FastAndFurious 6 Men

The male stars of ‘Fast & Furious 6’ also gathered at Empire Leicester Square in London on Tuesday for the film’s world premiere.

Paul Walker: Keeping it simple, but taking a risk with a one-button jacket, Paul sported a Giorgio Armani L.A.-cut navy suit. His wool-silk-blend suit featured a peak-lapel jacket that fit nicely, though his shirt cuffs should be visible when his arms hang down. He paired it with a white cotton shirt and a purple silk tie. This would have made for a great look had his pants been a few inches shorter.

Luke Evans: With my favourite look of the bunch, Luke went all out, wearing a Thom Sweeney black-and-white bespoke three-piece suit. His look, which fit beautifully, was enhanced by numerous details, such as a horseshoe waistcoat, pleated trousers, and an off-colour pocket square. He finished it off with a white shirt and an attention-grabbing burgundy tie.

Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges: In a Giorgio Armani grey-check wool trader suit, Chris had a suave look for the premiere, but it was subdued by poor choices. The suit doesn’t fit terribly, though it could have been a bit slimmer in the leg, but the decision to wear a tie and pocket square that are the same colour as the suit held him back. The brown shoes and brown belt were great, however.

Met Men

To celebrate the new ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday, some of the biggest celebs walked down the red carpet. In honour of the exhibit, many of the men chose to give their formal looks a bit of punk inspiration, which made for an exciting menswear event.

Eddie Redmayne: The red carpet phenom added another beautiful look to his collection, wearing a Dior Homme navy-blue wool tuxedo with black grosgrain peak lapels. As always, it fit just right. To finish it off, Eddie added a white cotton shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white pocket square, and black patent-leather derbies.

Frank Ocean: In a Givenchy black tuxedo, Frank looked incredibly dapper for the event. His two-button notch-lapel tux fit well and he paired it classically with a white shirt and black bow tie. To give the outfit a little kick of punk, Frank opted for shoes with silver studs going around the soles – a very cool addition.

Joshua Jackson: I’ve never been OK with wearing a red tie to a red carpet event. It’s cheesy. I don’t like that aspect of his outfit, but I love the beige linen lapels on his Dior Homme black suit. Even though it’s a small detail on his jacket, it made for a stylish look. Joshua topped it off with a white cotton shirt and a Chanel ‘J12 Black Matte Ceramic’ watch.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Premiere

For the German premiere of the much-anticipated ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, held in Berlin on Monday, three of the male stars and director J.J. Abrams, along with Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana, arrived in very different looks. They showed the know how to style a suit, but only two of them nailed the fit.

Simon Pegg: The British actor went with a grey suit with notch lapels over a classic white shirt. The jacket fits well, but the pants do not. He wisely finished it all off with a burgundy slim tie and a pink silk pocket square.

Zachary Quinto: Known to be a great dresser, Zachary added to his impressive menswear résumé with a perfectly cut navy suit with shawl lapels over a pale blue shirt. The details made him stand out. Along with the suit, he added a wild-patterned black-and-white tie and a plaid pocket square. None of the colours were identical, giving him more of a statement look and less of a uniformed look.

Chris Pine: He opted for a Ralph Lauren brown checked suit with notch lapels similar to one he wore in November at ‘The Rise of the Guardians’ premiere. It was a fantastic looking suit that was incredibly eye-catching, but his pants needed to fit more like Zachary’s. The fit of the jacket is great and the addition of the wide tie (and the manly beard) gave him a more powerful look. I love the decision to wear the contrast-collar shirt as well.

J.J. Abrams: The director has very much been keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ so to speak, as his classic suits and stand-out ties have been favoured just as much as the cast of this movie.

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 4 april

Robert Downey Jr.: The ‘Iron Man 3′ promo tour was kick started with a press conference at the Conrad Hotel in South Korea on Thursday, for which Robert went monochromatic. Always doing things differently, he opted for a light-grey Ferragamo jacket featuring white trim on the edges, and too-long grey pants. I love that he wore sneakers with this look, which stays true to his quirky style, but I’ve never been on board with glitzy sneakers.

