My British Crushes: JLS- Jack the Lad Swing

Ortise, Marvin, Aston, JB

I rarely get crushes on guys, but the up and coming group Jack the Lad Swing aka JLS are the execption- they’re just down right adorable. (I understand that this is a man’s blog, I just had to get that on the table.) I got word of these guys when someone was talking to me about how many United Kingdom readers I had and that they heard one of the group members considers himself an Urban Gentleman- I was linked to this interview. They are current contestants on a british television talent show called The X Factor, it’s the biggest talent competition show in Europe (basically like American idol). Leona Lewis was discovered on X Factor.

They Can Sing Huh… the next British Boy II Men?
Okay well I don’t technically have a crush on them, but I do like their style- it has certainly transformed over the past few months. They started off in cute matching pastel polos and now they manage to mix their individual styles into a very well polished look.

I think it’s cool that they have designated colors like the Power Rangers- one always wears red, another blue, green, and yellow. Sometimes the things that seem the corniest are the coolest, it’s like Pharrell loving spongebob sqaurepants. These guys are hella talented and I can definitely see them being a hit world-wide. I KNOW girls will go crazy over them in America especially since we haven’t hand a big male group since B2K. From what I have heard them say in their interview they would like to be more like classic all male groups (i.e Boyz II Men) than the typical boy bands (i.e Backstreet Boys).

a very casual coordinated look.

they’re taking it back with the satin jackets,
reminds me of starter jackets.

Here’s a couple of their many funny videos on youtube.

A bugle? His style game goes kinda hard- I like that, very original.
(but “blow my bugle”, how rude, lol)
Oh and check the A’s hat in the background- I’m lovin’ it.

I love the way British people talk!
