Vintage GQ Covers 1962

Chapters could be written on this one cover. It illuminates patrionism, style, and the prestige of the Office of the POTUS - President of the United States. More important, it is quintessential DC style...and few can argue against the influence that JFK left on the style of men in America; a just comparison to the influence Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis left. JFK exuded the 'American manner' in each and every way, and I can't help but wonder whether the Obama's descent in DC will usher in a new 'fashion frontier in the American manner'. Either way, this March 1962 cover of GQ Magazine is nothing less than inspiring.

This picture very much presents a commonality between Obama and Kennedy.

hail GQ!!
they've just been epic at displaying great men's style.
i certainly think this picture would be better if JFK has relaxed shoulders because he looks pretty stiff and uncomfortable right now, but GQ is still one of my favorite reads

I think thats just his shoulders. He always looked stiff.
