So, I was thinking about Valentine's Day, Fashion Week, and Black History Month all at the same time, (since they're all this month), when "My Girl" by The Temptations randomly started playing in the background (I had my ipod on shuffle)… and from that, this posting was born. The Temptations have some of the greatest love songs on earth and they sung them with so much style (and soul of course). So here's a mini-tribute to them (inspired by v-day, style, and history).

The style of 1960s is the style many men admire in modern times… slimmer fitting suits, fitted dress shirts, slim ties, and if you were in Hollywood, or let’s say a member of The Rat Pack a sharkskin suit was a regular in your wardrobe.
Sammy’s style was that of the times, with his own Sammy or hollywood touch like maybe an intentional loosened bow-tie and collar.
