Deliberate?

Because this is only the tip of the Mickey Rourke bizzaro L.A. street style iceberg. Mickey Rourke has turned dressing badly into an art form. Mickey Rourke knows where to buy red leather cowboy boots and cropped knit hoodies with purple zips.

Mickey Rourke owns one t-shirt that just barely hides his nipples. And he loves it.

Mickey Rourke is a 65-year-old man dressing like 2004-era Nicole Ritchie and gives absolutely zero f**ks about the whole exercise. Most guys become smarter as they age; growing more comfortable with experience, wealth and decades of knowing what materials and shapes work best for them.

Mickey Rourke says, actually, I'm not going to play any of those games. I'm going to wear Ed Hardy and dress like 'Dirty' Christina Aguilera and there's absolutely nothing anyone can say or do to stop me.

And you'd be right, Mickey. There's not.

You... you do you?
