Matt Lauer is a true renaissance man, always up on the latest trends and fashions. So maybe that would explain why he was donning a man choker on the Today Show Wednesday morning.

Matt Lauer announced on the show that "“chokers for men are a thing now too. Asos has a wide selection of male chokers, some in velvet and others in cotton." But according to Lauer, "they're late to the game because, guys, I have been wearing a choker for years." Lauer then unbuttoned the top of his dress shirt to reveal a very tasteful black velvet man choker, much to the delight of his Today Show co-anchors. What a fashionista he is.
