I’ve got a confession: I was a real ride-or-die Jonas Brothers guy back in the day. And by “back in the day,” I mean I’m a real ride-or-die JoBro guy, period. Don’t judge me. I’ve seen all two seasons of their smash-hit eponymous TV show, and you bet your ass I forced my sisters to feign interest in the complete Camp Rock franchise so I could pretend to begrudgingly watch the movies with them each time. I’m not going to lie, the Jonas Brothers kind of used to kill it.
For me, it wasn’t so much about the music as it was the consistently massive fits these guys were getting off. I shit you not: The Jonas Brothers really don’t get enough credit for their long-term stylistic influence. They were super early to the skinny suiting wave, and by bucking some of the ridiculous tropes still associated with boy bands at the time (like dressing identically) they pioneered a template that would later be mimicked by almost every style-savvy boy band down the line.
It goes without saying that every dude in my middle-school was low key trying to dress like one of these motherfuckers, but for me, the best-dressed Jonas was Joe, by far. It’s good to see you again, old friend. A lot has changed, but one thing hasn’t: you’re still out here getting these fits off. I mean, look at yourself, man. If this isn’t the platonic ideal of the post-workout fit, I don’t know what is. I can’t believe you got dogs, dude! We should definitely catch up.
With a public track record as long as Joe’s, how many of you would wind up with that many Ws in the grueling sport that is getting dressed without looking like a dick? Show the best-dressed Jonas some respect.
