100yearsofmensfashionLooks from 1945, 1995, and 1955.YouTube/Glam Turns out, men's fashion isn't all that cyclical.

Mode Studios, the YouTube content arm of web curator Mode.com, has created the perfect menswear retrospective in its "100 Years of Men's Fashion in 3 Minutes" video.

From leather jackets to double-breasted suits, all of the 20th Century's best looks are here, as are the not-so-flattering 21st Century ones (read: ill-fitting jeans and puka shell necklaces).

Keep scrolling to see how much men's fashion has really changed in the last century.
