During the 1950s and 1960s Rock Hudson was the quintessential Hollywood ideal of masculinity. His trendy American wear as a style icon and minimalistic look brought a new wave in fashion arena and created a look that is still one of the most loved ones. Whether it comes to casual wear, semi-formal or formal wear, Rock Hudson had a perfect and clean look for all occasions. The actor preferred solid colors, classic prints and similar stuff that added glamour to a male’s personality by keeping up the masculinity. There´s no doubt that Hudson fits perfectly well one of our classic carry-over styles: THE JERRY is a pinstripe boxer you can find in light blue or navy stripes. A pattern that will be always cool and elegant.
