John Legend at the UJA Luncheon

Posted on June 25, 2013

Nicely done:


John Legend attends UJA-Federation Of New York Music Visionary Of The Year Award Luncheon.

We have some minor fit quibbles – he always seems to wear his pants a skosh too tight –  but for the most part, he’s the very picture of the chic, cool summer man. We’re digging all the tone-on-tone here. That tie’s an unusual choice, but it really works.

    We do NOT quibble about the tightness of the pants, for it allows us to see #DatPrint so much better. But he does look rather lovely here. Just nice and summery and refreshing.

  • MilaXX

    I agree on the minor quibbles but overall he looks very summery and fresh. I like the tone on tone because it’s not a drab color.

  • marlie

    He can really pull the tone-on-tone look off. The jacket seems a skosh snug, but he looks great, overall.

    • SugarSnap108

      Yes, I think it’s the jacket, and not the pants, that’s a bit too tight. You can see it especially around the upper arms. Give your guns room, Legend!

      He looks adorable, though.

  • Clueless_Jock

    A great look but the jacket sleeves are too long.

  • formerlyAnon

    He looks good, but for me, the tie just barely redeems this from being too bland, color-wise.

  • clatie

    I saw him at the Hollywood Bowl Saturday night and he was BEAUTIFUL. Also see him at the airport a lot and he always is just low-key wheeling his bag, wearing perfect trousers or jeans, sweater. No assistant, no fuss. Big love from me.

  • nannypoo

    I like these colors for him. I think his sleeves are too long and the jacket is twisting in a strange way that makes it look too tight, but he looks great anyway.

  • majorbedhead

    He is a fine, fine looking man. Sure, a few quibbles, but that is one guy who looks good in just about anything.

  • Those shoes are perfection, really.

  • That jacket is far too tight in the arms and chest.

    • Fordzo

      I’m more bothered by the waist. It almost gives him an hourglass figure.

      • sekushinonyanko

        The hourglass going on here is definitely…interesting. I mean it kicks the heck out of the pear that some fits give some guys, but still isn’t exactly the V that guys presumably are aiming for.

  • gabbilevy

    Did Sausage Friday come early?! My stars! *fans self* Legend lookin’ purty. And yes, his jacket’s too tight. Not complaining about the tightness of his pants. Ever.

  • mickiemonkey

    De-lish. Yum, yum, yum. I am having impure thoughts.

  • I_Heart_TLo

    I love how the tie complements his lips. I’m not being snarky. I seriously love it.

  • fursa_saida

    He’s just inhumanly cute. I feel nothing sexual toward him at all, but every time he smiles straight down the camera I just want to yell “SMILE AND THE WHOLE WORLD SMILES WITH YOU, LEGEND.” Sparkles coming out of my screen, the works.

    • Anathema_Device

      haha… I also went all caps-lock on his cuteness.

  • Anathema_Device

    The fit is making him look a little bottom heavy. But he is so FREAKIN’ CUTE i cannot stand it. I cannot look at him without getting the song “Nutmeg” in my head from the Colbert Christmas Special.

  • Annarosa

    Bellissimo. He’s always so elegant. Can’t wait to see his concert here in Milan next July 9th.

    • Rand Ortega

      You live in Milan AND you get to see the Legend? Irrational Hate is verboten among BK’s & PUF’s (it’s in the Handbook), but I’m sooo jealous right now… ; )

      • Annarosa

        wanna join? 😉

        (I would’n be so jealous about living in Milan…) (except for the fashion. I understand that jealousy)

  • Fordzo

    “…he always seems to wear his pants a skosh too tight…”

    If you got it, flaunt it.

  • poggi

    Nicely done. I love it. The outfit is in service to the shoes. Which is what I do whenever I have new fabulous shoes.

    I forgot to mention that I really like his shoes. no male equivalent of nude pumps for him.

  • Any time one can see the outline of the interior front pocket, the pants are too tight. The jacket seems tight too, from how it’s pulling under the arms. Kudos on the tie but it doesn’t overcome the fit deficiencies. SO close, yet so far.

  • Glam Dixie

    His stance is….odd. Slightly tilted forward, feet spread. Does he have a stomach ache?

  • Mmm… he looks like a scoop of ice cream… maybe butter pecan? Mmmmm. Now I kind of want to lick him.

  • Kimberlini

    Rose gold is really nice on him.

    • CrazyAuntie

      Rose gold is the perfect description.

  • Danielle L

    He looks like good cologne smells. Yum.

  • No major complaints here. Love the color of the tie.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Thank you John Legend for showing that someone out there still knows how to fit a man for suit, it is not perfect but a major step up from some of the other menfolk we have seen this week.

    You are all kinds of cute here, my man, Whoever you are serenading today will feel all the more special because you took the time for good tailoring. Carry on.

  • Love the tie, and LOVE that he’s not wearing gray.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    If he were any yummier we’d all be going into diabetic shock about now.

  • quiltrx

    Looks pretty good, but he looks like he knows the jacket’s too snug, by his stance.
    Also, if I’m going to criticize women for wearing gowns too close to their skin tone, I’ve got to tsk a little bit at this color on him.

  • unbornfawn

    Looking good.

  • Sunshine16

    yum…always yum with this man
