Menswear 2 DecFrom movie premieres to the awards stage, the guys suited up over the past few days to hit the red carpet, impressing at every sartorial turn.

Orlando Bloom: Decked in a Lanvin Fall 2013 ensemble, Orlando attended ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere on Monday. Although his navy one-button tuxedo with black grosgrain shawl collar and white cotton dress shirt with French cuffs and antique silver cuff links were formal, his tie-less approach and black patent-leather, cap-toe sneakers kicked this look into more casual-cool territory.

Idris Elba: At the ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Paris premiere on Monday, Idris put his own spin on fifty shades of grey in a Dior Homme grey-checquered wool, notch-lapel two-button suit, paired with a black, cotton poplin shirt and a black silk tie. Grey loafers finished his outing; a nice departure from black.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The British actor strode out his dapper best at the ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Los Angeles premiere. His Dolce & Gabbana three-piece tuxedo featured a luxe, deep mahogany velvet blazer with contrasting shawl lapel, worn with a charcoal-grey vest and tux-stripe pants and a pert black bow tie.

Menswear 22 DecForest Whitaker: Handsomely traditional, the actor attended Monday’s 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City, dressed in a Calvin Klein Collection black suit and tie. His statement glasses added a trendy edge.

Dane DeHaan: Unlike Forest, Dane eschewed the standard black suit and added a fun, quirky punch on the red carpet at the Gotham Awards. His blue kid-mohair, two-button suit was popped with a blue-and-yellow plaid popeline shirt, navy kid-mohair tie, and black spazzolato fume loafers, all from the Prada Spring 2014 collection. He even made sure his socks were colourfully striped.

Michael B. Jordan: Also at the Gotham Awards, Michael walked an elegant line in a slim-fitting Calvin Klein Collection dark-grey tuxedo with contrasting black lapels, paired with a white dress shirt, black bow tie and black Christian Louboutin ‘Bruno Orlato’ loafers—the perfect look for accepting his Breakthrough Actor trophy.
