You shook Sinatra's hand. You should know better.

You shook Sinatra's hand. You should know better.

 

Born December 12, 1915, Frank Sinatra was best known for his music and acting career… and he was also known to have a pretty good sense of style.

Pocket square?  Check.  Cuff links? Check.  Now go grab me a scotch and a cigar for me, pretty lady, I gotta go sing in a few minutes.

Here is an excerpt from his Wiki:

Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, the only child of Italian immigrants Natalie Della (née Garaventa) and Anthony Martin Sinatra. He left high school without graduating, having attended only 47 days before being expelled due to his rowdy conduct. His mother, known as Dolly, was influential in the neighborhood and in local Democratic Party circles, but also ran an illegal abortion business from her home; she was arrested several times and convicted twice for this offense. Frank, himself, was arrested for carrying on with a married woman, an illegal offense at the time. Frank’s father Tony served with the Hoboken Fire Department. During the tough years of the 1930s, when the Great Depression hit North America very hard, Dolly nevertheless provided ready pocket money to her son Frank, the family’s only child, for outings with friends and fancy clothes. Frank then worked for some time as a delivery boy at the Jersey Observer newspaper, and as a riveter at the Tietjan and Lang shipyard. It was in the early 1930s that Sinatra began singing in public.

You know you are a badass when Las Vegas dims its lights after you pass away.  Yes, Mr. Frank Sinatra is an ESM Icon badass and I wish I had the honor of shaking his hand.
