JFK’s casual sophistication revolution!

 John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), typically referred to by his initials JFK, is a style icon.


JFK is responsible for changing the way men dress across the world. He introduced ‘casual sophistication’ into the white house, and later across the world.

JFK’s signature Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Check out the blue socks! Nice!


JFK’s signature two-button blazers with roughed-up hair. Ps. Why is the bottom button of the blazer closed?


In the next photo we see JFK at his wedding wearing a pocketsquare and a boutonnière. According to the etiquette, either one of the two should be worn at weddings. Not both. But JFK is our man, so we can deal with it! :)


JFK portrait; what style pocketsquare is that? Two-tip?


What do you guys think of JFK’s style?

    I think he should wear an helmet !

    Seriously the real genious of the Kennedy family was the father, a “godfather” like in the Coppola movie ; he used to say : “most important is not what you are, but what people think you are !”

  2. Karl says:

    JFK’s style is great! :-)
    He took the “eastcoast-ivy-league-college-style” to another level! :-)

  3. @ Bertie: okay interesting about the father… we’ll be sure to make a Suitorialist of him….
    and if a helmet was fashionable, JFK could still enrich us with his personality and style…too bad…

    @ Karl: indeed, his Harvard degree fits his style seamlessly….

    Karl and Bertie, are you on Twitter?

  5. Bertie says:

    @Roeljan :
    no twitter, no facebook

  6. Karl says:

    Nope, I’m not using twitter. :-)

  7. Lance Miller says:

    @ Bertie: Why a helmet? You don’t like the coupe?

    @ RJ: Why the Twitter questions bro? BTW: did you guys hear about the getting together of YouTube, facebook and Twitter? They are going to call it: http://www.YouTwitFace.com

  8. Karl says:

    @lance: :-D :-D

  9. Bertie says:

    @Lance : an helmet because someone had shot in his head and kill him, it was a kind of joke nevermind….

  10. Lance Miller says:

    @ Bertie: I got the joke, just testing you :) haha Now going to your comment on the wool tie, something about Marinella ties, jammie!

  11. Eric says:

    JFK’s Blazer is cut with a higher than normal button stance for a two button coat. It is cut in the paddock model according to Will from a suitable wardrobe.

    I’ve seem posts that suggest JFK had his made on Saville Row. I don’t think that’s correct.
    I believe that Paul Winston in New York made Jack’s clothes. The suit he’s wearing in one of the WH officlal photos (shown above) is actually a narrow pin stripe made by Paul Winston.
