The Many Fashionable Sides of Our 35th President, John F. Kennedy

Today marks 50 years since John F. Kennedy was assassinated driving through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. Putting aside all the conspiracy theories, the political spin, the legacy of the Kennedy family and every hot button topic about the man, there is no doubt our 35th President had style. He represented then, and still represents today, a classic American style that will always stand the test of time. Lets take a look at some of those style choices…

Campaign. With all of his illnesses, JFK was a bit dainty. But what I find most intriguing about this photo is the kid with the gun in his own face in the foreground.

Tension. When you’ve got Jackie at your side and you contrast yourself with LBJ, anyone can look good – even in the midst of the hottest policital landscapes.
