The Kempt 100 is our definitive list of the 100 best-dressed men of the past 100 years.

You don’t have to be Italian to make this list, but… it sure helps. And that’s why our next batch of legends includes a molto bene leading man, a couple all-American leading men, a Beatle and the fighter they called the greatest.

0220hundredLENNON20. John Lennon
The takeaway: Denim on denim: you can do it.

0220hundredALI19. Muhammad Ali
The takeaway: It takes a big man to wear a small watch.

0220hundredMASTROIANNI18. Marcello Mastroianni
The takeaway: Sprezzatura. (n.) sprez-za-tu-ra. 1) studied nonchalance : perfect conduct or performance of something (as an artistic endeavor) without apparent effort; 2) this guy.

0220hundredCOOPER17. Gary Cooper
The takeaway: The ur-stylish leading man, and a guy whose impeccable db suits would look just as handsome on you in 2014 as they did on him in 1934.

0220hundredREDFORD16. Robert Redford
The takeaway: Our friends at GQ recently suggested ol’ Sundance somehow isn’t a style icon. Consider this picture one of many, many counterarguments.
