Lessons from Some of
The Greats

You see the guys on this page? As different as the individual men are, they've all been celebrated for their personal style at one time or another and they're all included in Simone Werle's new book dubbed "Fashionisto: A Century of Style Icons." The glossy tome rounds up fifty of the top trendsetters from the last hundred years—from Fred Astaire and Truman Capote, to George Clooney and Johnny Depp. And while you may not want to emulate Run DMC's track jackets or Tom Ford's outsize lapels, you can certainly gain some inspiration from the swagger of such characters.
