For his big Sexiest Man Alive reveal on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the actor, 33, pulled out all the high-fashion stops (thanks to some help from his stylist Jason Rembert, who also styled Jordan's steamy SMA cover shoot) in an autumnal monochrome look, including a Dunhill turtleneck that expertly showed of his upper body.

Jordan also stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January of this year, and went high-fashion in a Raf Simons jacket, Ksubi jeans and Christian Louboutin shoes. (Kimmel accurately predicted during this appearance that the actor would be a great SMA!)

Like we said — turtleneck titan. And apparently the style is his look of choice for Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearances. In 2018, while promoting Creed 2, Jordan teamed a black sweater under his perfectly tailored striped suit.

Not even the chevron print on this Prada jumper (worn during the actor's February 2018 appearance on The View where he talked about the success of Black Panther) could distract us from his megawatt style.

This Coach dino sweater sold out quickly in 2016, likely because of Jordan's expert modeling on the carpet at Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con Bash.
