Alden Ehrenreich In Albert Hammond Jr. for Confederacy – ‘Beautiful Creatures’ LA Premiere

Alden Ehrenreich In Albert Hammond Jr for Confederacy - ‘Beautiful Creatures’ LA Premiere

Alden Ehrenreich tested out an up-and-coming colour trend at the LA premiere of ‘Beautiful Creatures’, held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday evening in Hollywood.

The handsome actor showed up in an Albert Hammond Jr. burgundy suit, which was uniquely decked out.

Not only did his notch lapel jacket feature a ticket pocket and higher-than-usual buttons, but it also had a military-inspired strap across the back just above the centre vent. He accented his suit with a brown skinny tie, matching oxford shoes, and a white shirt.

The burgundy colour of this suit looked good, but I thought the extra pieces on the suit took away from it.

Ticket pockets are splendid additions, but the oversized flaps over the three pockets are a bit distracting. The military-style strap across the back is bothersome, as well. It gives the illusion of his waist looking wider than it actually is.

Risks are great when experimenting with suits, but some work better than others. This one didn’t turn out perfectly, but he still looks sharp thanks to good tailoring and a beautiful colour.

This suit was actually worn by Ryan Gosling in ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’ But lets face it, Ryan wore it better because, well, he wears everything better than everyone.

Eddie Redmayne In Topman – ‘Les Miserables’ Paris Premiere

Eddie Redmayne In Topman - 'Les Miserables' Paris Premiere

It seems every time Eddie Redmayne shows his face on a red carpet he tries to one-up himself.

He did it again on Wednesday while at the Paris premiere of ‘Les Miserables’ as part of the Avenue Du Cinema Festival, alongside co-star Anne Hathaway.

For this occasion, Eddie suited up in a camel multi-fleck Topman suit and a herringbone skinny tie.

To complete the ensemble, he added a pocket square, marbled brown shoes, and a light-blue shirt with a skinny collar. Wearing skinny lapels, a skinny collar and a skinny tie shows that Eddie understands the ratios.

As he’s shown lately, Eddie looks like one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood.

These cold weather fabrics are bulky so when it’s tailored it must be snug to the body, and this suit is tailored perfectly.

Instead of a BDOTW menswear poll, it should be renamed the Eddie Redmayne poll.


You can buy Eddie’s Topman suit from Topman US and Topman UK.

Riz Ahmed In Dolce & Gabbana – London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Riz Ahmed In Dolce & Gabbana - London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Riz Ahmed was clad in a rather unique outfit at the London Evening Standard Film Awards on Monday.

The British star was nominated, along with 12 others, in the ‘Best Actor’ category for his roles in ‘Trishna,’ ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist,’ and ‘Ill Manors.’

At the event, Riz looked dapper above the waist wearing a Dolce & Gabbana black tuxedo jacket with satin peak lapels. He paired it with a fully buttoned white shirt with black studs, no tie, and what seems to be a pin dot scarf beneath his jacket.

Below the waist, however, Riz attempted—and failed—at a “manpris” (men’s capris) look.

His baggy pants ended about five inches above his ankles, making him appear much shorter than his listed 5 feet, 8 inches.

Not only that, but it’s too cold in London to be wearing manpris.

The 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon Menswear Round Up

The 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon Menswear Round Up
At the annual Oscar nominees luncheon on Monday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the A-list men flaunted a trend – casual suits. The nominee luncheon is a less formal, more fun-spirited event and it showed, as many in attendance decided to go without a tie.

Hugh Jackman: The Best Actor nominee for ‘Les Miserables’ donned a well-tailored black Lanvin suit. His jacket was snug around the waist, as it should be, and his pants had little break, if any. Hugh’s jacket featured notch lapels but no pocket square, which would have added a little more kick to his perfectly-fitted outfit. Hugh previously wore similar grey Lanvin suits to both the ‘Les Miserables’ London premiere and the AFI Awards.

Ben Affleck: He and his film ‘Argo’ have not only gained praise from numerous critics, but they have also received several awards. Ben looked like a serious contender, wearing a grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with a peak-lapel jacket. His pants, which seemed a bit long, actually worked well considering the casual atmosphere. His unbuttoned white shirt and black silk pocket square accented nicely with his black shoes. Ben also wore Dolce & Gabbana to the 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival this past Friday.

Bradley Cooper: Fellow Best Actor nominee, Bradley Cooper – for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ – wore a sleek grey Gucci suit with dark-brown oxford shoes. The actor followed suit with no tie, but refined his look with a slicked-back hairdo. Bradley was seen in November wearing a slim-fit light-grey plaid Gucci suit to the Los Angeles premiere of Silver Linings Playbook.

Hugh, Ben and Bradley will be seen again, most likely wearing ties, at the 85th Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California on February 24.

Eddie Redmayne In Tom Ford – London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Eddie Redmayne In Tom Ford - London Evening Standard British Film Awards

Eddie Redmayne continued his current streak of impeccable style yesterday evening at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards in London, where he was nominated in the ‘Best Actor’ category for ‘Les Miserables.’

For this event, the British actor wore a Tom Ford charcoal suit from the Spring 2013 collection.

His English-tailored jacket featured peak lapels and a ticket pocket. Eddie matched his suit with a silver knit tie, and a silver pocket square.

The 31-year-old actor has proven multiple times in the last two months that he can wear just about anything and look great. This is no different.

At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Virtuoso Award Ceremony, held in Santa Barbara, California, Redmayne was seen in a Tom Ford blue suit. Since the premiere of ‘Les Miserables,’ he has sported suits designed by Burberry, Hugo Boss and Tom Ford.

Bruce Willis In Dior Homme & Jai Courtney In Ermenegildo Zegna – ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ Event

Bruce Willis In Dior Homme & Jia Courtney In Ermenegildo Zenga - 'A Good Day to Die Hard' Event

To celebrate 25 years of ‘Die Hard’ franchise, Bruce Willis, along with ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ costar, Jai Courtney, attended a dedication event in Century City California on Thursday.

Bruce Willis: The face of the ‘Die Hard’ franchise donned a Dior Homme grey wool suit with peak lapels, matched with a silver skinny tie. Unfortunately for Willis, his skinny tie looks extra skinny next to his forward-point collar, and his pants were made for someone four inches taller.

Jai Courtney: His co-star on the other hand, looks exquisite in a perfectly-tailored Ermenegildo Zegna blue suit, paired with caramel-coloured shoes, a pocket square and an English spread collar shirt. Plus, his pindot tie adds some welcomed pattern to an eye-catching ensemble.

The two action stars can be seen taking up their roles as John McClane and John McClane Jr., respectively, in the franchise’s fifth installment, which will be released in theaters on Valentine’s Day.
