    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.

    No point making another Timberlake thread so here goes:

    Been looking at yahoo answers a bit and came across some Hollywood gossip link thing about Timberlake:

    Color combo is just bad.

    Why are his sleeves always so long? Jacket is a bit too short - even for fashiony standards.

    Shoes and tie are nice!

    wow, you guys think jt picks his own clothes? he has a paid stylist to buy him stuff, he probably doesnt even know half the brands he wears. the stylists get paid by brands and free clothes to have celebs wear their stuff.

    Sorry, been away from the thread, but I wanted to pick this issue up.

    There is a school of thought that the long, lean cut without a flair at the skirt or heavy waist suppression makes one look thin. If that's what you want your coat to do, then fine. The waist suppression and flaired skirt helps buff up your chest and make you look muscular. Decide for yourself what you want your coat to do.
