We know what you’re thinking: That’s one tall drink of water. And, chances are, you’ve never been thirstier. We only partially attribute the knee-weakening effect to Rick Fox’s fortunate features. The rest comes courtesy of his fine choice in clothing.

The former NBA player turned actor sported a look that mixed business with pleasure for the red carpet premiere of “Dirt” and it paid off handsomely. Without the slightly distressed dark denim, this outfit would have trouble garnering kudos. But the jeans rebel against any humdrum qualities the business look conjures up.

The fact that he fastened the coolness with an embellished belt would normally leave a bad taste in our mouthes, but not when put into context. Ordinarily, such accessories get coupled with undersized graphic tees and pounds of chunky man jewelry, but Fox took the dapper route. In this case, the belt acts as an unexpected surprise rather than an unwelcome guest.

Vanessa Williams’ ex even manages to add flavor to the professional portion of his business casual fusion. The burgundy sweater vest and peekaboo burnished tie act as the roadblocks to what could have turned this into an accountant’s uniform. Strip him of his windowpane blazer, throw a newsboy hat atop those curls and you’ve got a modern day Gatsby.

To mimic the sly stylings of Fox, consider these options.
