We mentioned this a couple weeks ago when it happened, but we finally had some time to really dig deep into the newly unveiled New Yorker Archive recently and found a handful of stylish reads.

From Capote profiling Brando in 1957 to a 2010 visit to the Prince of Solomeo, otherwise known as Brunello Cucinelli, here are the five handsomest long-reads from the New Yorker Archive…

“The Duke in His Domain”: Truman Capote profiles Marlon Brando in 1957.

“Living Well Is the Best Revenge”: A 1962 profile on F. Scott Fitzgerald and the expat American couple who inspired his novel Tender Is the Night.

“Fifteen Years of the Salto Mortale”: It’s 1978 in the life of Johnny Carson during his heyday.

“Ornery”: Just a great title choice, accompanied by an equally great profile of Merle Haggard in 1990.

“The Prince of Solomeo”: A visit to the cashmere utopia of Brunello Cucinelli in 2010.
