This week's Style File is inspired by the classic film we all know and love, The Graduate. Nothing says style like a young Dustin Hoffman. Seriously, check out this set of iconic photos from LIFE's archives of Hoffman in his early days. We've taken a contemporary twist on Benjamin Braddock, polishing him up a bit and suiting him up in The Purple Milner from our current Short Run Shirting Collection. Of course, it wouldn't be an appropriate title without a little Paul Simon, an Alfa Romeo, and a book on designing plastic assembly parts - for the seasoned Graduate fan.
