Doc Savage - A well dressed man...

Everyone tends to think of Doc Savage as the ripped shirt guy on the covers of the Bantam reprints and even the new, Wild Adventures of Doc Savage.

While Doc did sport a ripped shirt or even shirtless in the original pulp covers, it wasn't always the case.

Also, looking at some of the interior art we see Doc and his aides wearing suits a lot. 

I guess that while the ripped shirt look, may look like a man of action, I sort of like the classic, 30s look of the suit and tie.  He might end up with a ripped shirt by the end of the adventure, but I don't think Doc started the ripped clothing trend. 

Of course anything is better than the Marvel comics vest that Doc wore
