If you felt like doubting, we’ve uncovered documentary proof: James Agee was one slick bastard.

The pomade and peak lapels probably went over better in the 40s, but otherwise there’s a lot to learn from this particular man of letters. Knit ties over checked shirts still carry a good deal of literary heft, especially under a light suit with a good fabric.

And a scar or two doesn’t hurt.
