George was the quiet one—at least according to the fan magazines.
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.
