The many style phases of Thom Yorke are well-documented on this site. Well, at least one era is: his on-the-precipice-of-rock-stardom bleached ponytail of the late ‘90. There have, however, been many phases in between, including the tight haircut circa-Kid A and the messy chop that followed 2007's In Rainbows. Fast forward to today and we find Yorke more relaxed than ever, looking not unlike his fellow Angelenos who patiently wait in line for Sqirl while, like, fulfilling their daily Headspace requirement.
Dressed for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, Yorke’s clearly eased into an entirely different era of style, and dabbled heavily with the influence of Los Angeles. He’s wearing a low-scooping tee, what appears to be a sporty Rolex, the entire collection of beaded bracelets city officials give to new residents at LAX, an LA-staple barely-hanging-on beanie, and the coup de grace: white Birkenstocks. Someone get this dude to Runyon Canyon—stat!
