There have been a few old Hollywood stars to leave an imprint as iconic as James Byron Dean has. James Dean was 24 years old when a car crashed caused his untimely death during the peak of his career. However, James Dean left behind a slew of classic films and signature timeless style.
Every gentleman can still learn a lot from him so here a few ways you can get the James Dean look.
THE STRIPED SWEATER
The nautical sweater is a timeless nautical element that can elevate any look, all year round! We especially love this one by Bellerose from Mr Porter
THE LEATHER BIKER JACKET
If you want to go for an iconic leather jacket, look no further than Schott NYC. The Perfecto Jacket by Schott NYC was made famous by Marlon Brando in 1953’s ‘The Wild One’ and continues to be one of the most relevant styles today.
THE WELL FITTED T-SHIRT
A well fitted tee is essential for every gent! We recommend checking out Joe Fresh for good quality essential tee’s that have a perfect standard fit. But for big and tall gentleman, our go-to brand is One Bone, which is based out of Canada!
Another nautical pick that is true to James Dean classic style is the ever-so-classic peacoat. We’re currently coveting this affordable option by Calvin Klein which is available online and in-store at The Hudson’s Bay.
BOLD ACETATE FRAMES
A bold acetate frame can add a little flare to any look, whether it’s for a casual look or a tux look as seen on James Dean above. Our go-to brand is Ollie Quinn, which offers amazing prescription frames for super affordable prices. Check out these acetate frames by Ollie Quinn for a James Dean inspired look.
A HEAVY RIBBED V-NECK SWEATER
We love a heavy ribbing on our sweaters. In-fact, our favourite sweater style is the cricket sweater! For affordable options we recommend Abercrombie & Fitch. We are currently obsessed with this Polo Ralph Lauren cricket sweater from Mr. Porter.
The perfect polo can be found at Joe Fresh for a super affordable price. However, it is worth noting that there is no polo more iconic than one from Polo Ralph Lauren, which can be found online and in-store at The Hudson’s Bay.
PERFECTLY STYLED HAIR
Lastly and certainly one of James Dean’s most iconic style elements is his beautifully styled hair. We love American Crew’s cream pomade for styling when we are replicating the James Dean look!
