Humphrey Bogart was the brooding godfather of style and elegance. Even off-camera, Bogart exuded formality by always accessorizing with proper headwear and neckwear. Here, Bogart and his wife, Lauren Bacall, are a fashionably handsome couple in 1950s Paris. Emulate Bogie's look with a check blazer, bow tie, pocket square, and vintage-inspired fedora.
