Who said scientists weren’t stylish? These images definitely prove otherwise. Look at all of those french cuffs, bowties, skinny ties, and the white oxford!

Stephen Hawking – 1965

March 12, 2009

It doesn’t get much better than this.

Sartorial all-star and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking with his first wife Jane - 1965

I’ve always been intrigued by physicists and mathematicians, not only because of their revolutionary breakthroughs in their field, but because of their nonchalant way of dressing. Has anyone really considered scientists stylish? Most people don’t; but I definitely do. Check out the pictures below. Anyone that can write an equation that spans the entire length of a chalkboard definitely gets a thumbs up in my book; and the best part is that some of these guys invented those equations!

Robert Oppenheimer - Physicist who headed the Manhattan Project; Check out his links and french cuffs, they're probably smudged with ink from writing all of those equations making them even cooler!
