The "Rat Pack" featured Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop among others. These were cigar-smoking, suit-wearing, martini-swilling gods of the entertainment industry. Their style is so timeless, that many men are striving to bring back the feel in a world that became way too base, crude, and sloppy.
The rat pack set the example for men in the 50s and 60s. If only today's hipsters were this cool!

Ultimately, the rat pack set a classic style. You can't go wrong with it and obviously the ladies appreciate it, as well. In the years of graphic t-shirts and beards, we females really miss men with confidence and class.
