A year after the FBI closed the 45-year-old case of the gentlemanly skyjacker known as D.B. Cooper, scientists may have caught a break in the case. Particles found on the tie he left behind before jumping out of the plane he’d hijacked suggest he might have been a Boeing engineer or manager working on a specific government-funded aerospace project.

And while the revelation that the tie was a clip-on is disheartening from a men’s icon perspective, it in no way diminishes the awe at the act itself. Personally, I hope this is a dead end. In that spirit, let’s look back at our 2015 icon profile of Cooper.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
