Speed racing was one of his passions, as well as playing the bongo. Photographed below in 1955 with his Porsche 550 Spyder, James Dean shows why he is not only a cinema but style icon as well.

Doodski is an example of the above. From London to Spain, going through the French Riviera, Italy, & Australia; Doodski has grabbed the attention of many due to its original & outstanding designs.
Founded in 2009, this London based t-shirt brand is best known for its Russian inspired collection, which is shown below.
Using elements such as the Russian Crest, the military stamp, the chains worn by the Tsars, Rasputin, and the last invitation to a party hosted by Tsar Nicholas II; Doodski brings the glory of Imperial Russia to the 21st Century. These are T-shirts to be worn while attending a formal dinner, hanging out with your friends at the club, traveling around the world, or just walking around your city's streets.
However Doodski also offers another collection called "Nothing But Special" which was created by pure coincidence when a T-shirt got lost within a pile of jeans ready to be dyed. The result was a T-shirt with exceptional creases, wash, and metal like enhancements on the fabric. Below an example of these T-shirts: Doodski's Glitter Black, Wrinkle Blue, and Wash Beige. This collection offers 9 different styles with eye catching desgins in earthly tones.
Doodski T-shirts can be worn by themselves or paired up with a sports jacket, dinner jacket, velvet jacket, a hoodie, a Safari jacket, or a cardigan.
You can purchase Doodski on selected sales points around the world, or online at harrods.com & luisaviaroma.com

Bailey has proved that one can look their best while wearing a leather jacket, a Nehru shirt, pullover sweater, and a Romantic shirt (it's not only the clothes but also the attitude that make one look sharp). On this ocassion David Bailey is shown wearing a classic piece & a must-have, a simple black suit. To make it modern he decided to wear a psychedelic print tie, which adds a good contrast to his ensemble.

Huey Lewis, lead singer of the 80s rock group "Huey Lewis & the News" is an example of the above. In 1985 on one of his several musical videos, Lewis took his style from the San Francisco Bay Area to a filled arena, wearing a red suit and a black t-shirt beneath.
The ensemble was quite dynamic since for his tour around San Francisco he wore the complete suit, yet when it was time to perform at a concert he removed the jacket, making it more casual & functional, yet very elegant.

As summer is coming to an end, it is time to start looking on several ensembles for this Fall/Winter. The Hollies provide us with some options below; from a striped Mao neck shirt, a black military jacket with epaulets, to double breasted jackets, and bright ties & shirts. As I have said it several times already, items like these can still be worn during this season due to their elegance and classiness.
The Hollies had several hit songs, however their most remembered one is "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother".
