Ko Chen-Tung In Gucci – ‘Together’ Beijing Premiere

Ko Chen-Tung In Gucci - ‘Together’ Beijing Premiere

Some suits are so loud and obnoxious that the men wearing them seem like lowly attention seekers. But some men can exude confidence in a way that makes wearing such a suit possible. Ko Chen-Tung is one of those men.

Chen-Tung attended the Beijing premiere of his new film ‘Together’ on Monday wearing this Gucci Spring 2013 charcoal-and-yellow striped suit alongside co-star Angelababy

With his slim-fit, double-breasted number, the actor seems to be wearing the same Gucci loafers as the runway model.

If menswear didn’t take risks, we would see black, gray and navy everywhere.

Wearing this was a brave act, and who better to try it than one of Taiwan’s hottest young actor/singers?

Topped off with mahogany-coloured buttons, peak lapels, and a wisely buttoned-up shirt, this look hovers on the right side of the line between eccentric and crazy. This getup certainly puts Chen-Tung on the map and I applaud him for it.

Chen-Tung can do strait laced. Back in November, he attended the opening of a new Gucci store in Taipei, Taiwan wearing a much more conservative Gucci navy windowpane suit.

    Glad to see more eye catching menswear suits but he is not working this.

      Exactly. This bold getup is not working for him and he is not working it.

        I agree with both of you.

    The pants are too tight for me. But I think he’s very young, on somebody older it would be worse.

    BDOTW. Boom!

    Guh. AND THIS. This just goes to show that in no way does menswear need to be boring and repetitive!

    Hmmmm.
    Let’s just say that my personal taste in menswear runs more toward the “strait-laced,” “boring,” and “repetitive!” ;)

    Taking risks is good but not to the point when it´s starting to look this bad and unappealing. I applaud to him but I don´t think he pulls it off. He looks like a shy little boy with a slightly girly figure in this getup. I imagine someone like Gosling rocking it in a more manly confident manner. Sorry, but this looks really bad to me.

      In Asia we love masculine men but we also a soft corner for girly guys…..we call them flower boys.

      you said it Nat39 agree 100%

    Bad design. Looks like a night suit!

    i only hope ryan gosling wears this and manages to make it look good.

    I think he looks cool in this, his nonchalant manner makes it more appealing. Thankful for some guys pushing the envelope in menswear.

    It’s too out there and looks like a school uniform on him. Maybe if he’s paired the blazer with a solid trouser and exuded more confidence it would have been improved.

    Surprisingly, I really like this. I do love interesting menswear.
