Ansel Elgort In Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci – ‘Baby Driver’ Sydney Premiere

Ansel Elgort joined Lily James for the premiere of ‘Baby Driver’ in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday (July 12).

Offering up a different variation on monochromatic suiting, the actor was dressed in a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Spring 2017 suit with red accent collar lapels and wide tuxedo stripes down the pants.

Fully committed to the look, he even wore red socks.

While Ansel can dress with the best in standard formal menswear, I love that he is not one to shy away from exploring alternate sartorial views that present interesting variations on the norm.

Conor McGregor In David August – Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor McGregor World Press Tour

The press conference for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor McGregor boxing match, held at the Staples Center on Tuesday (July 11), was always going to be a spicy affair with the usual trash talking, but Conor McGregor decided to take things further.

His custom made three-piece pinstripe David August suit gives off the impression of a dapper gent, but the woven navy wool fabric has a repeat pattern of the words ‘F**K YOU’ (see the close up here) creating an optical illusion of traditional pinstripes from afar.

Paired with custom crisp white shirt, pink tie and silk polka dot navy pocket square, the Irish mixed martial artist even stopped the press conference having seen himself on the big screen to say, “How’s this suit look? It’s a cracker”.

CEO David August Heil said, “Conor has been a longtime client and friend of ours and we’re deeply honored to be a part of this epic, historic story as it unfolds. With a force in sports and fashion like Conor, it makes our job exciting to create unique looks that enhances his natural confidence and power. He’s a disrupter in everything he does and we’re intoxicated by his passion and drive.”

Antonella Roccuzzo weds Lionel Messi in Rosa Clará

On Friday (June 30), wedding bells were ringing for Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi and his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo, who were married in the groom’s hometown of Rosario, Argentina.

Lionel’s Barcelona sports ties weren’t the only bit of Spain in the ceremony, as the bride wore a mermaid-style gown with a plunging, heart-shaped neckline from Spanish designer, Rosa Clará.

With allover delicate lace-embroidered flowers and a sweeping train, it merged sweetness with a more seductive quality.

As for the groom, he was dapper in a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure three-piece tuxedo in a rich, dark grey colour enlivened by a silver tie.

Lionel and Antonella’s sons, Thiago and Matteo, each took after their father in their Armani Junior custom-made, three-piece suits.

Tommy Dorfman FROW at Spring 2018 Menswear Fashion Week

Tommy Dorfman has been a noticeable fixture on the front row at Spring 2018 Menswear Fashion Week in Milan and Paris, attending a trio of shows where the young actor looked as if he could have stepped straight from the runway himself.

Fendi show: At Fendi, he paid homage to the brand with a schoolboy-meets-sporty edge. Successfully wearing this mauve zipper sweater, emblazoned with racing stripes, alongside army-green pinstripe trousers was no small feat. But, he does so incredibly seamlessly. I love the additional quirk of the ‘Green’ knapsack, with athletic shoes rounding out the look.

Cerruti show: Letting his shirt do the talking at Cerruti on Friday (June 23), this tee-and-shorts number got a style-forward upgrade with the statement printed backpack and flatform footwear that made menswear sandals seem quite alright—good, even.

Balmain show: Adding knee-high socks to a pair of quilted, buckle sandals, Tommy continued to push the directional envelope at Balmain the next day, Saturday (June 24). Of course, it was his hyper-embellished, studded and mesh tunic dress that commanded much of the attention. Yet, he wore it with a spirit of easy nonchalance.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

There were a number of men who made an impression at the 2017 BET Awards in LA. But, away from that event, there were more fellows who have made an impression on the red carpet.

Chadwick Boseman: First up, Chadwick scored a style slam dunk at the 2017 NBA Awards on Monday (June 26) in New York City. This Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2017 striped suit was a seasonal, refreshing alternative to the standard-issue colours of black, navy, and charcoal. Plus, I love that he skipped the tie on this sleek dress shirt.

Filipe Valle Costa: At the premiere of FX’s ‘Snowfall,’ on Monday (June 26) in LA, Filipe looked sharp in a David Hart Fall 2017 suit styled with Cesare Pacciotti shoes and a Rolex timepiece. The festive plaid did seem a bit heavy, but he lightened the mood with his unbuttoned, white dress shirt.

Miles Brown: I’m not sure it could get any more adorable than Miles who was also at the 2017 NBA Awards. With his custom TO Collection suit, paired with Florsheim shoes, he gets major style points. He wears bold plaid and a bow tie better than men three times his age.
