When the blog Tiny Mix Tapes jokingly titled a post, “Andrew Bird announces new album, new tour, new shirts and ties he just bought from H&M”, I was actually motivated to go check out the musician’s fashion sense. And boy is it suave; classy ties, suits and vests abound. Though the post title was glib, it inspired me to compose a gallery of other style-savvy male musicians, whose clothes represent them as much as their music. Click through the cut for a list of the guys (in no particular order) and a sampling of Bird’s tunes:



1. Kanye West
2. Gram Parsons
3. David Bowie
4. All members of The Rolling Stones
5. Jay-Z
6. Brandon Flowers of The Killers
7. All members of Interpol
8. Jarvis Cocker
9. Jimi Hendrix
10. The Ramones
11. Jamie Hince of The Kills
12. Andre 3000