Gerard Butler: For the London premiere for ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, Gerard looked his usual dapper self clad in a grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with peak lapels. I like the simplicity of the look, with a grey tie that matches his suit and a classic white shirt, but the pants have too much break.

Aaron Eckhart: In a well-tailored navy suit, Aaron cleaned up handsomely when he joined his ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ co-star on the red carpet yesterday evening. Going with all blue, he matched the notch-lapel suit with a light-blue shirt and a blue tie. I love the all-blue look here on Aaron. Props for wearing pants that fit perfectly.

Empire Awards Mens 1

The 2013 Jameson Empire Awards were held at Grosvenor House on Sunday in London. Many of the men teetered on the line between formal and casual in classic black and grey suits, while a select few chose to be a bit flashier with checked suits.

Jonathan Ross: The TV presenter known for his sharp suits kept things fairly casual on this occasion. He wore black jeans and a black shirt with a grey Thom Browne whale-patterned blazer.

Daniel Radcliffe: The young British actor didn’t just win the Empire Hero Award, but he did it looking incredibly smooth. Daniel showed at the Independent Spirit Awards that he knows exactly how his suit should fit, and this was another perfect example. He wore a Spencer Hart black suit with skinny lapels over a white shirt. My favourite part of it, besides the impeccable fit, was that he made it more casual by adding a black knit tie, as opposed to a more formal silk one.

Tom Hiddleston: Changing it up with patterns, Tom opted for an Emporio Armani blue check ‘David’ line suit and a pale-blue shirt. The blue colours of the suit, shirt and tie made for a great look on Tom, but I wish his pants were just a bit shorter.

Sam Claflin: For a head-turning look, Sam wore an Alexander McQueen charcoal-grey checked suit from the Spring 2013 collection. Everything fit well and the suit had a good pattern. He also accessorized with a white pocket square, a red tie, and a tie bar. My favourite part of his outfit, though, was those black leather double-monk-strap shoes.

‘David Bowie Is’ Exhibition Private Viewing Red Carpet Round Up Menswear

The Victoria & Albert Museum, in partnership with Gucci and Sennheiser, attracted various celebrities with its ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition on Wednesday. We’ve seen the ladies, including the fabulous Tilda Swinton, so now here is a look at all the handsome guys who attended the event.

Douglas Booth: The English actor arrived in a Gucci Heritage navy peak-lapel suit. He paired the suit with a classic white dress shirt. The suit looked fantastic and fit perfectly. Douglas’ shoes were a little wilder: he sported studded black leather horsebit loafers. The choice of shoes may not be favoured with such a classic suit, but since it was an exhibition devoted to David Bowie, it seems appropriate.

Tara Ferry: In the brightest suit of the four, Tara donned a Gucci Spring 2013 sapphire-dyed three-piece suit. His twill suit also featured a printed lining and buttons of different colours. He matched his suit with a white shirt with metal details, a blue polka-dot silk tie, and a white leather belt.

The most noticeable part of this outfit is those shoes: he coordinated his shoes with his buttons. Tara is wearing one black leather horsebit loafer and one white loafer. That is just too much for me. He should have stuck with the white ones – they are more David Bowie-esqe.

Mr. Hudson: The English singer sported an eye-catching Gucci ink jersey double-breasted suit from the Spring 2013 collection. It’s very similar (colourwise) to the suit worn by Ko Chen-Tung in Beijing. Mr. Hudson styled his suit with a black crewneck T-shirt and black leather brogue lace-up shoes. His suit fit just the way it should and he styled it well.

Nick Grimshaw: Not only did Nick show off his pink hair colour, he wore an awesome Gucci Spring light-blue double-breasted suit. It’s definitely a suit I could see David Bowie wearing. Under the well-tailored suit, Nick opted to follow the spring floral trend with a Resort 2013 cotton shirt. He finished it all off with a pair of Converse shoes. This was my favourite look because it screams “David Bowie”, but I wish he had fastened the top button of his jacket.

The ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition runs from 23 March – 11 August 2013 at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Go to www.vam.ac.uk for more info.
