But while Lennon and McCartney still soak up most of the praise, we’d like to single out Mr. Harrison as the most stylish of the Beatles. We don’t mean the Hard Day’s Night-era Chesterfields, or the Tommy Nutter suits that came a few years later. Once he shook off the mantle of the Biggest Band Ever, George developed a low-key style that outlasted all of it, all without drawing attention to itself.
So on the heels of Martin Scorsese’s new documentary about the underdog Beatle, we’re taking a closer look at the man’s unique style. Especially the quiet parts.
A new set of ‘64 Beatles snaps just came our way courtesy of the Morrison Hotel, and we couldn’t resist posting one of Mr. Harrison, in the spirit of the underdog. Also, look at this fucking hipster.

There are few things as entertaining down Hollywood way as Robert Downey Jr. in full wackjob mode. His cinematic comeback was that much more compelling because of all the guns, drugs and jail time he slogged through to get there.
