It’s tough to distract us from a hot man in a nice suit (particularly if that man is Justin Timberlake) but let’s face it: The last time a fedora was cool was, well, the last time he wore a fedora in a music video — the 2002 clip for his first solo effort, “Like I Love You” (seen on the right in the photo above).
But it appears Timberlake wants to do for the fedora what he once did for sexy: bring it back. And to his credit, the superstar’s 2013 version of the topper is much like the 2013 version of Timberlake himself: more laid-back, more stylish and way less cheesy. If we have to deal with a wave of Timberlake style copycats again, at least this is a look we can get behind.
You can watch the smooth (slightly NSFW) lyric video for “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z below. Tell us: Are you ready for fedoras to be a thing again?
