    King Edward VII actually. I think of JFK as the opposite. I remember seeing him in a paddock coat on numerous occasions which (to the untrained eye) looks exactly like a 2 button suit with both buttoned.

    Also, he wears athletic socks with limp looking sack suits. I really think he's overrated.

    Funny that half the people named are dead for at least 30 years.
    Is that more of an indication of the lack of stylish people now days or that the forum is full of old timers.

    It takes time to become a sartorial legend...

    Some of today's well dressed individuals might become legends too in a few decades...

    There is also a stung undercurrent of good old times nostalgia syndrom...
