Ben Affleck In Gucci – 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Ben Affleck In Gucci - 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Ben Affleck joined many stars on the red carpet at the Palm Springs Convention Center for the 24th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival in California on Friday.

Dressed in a sleek black Gucci suit featuring glossy satin accents along the lapels and pockets, the ‘Argo’ actor pulled the look together with a classic bowtie.

I think Ben may have just missed the mark here. The pants bunch around the ankle and fit a little too low on the waist.

He did score a homerun, however, with his grooming. I love his slightly salted beard and his loose comb-over hairstyle.

    The suit is a bit sloppy, the piping-edged blazer is tough to pull off and the pants aren’t right. Also, one shouldn’t see a gap of white shirt above the waistline. However, he is pulling off the beard.

    The fit seems off but he looks so attractive here.

      That’s true.

    Shame about the loose trousers because he looks handsome with that beard.

    Not sharp and sleek enough, the fit is off and I don’t find his beard appealing.

    He looks sloppy. Don’t like anything.

    I thought hell would freeze over before I like a Ben Affleck look, but this is really working for me. the grooming makes me forgive these pants!

    to give Ben credit, this is EXACTLY how I wear formal clothing. I do not like formal clothing in general, so my compromise is to wear it looser, lower to make it more me. It’s not for everybody, but it is purposeful and, I think, adds personality and a bit of edge.

    I love the men’s fashion posts on this blog. It’s the kind of organic, user-driven growth that makes blog great and enduring. Love this whole look on Ben, from the suit to the grooming. I’m so happy for his comeback! A different Jen, a different life.

    I recognized the suit: Tom Hiddleston wore the same one to the Avengers London premiere in April 2012. This was the best full length photo I could link to (menswear edition of who wore it better)?:
