Kittens, we’re starting to think the movers and shakers in the world of celebrity fashion hate ol’ T Lo. Here follows a scenario that would seem to have been meticulously designed to make us weep and rage: Three hot men, in mostly fabulous clothes…
… and two of them are sporting the nefarious and Satanic turtleneck. It’s only Tuesday and we’re looking at our 4th and 5th neck condoms of the week (entries one, two & three, if you like to assault your eyes with garments that offend them).
It’s funny how, after a half-decade or so of the early sixties slim-cut suiting coming back in style, we seem to be moving into a period of blocky-cut suits in muddy colors with turtlenecks. In other words: the seventies.
Goddammit. We still haven’t recovered from the last ’70s revival. Or the one before that. Or the one before that. Or the one before that.
Anyway, despite our turtle-based rage, this is a pretty good look for him. The color is slightly unusual, but it looks good on him. And while we can’t say he has what we’d call a knack for wearing one (very few do, which is what makes it Satan’s sweater of choice), the turtleneck doesn’t look totally awful on him.
We wish he’d kept the jacket buttoned for pictures, though.
This one hurts a little bit more because we love the jacket. Even worse, we are forced to admit that the neck sock actually works well with it.
Ricky, you’re too hot to be sporting that much hair and beard dye, not to mention such a conventional suit. Come back to us, Ricky. Come back to fabulous.
Yes, of course we will.
