Jack & Jones: Made from Cool: The Original Christopher Walken 2

What is it about Christopher Walken that makes him so goddamn great. Well, where do you begin?

Whether it’s the incredibly unique delivery of his lines or his impeccable taste in clothing, Christopher Walken is the very definition of cool. Women want him and men want to be him... or at least we want him to be our really, really cool, well-dressed Dad.

This all-round great guy has a few tricks up his Jack & Jones sleeve worth sharing so watch this space as JOE brings you more of the wonderful Walken.
