Justin Timberlake in Tom Ford at the 2013 SAG Awards.
You KNOW we’re beyond obsessed with the return of Justin Timberlake, and feel like “Suit & Tie” is a song made just for us, so you shouldn’t be surprised that we were literally swooning when we saw JT step onto the 2013 SAG Awards red carpet this evening. We figured he would go classic for his first-post-lyric-video-suit-wearing occasion, maybe in a black Tom Ford? Oh no, that’s too easy for the suit and tie master…JT stuck to Tom Ford but fully committed to being the flyest dude in the red carpet game by opting for a brown and fawn plaid suit, muted brown plaid shirt and navy wool tie. We know what you’re thinking: that’s a LOT of plaid, and yeah, plaid on plaid on plaid is a major fashion statement, but you know what we’re thinking? It’s a statement in the best way. Need we even mention his pocket square? That Gatsby hair? Need we? Ok yeah, more on all that after the jump!
Justin paired his plaids with a deep side part, his hair impeccably combed like our favorite roaring 20’s host, and looked every part the gentleman. While this look could have gone a little too Sherlock Holmes, the hair and the fact that Justin left his bottom button undone lends it a rakish quality with not a single hint of his fedora-ridden past. What really pulled the look together? A jaunty pocket square and subtle gold tie clip. New Justin! Yes! Is this just a preview of the suit and tie game Justin’s going to show us at the Grammys? We think it is!
