Michael Caine's dashing wardrobe on and off-screen made him one of Britain's most admired fashion icons. His impeccable style was thanks in part to the influence of his close friend and tailor, Savile Row guru Douglas Hayward. It's been said that Hayward's influence on Caine even went as far as inspiring the actor's Alfie performance. To emulate Caine's style, adopt sharp, precise tailoring even on the most accessible casual articles. In this photo, Caine's white button-down and casual trousers and are the perfect length. His modish accessories of bold frames, thin tie, and loafers fashionably polish up the look.
