New Girl clip: Nick explains his wacky outfit inspiration
Don’t look to Nick Miller for fashion inspiration — or maybe do, if you’re into thoughtful, if unstylish, outfits.
In an exclusive clip from this week’s New Girl, Nick gets all dolled up for a literature conference. The results are… questionable: “I found four authors with strong looks and I combined them,” he explains to a very confused Jess. His white suit comes from Tom Wolfe, his yellow-tinted glasses from Hunter S. Thompson, his bandanna from David Foster Wallace, and his Presidential Medal of Freedom from Toni Morrison.
Jess then tries to spruce up his look by rummaging through his closet, where she finds tax returns and beef dangling on clothes hangers. Why? “Because I don’t have a file cabinet and because I couldn’t eat all the meat in one night,” he says. Duh.
Watch the clip above, and see New Girl when it airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
Zooey Deschanel plays lovable Jess, who is plodding through life with a good group of friends.
