The Clash

In 1977 English punk rock band, The Clash, launched their debut album titled with the group's name. On the cover the band's 3 members: Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, & Joe Strummer gave a lesson of style. They showed that a jacket and tie can be worn in the most relaxed and carefree way and still look effortlessly elegant. Worth noticing are the punk elements added to their ensembles who were a sign of what was going to be worn in the 80s and decades ahead.

It may come as surprise that for their debut album The Clash only featured 3 members on the cover, yet one must remember that Terry Chimes had joined and left the band quickly. He was later replaced by Nick Headon.
