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?

Menswear Weekend Roundup

Menswear Weekend Roundup

The past few days were packed with a range of menswear looks, heavy on the formal tux angle with a few more colourful options thrown in for good measure. Here, a look at the weekend’s handsome set of guys.

Zachary Quinto: A presenter at the 68th annual Tony Awards, the actor dressed for the occasion in a Thom Sweeney three-piece, black wool tuxedo, paired with a white cotton dress shirt and black silk bow tie. David Yurman black onyx shirt studs pulled the look together with an added note of polish.

Djimon Hounsou: Bringing a breath of fresh blue to the red carpet of the ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Los Angeles premiere, Djimon wore his beautifully hued Calvin Klein Collections suit with equally well-styled accessories, including an incredible pair of navy Christian Louboutin loafers, Martin Katz cufflinks, and a Montblanc timepiece.

Daniel Radcliffe
: In attendance at the Tony Awards supporting his play, ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan,’ Daniel was dapper in an Ermenegildo Zegna Made-to-Measure one-button, satin peak-lapel tuxedo in midnight navy—a great departure from the traditional black colour. A matching bow tie, white dress shirt, and KG Kurt Geiger ‘Anton’ shoes finished the look.

Matt Smith In Thom Sweeney – ‘Lost River’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Matt Smith In Thom Sweeney - 'Lost River' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

While busy swooning over Ryan Gosling, I neglected to notice that there was an equally dapper gentleman taking to the red carpet for the ‘Lost River’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 20) in Cannes, France: Matt Smith.

The British actor looked oh so very handsome in his fit-to-perfection Thom Sweeney blue mohair three-piece suit styled with a white oxford shirt and a blue woven silk tie, with brown shoes rounding out his look.

Would it be blasphemous to say that I think I prefer this look over Ryan’s? You know I have a weakness for three-piece suits.

‘Lost River’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

'Lost River' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks and Matt Smith attended the ‘Lost River’ photocall during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 20) in Cannes, France.

Ryan Gosling: It’s the one we’ve all be waiting for. For some, more so than Cate Blanchett and Blake Lively. Ryan smouldered his way through the photocall this morning looking very handsome in a light-blue shirt and brown trousers. While this look isn’t on a par with his Cannes 2011 Ferragamo look, it’s event appropriate and still swoon-worthy.

Christina Hendricks: Dear Christina, I really want you to blow me away tonight. While I expect you to be wearing black – again – I really hope you at least read the Cannes Film Festival handbook as written by the RCFA readers and myself entitled “Go Big or Go Home”. I have my fingers crossed that you will wear Christian Siriano, as he always dresses you so well. On this occasion she wore a Dior Resort 2015 black suit with Oroton ‘Sepia’ bow pumps.

Matt Smith: The British actor wore a laidback look featuring a cool-blue shirt, checked blazer and navy trousers courtesy of Thom Sweeney. Navy loafers couldn’t be a more perfect way to round out this look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here’s a quick menswear roundup.

Josh Hartnett: The actor joined his co-star Eva Green for Sky Atlantic’s photocall for ‘Penny Dreadful’ held at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel on Monday (May 12) in London, England. Opting once again for Dior Homme, the actor wore a navy wool two-button notch-lapel suit, a white cotton covered-placket shirt and black leather derbies, punching up the look with a patterned tie.

David Beckham: The former soccer star attended the private launch of David Beckham For H&M Swimwear held at Shoreditch House on Wednesday (May 14) in London, England. Looking gorgeous in all black, I love the sexy, laidback vibe he had going on here. The leather-collared coat really brings the whole look together. Brown Christian Louboutin ‘Antonio’ flats completed his look.

Michael Fassbender: The handsome actor attended the UK Premiere of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ held at Odeon Leicester Square on Monday (May 12) in London, England. He wore a Thom Sweeney windowpane three-piece suit, blue shirt and dark-blue silk tie, accessorizing with a pair of John Lobb ‘Chigwell’ maroon lace-up shoes. Sadly, the pant length is too long here.
