Grammy-winning R&B crooner Miguel graces the cover of Billboard‘s 2015 “Music’s Men of Style” Issue, on newsstands now, which is also fronted by Wiz Khalifa, Sam Hunt, and Adam Lambert.

The artist is currently on his “WILDHEART” tour in support of his incredibly sexy new album of the same name, which debuted at #1 on R&B Albums Chart.

Inside Billboard, he shares how he wishes he could raid Miles Davis’ 1980s closet, who his favorite designers are and more.

Check out more from his Miller Mobley-lensed shoot, along with a few interview snippets and a behind-the-scenes clip below.

Whose closet he’d raid:

“’80s Miles Davis; it just doesn’t get any better. He took it there — the accessories, the colors, the boldness. And it was lived — his look wasn’t just for show, it was part of his on- and offstage life.”

Item he’ll never part with:

“My dad’s old Levi’s denim jacket. It’s faded blue, super washed out and ­perfectly worn in. The lapel is all frayed, and the buttons are hanging on for dear life. It has a beautiful red and black lining that shows through on the outside because it has all these holes.”

His favorite designer:

“Ennio Capasa from Costume National. [Saint Laurent creative director] Hedi Slimane is one of the best right now, but in time Costume National is going to be a real special brand.”

His go-to stores:

“Opening Ceremony is always a good one. If I’m going shopping for leisure-wear, it’s from thrift stores, which I’m never giving away. In Los Angeles, that shit is sacred.”

Miguel is also VH1’s “You Oughta Know” artist this month. See him break “Coffee” down into a 60-second performance below.
