While the idea of this post would probably repel him, I thought it was about time I showed a little love to the fly guys out there who turn it out just as well, if not better than, the ladies. I think Jarvis Cocker is one of those guys. Of course being a rock star doesn’t hurt. You know, geeky cool is… well, cool. And with Cocker, it’s more about an overall “look” vs. the specific pieces (I guess). But whatever. If I were a guy, I’d be stealin’ his style, for sure. Here, he illustrates the versatility of his wardrobe choices throughout the course of one mere photoshoot—you’ve got to respect that. I like this look with the navy blazer and with the gray blazer, equally. I also like the subtle mixing of textures by choosing a knit tie. What I love is throwing in the brown shoes—all rich and shiny looking. And a little heel never hurts anyone either.

    This is all great, but… all these clothes you suggested cost way too much. It would be possible to get almost the same for 1/5 of the money. In fact most clothes Jarvis buys are second hand…

    Oh and by the way, who pays $470 for a blazer?
