0522Kempt-Lifetime-Achievement-Navigators-Paul-Newman

The great Paul Newman was so many things—actor, director, race car enthusiast, savvy businessman, generous humanitarian, devoted husband—that we occasionally forget about some of his other achievements.

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.
