Who’s looking good?

“Who is this sharp dresser?” I hear you say. Surely not the same guy who graced the stage with ‘off the cuff!’ favourite Miss Kylie Minogue in what looked like a white C&A shell-suit a few years back? (see below.) Yep. Would you believe it? Justin Timberlake has discovered the joys of a bespoke tailored suit. And now he’s looking rather fine.

How many times do I have to say it? The bespoke tailored suit is a panacea for all kinds of appearance-related issues. First we had Pete Doherty transforming himself before the courts into a well-dressed Artful Dodger, albeit on amphetamines; now we have Justin the affectionately named ‘trousersnake’ giving Sean Connery a run for his money.

Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that he's got an album out now, which by all reports is said to be rather good. But more importantly for us, he seems to have come of age, stylistically at least. So let me salute the birth of a style icon. An unlikely style icon, perhaps. But then the best always are.
