    one of the most stylish performances i've ever seen. he's wearing one of richard anderson's sequined dinner jackets and pulls it off very well IMO.

    One of the most stylish talented musicians on the planet without any doubt !!!

    Saw him play at an outdoor concert in 100 degree heat in a white dinner suit in the middle of the afternoon sweating his cajones off but he wouldnt even take the jacket off. Class from a fellow Geordie. UBER cool.

    Much better, or at least age appropriate, hair than Rod.

    For somebody named "Ferry" and fronting Roxy Music, he dresses much less flamboyantly than I expected. I guess I always pictured him to dress more like David Byrne for some reason.

    I've always liked Roxy Music, but had no clue what they looked like as I was born towards the end of their heyday.

    Mr. Ferry has gotten better with age.
    It is interesting to look at his wardrobe from 1976 on and except for a couple of mid 80s bloopers, he has dressed in a classic english style made by the better bespoke shops in England.
    He has often created unique clothing, shoes etc. A couple of years ago he had some loafers made from leather that was found in a 300 year old sunked ship. Recently he was a bidder on articles of clothing from the Bunny Rogers auction in London.
    The style spreads he has done in GQ, Arena, Tatler, etc. have highlighted his impeccable taste.
    He and Charlie Watts, are imo the best dressed rock musians working today.

    He and his son (or sons?) were featured in a clothing spread in GQ or Details a couple of years ago, wearing some nice suits and accessories.

    Is this the first time a Geordie has kept his top on?

    This is one of my all time favorite cut - trimmish jacket and full legged trousers.

    Really? He is a Geordie like Sting...

    He used to be my sartorial hero when I was growing up listening to More than this and Avalon...

    He is the incarnation of the suave arty gentleman.

    His son is a cock...

    Roxy Music (1972)

    For Your Pleasure (1973)

    Stranded (1973)

    Country Life (1974)

    Siren (1975)

    Few, if any, bands have a five album run this strong. Add Avalon (1982), and you have six of the best rock albums ever. Not to mention some fine work from Eno after he left in 1973.

    Bryan Ferry > Rod Stewart

    Roxy Music > every other band
