What with the way comedians tend to downplay their style in favor of a comfortable, more creatively liberal wardrobe, we tend to take note when one dresses up a little. In this case, with Jimmy Fallon and Rainn Wilson at the NBC Pre-Super Bowl event, we get a double dose of geek-chic.
Fallon doesn't frequently catch our eye fashion wise, but we like the black/white/gray combo here and think it will serve him well as he steps up to take over Conan O'Brian's Late Night desk job. With a more substantial role in television, he needs to start dressing his age.
And Rainn Wilson, who is normally so hard to see through the thick veil of his The Office character Dwight Schrute, is the real style winner in this duo. The high-buttoned vest is not only classy but also slims him down; and his color combination confirms our sneaking suspicion that black and pale blue is the new black and white.
