Though "White Collar" small screen star Matt Bomer is already well known in GQ and fashion circles as one of the best-dressed men in television and much admired for his near-perfect coif, America is about to get to know him even better in the much-anticipated movie "Magic Mike," in which he co-stars with Channing Tatum as a male stripper. If your male clients aren't already lusting after Matt's classic, Rat Pack style, expect a rush of interest after the flick hits theaters this weekend.

Check out a few of Matt's variations on his now-nearly-famous "Bomer" style, as well as these other helpful tips for styling your male clients during a heat wave.
