Menswear Weekend Roundup

Menswear1

Over the weekend, a handful of men were out and about in a range of eclectic and colourful ensembles. The traditional suit was completely missing in action among this group of guys, who were none too afraid to push the envelope beyond basic black.

David Gandy: The model was ever so dapper in his Marks & Spencer Best Of British Collection ensemble when he attended the One For The Boys Charity Ball during the London Collections: Men. With that steely stare, this handsome hot topic can pull off this hyper-tailored, three-piece suit including a plaid sport coat, white vest and dark pleated pants.

Kellan Lutz: At the 2014 MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada, the actor hit the red carpet in a burgundy Ermenegildo Zegna two-button, notch lapel suit. His maroon tie may have been a bit askance, but it’s hard to argue with this eggplant-hued statement.

Luke Evans: Making quite the impression, Luke may have even out-dressed David at the One For the Boys Charity Ball. His Fendi Spring 2014 statement featured a chaotic pattern of blue and charcoal lines, which he complemented with a navy tie and patent blue, rubber-soled loafers. Too loud?

Menswear Roundup

Menswear Thursday Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the fellas who have been on the red carpet over the past two days.

Nicholas Hoult: The British actor kept it simple and clean, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana charcoal-grey suit with an open white shirt and black patent shoes to the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe launch party on Tuesday evening.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor attended the Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai gala held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California wearing a brown Dolce & Gabbana suit.
While I have expressed my dislike for brown fabrics on the red carpet, I have to say that this pinstriped two-button suit with a taupe shirt and micro-dot brown tie surprisingly wins me over.

David Gandy: The supermodel joined Nicholas Hoult on the red carpet for the Jaguar launch party. Having paid a lot of attention during his career, David stands head and shoulders above the others in his double-breasted suit. Not only do I love how well styled the look is, but also the mix of colours – olive, navy, green and sky-blue – all blend so well here. However, it’s the burgundy shoes which get a standing O. It’s not often we see a guy wearing a pair of shoes in colours other than black, tan or brown.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 8 Nov

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the handsome fellas taking to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Tinie Tempah: The birthday boy attended the Beats by Dre event, which doubled up as his ‘Demonstration’ album launch party in London. Perhaps mindful of the fact that some of you have grown tired of the cropped pants, or perhaps because temperatures are dropping swiftly, he opted to wear regular pants on this occasion. I just love the tan wool blazer. This is yet another dapper Dolce & Gabbana look.

David Beckham: The handsome former footballer joined Kylie Minogue on the red carpet for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in Berlin, Germany looking very dapper in his black suit with a Remembrance Day red poppy proudly pinned to his lapel. “Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models and photographers, and the world of world-class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport”, said José Redondo-Vega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor attended the Ermenegildo Zegna global store opening hosted by Gildo Zegna and Stefano Pilati in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening. Looking slick in a blue two-button suit, I love the contrasting black tie and blue shoes. Men so often stick to black.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossun In Carolina Herrera & Gerard Butler In Hugo Boss

Best Dressed Of The Week - Emmy Rossun In Carolina Herrera & Gerard Butler In Hugo Boss

There were at least six people I could’ve picked for Best Dressed this week, but I eventually selected the lovely Emmy Rossum in her Carolina Herrera gown. As I said in my earlier post, she was the picture of perfection.

When it came to the guys I was always going to pick a summery look so, like you, I selected Gerard Butler in his cool blue-and-white Hugo Boss suit worn to the Wimbledon men’s final.

I hope we get to see more summery suits this week.

Gerard Butler & Bradley Cooper – Wimbledon Men’s Final

Gerard Butler & Bradley Cooper - Wimbledon Men’s Final

It wasn’t just the women who were sitting pretty while attending the Men’s Singles Final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London on Sunday afternoon; the guys looked pretty handsome too.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor cheered on his fellow countryman wearing a slick Hugo Boss suit. The look featured a chambray blazer, white shirt and white trousers styled with a navy tie, polka-dot pocket square and brown shoes. I’m struggling to love the brown shoes. Navy or some loafers would’ve been preferred.

Bradley Cooper: The American actor opted for a more classic look, wearing various shades of grey including a two-button notched-lapel suit and a striped tie, with black lace-up shoes providing the finishing touches.

BOSS Shanghai Fashion Show

BOSS Shanghai Fashion Show

HUGO BOSS hosted a spectacular event in Shanghai. The museum “Power Station of Art” venued an impressive fashion show presenting the BOSS Mens- and Womenswear Collections for Winter 2013.
They invited several guests from around the globe.

Carey Mulligan: The British actress posed alongside Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, CEO of Hugo Boss, wearing a BOSS all-black look featuring a blazer, a satin-trimmed bustier and tapered pants, with her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals and a red lip colour completing her look. This is a really chic look; however, I wish she would wear a colour other than black.

Michelle Chen: The actress obliged, wearing a bold orange-hued strapless BOSS gown with a bronze clutch, which is in total contrast to the all-black look worn by Carey.

Gerard Butler: The handsome actor looked very dapper decked out in a classic BOSS black suit. I would’ve loved it had he selected one of the more colourful suits which were presented in this show.
