Ne-Yo at the 2013 Do Something Awards

Posted on August 02, 2013

Some of you are going to thank us for this right now and some of you are going to thank us for this by the end of today.


Ne-Yo attends the 2013 Do Something Awards in Hollywood, California.

Those who thank us immediately will do so because it’s Sausage Friday once again and, well, just look at him. He’s adorable.

Those who thank us by the end of the day will be the fashionistas, who, after a long Sausage Friday of boring men in mostly boring suits (we’re warning you now), will look back fondly on this inaugural post of the day and note how much style it contained.

Granted, we’re not loving the gold crotch chain, but that’s really our only objection. You might think we’d bitch about the pants hem, but we definitely think a little puddle is to be expected when you pair a suit with sneakers. And for the record, on that point: we’ve bitched a lot about people like Robert Downey, Jr., who tend to (in our eyes) ruin a lot of really expensive high-end suiting by pairing it with gigantic kicks more suitable for ten-year-olds. This does not mean we hate suits with sneakers or canvas shoes. On the contrary; we think it’s a great semi-cazh look, if it’s done correctly. A pair of Chuck Taylors, which are pretty much an iconic fashion item at this point, is an example of doing it correctly. We even like the white t-shirt here, since he dressed it up considerably.

We’re choosing to ignore the one-sleeve thing, as well as the hat. At least on the latter, he can pull it off. Most men can’t.
