Style Icons: Male »Ned Kelly

Ned KellyTime is good to outlaws. Kelly is generally considered an Australian folk hero with movies, books, and TV shows honoring his contribution to the resistance to colonization. But there is no getting around the fact that in his time, despite the positive changes that were made to how the police handled the colonies, Kelly was a criminal.

But as all things, with time and interpretations of the past, even criminals can become folk heroes and even I can list Kelly as a fashion icon for A. his particularly impressive beard; B. his handcrafted body armor he wore during his shoot out arrest and C. his ability to capture the imaginations of film makers, writers, and singers to this day.
