Fred Astaire

The always graceful Fred Astaire.  No other man has influenced American style more profoundly than Fred Astaire.  Replacing the stiff-suited, aristocratic uniform of the day with his looser, more democratic look of tweed sport jackets and easy cut flannels, Astaire became a new model for the Century. Nonchalance, natural charm and effortlessness would now replace the pomp and circumstance of men s style that preceded it.
