Our man JT a.k.a Justin Timberlake, singer / celebrity designer extraordinaire, is named one of GQ’s Most Stylish Men 2009. Well, we couldn’t agree more with folks at GQ. Who’d be better topping the list than a man who brought back fedora craze, make sweater vests look cool, dare to pair ultra hip sneakers with classic tailored suits and make that man-child beard so very relevant?
As much style he oozes, we’re kinda shock that his girlfriend, Jessica Biel, never gave him thumbs ups on his look. But if you’re wondering where Justin got his sense of style from, well it’s from someone in the family. It’s his stepfather, Paul Harless, a recently retired banker. Justin told the story to GQ.
“Nobody dressed like my dad. When he worked at the bank, he looked like Richard Gere in Gigolo. And he would do it all the night before, laying out the suit he’d wear the next day. Even on weekends, if he had to go into the office, he’d wear a trouser pant with a V-neck sweater and tie. And I was like, I want to dress like that! He was just soo cool.”
