According to Sinatra.com, Ol' Blue Eyes had precise rules of style: A half-inch of a man's shirt cuffs should protrude from his jacket sleeve, trousers should fall slightly above the shoe, black is the only appropriate color to wear after dark, vests are better than cummerbunds, and you shouldn't forget to shine your shoes. In this 1962 photo, the man who knows the rules of style better than anyone pairs a fitted knit vest with his signature classic fedora.

1. Get a distinguished cashmere knit vest at Drakes London or Brooks Brothers.
