Frontman Adam Levine is known for his plain-white T and blue skinny jeans, Mickey is known for his dorky glasses, Matt for his black T-shirts and his little goatee, and then there is James. Let's just say, if James had a starter kit it would contain a variety of stripped shirts (including the one pictured above).
We're giving you a fun and amusing countdown for you today, that being said, let's start the 5 times James Valentine rocked a stripped shirt countdown.
5. When James was teaching you how to play "She Will Be Loved"
Aside from his amazing voice, sick locks of hair, and obvious guitar playing skills, Mr. Valentine rocked a stripped shirt giving us a live-version lesson of Maroon 5's classic hit single, "She Will Be Loved." Have fun trying to concentrate on the task at hand...
4. When James serenaded us with "She Will Be Loved" live in concert
Maroon 5 is known for their lengthy, energetic, and groovy live shows, however, when Matt, Mickey, Sam, and PJ step off stage for a quick break from their set, Adam Levine and James take their talent to the forefront of the stage to perform an angelic acoustic rendition of "She Will Be Loved", and at this particular moment at the O2 Arena in London, England, James caught our eyes with his sweet, sweet stripped attire.
3. When James taught us how to play "Payphone" on guitar
Different day. Different lesson, Different song. And a different amazing, bright, and blue stripped shirt.
2. When James rocked "Jagger" on guitar at Rock In Rio
What's one of Maroon 5's biggest hits of all time? "Moves Like Jagger." What makes "Jagger" such an amazingly catchy hit? ...Other than Adam's slick high-notes, it's the guitar. Who plays the guitar? James Valentine. Who rocked the guitar live playing "Jagger" at Rock In Rio in 2011? James.
1. When James sung "Seven Nation Army" in front of 100,000 people in Brazil
Ok. So maybe he's not quite wearing a stripped shirt here, however this is one of Valentine's best moments. Ever. So without further-a-do, here's James singing The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" live in Sao Paulo. (Maybe his black shirt has tiny black stripes?)
