It may seem like guys have been wearing jeans, khakis and button-downs since the Stone Age, but men's fashion has changed considerably in the past 100 years. Polyester has gone the way of the dodo, top hats are a rarity and T-shirts are now an accepted form of public attire.

Slip on your knickerbockers, button up your Nehru jacket, or just throw on your favorite T-shirt and read on to learn about the history of men's fashion over the last 10 decades.
