Take it from icons like Andy Warhol: sometimes all it takes is the right pair of frames and a leather jacket to turn a soft-spoken kid from Pittsburg into art’s biggest start.

And with the recent news that a trove of Warhol’s digital artwork has just been discovered by the Warhol Institute on old floppy disks—thanks in part to an inquisitive Warhol fan and a group of “retrocomputing” enthusiasts at Carnegie Mellon—we were reminded of just how darn stylish the guy was. (Well, he is a Kempt 100 inductee.) There are striped tees, trenches, slim ties with chore jackets… he might as well have just stepped out of a F/W 2014 lookbook in a few of these shots. In other words: it’s the definition of timeless style.

Take a closer look in five more iconic snaps of Andy Warhol:
