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?

Oh Please…….my husband has been wearing his for 2 years now and it’s not as though he was the first! My son has two and I admit I like them so much more than your standard baseball cap or God forbid the raunchy Truckers Hats

Come on… I like JT, but he’s been trying to bring hats back — very similar to that — for over 15 years now…

Anybody watch White Collar? Fedoras never really go out of style.

Thank you Mateo!!!!! The first thing I thought about these pictures was ‘ What fedora? that’s a trilby”. It would be so nice if more people knew what they’re talking about. More power to Indiana Jones.

laughs, are you serious? They never left.

I AM RUNNING TO WALMARTS RIGHT NOW TO BUY A FEDORA ,, NOT ,,, THIS HAT WENT OUT OF STYLE YEARS AGO , AND HONESTLY LET IT STAY THERE

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Justin but MATT BOMER is the man who brought the fedora back and let’s just give credit where credit is due cause no one rocks a fedora and suit like him!!

Sierra on

@Trisha, I’m curious: What do you do for a living?

@Morgan: That’s the first thing I thought when I read the headline. :-)

Sandra on

I thought Matt Bomer of the TV program White Collar brought the Fedora back!!!!!!!

Tina on

Loved it. I found myself smiling by the end of it, which was a lovely change after being angered by lame photo posts from my f-tard “friends” on Facebook.
