So Handsome! Looking Back at Matt James’ Best Looks From Season 25 of ‘The Bachelor’

What a man! Season 25 of The Bachelor premiered in January 2021 — and it’s clear America has fallen in love with Matt James. Not only is the leading man attractive, compassionate and intelligent, but he’s also a snappy dresser.

As Matt’s contestants introduced themselves to the 29-year-old North Carolina native, he sported a black tuxedo that would make Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl blush. The jacket — which, unsurprisingly, fit like a glove — was velvet with satin lapels.

To top the look off, Matt added a bow tie, white pocket square and some seriously shiny dress shoes. Between his Night 1 outfit and the looks that followed, Tyler Cameron‘s BFF is one of the best-dressed Bachelors of all time.

Of course, Matt wasn’t just there to just show off his swagger. The former college athlete, who admittedly has never been in love, was looking for The One. “It’s not that he hasn’t said ‘I love you’ before. I think the problem with him is he realized being the Bachelor, he had never fully understood what it means,” longtime host Chris Harrison, who has since stepped away from the show, told Us Weekly in a November 2020 interview.

“He didn’t understand the weight of it — and now, I think this has really opened [his] eyes and one thing about the Bachelor or Bachelorette — you can ask any of them — it changes you. He is a different man than when he came to us in and he got really a crash course because he didn’t get the few steps of being on the show,” Chris 49, continued. “He really just ripped the Band-Aid off and sometimes, that hurts a little bit. So, I think he had a bit of a rude awakening of the man he is, the way he loves [and] what love means to him.”

No matter how bumpy things got for Matt … he always looked like a million bucks!
