Peter Sellers !Well obviously.
I don’t worship them as style icons. The jig was just about up by the time they became popular anyway and it wasn’t long at all before they moved into psychedelic shirts and cravats, with the nadir being Marriott’s paisley bell bottom jump suit.
When you see pictures of Plonk wallowing in the mud on his farm with his wellies and dungarees it becomes obvious the dandy period was just a brief passing phase for them as it was for most of the British ‘Mod’ bands of the sixties.
Which makes me wonder - who can you think of who was cool AF in the sixties and sustained it for the following decades?
Connery went all bald and beardy and wife-slapping
Cary Grant? (Died in 1986 IIRC)
Not bloody McQueen, who was also an arsehole in real life which is not ‘cool’ at all!
