Jack Antonoff needs to be comfortable in his clothes otherwise he feels out of his body.

The musician, known for his work with bands fun. and Bleachers, is often on the road. He’s currently touring America with Brit star Charli XCX, showing off his edgy looks on stages all around the country.

“Marc Jacobs makes the best socks. I usually wear pants by Marc Jacobs also because they fit nicely,” Jack said to Details of his favourite stage outfits. “Typically, I can become obsessed with something and want to wear it every night, but that's not always a reality because of how much I sweat. So when I'm travelling, I will buy five versions of something like this mesh tank top I found.”

Charli has been wowing in an array of skimpy outfits, and Jack admits it’s just as important for him to get his look right.

The 31-year-old, who’s dating Girls star Lena Dunham, also says it’s a necessity that his clothes make him feel at his best – otherwise he’ll just end up feeling like a fish out of water.

“If you wear something on stage that you're not comfortable in, it's really upsetting, actually. You have to feel really good in your skin - and feel like the version of yourself that you want people to see. And if you don't? Then it's like this weird feeling of being back in the eighth grade. And you've worn something to school that you thought might have been cool. But then you got there and you're like, ‘Oh, f**k,' and you feel out of your body the whole day,” he explained.

“I'm not one of those guys who throws on anything. So I absolutely care what is on my body. The most important reason is making myself feel comfortable in what I feel is attractive - my version of that, anyway.”
