GQ Magazine's 20 Black Style Pioneers

Black history shouldn't be forgotten just because it's March. GQ Magazine has compiled a great list of the 20 most fashionable figures in Black history. From Sammy Davis Jr. to Huey P. Newton-- these guys were always on top of their fashion game. Sure they were trendy sometimes, but for the most part their style was timeless. A lot of what the wore back in their day translates to modern fashion. Check out Sammy Davis Jr. above. He is wearing a tailored suit jacket, skinny tie, tapered trousers, and Cavern boots. Simplicity provides a fine line between elegance and plainness, gentlemen.
