style, and once asked for the name of our tailor at a *Sex and the City* premiere. Maybe that’s who’s been following us everywhere?
