Michael Jackson’s status as a Pop Icon influenced mens fashion and style in general for several generations. The white glove, the red jacket and the moonwalk were all a part of many a teenagers path to adulthood. His unexpected passing is shocking and sad. From my perspective, the death of this young star is only surpassed by the death of Elvis in 1977.

To see more of Michael Jackson’s memorabilia (including fashion) that was going to be up for grabs in April, see the article in Rolling Stone. Booth Moore, fashion writer for the Los Angeles Times, put together a peice on his impact on fashion yesterday that is fairly comprehensive (see Michael Jackson: King of Style).

And we can’t forget the innocent, yet imminently stylish “Little” Michael Jackson.
