Justin Timberlake: I'm Bringing Fedoras Back

Justin Timberlake

Can you guess what Justin Timberlake wears in the just-released lyric video for his new single “Suit & Tie”? Okay, yes, a suit and tie, but he also dons something more surprising: a fedora.

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?

Man it must be a reallllly slow week in hollywood drama if this is what we get for a headline.

Um, he’s been rocking the fedora for a while now.

Bruno Mars has been wearing fedoras for years people. I love Justin Timberlake but he is not starting a trend.

agree with juju

Justin is obviously playing into the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Everyone here might backlash me for saying it … but you all know it’s true.

It’s like Beyonce who tries to get on the bandwagon every time something is hyped up. Please Justin, get over it.

Justin has been wearing a fedora for years, even before Bruno Mars was around. He looks great in it!

Uh, fedoras NEVER went away…work in fashion retail and have been selling them for over a decade, men, women, and children’s sizes.

LOL….enough said

This is a dumb story. Fedoras have always been in style and everyone always wears them, women and men.

You know who wears fedoras? Tools and dbags. And if you ladies fall for a tool wearing one you’ll find out. No they won’t be rich like Justin or Bruno. They’ll be waiting tables and cutting grass.
