Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen – ‘Iron Man 3’ Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen - 'Iron Man 3' Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to stepping outside the box when it comes to fashion, but he outdid himself at the Munich photocall for ‘Iron Man 3’ in Germany this afternoon at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof.

He showed up wearing traditional German lederhosen, complete with a neckerchief, embroidered cropped pants, green socks and Gucci Trek brown leather boots,

I’m sure he gave the journalists a good laugh wearing their nation-appropriate garb.

As the saying goes, when in Munich, do as the Münchners do.

He certainly has the charisma to pull it off.

Robert Downey Jr. In Vivienne Westwood Man – ‘Iron Man 3’ Seoul Premiere

Robert Downey Jr In Vivienne Westwood Man - 'Iron Man 3' Seoul Premiere

Providing us with yet another fresh take on menswear, Robert Downey Jr. took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Iron Man 3′ Seoul premiere, held at Times Square in South Korea.

While the colours were traditional, this Vivienne Westwood Fall 2013 tuxedo was anything but.

He wore a black-and-white shawl collar tuxedo jacket which complemented his part-wool, part-satin pants.

Adding another quirk to his look, the actor wore his suit with a white shirt featuring black tips on the collar.

Of course his look wouldn’t be complete without sneakers and even those were toned down, by his standards, on this occasion.

Do you like RDJ’s contemporary interpretation of the classic tux? Should he have worn a black shirt as presented on the runway?

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Robert Downey Jr.: The ‘Iron Man 3’ promo tour was kick started with a press conference at the Conrad Hotel in South Korea on Thursday, for which Robert went monochromatic. Always doing things differently, he opted for a light-grey Ferragamo jacket featuring white trim on the edges, and too-long grey pants. I love that he wore sneakers with this look, which stays true to his quirky style, but I’ve never been on board with glitzy sneakers.

Gerard Butler: For the London premiere for ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, Gerard looked his usual dapper self clad in a grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with peak lapels. I like the simplicity of the look, with a grey tie that matches his suit and a classic white shirt, but the pants have too much break.

Aaron Eckhart: In a well-tailored navy suit, Aaron cleaned up handsomely when he joined his ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ co-star on the red carpet yesterday evening. Going with all blue, he matched the notch-lapel suit with a light-blue shirt and a blue tie. I love the all-blue look here on Aaron. Props for wearing pants that fit perfectly.

2013 People’s Choice Awards Menswear Round Up

People Choice Awards Mens

While the girls had the most glamorous fun at yesterday evening’s 2013 People’s Choice Awards hosted at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California, the guys brought some serious style—and hunk factor—to the red carpet, too.

Eddie Redmayne: The ‘Les Miserables; actor still proved he was worthy to be part of our Best Ensemble Cast of 2012 with his slimline tan suit, black vest and burgundy satin pocket square. Not only was it nice to see the British actor working a colored suit, he played up his cool-boy charm with his hands-in-the-pocket pose and a tie-less shirt with the top button open.

Matt Bomer: It was 50 shades of navy for ‘White Collar’s’ handsome star, as he went for a more traditional approach with his dark inky tuxedo paired up with a lighter tie and pocket square and a blue-and-white microprint shirt. The look actually worked perfectly for Matt, especially with his own set of icy baby blues.

Liam Hemsworth: In perhaps the boldest male moment of the night, Miley Cyrus’s fiancé took a risk with his Ermenegildo Zegna burgundy suit, which he matched back to a shiny black tie and button-down shirt and a glossy patent loafer. But his verve paid off, delivering a dapper red-carpet look that was both polished and style-forward. It helped that his jacket and pants were perfectly tailored. Read More…

Robert Downey Jr. Loves Vivienne Westwood

Robert Downey Jr. is one of the few men who make red-carpet dressing fun.

One of his favourite designers is Vivienne Westwood.

I loved the cornflower-blue Westwood suit he wore to the ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ Rome photocall back in December last year, but I’m not too crazy about the white sneakers with the blue toe-caps.

During the promotional tour for ‘The Avengers’, he has worn a Vivienne Westwood suit twice so far.

For the Moscow premiere he looked very dapper in a grey plaid suit which he styled with a black-and-white check bow tie, a white dress shirt and Marc Jacobs beaded sneakers.

The actor appeared more serious on the red carpet for the London premiere, but his navy Vivienne Westwood suit was styled with a shirt with oversized cuffs and black sneakers.

What do you think of Robert’s style? Do you like that he pairs his suits with sneakers?
