2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.

Esquire’s Annual Maverick’s Of Hollywood

Esquire’s Annual Maverick’s Of Hollywood was held on Tuesday (February 20) in LA, celebrating 23 women and men who are taking creative risks and making bold, innovative work in Hollywood.

Angela Sarafyan: Earlier in the day, Angela had us seeing red—and she continued working the striking colour here. However, the distinct lingerie mood and sheer elements of this Milly look will no doubt land as successfully as her prior entrance did. Had the skirt been lightly lined, I think we’d all be on board.

Donald Glover: I love a good statement jacket, and that was never more true than in this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 heart motif letterman’s jacket that didn’t skimp on playfulness. I do wish he had paired it with something less formally traditional than pleated trousers.

Lydia Hearst: This Fausto Puglisi Fall 2017 look is a tough one to take off the runway, given its experimental edge. As the coat was already halfway off her shoulders, the overall ensemble may have presented as slightly less haphazard had she just removed it. Read More…

‘Black Panther’ World Premiere Menswear Roundup

There were plenty of men in the mix at the star-studded world premiere of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

Chadwick Boseman: He plays the title character in the film, and his Emporio Armani Spring 2018 look was indeed royal. I love the relaxed-regal approach of the double-breasted metallic floral jacket styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Cyprien’ boots’ and David Yurman accessories.

Donald Glover: Go bold or go home. Leave it to Donald to positively command an orange power suit. This stylized Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 design was loud and proud in all the right ways—from the panther-esque printed shirt, to the monogrammed, embroidered badge with his initials on the jacket, and right down to the slipper shoes.

Daniel Kaluuya: I like that Daniel wore a traditional Ugandan kanzu to the red carpet, styling the formalwear with a burgundy Burberry Soho blazer, Christian Louboutin loafers, and David Yurman accessories.

2018 Grammy Awards Menswear Roundup

The men brought their fashion game to the 60th anniversary of the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

Zayn Malik: Zayn was dressed to the nines in this mauve Richard James Spring 2018 suit. It was an unexpected hue that I loved on the singer, especially with his graphic twist on the white rose and his patterned socks.

John Legend:
The singer cut a handsome profile in this Burberry double-breasted tuxedo styled with Chopard cufflinks. I liked this sleek midnight-blue deviation from the standard black tux.

Neyo: The rapper was styling and profiling in a Grayscale suit that was boldly striking by virtue of its goldenrod, velvet jacket in which the white #TimesUp rose was the perfect counterpart.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men have been making the rounds over the past few days, with the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards, premieres, and more all providing reason for them to hit the red carpet.

Matt Bomer: An army-green suit is not one we see on the daily. So, this Todd Snyder ensemble at the CFDA Fashion Awards really caught my eye—especially with the contrasting, tuxedo racing stripes down the side. It was a clever juxtaposition of formal-wear with a sportier vibe in the cropped pants and socks-less loafers. But, I do wish the pants had been pressed.

Tom Cruise: Tom joined Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis for the premiere of ‘The Mummy’ in Mexico City, where he wore an Ermenegildo Zegna Made to Measure three-piece suit. Sure, he looked handsome. But, with a Made to Measure suit, I would have expected a more precise, polished fit as the fabric seemed to crease and pull at various places here.

Donald Glover: Donald was at the Atlanta For Your Consideration screening in New York City, where he wore a Gucci ‘Donald Duck’ cardigan for our consideration. I actually found myself liking the playful, cartoonish spirit. I would have opted for black pants or denim jeans as opposed to these dark navy trousers as they seemed to be the odd man out.
