Tonight I watched Richard in the livestream from the Japanese press conference. And once again, I loved his outfit. That Gucci cloth-and-leather varsity jacket, the grey tee, the jeans and the return of the black kicks along with a clean-shaven face had him looking hip, young and ready for the sock hop, indeed. The looks may be a blast from the past, but he doesn’t look anything like an old fogey.
At the ARIAs, he was rockin’ the waxed jeans, black jacket and heavy stubble (and the kicks! Some dislike them, but they suit me just fine). The looks are retro, they are classic, and yet very fresh and stylish, too. He really seems comfortable in his own skin and his new clothes and this fan thinks he’s definitely got the LOOK.
