i wish that i was born a thousand years ago, i wish that i’d sailed the darkened seas
George Harrison -- in addition to being my future husband (yeah I'm still trying to figure out how that's going to work), he's probably my number one idol for men's fashion. Despite being the 'quiet' Beatle, he was probably the Beatle with the loudest sense of fashion. He saw nothing wrong about denim-on-denim, psychedelic print-on-psychedelic print, or wearing a bucket hat with what look like little animals on it. It was like everything he did was incredibly cool and visually awesome. He painted his guitar, his car, and his house all in psychedelic colors and, apart from a few minor upsets (like that perm he got in the late seventies), his style was flawless. I particularly love the clothes that he wore in "Let It Be." For the most part it was simple functional clothes (jeans, button downs, vests) but occasionally George would break out a fantastic outfit or two, such as the all black suit and black fedora or his rooftop concert outfit consisting of a red buttondown, green pants, black Chuck Taylors, and a black shearling coat.
