I don't want to continue repeating all the great films already listed... but here are two great classic comedy's off the top of my head..

The Odd Couple (Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau)
How to Marry a Millionaire (mentioned once, Marilyn is hilarious and captivating plus the wardrobe is great)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (great wardrobe)
Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend (again great clothes as well)
