    Cool as f*ck. Great pics. What I like about him, besides his taste and nonchalance, is the way he seems to enjoy himself and life. His facial expressions and body language convey that. Here's one of my favourites of Steve McQueen, along with Miles Davis (another sharp dresser and all-around cool cat), back stage at the Monterey jazz festival: [​IMG]

    a true man's man. Sadly, very few of those kinds of iconic male figures any more.

    I'd argue there were few then. By their very nature, iconic should mean rare.

    Cool popover. I think everybody has an angle on their face that when photographed they look cool. Somehow, for Mcqueen every angle was that angle, without him ever looking pretty or like a model. Every picture of Mcqueen looks like a great picture of an average guy, the best picture that guy ever took.

    I know it is sacrilege, but I'm not all that impressed. The suit he's wearing in front of the Rolls Royce is just plain bad.

    True, tailored clothing wasn't his strong point.
