It’s hard to remember when you look at the current occupant of the White House, but there was a time when the President of the United States was the most stylish man in the world. JFK was as much Hollywood as he was Washington, and remains a menswear icon to this day.

Now he’s getting the Tinseltown treatment again with the upcoming biopic Mayday 109 focusing on a younger chapter in Kennedy’s life. And he’ll be played by Hollywood’s new king of cool, Ansel Elgort.

Following a string of summer blockbusters including Baby Driver – said to be 2017’s most stylish film – it’s not just the 23-year-old’s resume that qualifies him for the role. It’s his wardrobe, too. Here are Elgort’s best four looks worthy of the Resolute Desk and beyond.

The Hair

Ever wondered why the slick back has long been a classic? Because men like JFK pioneered it, and men like Elgort have kept it relevant.

The Shades

JFK was a shady fellow. No, we don’t mean his dealings with a certain actress, but his choice in stellar sunglasses – something Ansel Elgort has skilfully imitated (again, not the love life part).

The Off-Duty

When he wasn’t in the Oval Office, Old Jack was in the Hamptons, bossing off-duty style better than many actors of his day. Ansel may not be yacht-ready, but he’s brought the same level of prep into the 21st century.

The Suit

JFK was sharp-tongued, and even sharper-suited. Elgort looks just at home in the same level of sartorial finesse (and on the stump, too).
