Similar to Steve McQueen, Paul Newman was another one of Hollywood's leading men in the '70s who embodied a classic American aesthetic before the notion even really existed. Printed shirts, turtlenecks under blazers, and a pre-NASCAR racing look were all ways in which the actor furthered the idea of being well-dressed without ever being stuffy or too formal - the very notion of American sportswear in relation to a more European tight-assness. McQueen was Newman's good friend, but they were also professional rivals in Tinseltown, and it seems like they're also chief competitors in Tumblr presence on the feeds of menswear nerds.
