Fred Astaire Styleby G. Bruce Boyer
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.
Fred Astaire Style analyzes the dancer�s legendary contribution to 20th century style. From such vivid accessories as the silk pocket square, white buck shoes and woven tie, to his light dance moves and improvisational style, this M�moire evokes this charismatic figure in a truly contemporary way.
