    yes. and an eyepatch with a timepiece in it.

    by the way i just saw the cover of oct '04 Architectural Digest. check out rod stewart. bright red velvet jacket, white shirt, tartan plaid tie (i assume it's stewart, not sure), black slacks, and shiny black croc loafers. lounging in his palatial beverly hills abode. quite snazzy.

    Rod Stewart always is quite well dressed. At least at this point in time.

    Not his lycra, etc. period.

    Cary Grant is the first person who comes to mind. I'll probably think of someone else later.

    For me, it's the epitome of French suavity, Charles Boyer: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I'd give anything to be a thousandth as smooth as he was. koji

    ...can't believe this thread was all the way down on page 4. [​IMG] [​IMG] this is writer Gay Talese. apparently he does this sort of thing. here's another: [​IMG] this one is really sharp, but i'll link to it since it's kinda big: linky linky. i'm still trying to decide if those wild pattern combos are brilliant or just nuts. either way, they speak to me.

    His father was a tailor, if I remember correctly. Guess some of it rubbed off. Another vote for Michael Caine: [​IMG] "Shorten the sleeves, will you, love? I'm not a gorilla..." I think Tommy Hilfiger got the whole concept of his new lines from that scene...

    Babar-- when not in regalia.

    Seriously-- all the characters in those books look great in their clothes.

    I remember puzzling over the sentence "...and he bought a shirt, a collar, and a tie" when I was a kid.

    Wasn't until many years later that I realized shirts in those days had detachable collars.

    The workmen in Celesteville also had a very clean, put-together look.

    He seemed to like Nazis and the end of his life was sad but I always vote for the Duke of Windsor. Plus, he created more fashion rules and looks then the normal human being could hope to break. [​IMG] Props always go out to Steve McQueen and Cary Grant as well.
