Unlikely Style Icons – Vol 2

The next instalment of our Unlikely Style Icons series, we have gone even more eclectic, but we hope you love our selections. Tell us what you think, or should be in Vol 3.


Jacob Rees-Mogg

Who better to be an unlikely style icon than the Tory MP from the West Country. Handmade suits, a love of tweed, and a fabulous selection of vintage clothes and accessories, how could he not be a style icon. Famed for cutting his own furrow, being bold enough to be himself when his leader wants him to change, all things we here like. If you want classic cut style Jacob Rees-Mogg is the man. He even has the geek glasses so in lately, except he’s had his for decades.

Diane Keaton

Every film you can think of with Diane Keaton in she has a fantastic look, from Annie hall to the modern-day, each is special. Not just that, Diane explodes the myth that fashion is a young persons game, she is still rocking looks, breaking rules and wearing awesome outfits with awesome hats. She is out there for a lot of people but is able to create outfits that shouldn’t work but by god you want to wear them.


Carlton Banks

Think about this, recent trends, preppy, polo shirts, blazers, dodgy facial hair, and then think where you saw them first, Carlton wasn’t uncool, he was WAY ahead of his time. Of course it’s not just the clothes we’ve come to imitate, it’s that dance, we all love to copy it at every chance.

Bill Murray

Not even explaining this one, I want to be this cool, this awesome, in fact for style advice, who you gonna call, Bill Murray


Brains From Thunder Birds

Big knits, sharp tailoring, and the glasses that we all want, Brains might be wooden, but his style is alive 50 years later. He’s the classic geek, the one that launched a child. He saved the Tracey family while being his own man.
