Jay-Z showed us two different sides of his New York style this week while promoting his new book Decoded (the tome, which reveals the background stories to some of the rapper’s most memorable lyrics, came out Tuesday). For the book party on Monday, held at the New York Public Library, Jay-Z wore a clean Gucci suit, sans tie. The next night, he arrived at the Late Show With David Letterman looking cool and casual in Adidas kicks, slouchy black pants, a blue flannel, an oversize scarf, a black motorcycle-style jacket and nerdy specs. Since we’re suckers for quirky, black-rimmed glasses on guys we prefer Jay-Z’s laid-back look. But what do you think?
