Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Men 5 december

Here is quick round-up of gents who took to the red carpet yesterday evening (December 4).

James Marsden:
The handsome actor attended the 2014 GQ Men of the Year party held at the at the Chateau Marmont in LA looking sharp wearing a Thom Sweeney navy mohair three-piece suit. Aside from by hypnotized by that rich navy hue, I’m also saluting the mix of burgundy and brown incorporated into this look. There is never a dull moment in menswear when James is around.

Richard Armitage: The actor suited up for the Paris premiere of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies’, held at Le Grand Rex on Thursday (December 4). Opting for the sartorial elegance of Ermenegildo Zegna once again, this time he looked even more dashing in a burgundy shawl-collar suit styled with a grey shirt and brown striped tie.

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney – Thom Sweeney Store Opening

David Gandy & Jamie Redknapp In Thom Sweeney

Thom Sweeney has been the go-to designer for British celebs both home and abroad, plus the likes of the well-dressed James Marsden have also been spotted donning the designer’s well-tailored suits.

Last night (November 13) a few of Thom’s fans joined him for the opening of his new Ready to Wear & Made to Measure Store in located at 33A Bruton Place, London, England.

David Gandy: Always topping best-dressed lists, he is likely to achieve that feat once again wearing a Thom Sweeney light-grey double-breasted suit, light-blue cotton shirt and speckled charcoal wool tie. Yes, I did swoon, firstly at the overall sheer magnitude of how impeccable he looks, and secondly because I got lost in those blue eyes.

Jamie Redknapp: Always well-dressed and often in Thom Sweeney, I was not surprised to see the former soccer star in attendance with his Isabel Marant-clad wife, Louise Redknapp. While she opted for a more laidback look which including an Isabel Marant embellished wool jacket which is to die for, he looked as sharp as ever wearing a Thom Sweeney dark-grey single-breasted suit styled with a light-blue cotton button-down shirt and a dark-green tie.

Dilemmas, dilemmas, who wore it best? I’m gonna flip a coin for this one.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Keira Knightley In Valentino Couture, Kaitlyn Dever In Andrew Gn & James Marsden In Thom Sweeney

Best Dressed Of The Week - Keira Knightley In Valentino Couture, Kaitlyn Dever In Andrew Gn & James Marsden In Thom Sweeney

It was a close call but Keira Knightley was your best dressed this week wearing a tiered lace Valentino Couture gown in what turned out to be a very strong week.

I had narrowed my favourites down to three, eventually selecting the newbie in the most vibrant sunshine gown: Kaitlyn Dever in Andrew Gn.

As you know, I am a sucker for colour and print, plus she looked so damn adorable, so some might not be surprised by my selection.

When it came to the fellas, James Marsden in Thom Sweeney was the clear winner.

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney – ‘The Best Of Me’ LA Premiere

James Marsden In Thom Sweeney - 'The Best Of Me'  LA Premiere

James Marsden joined his beautiful co-star Michelle Monaghan on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘The Best Of Me’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Tuesday (October 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Bringing menswear back to the forefront, the actor makes us swoon in his Thom Sweeney notched-lapel cool-blue suit, which brings out those baby-blue eyes.

It’s not just the colour of the suit that should be admired, but also the sleek styling, consisting of a striped shirt, grey tie and Givenchy shoes.

While Eddie Redmayne is probably the front runner for best-dressed man of the year, I would say James should also be in consideration for his consistency and ability to always impress with something new.

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?
