To help sell his present album, Justin Timberlake reached back -- way back -- in time.

The multiplatinum singer-turned-actor-turned-singer again spent part of the second night of his weeklong residency on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in some 1920s-style duds, teaming with the host to perform a ragtime rendition of his hit "SexyBack."

The getup certainly gives new meaning to "Suit and Tie."

Timberlake's latest album, The 20/20 Experience, is now streaming on iTunes. It has received a largely positive critical response amid a blowout promotional extravaganza. Along with the Fallon residency, he hosted Saturday Night Live, performed at the Grammys, launched a coy feud with Kanye West and is slated to appear in the classically titled "Target Presents the IHeartRadio Album Release Party With Justin Timberlake" on The CW.
