‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ London Premiere Menswear Round Up

GI JOE London premiere menswear

The much-anticipated sequel ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ had its London premiere at Empire Leicester Square on Monday evening.

Channing Tatum: For the carpet, Channing sported a Gucci charcoal notch-lapel Marseille suit with a blue dress shirt. He styled the suit with a blue-and-brown striped tie and black leather lace ups. I loved the tie, but it’s the creased shirt and long pants that bother me. His pants fit well at the Oscars when he wore Gucci last so this is a bit of a let down.

Byung-hun Lee: The South Korean actor ditched the suit and showed up in a cool, casual outfit. It consisted of a black leather motorcycle jacket, black denim pants, and a pair of black leather boots. Underneath the jacket, Byung-hun dressed up his outfit with a white shirt and a black tie. I like the look, and props to Byung-hun for knowing how clothes are meant to fit, but I don’t think it’s completely appropriate for a film premiere.

Dwayne Johnson: Formerly known as The Rock, the professional wrestler turned actor arrived on the carpet looking less than stellar, to put it nicely. His navy three-piece suit looked as if it was straight off the rack. No part of it fits the way it should.

D.J. Cotrona: Looking very dapper in a black notch lapel suit, D.J. donned my favourite look of the four. It’s tailored to perfection and the 32-year-old actor wore it well. He added a white pocket square, a white shirt, and a silver tie. My only gripe with the outfit is that I would have preferred a slimmer tie. Not a skinny tie, but a narrow tie.

    I’m a huge Dwayne Johnson fan so it’s no surprise that I think he looks okay here. I appreciate FC covering him.

    My favourite is D. J. Cotrona too. Channing still looks handsome with that creased shirt and the long pants in my eyes though.

    I think Channing looks fantastic. It’s a relaxed look. Pants and all. And for his size, Duane looks great, too. I don’t have many issues with the fit.

    D.J. Cotrona looks fantastic. I like Byung hun-Lee’s look, but would have preferred it at a photocall not a premiere.

    I only like D.J. Cotrona look.

      Yup, and I wish his tie was narrower. Still the best.

    The tie could’ve been a bit narrower, agreed, but D.J. Cotrona is easily the best of the bunch.
