Inspired Style (Earth Day Edition): Paul McCartney

SONY DSC

When you’ve been a rock star for more than half a decade, you become an arbiter of style. Paul McCartney has been dressing sharply since the Beatles first debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show wearing matching collarless gray suits, ties, and stacked short boots that later became known as Beatle boots.

These days, the influential singer makes ample use of Savile Row tailors, often sporting a tailored jacket, trousers, a tailored black or white shirt, and no tie. Put succinctly, it’s rock star dashing – whether he’s wearing oxfords or trainers.

McCartney is today’s Inspired Style man because when he’s not performing onstage or collaborating with the likes of Kanye West and Rihanna, he’s devoting himself to charity work for the environment and animals. McCartney and his entire family are vegetarian, and McCartney supports PETA, the Humane Society of the United States, and Save the Arctic. He’s performed at several charity concerts and champions Meatless Mondays (interested folks can visit his Meatless Mondays website here).

Crowned with a shaggy mop of side-swept hair, Mr. McCartney is proof positive that you can look swank while doing good.
