Menswear Midweek Round Up

Chris Hemsworth: For the 50th Anniversary Wool Awards in Sydney on Tuesday, the Australian actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna light-grey three-piece suit with notch lapels. He paired the well-cut suit with a white shirt, a matching patterned tie, and black leather boots. I prefer this finished look to his usual unbuttoned-shirt look.

Matthew McConaughey: After stepping out in a wildly perfect Vivienne Westwood MAN suit for the ‘Mud’ screening, Matthew returned to his usual brand in a Dolce & Gabbana classic black suit from the sartorial collection for an appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. His conservative notch-lapel suit was finished off with a white shirt and black lace-up shoes. I liked the multicoloured suit more, but this was the perfect casual look for a late show.

Brad Goreski: Opting for a loud red carpet look, Bravo’s Brad Goreski wore a Ferragamo yellow double-breasted suit from the Spring 2013 collection for the 24th GLAAD Media Awards in LA on Saturday. It’s incredibly bright and features just one set of buttons, making it even more difficult to pull off. Brad is zany enough for it, but I don’t think it fit as well as it could have. It did go well with the light-blue tab-collar shirt and the green-and-yellow tie, though.

Menswear Midweek Round Up 2

Ethan Hawke: The 42-year-old actor wore a Lanvin navy-blue-and-black two-button plaid suit with notch lapels to the premiere of his film ‘Before Midnight’ at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday. The suit seems to fit well and he wisely paired it with a light-blue shirt, but my favourite part of this outfit is the charcoal-grey Lanvin hat; it gives the whole look a fun kick. Also, I give him props on the killer moustache.

Michael Shannon: In a Calvin Klein grey two-button notch-lapel suit, Michael showed he cleans up well. He was at the LA premiere of his film ‘The Iceman’ in Hollywood on Monday. His suit, from the Spring 2013 collection, fit him nicely, though the sleeves of the jacket could have been a bit shorter to show off more shirt cuff. The orange pin-dot tie and colourful pocket square gave the look a welcome shot of zest.

Ryan Lochte: The Olympian wore an Ermenegildo Zegna chocolate-coloured suit, which isn’t an easy look to pull off but Ryan nails it by adding a patterned shirt and a matching tie. The details of a tie bar and a spread-collar shirt, and the decision to wear black shoes, make this all the better. He’s just lucky his pretty face distracts from the fact that his jacket sleeves are too short, but not that it’s too tight.
