Actress Zoe Saldana recently did a photo shoot for Vanityfair.com and it is a throwback to the heyday of Renaissance Harlem. Though Zoe is a beautiful woman the real focus goes to the impeccably dressed male models surrounding her. The Harlem Renaissance is the only period in history where I wished I have in. Every man took pride in his appearance from his dress to his grooming; there were no articles of clothing hanging off his body or unkept hair (including facial). Almost every man own a hat, a bow tie, a shoe shine kit, a pocket watch and a wool overcoat. The luxurious choice of fabric (wools, tweeds and silks) and hue (smokey grays, jet blacks and bold pinstripes) made every man feel and look like a true GENTLEMAN. I am a GENTLEMAN and I approve this photo shoot!
