Old School Cool

My dad sent me this article last week. With as much time as our society spends trying to be "cool," it's amazing how many people still totally miss the boat. 
Why? Too many people forget about being classy

Classy:
very/highly stylish and elegant
a deeper, more meaningful word for 'cool'

I am sure it wouldn't shock any of you, that I value "class" over "cool" any day. I've found when the former is established, the latter tends to follow. It's a different kind of cool, but the kind worth having.
Below are dozens of pictures showing old school cool, at its best. 
(I put an asterisk* next to my favorites!)
