Renovating houses always seemed to be his strong point.
But Josh Barker almost made his mark as a fashionista on The Block finale on Sunday.
He looked dapper in an all-black tailored suit, shirt and tie combo and even swept his long hair back into a neat man bun, but let the look down by forgetting to wear shoes.
Suits you! Josh Barker almost hit the mark for dress sense on Sunday’s finale of The Block, instead showing up barefoot to the show’s final auction
The 28-year-old looked quite the gentlemen (from the ankle up) as he stood beside his 24-year-old partner Elyse Knowles during the finale’s nail-biting property auction.
The Melbourne-based carpenter’s dark-coloured ensemble comprised of a button-up blazer, tailored trousers and a collared shirt.
A slim black tie and a pair of black skinny jeans rounded out his image.
Despite his clothes being so smart, Josh foregoing footwear left some confused.
Although in a saving grace, Josh’s usually-ruffled long brown locks were well groomed as he tied them up in an elegant man bun.
Why? Josh wore no shoes or socks as he attended the auction for The Block finale
