Bruce Springsteen, back in the 70s or 80s, I haven't followed what he's doing these days so no idea about that. Not so much what he wore as the way he wore it, the kind of - probably very planned - slightly disheveled way he would wear something, the way he could put on a jacket and not seem selfconscious.

Fantastic artist, still making great albums today.

It's a tough look to pull off, looking like "you don't think too much about it, but you probably do" look. Gainsborough could do it, IMO

And agreed, his still turning out great music, although I prefer his solo work to the E Street Band LPs...

His last 2 albums were class, one with and one without the e street band.
Not stuck in the 60's

I'll give this to Springsteen, at least he still wears proper "adult" shoes ,unlike most performers of his age wearing black trainers on stage (you're not fooling anyone).

The Libertines (at least Doherty and Barat) had a great "wasted Mod" look, a authentic "swagger" and their music was fantastic IMO... the last band that I was really blown away by...
