Style Icon: Dean Martin

For us, a style icon is someone who goes beyond what it means to dress well and represents sophistication, calm, class and cool. This doesn’t stop at what you wear but is about the energy and persona of the icon. Dean Martin is also known as the King of Cool and for good reason. He was a good looking, well-dressed, successful man who spent more time on the golf course than on the set of any of his projects!
He got his big break with Martin and Lewis when he teamed up with Jerry Lewis to create a musical comedy show. Martin was a great entertainer and went on to produce and act in movies, record songs and have his own hit TV show, The Dean Martin Show. He is probably most well-known for his friends, the other members of the infamous Rat Pack which included Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford.
They were the coolest kids on the block, known as much for their fashion and style as for their talent and humour. Dean Martin was a style icon for more than just his fashion and we take a walk down memory lane to recall some of his most stylish moments.
Dean Martin lived in a time where every night was an occasion. Men and women were always dressed to the nines yet he somehow managed to retain his own signature style. He was always clean shaven with neat hair and loved wearing a red handkerchief. His suits were always cut close to his body and complimented by a cigarette in one hand and drink in another. Interestingly, Dean Martin enjoyed being viewed as a heavy drinker and would make people laugh with his drunken antics though it seems he would only pretend to be very drunk. His friend and long-time producer Greg Garrison once said that he would always be holding a glass of apple juice, not alcohol!
As part of the Rat Pack, Dean Martin and his gang were strong proponents of equality for African Americans and would never perform anywhere their friend, Sammy Davis Jr. wasn’t allowed to perform. He was a loyal and generous friend who never forgot a hand that helped him.

What made Martin so memorable was his way of doing things. He came from nothing, spoke only Italian until the age of five, dropped out of high school and worked odd jobs including being a boxer, a bootlegger and blackjack dealer. Despite all his hardships, Dean Martin emerged as one of the 20th centuries most loved and remembered entertainers who gave people music, comedy and style.

Great Great bloggin’ ‘bout our main main man, Dino! Devika really knows style! She describes Dean perfectly & actually got me thinkin’ how there just ain’t fellas like him ‘round anymore. I can’t think of even one Hollywood “icon”nowadays that’s in the same class as Dino. O well, pallie. Those were the days. Luckily Dean lives on through us forever!

What a great find and read DMP! There is no question that Dean and the whole rat pack were style icons for the world. As Danny G., said I can't think of anyone, let alone a group of people that could touch Dean and company back in the day. Everything is different today of course and those days are gone forever but at least we have media to show us what it was all about.

A wonderful read as always DMP.

Have a good week.
