It baffles me that Rod Serling never makes a best dressed list. ┬áHere’s a look back at some of my favorite looks for Mr. Serling from the Twilight Zone.

From "Dust" - January 6, 1961 - Amazing 2 button sack suit, satin tie, and spread collar white oxford shirt

From "A Most Unusual Camera" - December 16, 1960 - Great 2 button sack suit, satin tie, and white oxford spread collar shirt

Civil Rights Style

August 1, 2009

Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of old images from the civil rights movement of the 1950’s – 1960’s. I’m obsessed with how stylish everyone was. Below are some of my favorites.
