    Synonyms for "bookishly handsome"

    Dear teachers

    From prevoius post (link at the bottom), I understand that "bookishly handsome" is not a common use. So in the following sentence, any synonyms your recommend to supersede "bookishly handsome"?

    "Sitting in the passenger seat of the red Toyota Corolla, the 45-year-old, bookishly handsome investment manager momentarily gapes at the video camera that the driver of the car is pointing at his face."

    Please advise.
