New Girl star Jake Johnson got dressed for yesterday’s Film Independent Spirit Awards thanks to his alter-ego Nick Miller. “My character wears this!” he told of the John Varvatos suit and matching shoes he wore to the awards, where he represented his indie film, Safety Not Guaranteed (the movie won Best First Screenplay). While a wardrobe assistant at New Girl helped style the star—“I put a suit on, that seems like a lot for a Saturday,” he added—Johnson also noted that he gets his style advice from another cast member, Max Greenfield, a.k.a., Schmidt. “All jokes aside, I will a lot of times ask him, ‘What do you think? What should I wear?’ He’ll say, ‘A suit, no tie.’” Now that’s a style bromance we love!
