For Frank Sinatra fans, today—which marks 16 years since the Chairman of the Board died—will undoubtedly be filled with nostalgia about the singer's charisma and effortless style.

The way Sinatra dressed himself is a big part of what made him into a lasting icon. He understood the power of style (he was once quoted as advising men to cock their hats, because "angles are attitudes."), and the photo above proves that. Those strong, wide lapels are almost Tom Fordian, and make his trim waist look even trimmer.

While we won't tell you the best way to remember the man, we will leave you with this video of Ol' Blue Eyes performing one of our favorite songs, "Fly Me to the Moon," live in 1964. In a tux.
