Well I figured he would have a ton of leather on at the Boston show but he seems to have ditched the leather look for this tour.

Bono has always needed a stylist. But the Dead Opossum Mullet takes the cake.

It's all Frank Sinatra's fault, he told them to style up.

He's always been beautiful anyway.  If anyone could pull off the dead possum on your head look, it was Bono :o

I must point out that, though it has become the notorious mullet in retrospect, back in the day it seemed pretty cool.

In my opinion Bono looks quite cool the way he dresses. He's always worn mostly black clothes, and what's wrong about this?
He really dresses cool considering he will be 58 next year.
And I like the round glasses he wears now. They're trendy. As someone said before, the wraparounds are sooo out of fashion.

I like the way he dresses...

It's not trend that is important with glasses but what shape they are to best compliment your face shape. Small round lenses may have worked for the more delicate John Lennon face shape but they are silly on Bono's big head! He needs large square glasses or even the aviators which looked decent on him as in the Invisible video.

I do like that he stubbornly does his own thing but just would like some variation and better fit. Oh and some new blazers instead of his go to 'got in a brawl at a dinner party' jacket.

You're right, the round glasses are not the best shape for his head/face, but I like him wearing them anyway :)
But I would be happy also if the aviators would come back  :)

As for his clothes, he seems to wear the same on almost every occasion, namely the wax coated denims (it looks like a wax coated denim to me) and either a denim jacked/wax coated denim jacket at present. No matter whether it's concert or on tv or private.
But this is also what I "love" about him: he doesn't care and he seems to be very frugal (apart from the fact that his clothes are probably expensive). Although he could buy a whole clothing store.

He also doesn't care when his jacket sleeves or trouser legs are way too long. He could employ tailors 24/7 in each of his residences who make the clothes suitable for him, but he doesn't care at all.

But when I saw him in ze four weeks ago, he was wearing a shirt which seemed to be one that he did not wear before when he was photographed :D

I think Bono looks really good in the black jean jacket.  I really disliked his suit coat on SOI.  He seems to be a person who gets stuck on a trend for a long while, then moves on to something else when he's ready.  He's not really one to change it up much.

Ya. The "Bono Mullet" was cool as hell.
As was the "John Taylor" mullet.
There were several others but those were my personal faves.

Dave Vanian pulled it off better.  I don't think think it's a bad look, but it is for Bono.  AB era black leather suit with long hair and the fly glasses was his best look.

If you are a straight guy, you probably have no clue how hot Bono was, mullet and all. 
   Yes, the rosary was given to him by JPII.  Despite JPII's strong conservative bent, Bono seems to have admired him quite a bit.
