I really think that the "I like what this celebrity is wearing, lets find out more" stage of fashion interest comes much earlier than the "I'm gonna have a tab open on Style Forum more than half the time that my computer is open" stage of fashion interest, and if they're anything like me most people who are at the later stage don't pay that much attention to how celebrity dresses anymore.

Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. Anyhow it's not a diss on celebrity styling and the people who are interested in that. It's the observation that they become increasingly less relevant the longer you've been interested in men's style.
I’ve been here a decade and a half and haven’t really seen ‘I want to dress like Beckham’ stuff.

The other thing to bear in mind is that you’re projecting your expertise onto normal clueless people who probably see nothing there other than “brown leather jacket”.
Never seen anyone say "I want to dress like X," However, I have seen people post a jacket and ask to find something similar.

This thread has always been around fashion forward and good makers not look like X.

For what kind of fit? I personally prefer the custom but it’s just a cleaner look. If you wanted a more traditional DR the No Star might work better for you.
What would be more versatile? Also if anyone has fit pics of the No star, that'd be helpful. Seen plenty of the Leon Custom.

Edited to add: Zendaya is distractingly stunning. I can't take my eyes off that picture.
Jesus Christ that is a figure-flattering dress. ... and I've just become an admirer of whoever this is.

Funny because I just did a search on "Beckham" on this thread only to find numerous examples of referring to his fits as awesome and questions about the jackets he's wearing with links on where to buy them. But I'm not gonna bother linking to them, we all know how to search here. And no, I didn't post any of the referenced examples.

you gotta search someone, maybe @Understatesman had a Leon no star and posted fits
I no longer have that jacket in my fit grid, but I'm sure it's in an older post somewhere.
