Michael Bastian Is “So James Dean”

James Dean remains an icon for so many men primarily because of his legendary devil-may-care attitude. This casualness is something that Bastian conveys very well with his clothes.

As the man himself has said in the past: “America is such a young country and so much of it is about not thinking too much. The American gift is appearing that you didn’t think too much about it. Even if you did, even if you obsessed before you left the house in the morning, it’s more about the personality and the openness and the friendliness than the actual clothes.”

Below, a tightly-edited collection of looks that are very “James Dean”.
