Fashion is more than just clothes. It reflects the attitudes of the current culture, and become symbolic of certain places and times.

The folks at MODE made a video showing one model trying on a century's worth of clothes. It's easy to identify which decade each outfit belongs to, proving how much fashion actually does matter in society.

Here's a sneak peek at the biggest styles in men's fashion over the last 100 years:

1915

What did the rest of the century have in store for men's fashion? Keep reading! 

1925

The pinstripe jacket, polka dot bowtie, and straw hat are totally adorable and give him a clean, friendly look.

1935

The suit, the snapping, and the wingtip shoes totally make you think he's about to call his enemy a "wise guy" at any moment while talking out of the side of his mouth. This is the original tough guy look.

1945

Can we PLEASE all start wearing hats again?

1955

This is the quintessential look of the 1950s. Can we go back to a time when a plain clean white t-shirt was a fashion staple?

1965

We're loving the mustard-colored outfit and thick rimmed glasses. The sweet dance moves also remind us why it was called the swingin' 60s!

1975

This leisure suit and paisley print shirt are completely on point for a night at the disco.

1985

While mullets are easily the biggest hair faux pas that has ever existed in the history of fashion, it seems like a necessity with this white suit and pastel shirt.

1995

If the tucked in striped button down shirt doesn't just scream 1990s, the sunglasses with the colored lenses sure do.

2005

This untucked, casual look is what the turn of the millennium was all about.

2015

The beard, pants, and messenger bag are trademarks of the hipster style that's currently in fashion. All he needs to do is borrow the glasses from the 1965 outfit and he'll be all set.
