Neil Patrick Harris, Happy Birthday!

Posted on

Suit Up

Just call him Neil Waitforit Birthday Boy Patrick Harris. Oh, goodness. Or don’t, because I am not good at that.

Of course, no one can deliver Waitforits quite like NPH, which is why we celebrate the How I Met Your Mother actor today. (He’s turning 39.) And the best way to honor him? By looking our best!

In case you forgot your tie at home (WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!) here’s something to get you started: EW’s ‘Suit Up’ template. (Print full version here.)

I encourage you to decorate this and wear it as a symbol of your appreciation for Harris, Barney Stinson, and suits. Then, take a picture and tweet it to @EW (#SuitUpforNPH) or share it with us on Facebook. Maybe you’ll earn a retweet or a little confidence-boosting “like.” (Bonus points go to anyone who sticks it on their flight suit, penguin suit, pajama suit, snow suit, or diamond suit.)
