Dev Anand in Johnny Mera Naam (1970)

The best way I'd describe Dev Anand's style in this film as 'Preppy Americana Cool'

Love the candy striped shirt teamed with paisley print scary, very cool

Brown leather jacket, candy stripe shirt and a silk scarf, very cool Dev

I love his attitude here with the unbuttoned shirt and the white t shirt underneath completed with a silk chocolate scarf

There's something that just screams Americana Cool about his baseball jacket with the red yellow red cuffs worn on top a stripy shirt, looks like Dev definitely loves his stripy shirts.

Overall Dev Anand has a Preppily cool dress sense that looks just as stylish 40 years on.

Below is a cool song from Johnny Mera Naam where we get to see awesome Dev in his Preppy Gear wooing Hema Malini, this song was also featured at the end of the 2006 Simpson's episode 'Kiss Kiss, Bang Bangalore'
