Interview With Singer John Mayer About Clothes, John Mayer's Fashion Tips 2009-03-11 07:00:22

John Mayer, Secret Fashion Player, Take 1

Would you have ever guessed John Mayer has a secret fashion obsession? He's not a flashy rock star, but let's not forget he is a rock star, and therefore knows it helps to look good — no — damn good. I caught up with the curly haired cutie at New York Fashion Week, and we talked, and talked, and talked. So what did Fab and John have to talk about? Read and see!

You're more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy . . .

"Check this out: it appears as if I’m a jeans and t-shirt guy, but if I were to walk you through my closet, you’ll notice one thing about what I wear — you can never tag me. You can never say that I’m wearing this by that person. Cause I only normal wear stuff by my friends."

So your friends design clothes?

"Yeah. I don’t even want to give the brands away. Some of these brands are clothing lines so small that it's technically an artisan process and not a mass production thing. So I wear things that look like I just threw stuff on, but it’s the best version. When I’m wearing a hoodie, it looks like I just threw a hoodie on. I’m wearing what I discovered and figured out is the best hoodie I can find. And I’ll tell you, if you ever want to know the best hoodie, I know the best hoodie. The best hoodie ever made is by a company called Loopwheeler. It's all [styles] from the '40s and '50s that no one uses in America anymore. It makes one meter of fabric every hour. Do you know a store called Collette in Paris? They sell Loopwheeler. It’s the greatest stuff in the world."

So what's your fashion advice for the world?

"Can I give you John Mayer’s fashion tips? Will you make a blog about this? Ready? . . . Number one, in no particular order: basics are the hardest to find. The word basic always gives the impression that it’s the easiest to find. Basics are incredibly hard to find. When you find a white t-shirt, a hoodie, a pair of jeans. When you find a basic you love, buy four of them. Because you need to create a basic private stock. Because basics come and go very quickly and next season you can be sure they will change. And it will never be the same."

Stay tuned for more of John's fashion tips!

I'm amazed at how I much I wasn't aware of the validity of the annoyance he causes people. It's like 'if an asshole could actually speak, what would it say? John?.'
