Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

men 10 oct

Here is a look at two smart gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (October 9).

Ansel Elgort: The young actor joined Kaitlyn Dever for the ‘Men, Women & Children’ London premiere. This is taking it up a level. Working a strong graphic-print look from Dior Homme, I love those black calfskin strapped derbies with black and white rubber soles which give this look the cool flourish it deserved. Very well played.

Jeremy Renner: The ‘Bourne Legacy’ actor joined Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the red carpet for the ‘Kill The Messenger’ New York screening wearing a more classic look from Dolce & Gabbana. The pinstriped midnight-blue three-piece suit with a petrol-blue tie is tailored to perfection to allow Jeremy to stand out in the most sophisticated way possible.

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney – ‘The Best Of Me’ LA Premiere

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney - 'The Best Of Me'  LA Premiere

James Marsden joined his beautiful co-star Michelle Monaghan on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Best Of Me’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Tuesday (October 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Bringing menswear back to the forefront, the actor makes us swoon in his Thom Sweeney notched-lapel cool-blue suit, which brings out those baby-blue eyes.

It’s not just the colour of the suit that should be admired, but also the sleek styling, consisting of a striped shirt, grey tie and Givenchy shoes.

While Eddie Redmayne is probably the front runner for best-dressed man of the year, I would say James should also be in consideration for his consistency and ability to always impress with something new.

The fellas were back, looking as fine as ever, serving up their suave style on the red carpet last night (October 7).

Luke Evans: The Welsh actor donned a well-tailored three-piece suit to the New York premiere for ‘Dracula Untold’. I’m glad his deep-olive suit isn’t checking the usual grey, black or navy boxes; however, I am missing his longer locks.

Joshua Jackson: The actor joined his boo, Diane Kruger, on the red carpet for ‘The Affair’ series premiere, like Luke stepping out of the box wearing a teal notched-lapel Ermenegildo Zegna suit with just a black tee shirt. His dressy-casual look, which I predict was styled by his missy, makes quite a contemporary impression.

David Gandy In Marks and Spencer – David Gandy For M&S Autograph Photocall

David Gandy In Marks and Spencer - David Gandy For M&S Autograph Photocall

David Gandy attended a photocall to launch his underwear collection for Marks and Spencer Autograph held at a central London M&S store on Thursday (September 18).

While I’m sad he didn’t opt to showcase the collection, the model looked devilishly handsome in his biscuit-coloured Marks & Spencer suit.

I think when it comes to suit wearing to perfection, only Eddie Redmayne and David Beckham give David a run for his money.

And it’s not just the fit of the suit which he always gets right; it’s the styling.

Here he opts for a navy tie and pocket square with dark brown lace-ups and a gold timepiece to round out his suit.

Dan Stevens In Thom Sweeney – ‘The Guest’ & ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ New York Premieres

If you thought Dan Stevens was going to disappear into obscurity following his departure from ‘Downton Abbey’, you couldn’t have been more wrong as the actor is so in demand he is currently promoting two of his latest projects.

‘The Guest’ New York Premiere: On Tuesday (September 16) he wore a Thom Sweeney grey windowpane-check double-breasted suit. What I love about double-breasted suits is that they are made for men, not boys. From its chest-accentuating, waist-slimming silhouette to its association with Wall Street power brokers and gangsters, double-breasted tailoring is uncompromisingly masculine. Opting to go sans tie, with tan Christian Louboutin ‘Trepeter’ flats and a white checked pocket square rounding out his look, he solidifies his best-dressed status.

‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ New York Premiere: Back on the red carpet for the second night in a row last night (September 17), the actor opted for a moody shade of midnight-blue, donning a three-piece Thom Sweeney suit, once again opting to go sans tie. Perhaps the look would’ve felt like something was missing had it not been for the contrasting button detailing on the shirt.

Both looks are impeccably tailored, fit to perfection and showcase that he’s capable of working several styles.

I have to go with the second look; I’m totally entranced by the colour, the sheen and the way it brings out his baby blues.

Which look do you favour?
