    You deserve a tall glass of beer :cheers:. It is always best to be in the middle, but people usually settle for one of the two extremes either side of it. For every Hermes Man, there is an Anti Hermes Man that will pick fault with your Gucci blazer just because it is Gucci.

    I have not really got the impression there is such a hatred here for brands, most people know Kiton or Brioni are in actual fact a brand as well. Every bit a brand like Gucci, Prada etc... Only difference is that Kiton are not plastered all over hollywood or magazines.

    My eyes are fine. I'm not saying it looks horrendous or anything, there's much worse things that wearing jacket/trousers that are too close in shade, but it just doesn't look very good.

    I agree it's not awful but it's not great either, at least I wouldn't have thought that would be good enough for a magazine cover shot.

    It was probably Brittney's idea for that (based on that dress). I think any guy would have put on that suit to have been with Brit at that time.

    I think it would have looked better if the colors of the jacket and pants were switched.

    To be fair the way I've seen Timberlake dresses now on TV is so much better than he use to dress 10 years ago. I quite like how he dresses now days. And if you look beyond the Hollywood 'style icon' hate that's going through SF, you see a lot of what Timberlake is in is SF approved.

    I would have worn denim condoms to be with Britney back then.

    the issue i have with the jacket is the same one I have with all D&G jackets, it's long and lean but lacks any sort of skirt or shape at the hips. It's like instead of curving or cutting in to create waist suppression and then going out again, it just drops off straight from the inward cut. Looks too heavy in the shoulder and chest but unbalanced by the bottom.


    or am I just whistling dixie here...?

    I like the color, but if the jacket was a charcoal donegal or herringbone with patch pockets, it would look less like an orphaned suit and more :slayer:

    When I saw that cover, I hesitated to even critique the fit of the jacket ( shoulders, sleeves, etc) even though my initial impression of the jacket was positive, ( except the too long sleeves) Since they photoshop the hell out of every cover shot, who's to know if that jacket really had that shoulder contour or taper to the arms etc.
