One of today’s best-dressed men once wore Birkenstocks on Conan.

How is it that one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood today, Mr. Joseph Gordon-Levitt once selected the worse shoes to wear on an interview on one of the most famous late night talk shows ever?? Skip to 2:46 for the guilty evidence. I’m shocked! I mean, I knew he had his dorky Third Rock from the Sun phase but that was costume and we’ve all had our awkward phases. This guy knew he was going to be on stage with Conan O’Brien for all the world to see and decided on wiggling his bare toes in quite possibly the world’s ugliest shoes (this was before Vibram 5 fingers and Crocs). This just goes to show that the most clueless of men can turn into one of the most stylish men out there. I don’t know when the switch clicked to actually caring about how he looks but I want to say a giant thank you on behalf of all the people who appreciate well-dressed men. Thank you, Joseph for never exposing your Birkenstocks on late night television since then. And I have to admit it’s quite charming that this modern T&P man was once a dorky boy next door type. This is truly an ugly duckling story, Trig and Polished style. From clueless to debonair.

Second offense. I can believe he arrived at the photo shoot this way, but for no one to style him for the photoshoot is unbelievable.

And since Trig & Polished is all about positive reinforcement here are some pics of JGL doing it “ohh sooo well”.
