Designer Neil Barrett says creating tour costumes for Justin Timberlake was a natural fit.
Neil Barrett identifies with Justin Timberlake's style.
The designer has been dressing the 'Holy Grail' hitmaker since 2008 and says creating his tour outfits comes naturally because they share the same classic style with an urban twist.
He told VOGUE.co.uk: ''I particularly like Justin's personal style. For me, it's like his music: a combination of urban/street with classical, which is the same as my design ethos. It's a hybrid of sartorial elements.''
Neil's snazzy suits were last seen on Justin during his '20/20 Experience' world tour and the pair worked closely together to ensure the outfits looked as cool as they were comfortable.
He said: ''Justin's been wearing my designs for some time now and we've worked together sufficiently for both of us to understand each other - fit, fabrics and design.''
Neil also revealed his favourite ever Justin song is dancefloor anthem 'Sexy Back', because ''it's iconic and it makes me grin.''
The former 'N Sync superstar previously worked with Neil for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and his 'Legend of Summer Tour' with Jay Z, as well as for a few of his music videos.
