We’re not entirely sure just what look Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan was going for with this stripey Hello Sailor rig he wore to the L.A. premiere of *Iron Man* the other night. Actually the outfit looks more suitable to swabbing the decks than manning the mainsail, though it’s possible Corgan wasn’t thinking nautical thoughts at all. Perhaps the movie’s comic book basis simply went to his head.

Meanwhile the Pumpkins, who were (partially) reunited last year, were recently honored with a spot on the Hollywood RockWalk, which while not exactly the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is something of an honor nonetheless. On that occasion at least, Corgan sported a perfectly respectable if not very rock star-ish pink button-down oxford.
