I'd say that James has actually gone towards wearing tighter fitting clothing. Everytime i've seen him, he's been wearing slim fit jeans and pretty tight fitting shirts, but then wears a loose fitting blazer which can look quite odd

James quite short and stocky though so it's a hard shape to dress as I'm similar shape though obviously from a woman's perspective. Too baggy makes you look like a sack of spuds but too tight emphasises short legs and any overhang

I didn't like that military jacket he wore at Glasto.. the badges and pockets made it look huge on him

James once told me he got his 'best-ever jumper' from Hanley market (in Stoke), and I have always hoped he meant the rainbow monstrosity from the first post in this thread. Looks like standard Hanley market fare tbh.
RACH, PLS, I NEED THAT JUMPER

Might have been the exact same clothes though, if you get my drift. Apart from the blazers, of course. And that military jacket he wore at Glasto made me think "Lufthansa pilot".

Indeed. This is just... wrong! So why so sad, Nicky? And wtf is that thing on his head?!? Manics and hats - a combination bound to end up in catastrophe. And if they do get it right about once every decade and actually pick hats that suit them (like the one on the left), their eclectic combinations with other pieces of clothing are sure to spoil it (the picture on the right isn't really that bad, but in the video it does look a bit weird).



Really, I'm starting to think we should open a separate thread for Manic Hat Disasters. This one looks like James is "wearing" a towel:



Well, just in case they ever run out of ideas to torture our aesthetic sensibilities with, here are some suggestions:

Not for Reinhold Messner, because this picture proves he was right all along - the Yeti does exist!!! When you mentioned a "skinned hamster coat" (you didn't say whether it was Nicky or James) I braced myself for a tough battle lying ahead because I thought you might mean the one below. I was prepared to take on everyone who dared to deny that this is by far the cutest, cuddliest, sweetest ball of fur EVER!!! Who needs Furby when you can have JDB? (Well, we can't really have him, but merely looking at him is better than owning a whole Furby factory.)

This has got to be one of their best group shots ever. Look at Sean's slippers! It's not only their clothes, though; the expressions on their faces clearly show that they were having a lovely day and enjoyed posing for the camera.
Who said that commies can't pose for Vanity Fair?

Is your grandpa still single? Or your maths teacher, for that matter? I mean, without the glasses... not so bad. I do like the beard.
Lol,You've got a crush on him, you have lacked a father figure... I'm jocking . Even if my grandpa and math teacher are single I don't thik they are as charming as James could be. You know, they do not write any kind of nice music. As a man I can say that in recent times James's looking well, I think so. I do not like beards on people who don't need it.

And it is James in this one, right? He looks so.... different...?
Quote:
He doesn't look like James just because of his East-Asian type eyes, i don't know. JDB's chameleon-like eyes have gradually changed over time. In the first Manics' pics James used to cross the eyes, after that he appeared blue-eyed. When I watched the video for Tolerate for the first time i got used to the idea that was his natural eyes colour (up to that time I've only seen the video for Motorcycle) .

You're right, he has made a real progress with is wardrobe, skninny jeans and tight shirts make him look even more spirited, energetic and younger but that loose jacket ruins everything.
