Independent Spirit Awards Menswear Round Up

Independent Spirit Awards

While many of the men in attendance at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday opted for the usual dark suits, several of the actors celebrated the warm temperatures with light colours. The event was held in Santa Monica, California.

Bradley Cooper: Now here’s something you don’t see much of anymore. Bradley is wearing an Armani three-button, grey suit. He matched his suit with a tan waistcoat, a white shirt and distressed brown shoes. I like the colour combination in the look, but he doesn’t look very polished. His pants are too long and those shoes don’t do his suit justice.

Andy Samberg: As the host of the show Andy looked incredibly dapper in a perfectly tailored tuxedo that featured a green, shawl lapel jacket. Under the tux, Andy wore a white French cuff shirt, black studs and matching cuff links. He styled his it all with a black bow tie, a white pocket square, a white flower on his lapel and Bruno Magli shoes.

Matthew McConaughey: Nominated for his role as the lead in ‘Killer Joe,’ Matthew showed off his trim body in a more casual outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. He wore a charcoal coloured waistcoat with matching pants and a striped shirt. The highlight of Matthew’s getup was the pop of colour from his Tod’s blue shoes. He also accessorized with a stylish sunglasses and a great timepiece on his wrist.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Midweek round up

Chris Hemsworth: At the 2013 Foxtel Launch at Fox Studios in Sydney on Wednesday, the 29-year-old actor sported an Ermenegildo Zegna grey peak-lapel suit. He also added a white pocket square to match his unbuttoned white shirt. Chris’s suit was nicely tailored to show off his muscular frame, and usually I would prefer to have one more button done up, but he makes it work with ease.

James Franco: I like that James Franco is experimenting with suits. On his last outing he wore a rich brown-and-blue windowpane suit. For the ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Japan premiere he stood alongside the gorgeous Rachel Weisz wearing a jade-green Gucci suit. Styling the suit with a more familiar white dress shirt, black tie and leather lace ups, I kinda wish the tie and shoes had been in a different colour.

James D’Arcy: The English actor attended a gala screening of ‘Cloud Atlas’, which he starred in, at the Curzon Mayfair in London on Monday. To the screening, James wore all Prada; his Prada navy tela-mohair suit was matched with a blue-and-white striped shirt. James styled it with a bordeaux micro-dot tie and black brushed-leather lace-up shoes for a dashing look.

Cameron Silver In Joseph Abboud & Andrea Pompilio

A Week In Cameron Silver's Closet

Menswear mogul and owner of Decades in Los Angeles Cameron Silver was seen sporting two very different looks on Tuesday.

The first came at an event where Gemfields and W Magazine celebrated the launch of Gemfields’ new brand ambassador, Mila Kunis, at Soho House in West Hollywood.

At the first event, Cameron sported a Joseph Abboud grey windowpane suit with a Brook Brothers shirt, which is very conservative for Cameron.  If you don’t believe me, just see what he wore to the ‘Trevor Live’ event and the 2012 Met Gala.

To make his outfit pop, Cameron added a Gucci leopard-print hat, a Charvet multi-coloured tie, and Alexis Mabille purple suede shoes.

The second look was at an event in Los Angeles, celebrating Elizabeth Taylor’s magnificent collection of BVLGARI jewelry.

Cameron was in head-to-toe Andrea Pompilio with a Fendi coat.  It was all accented with his now-blonde hair.  In the past year, his hair colour has changed from black to silver to blonde.

His experience in menswear has led to a new job: Cameron will be seen on his new show, ‘Dukes of Melrose’, which premieres March 6 at 10:30 ET on Bravo.

2013 Brit Awards Menswear Round Up

Men Brits

On Wednesday, the Brit Awards 2013 was held at the O2 Arena in London. It was an impressive showing for menswear as many of the suits and tuxedos featured different colours and details. The best part was how many of those suits fit perfectly; English gents understand the importance of slim tailoring.

Ed Sheeran: The popular 22-year-old English singer once again looked very unpolished while wearing a Burberry navy suit. At the Grammys, Ed attempted to wear sneakers with his ill-fitted Burberry tuxedo. This time he chose much better sneakers, but his suit fits even worse than it did last time. Not only are his sleeves touching his knuckles, but his pants also look to be sitting quite low on his waist. Maybe that explains why they are bunching up at his ankles.

Louis Smith: This is my favorite suit out of the bunch. Louis sported a beautiful double-breasted Sand suit with peak lapels. He clearly has a great body, which comes with being an Olympic gymnast, and this suit accentuates that. Along with his suit, Louis wore a white Staunton Moods shirt with a classic black bow tie. His shoes also featured gold decals on them, but it didn’t take away from his loud suit.

Robbie Williams: The English singer-songwriter took a risk, wearing a purple one-button shawl-lapel tuxedo. He matched his deep-purple colour with a white shirt, a black skinny tie, and a well-folded pocket square. His risk certainly paid off.

Calvin Harris: Looking rather sharp in a midnight-navy suit, the Scottish DJ turned some heads on the red carpet. Under his notch-lapel jacket was a white semi-spread-collar shirt. A black skinny tie and just the right amount of blonde scruff polished off Calvin’s look.

Justin Timberlake Wears Two Tom Ford Suits To The 2013 Brit Awards

Justin Timberlake In Tom Ford Brit Awards

After taking his front row seat at the Tom Ford Fall 2013 presentation earlier this week, Justin Timberlake attended the 2013 Brit Awards in London on Wednesday evening, looking very dapper wearing another Tom Ford suit.

It looked like he understands the key to any suit, which is perfect tailoring, when he selected this grey, peak-lapel suit.

The look fit him just right. The jacket featured a ticket pocket and a silver silk pocket square.  To finish off his look, Justin wore a white shirt, a black knit tie, and black lace-up shoes.

This Tom Ford outfit isn’t as flashy as what he wore to the Grammys or as bold as what he wore to London Fashion Week, but it looks fantastic.

He was saving bold and flashy for the performance, for which he donned yet another Tom Ford suit.

The black glossy garbardine shawl-collar tuxedo jacket was styled with a bow tie, white dress shirt, and pants with a satin trim, accented with a cummerbund.

He wore the black-and-white tap shoes he wore to the Grammys.
