Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Round Up

Harrison Ford: In celebration of being the cover star of the latest issue of Michigan Avenue Magazine, Harrison was in attendance for a party at Chicago Cut Steakhouse on Monday. Looking as good as ever, he donned a well-tailored navy suit with wide notch lapels. His outfit included a pale-blue shirt and a printed navy tie.

James McAvoy: For the London premiere of the film ‘Trance’, James was in attendance on the carpet sporting a thickening red beard. Besides the facial hair, James wore a Prada navy silk suit. The notch-lapel suit seemed to fit him well. He matched it with a sky-blue poplin-stretch shirt.

David Beckham: The British football superstar attended a press conference held at the Shijia Hutong Primary School in Beijing, China today, where he was unveiled at the special ambassador for Chinese football. Always looking dapper when it comes to formal wear, David wore a charcoal-grey notch-lapel suit. He paired it with a white pinstripe shirt, a light-grey tie, and a pair of black lace-ups. The superstar looked even more handsome while having a kick-about with the kids, only removing his jacket while he showcased his skills on the playground.

David Beckham’s H&M Bodywear TV Ad

H&M invited me to view their new ad to launch the David Beckham Bodywear collection, which was directed by Guy Ritchie at the Soho Hotel in London yesterday.

It was quite a fancy affair, with champagne, canapés and popcorn.

After the first viewing of the ad, the PR asked us if we wanted to watch the ad again; we all said yes for, erm, research purposes of course.

The ad shows David waving goodbye to his three sons (actors) in his dressing gown, which becomes caught in the door of the Range Rover.

He chases the Range Rover, jumping over hedges, which leaves him shirt-less, running through gardens, tennis courts and swimming through a pool which leaves him soaking wet.

Just when you think he is going to catch up with the car, it speeds off again and the ad ends with a coach full of tourists snapping the topless Becks before he continues to chase the car in his slippers.

The ad will air for the first time tonight in the UK on Channel 4 at 9.50pm.

The Beckhams In Burberry & Victoria Beckham – ‘Viva Forever’ Press Night

The Beckham family, who are back in the UK for the holidays, were out in London this evening for the ‘Viva Forever’ press night, held at The Piccadilly Theatre.

David, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz Beckham were all wearing Burberry Tailoring.

David wore a grey suit with an olive tie, while his mini-me’s look so very handsome in dark-hued suits, with eldest son Brooklyn opting to wear his look without a tie.

I love how Cruz’ suit is a few sizes too big. This is a look my brother always sported on the first day of school, before growing out of his uniform by Christmas.

Victoria Beckham was of course decked out in her own threads wearing white shirt from her Spring 2013 collection and black Isabel Marant pants with a rich maroon wool coat worn over her shoulders.

Her favourite Manolo Blahnik ‘BB’ black pumps completed her look.

I think this is the first time she has modified her signature pose.

David Beckham for H&M Bodywear Launch

Victoria Beckham wasn’t the only Beckham causing a buying frenzy in London this week.

David Beckham was in town to promote his David Beckham Bodywear for H&M collaboration on Wednesday.

The collection, which went on sale in store and online yesterday, features nine underwear styles for men with a focus on fit, function, comfort and design and comprising of briefs, boxers, vests, T-shirts, pyjamas and long johns.

Funny, then, that the majority of the people in the queue were women. I guess they queued for three hours to buy the bodywear for their sons, brothers and other halves.

The Beckham’s Head To London For The Royal Wedding

Yesterday the Beckham’s were spotted at LAX headed to London for tomorrow’s big wedding.

Victoria was in trademark black, but she delights me by carrying a pink ‘Victoria’ bag from her Spring 2011 collection.

We’ve seen Victoria carry her signature bag in black also.

I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you, but Victoria will be wearing a dress from her own collection to the wedding tomorrow.

It has been reported that she will accessorize with custom-made Christian Louboutin heels (6ins no doubt) and a Philip Treacy hat.

Do you remember when she wore a hat to Katie Holmes’ wedding?

It got more press than the bride and groom.

David will be wearing Ralph Lauren.
