    I can't think of anyone living, I kind of like JayZ and though he's a bit of a clown, Mr. Bentley. Of all time I like Ralph Ellison.

    Is this pic from that stallion farm where that guy recently died?

    His musculature is sticking out of his left shoulder.


    And his collar suit collar doesn't look to hot either look at that gap. Damn him to hell[​IMG]

    In the world of current celebrities, I am often impressed by Tikki Barber's style. He really gets it - and it's not that easy to dress such a muscular body without looking silly IMO...

    I wonder who makes his suits

    PS: his taste in watches is also great - he's a real Panerai collector and often appears on TV with a Reverso whn wearing a suit
    PPS: his taste in dress shoes seem pretty poor though

    Yeah, that's a good pick. Tiki always looks great.

    I didn't know James Bond wore sandals.

    I think he does in at least 2 films, Octopussy, and one in which Sean Connery attends a spa retreat as part of his investigation. Not sure of the name of the latter. This is also excluding the numerous poolside sequences in various other movies.

    Tiki is a Zegna man due to his wife's affiliation with them (I think she does PR or something and introduced him to some bigwig at Zegna and now that is almost all he wears, at least that's the story)

    Thunderball? Or maybe Never Say Never Again?

    For me it is more picking up something here and there from different people or different styles.

    Man, I loath Tiki Barber, both on and off the field.

    Thanks. I got such a laugh out of it. Ofc, he meant the Duke of Windsor.

    If I am limited to living people, then it's probably Roger Moore.

    this is my idea as well, a bit like jeet kune do! use what is useful and forget which is not!
