Allan Stewart Koningsberg was born in Brooklyn today in 1935. In the early part of his career, he sported the requisite garb of a New York intellectual: buttondown collars, knit ties and natural-shouldered jackets. He’s pictured above in a 1966 Smirnoff ad in white buttondown, navy and red rep tie and navy jacket — practically the same outfit worn by handsome leading man George Peppard in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Dressed by Ralph Lauren for 1977’s “Annie Hall,” Allen settled into a uniform of patterned shirt, crewneck sweater, and slouchy tweed or corduroy jacket that he’s been wearing ever since.
