Though best known as the cocksure host of E's long-running 'The Soup,' as well as the cocksure Jeff Winger on the beloved NBC cult comedy, 'Community,' Joel McHale is actually… well, pretty cocksure in person. But it works: His outsized personality is a perfect fit for his towering six-four frame and big-screen-ready good looks. And like the characters he plays, he's admirably quick on his feet: In a recent chat with MensJournal.com, he shared his favorite java joints, his love of fast cars, and his thoughts on fashion naysayers.

McHale admits he has always cared about his appearance – "probably stupidly so," he says – and yet he gives no credence to men who claim to rise above fashion. "If guys really didn't care, they would wear, like, a torn sport coat with an Iowa sweatshirt and a skirt," he says. "Even if you wear the same thing every day, you're still actively trying to communicate a certain look." In his case, McHale is especially fond of New York-based Isaora, a company that he says makes pieces "inspired by snowboard clothing, all very cool and fashionable." When it comes to suits, he's a fan of Calvin Klein, for style and material, but also fit – always a tall order for a very tall guy.
