George Harrison is shown here during The Beatles' visit to India in the late 60s. His outfit has a touch of psychodelic and the romantic styles popular at that time.

Red stripes

Vintage GQ cover from the late 50s...Although it's a summer outfit, I think it can be pulled off during Fall/Winter.

Tom Jones

Tom Jones is one of the UK's most famous singers, reaching his heyday back in the 60s and 70s. Songs like "Thunderball", "Promise Her Anything", "It's Not Unusual", and "She's A Lady", just to mention some, are amongst his greatest hits. Below a photo of him taken in the late 60s shows a mod and classic style. Yet his style is more remembered for his trousers, shirts, chains, and hair.

Turtlenecks have been around for such a long time now...I don't remember exactly the year but I once read they were worn around by whale fishermen back in the 19th century. And since then they've become a staple in a man's wardrobe. IMO turtlenecks reached their peak during the 60s with Mod fashion and were still worn in the 70s by Halston and countless others. It seems as throughout the 80s and 90s turtlenecks were thought of only as winter wear. However during this decade, the 00s, I've seen it make a kind of comeback on the runways.

I personally think turtlenecks can make a fall/winter outfit look elegant yet simple, different from the rest. I recommend have different colors to combine with different pieces. And if worn with a jacket you have the recreation of the 60s mod look.

Saturday Night Fever is defintely a movie that helped make Disco music mainstream. Tony Manero's white suit and black polyester shirt define for some the whole late 70s fashion. In my opinion it's an example but not the only look that represents the late 70s for men's fashion.

American president John F. Kennedy graced the cover of March 1962's GQ due to the worldwide attention his personal style began to receive. Taken in the epitome of the "Camelot Years" this image proves that no matter what your job is, there's no excuse to have some style. JFK will most likely be remembered for his Tortoise Wayfarers and his leisure clothes (sailing around Martha's Vineyard with the family).

Congratulations to Barack Obama who has just made history and without a doubt will bring the much need winds of change! Even though 4 decades have gone by, the 60s spirit of freedom and equalness for all still prevails....

Starsky & Hutch

Starsky and Hutch was one of the most famous TV shows in the 70s...they were just like the "Miami Vice" of the 70s, of course without the Hugo Boss suits, wayfarers, and Miami.

Two crime fighters, two styles....Hutch wearing a long leather jacket with a turtle neck underneath and jeans. Starsky with his famous sweater, a blue shirt, and jeans. Of course who can forget the Torino!
