John Krasinski doesn't need a woman who's well versed in the latest fashions. In fact, he says, a girl in a cardigan would do just fine.

Asked by August's Glamour whether he'd be amenable to dating "a normal girl" like Pam, his Office crush, Krasinski, 27, replies: "Yes, please! It's not about celebrity or not. It's all about, do you have that 'girl in a cardigan' in you. You gotta have that."

A woman with a relaxed sense of style would be a good match for the 27-year-old Newton, Mass., native, who told PEOPLE in 2005 that he doesn't worry much about his own wardrobe: "My main focus is to always try to be myself first, and then, hey, if I wear a cool jacket, that's a bonus."

The License to Wed star, one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive, also tells Glamour that he doesn't feel too much pressure to act like his charmingly wry Office character, Jim – mostly because, well, it sort of comes naturally.

"I would say I have a mellow way about me and a spontaneity that is similar to Jim's," he says.

Krasinski, who has dated his Office costar Rashida Jones, is currently working on his feature film writing and directing debut, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. He also appears in George Clooney's upcoming football film Leatherheads, due out in December.
