Michael Jackson 'top of the socks style list'
Even though his life is much more famous for his talents and courtroom controversy, Michael Jackson has been noted as a man on the very edge of style by one writer.

Bryan Bove, a fashion expert writing for the Examiner, explained that he will always be remembered for many bad things, though he still remains one of music's most successful and talented performers - particularly in terms of the way he dressed.

Mr Bove continued: "Jackson will also be remembered for his signature style.

"He was the only person who could pull off wearing white socks with black skinny-leg pants and black shoes."

This was a trend he continued for the video to Invincible, with the performer teaming white socks with black shoes, a black suit, a red shirt and a classic fedora, which Jackson used to remind the world that "he still had it", the expert concluded.

This week, the compilers of the UK's album chart revealed that Michael Jackson is set to be number one in the charts this week given the stimulated interest following his untimely demise.
