I have recently started to realise that all the people thought of as icons are over 40 and the new breed of so called icons are I think weak at best. I am talking about guys that other guys look to as setting the standard, whether in lifestyle, fashion or just a way of being. Of course there are the classics, James Dean, Steve McQueen, Keith Richards, the Rat Pack, Marlon Brando, David Bowie, Clint Eastwood the list goes on, these are great examples of Iconic men from yesteryear which always had a style and swagger about them that made them the pinnacle of coolness,

My worry is that after Johnny Depp moves on to being less active there is no one set to carry on they work of their predecessors. I am talking about men who have their own style, get drunk, take more drugs then humanly possible, womanise and basically just have a great time while still be great and their chosen profession. Lets go through the possibilities.
