Broski Bits: Bromancin'

In this new installment of Broski Bits, Bromancin', we'll take a look at some dudes with dapper style that all bros should emulate.

It really is a travesty that Michael Caine never played James Bond. He was (is) cool, reserved, trim: everything that James Bond should be. But, hey, he was the original Alfie. No one can live up to that, certainly not Jude Law of all people. 

 Caine personified that 60's blasé charm. He would never say he wanted to shag a girl, because he already knew that it was a sure thing he would be going home with her at the end of the night. Pompous? Definitely, but it's also enviable. 

With his thick-rimmed glasses, double-breasted suits and monochromatic color scheme, Caine never ventured too far into androgyny, especially for a time period like the Swingin' 60's. Everything this dude donned is utterly sensible, which is a real testament to the dude's savoir faire. So here's to Michael Caine, because at the end of the day he may not have played Bond, but nobody really talks about Sean Connery as a style legend.
