Style Icon- Frank Lloyd Wright

Not just one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, but a mighty snappy dresser. Soft collar, soft tweed three piece peak lapel suit, mother of pearl button cufflinks. I’m sure his trademark low porkpie crowned western hat was just off camera. Comfortable and sharp as a tack.
