"I'm so mean I make medicine sick"

We've featured style icons like Dorothy DandridgeAndre 3000, and Rita Hayworth on our blog, what an eclectic group of people right? Well, it's about to get even more so!

You may know him as a cultural icon, a three-time heavyweight champion, the greatest, and the man who said, "I'm so mean I make medicine sick," but he is also a man of style.

When  Muhammad Ali wasn't wearing his boxing gloves, he was wearing tailored suits, vest, jackets, and sweaters. He had an unorthodox style in the boxing ring with his fast jabs and quick feet that danced around his opponent but his style outside the boxing ring was simple, clean, crisp, and  tailored. And even though his style in and out of the ring were different, one thing was clear, he always suited up!
