Sure, those Liverpudlian lads knew how to knock out a tune or two, jingle-jangle guitars, "oooh!"s and all. But the modern male didn’t just dream of picking up a Rickenbacker and sounding like a Beatle; he wanted – perhaps even more – to look like one too. He wore out his Beatle boots as he did his coveted copy of Help!, strutted about in paisley caftans and filched his granny’s glasses, even if they made his world more topsy-turvy than it already was.
While Sergeant Pepper and his band occasionally fell out of style, the Fab Four have yet to lose an iota of their appeal, both musically and sartorially. Ahead of Paul McCartney’s Egypt Station 2019 world tour, as well as the release of the remastered and expanded White Album on 19 November (ever so slightly ahead of its 50th anniversary), we bring you 12 images of John, Paul, George and Ringo at their nattiest to show you what we mean.
