The ultimate All-American gentleman who taught us about love, life, and happiness through song, made an everlasting mark on our hearts and on history. Beginning his musical career in the swing era and later becoming one of the most notable entertainers of the 20th century, legendary Frank Sinatra had more to offer than just his voice. With his signature prop-pairing of the fedora and glass of Jack Daniels (four ice cubes and a splash of water to be exact), just what made Sinatra so swagtastic? Here are three signature takeaways from the Sultan of Swoon:
Back when dressing like a gentleman was the norm rather than the exception, Frank took his appearance very seriously…and to the next level; donning tailor-made suits, tuxedos, and pleated trousers over predictable chinos or slacks. We're not saying you should walk your dog in a tux, but it wouldn't hurt to spruce up your worn-out go-to’s every few outings.
Frank was rarely seen without a tie, but when he wore them, he rocked them. Alternating among patterned ties, luxurious silk ties, and bow ties, he set the bar for how a suit and tie should look (take note, Justin Timberlake). Adding the smallest detail to your ensemble can make the biggest difference in how the world views you – be careful though; dressing too sexy can get you into trouble. If Sinatra were here, he could tell you himself how his seductive style put him behind bars (for 16 hours).
The wide-brimmed fedora quickly became a classic trademark of Sinatra's, tilting it as he pleased to suit his mood, exuding a little extra attitude. If, however, the fedora is not your cup of tea (or glass of Jack), you could always adopt another refined libation. The popular gentleman’s cocktail, The Old Fashioned, might just be the perfect combination of heaven and hell.
Whatever your style signature may be, own it. It’s time to rid yourself of drab style and let your dapper flag fly. As Ol’ Blue Eyes would say, "You’ve either got or you haven’t got style, [and] if you’ve got it, you stand out a mile.”
