The Kennedy Brothers

US Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy passed away on the night of August 25, 2009 after battling brain cancer for a year. He was 77. His death, weeks after the death of his sister Eunice, marks the end of an era for the Kennedy family and US politics.

Together with his brothers, John "JFK" and Robert "Bobby", he dedicated his life to public service. A life filled with joy and tough moments, yet always focused on helping his country and its citizens.

The 3 Kennedy brothers came to represent the best of American menswear style in the early 60s, during the "Camelot Years". Whether it was to attend a function in D.C. or spend days of leisure at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port. Their style was classic and elegant, and has continued to influence fashion 50 years later. Items such as Tortoise Wayfarers, cardigans, and sleek suits make up the "Kennedy Style".

May Ted Kennedy Rest In Peace. My condolences to all of the Kennedy family on this sad moment not only for them, but for the world.
