He's a musical legend whose second home is the stage.
But it appears when he's not performing, Sir Paul McCartney still has a bit to learn after he stepped out with a hole in his beige chinos while heading out for a bite to eat with his wife Nancy Shevell.
The Beatles star, who turns 72 on Wednesday, looked oblivious to his fashion fail as he walked out of the restaurant in London's St. John's Wood on Tuesday afternoon.

Apart from the hole in his slacks, the rest of Paul's ensemble was presentable. Wearing a navy blazer, paisley shirt and casual trainers the Liverpudlian almost had the polished smart-casual brunch vibe down pat.

Meanwhile Nancy looked relaxed in a warm windcheater, tight gym leggings and trainers.
Perhaps the pair were enjoying an early meal for Paul's birthday.
While he might be greeting another birthday, the musical mastermind is still as busy as ever.
Earlier in the month, Paul had to cancel several dates in Japan and South Korea on his Out There world tour after falling ill with a mystery virus.
But the dedicated performer has turned a corner health-wise and will hit the road again on July 5 for the North American leg of his show.

'I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again. I’m feeling great but taking my docs' advice to take it easy for just a few more days.
'Look forward to seeing you all soon,' the singer said in a statement on his website at the time.
The Out There tour showcases an eclectic array of songs from Paul's solo career and his time in both the Beatles and Wings.

The avid vegetarian is also a passionate campaigner for his Meat Free Monday movement, which urges people to skip meat at the beginning of the week.
The campaign is backed by Paul's daughters with his first wife, the late Linda McCartney, Stella and Mary and has just celebrated its five year anniversary. 'Thank you to everyone who supports the campaign.
'Eating more fruit and veg, and less meat, is good for our health and good for the planet. With diet-related diseases on the rise, Meat Free Monday is more important now than ever,' Paul wrote on his website of the milestone on Monday.
