Sure, a rock star needs talent, but without a certain bad-ass swagger, he’s, well…Clay Aiken. For his upcoming role as Stacee Jaxx in the summer blockbuster, Rock of Ages, Tom Cruise captures the rock-god vibe expertly; he’s all tattoos, tongue and dog tags. Underlying Jaxx’s larger than life persona, the movie’s soundtrack plays homage to some of the the biggest classic rock hits from the 80s. Think Journey, Poison, Twisted Sister and Bon Jovi.
Besides a leather jacket and an electric guitar, nothing gives a rock star his swagger like a pair of slim-fitting, worn-in jeans. And that’s what inspired our newest men’s style, the Tom slim cut jean, shown above in the Mangum wash. The slim-leg style screams confidence and adds instant edge to any outfit. To get the full-on Stacee Jaxx look, pair Tom with a deep white v-neck, combat boots, and a leather moto jacket. Or tone it down a notch with a simple black tee and your favorite Converse kicks. Whichever way you choose to wear Tom, make sure you wear ‘em with rock-star swagger.
Rock of Ages hits theaters June 15th, 2012.
