Oh, HELLO, James Franco. Sorry to bother you as you’re artfully lounging on that smoky film set, but we have a little something to talk about—this Gucci “Made To Measure” campaign you’re all gussied up in. When we think “James Franco style,” we immediately conjure up his art school chic look in our mind (which usually involves colorful skinny ties or slightly creepy mustaches or even wooly cardigans worn over suits). But then—BAM. These Gucci photos show up in our inbox and we’re all, “Wait. Wut.” James is looking HOT, dudes. And, like, not in a, “Let’s hang out at the local coffee shop and talk about our favorite bands” kind of way, but an older, more mature, “Let’s drink and schmooze at my young entrepreneurs dinner party tonight” kind of way. JAMES IS ALL GROWN UP, Y’ALL. *single tear*

But, I mean, we’re not TOO sad. We still think he’s an adorably dressed man who should date us immediately. Like, look at the top photo. He makes a checkered suit look SO RAD. And that pinstripe suit paired with a tie clip and briefcase? HAIIII. We could listen to you talk boring web analytics/stocks/sports scores ALL DAY if you were wearing that outfit. Mmmm. (But, um, what’s all that rope for? *slowly inches away*)

JAMES, WATCH OUT. A BIRD GOT CAUGHT IN THE FAN. Oh, no, that’s just feathers delicately floating by to add a touch of softness to the KILLER badassery you’re giving off in that double breasted suit.

Ooooh. The pinstripe suit again but in COLOR. We like it even more now. Well, you know, if that dang rope were out of the picture. It’s giving off weird vibes. Maybe he has it nearby in case he wants to whip one of the photographers into shape. You know, because he’s a SERIOUS fashion photographer and all.
