Justin Tiimberlake in London

Posted on September 05, 2013

When Justin took a break from music to concentrate on his (*snicker*) acting, he ditched the hip hop and boy band clothing and went for more tailored, grown-up looks in order to sell his new image. Now that he’s concentrating on his music again, he’s back to his old styles:

 

Justin Timberlake browses for some jewelry at Dover Street Market in London.

But honestly, we question how well they still work for him.

Granted this his hip hop-lite. By a MILE.  The shirt’s really nice. Everything else makes him look either dorky, try-too-hard, or douchey (DAT HAT).

And that is one ratty-assed beard.

      He looks like a Koala.

        Last time, it was a Care Bear. There’s a motif going on here.

      • DilettanteDeconstructed

        That is an insult to koalas :(

    • Imasewsure

      Past the sell-by date for sure. He looks silly

      • Eric Stott

        He’s just too old for this – too bad, I was kinda liking the “New” Timberlake.

    • Nariya

      He needs to look up Chris Pine in a stupid hat and sweatpants if he wants to go for the scruffy beard thing. And those pants make his legs look stumpy. /grump

      Methinks J.T. is playing homage to Jude Law’s awesome hat-wearing capabilities.

      • Derek_anny

        I saw REM.

    • the_elle_word

      Pubesville.

    • sagecreek

      Honestly, in these pics he looks like a younger version of Mr. Ellsworth from Deadwood.

    • Ms Pamela Espinoza D

      He looks good regardless the douchey vibe

    • Chuck Barthelme

      When it comes to that hat, I think the problem is that it’s wearing him, not the other way around. It looks odd and out of place. Few guys can really pull off the casual fedora well. He’s not among them, sadly. I think he looks much better in tailored menswear than this grown up boy band stuff he’s been wearing.

    • SugarSnap108

      What’s the point of buttoning the top button when you’re not wearing a tie? (Other than to look stupid.)

      • Eric Stott

        Sometimes I do it myself to keep warm…but then again I’m 56 years old and not a celebrity so I can do what i damm please.

        • SugarSnap108

          Thank you for the explanation. And yes, you should do whatever you damn well please.

    • Sarah

      That hat is giving him major fivehead. And if that’s your chin’s best effort, then give it a rest and stop making it try.

    • decormaven

      Is it a hat? A knitted cap? Hard to tell in the darkness. But when you’re already getting a furrowed brow, it’s time to put away the pristine white kicks,

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Nope. Not even a little bitty bit. Nope.

    • paginatrix

      I just do not get the heavy panting for this guy. So-so singer. Kind of dweeby-looking. Unremarkable in every way.

      • sagecreek

        Right there with ya. But then, I’m not the target demographic.

      • Chuck Barthelme

        The only thing I’ll give him credit for is managing his career. Making something out of nothing. Whether we agree or not, he’s obviously doing something right. But I’m with you- don’t love his personal style, or his music much. He was good in The Social Network, but I think that might have been because he was actually very similar to his character.

        • Meg0GayGuys6

          I’m not a big fan either… my love of his music ended when NSYNC ended, but I thought he was awesome in Alpha Dogs. If you’ve never seen it, I was surprised at how much I liked it and him in it.

      • Denise Alden

        With ya, too. Do not get.

      • Kent Roby

        I seriously think his best work has been hosting SNL,,

    • kimmeister

      I’m oddly pleased that they still make Air Jordans even though Jordan hasn’t played pro basketball in a long time.

    • BEE DAYY

      Love the look except the hat. Perfect first date look

    • Qitkat

      He must be going for incognito. It’s working.

    • Jessica Freeman

      It’s always dat hat that pushes him into douche land for me.

    • JauntyJohn

      To be honest with you, I never really got his message.
      With that said, I just don’t see him pulling this off at all.

    • Little_Olive

      The day before at the Timberlake Household. JT: “Mom, I have to go to school dressed as a posh rapper for my play tomorrow”. Mom: OK, honey. I’ll whip up a great costume for you”.

      • Eric Stott

        Doesn’t Posh mean Pile Of SH*t ?

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      When my brother was in college his frat brothers called him Patches because he can’t grow a full beard.

      I’m not on board with this trend (if you can call it that) of men buttoning the shirt all the way up. Looks so stuffy! Which maybe he was going for that juxtaposition (lol! doubtful), but it just irks me.

    • Darren Nesbitt

      I hate white Jordans smh they always look big and clunky.

    • Amber J

      No longer trying to bring sexy back, I see.

    • marlie

      I much prefer the “suit and tie” version of JT.

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        Lol I’m still waiting for the “Tearin’ Up My Heart” JT to return :)

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      What is his current fascination with pieced together shirts? Everything about them and his love of that fucking hat grate my nerves.

    • Qitkat

      Hey, gay daddyuncles! TYPO ALERT! in the headline. All the bitter kittens’ eyelids are twitching like one of JT’s dance moves ;)

      • marlie

        Heh, I had to go back and look at it, and it still took me a minute to figure it out. :P

    • alyce1213

      When in Rome . . .

    • MilaXX

      He’s too old for boy band chic and it makes him look like a douche.

    • Vanja

      Hat prisoner.

    • Glam Dixie

      The whiff of douche is strong with this one.

    • formerlyAnon

      Ya know, when you’re 17 and run into your high school English teacher at a concert? And you’re torn between grudging respect that he likes “real” music and horror at such an ancient greybeard trying to dress hip?

      • Qitkat

        Yeah, and the teacher is probably all of 42.

        • formerlyAnon

          Judging by my kids’ reactions to their teachers, 32 would do it.

          • Qitkat

            P’rhaps, but I was going by the “greybeard.” Sob, my 41-year-oldest son is going grey in his whiskers. I am finding this very hard to accept :(

            • formerlyAnon

              Something about realizing that one’s kids are at or past the vague age one is inside one’s head is disorienting.

            • Qitkat

              Aww, now you’re channeling something like my mom used to say. She didn’t pin it down exactly but in her eighties she once told me she always felt much younger in her head, and I totally understood what she meant. I think this bitter kitten needs to go find something to do that makes her feel young again.

    • Getoverit

      That sure isn’t bringing sexy back.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I do not find him attractive at all.

    • Lilyana_F

      Yeah.. no.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I truly doubt I’ll ever be able to take him seriously.

    • Brown

      UGG when has a hat like that EVER looked good on ANYONE?!

      • Eric Stott

        Not since Sinatra

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Better than showing that awful hair. Eh, they’re trying to bring the 90′s back with these shirts and I’m not here for it. It’s a look, though.

    • P B

      Ah yes. White and cement 3′s. Sneaker nerds everywhere nod approval.

    • 1tsplove

      UGH, this reminds me of his terrible outfit during his VMA performance. WHY, Justin, why?!

      • Tonia682

        Yessssss! Those shirts are hideous!!!!

    • jen

      MC Heisenberg.

    • JulieTy

      He looks like Tom Hanks trying to dress as Jesse Pinkman.

    • elemspbee

      douchey.

    • guest2visits

      I think you just nailed why he is irritating me lately; I’m not exactly liking his boy-band look. I prefer his alter ego.

    • amber.

      we don’t accept him or his fashion. bye.

    • Aurumgirl

      There’s not a lot I could ever like about Justin Timberlake, and I generally find his fashion sense is deplorable (unless it’s clear he’s been styled for a specific event). But I can’t hate the guy because of his involvement in Lonely Island. He’s just disappointing because, on that issue alone, I know he’s better than this outfit.

    • Daktari100

      Hahahahahahaha
