It's the middle of the week which we all know as Wednesday. Their are some who consider it to be hump day, while I define it as something totally different. Today is the day that I take a moment to highlight in my opinion one of the world's most amazing Maverick Male Icon's. Yes...it's Maverick Male Wednesday! I decided to go into the archives, pay homage, and honor by placing Bing Crosby in the spotlight. I'm sure their are a few that are familiar with who he is, while their are others who are not. So, for those who are not familiar, let me introduce you to this stylish maverick man. By the time you finish reading this, you will never forget who he is and he will be deeply ingrained in your memory.
Bing Crosby was known as an American singer and actor with an amazing bass-baritone voice. Crosby was one of the best-selling recording artists during his time of the 20th century. This man was considered a phenomenal leader of his time in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses. He is what you would define as a multimedia star. I think all of that is amazing and great! However, I want to recognize Crosby for his impeccable and flawless sense of style. It's evident that he was a maverick man and he knew exactly how to dress to impress. Gentlemen take a look at these images. I think we can all learn, adapt, and mock a few of his looks even to this day. Remember, trends come and go. But, keeping it classic is a style that always remains. Today I applaud Bing Crosby and crown him with the award for being the man of the hour...I Say Yes!
There is nothing like the perfect accessory to complete your look. Mr. Crosby knew how to execute wearing a hat exceptionally well.
What's a suit without a peak lapel and the perfect tie. Crosby took great pride in wearing a suit well. Gentlemen look and learn.
Gentlemen a hounds tooth blazer is something that all of us could use in our wardrobe. If Bing Crosby could wear it back then we can wear it now. It's the perfect sports blazer that goes well with jeans or dress slacks.
