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

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?

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Menswear Roundup

GQ Men1

Even though the girls grabbed plenty of stares at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2), the evening was about the guys, after all. Many in the handsome bunch were naturally dressed to impress.

Douglas Booth: Rather appropriately attired in a bespoke BOSS Made to Measure suit to accept his Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man award, the actor didn’t leave anyone guessing as to his sartorial cred. He was as charming as ever in this navy-blue number. The perfect bow tie was my favourite part—the icing on the cake.

Dan Stevens: The British actor and one of the evening’s presenters wore a Dior Homme Prussian blue slim, shawl-collar tuxedo with a white cotton wing-tip tuxedo shirt and black patent leather derbies. The colour of the suit was obviously selected to bring out his intense baby-blue gaze, which helped detract from the fact that the black satin bow tie was rather oversized.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Actor of the Year winner took a monochromatic approach in an all-black three-piece Spencer Hart suit and tie. He could have done better for his big night.

Menswear Red Carpet Weekend Roundup

Menswear round up

From London to Los Angeles, here’s a look at the men who made an impression over the weekend.

Dan Stevens: The British actor stepped out at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday night, wearing a dashing black Burberry tux and bow tie. It doesn’t get much more dashing than that.

Andrew Garfield: The actor attended the ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ photocall at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver Studios on Saturday alongside Emma Stone. Like his lovely costar, he also showed Band of Outsiders some love, wearing one of the label’s khaki-coloured jackets. He paired his casual outerwear choice with a blue-and-red plaid shirt, dark denim, and black loafers.

Brad Pitt: The actor wore a black tux and matching bow tie by Saint Laurent, joining his wife-to-be Angelina Jolie and their son Maddox on the red carpet at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards on Saturday evening.

Let’s hear it for the boys once again.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper, who turned 25 today, joined a host of lovely ladies and Idris Elba on the red carpet for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards on Tuesday. He was, of course, wearing his favourite brand Dolce & Gabbana, wearing a three-piece suit including a velvet blazer and vest which had a festive cheer to it. The look packed in plenty of his signatures: bow tie, black-frame glasses, cropped trousers and loafers.

Zachary Quinto: For the Guggenheim International Gala, the ‘Star Trek’ actor donned a Dior Homme grey wool micro-check two-button small-notch-lapel blazer styled with a white cotton button-down shirt, washed ‘Second Round’ Dior Homme denim jeans, and black leather derbies. The blazer confuses me here.

Will Forte: The handsome actor took to the red carpet in New York City last night wearing a grey Simon Spurr suit with a teal-blue tie for the ‘Nebraska’ screening at the Paris Theater.

Dan Stevens: The British actor also attended the Guggenheim International Gala, sporting a dressed-down look. The difference is his look has considerably more finesse than Zachary’s.

This week, the guys kept on giving us their sartorial best at several recent movie premieres, with looks ranging from informal to a bit more fancy.

Justin Timberlake: Rocking a side of scruff, the ‘Suit & Tie’ singer-actor attended the ‘Runner Runner’ premiere at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday evening. He suited up in a formal midnight-blue tux with black lapels that was worn tie-less with a crisp white dress shirt by Saint Laurent.

Chris Hemsworth: After attending the Rome premiere of ‘Rush The Movie,’ Chris hit up the film’s New York City screening at Chelsea Clearview Cinema on Wednesday. Donning a Dolce & Gabbana monochromatic black suit and tie-less button-down, Chris maintained a casual-cool vibe that let his stare rather than his style do most of the talking.

Ben Affleck: Ben was also on the red carpet with Justin at the ‘Runner Runner’ premiere, where the actor was traditionally handsome in a dark suit, popped with a light grey tie and a purple pocket square.

Dan Stevens: Joining Chris at the ‘Rush The Movie’ New York screening, Dan showed some biker-boy edge with a black leather embossed motorcycle jacket, paired with a white T-shirt and grey jeans.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Benedict Cumberbatch: Benedict attended ‘The Fifth Estate’ premiere during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada yesterday evening joining co-stars Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten. The handsome actor, who can play a baddie like no other, looked very debonair in his classic Dolce & Gabbana peaked-lapel tuxedo with a white shirt accented with black pin buttons and a smart bow tie. Does this make you swoon?

Tom Hiddleston: Joining co-star Mia Wasikowska, Tom attended the ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ premiere wearing a slick black double-breasted Giorgio Armani suit with a velvet shawl collar and satin black tie.

Dan Stevens: Fresh from his ‘Most Stylist’ GQ Man of the Year Award, Dan opted for something different going blue and tieless while attending the premiere of ‘The Fifth Estate’, wearing a blue wool two-button notch lapel suit, black cotton dress shirt and black lace-up leather shoes from the Fall 2013 Calvin Klein Collection.

Daniel Brühl: The actor added a maroon patterned tie to his charcoal grey notched lapel Emporio Armani suit to liven things up while also attending the premiere of ‘The Fifth Estate’.

Even though I love it when guys wear suits in colours other than black or grey. I can’t decide who I love more between Benedict and Tom in their classic tuxedos.
