The Rat Pack

These guys should be idols for anyone who enjoys music, movies and fashion. They represent the true American Renaissance man of the 60’s. The group consisted of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, although female participants lesser known to the group included women such as Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe.  If you want to see them in action, go rent the older Ocean’s 11 movie, which I happen to prefer over the newer remake.  If you look at the well known Oceans cast of today (Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Garcia, Roberts), you can understand that in trying to replicate the original Rat Pack they had to get the biggest names of our time. Most importantly, this group of guys took style very seriously.  A famous quote coming from a frustrated Frank Sinatra at the Beverly Hills club– “I don’t want anybody in here without coats and ties.”
