2019 Oscars Menswear Roundup

2019 Oscars Menswear Roundup

Here’s a look at the 2019 Oscars menswear, with many looks that expanded far beyond the standard black tux.

Nicholas Hoult: With its unique cross-body jacket and what could only be called a side train, the British actor and star of ‘The Favourite’ opted for slightly more unorthodox territory with this Dior Men suiting styled with a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch. But, the all-black aesthetic kept the look sophisticated and appropriate enough for Oscars night.

Joe Alwyn: Going the way of a formal black Tom Ford tuxedo, this actor from ‘The Favourite’ offered a more traditional approach than his co-star Nicholas.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star dressed to impress — as usual — in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2018 number. The embellished, long jacket-robe hybrid was distinctive enough to speak volumes for the regal-meets-experimental look.

Stephan James: You may characterize Etro looks for their rich patterns, but this custom Etro burgundy suit relied on even richer velveteen texture for impact. David Yurman accessories and a Swarovski pin added even more personality, although I’m not completely sold on the Giuseppe Zanotti white boots.

Henry Golding: I love how Henry offered a different variation of the typical tux in this custom Ralph Lauren design complete with a crisp white vest and bow tie.

David Oyelowo: Also in an Etro velvet tux, this emerald-green design looked like the serious older sibling to Stephan’s ensemble. Roger Vivier smoking slippers completed the smooth look.

Winston Duke: I’m not sure I can fully get on board with the rather overzealous white piping on this Thom Browne tailoring. An outline of the lapel would have been plenty. David Yurman accessories and Tod’s shoes completed the look.

Michael B. Jordan: Also in a Tom Ford look on Oscars night, the always-impeccable actor was as handsome as ever with his plush midnight-blue dinner jacket and perfectly placed pins.

Chris Evans: The velvet trend showed up again in Chris’s bespoke Salvatore Ferragamo ensemble that was set apart by its sleek yet statement-making petrol-blue jacket.

Rami Malek: The ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ actor and Oscar winner wore a Saint Laurent suit for his big moment. It was basic but it got the job done.

Mark Ronson: I think the statement lapels and exaggerated cuffs translated a bit comically on this suit, but the Chopard accessories passed the test.

Mahershala Ali: Walking the carpet alongside Amatus Sami-Karim, the ‘Green Book’ actor and Oscar winner paid homage to his roots with a kufi hat accessorizing his embossed Ermenegildo Zegna XXX black suit.

    Nicholas’ look is decent enough, the all-black look does somewhat dull down what could have been quite an elaborate piece though.

    Not sold on Chadwick’s outfit but kudos to him for the effort.

    Agree about Stephen’s boots, and overall I neither love nor hate his look.I prefer David’s but there’s also something about his look that doesn’t quite work that I can’t put my finger on.

    Henry looks sharp and slick, really nice for Oscars night. MBJ and Chris Evans doing a good job on the velvet, Chris in particular manages to avoid looking too heavy which is impressive as he’s a muscular guy.

    The rest are all just meh with Mahershala looking a bit smoother than the rest. Shame that Rami opted for such a bland look in comparison to his more recent choices.

    Henry, MBJ and Chris were my favourites.

    If Mahershala is wearing a Kufi than I like it, if he’s just wearing a beanie than I hate it.

    Can you please give Adam Lambert his own post? The man had three outfit changes between the two major events. (main show and VF Party) I’m a personal fan of the Tom Ford (Red Carpet), and the Gucci. (VF Party)

    Henry and Rami.

    Chris Evans, mostly due to his gorgeous face, he’s my favourite Chris. Otherwise, I like Henry, MJB and Nicholas. Stephan looked great on camera but silly here, rare miss for him. I agree about Chadwick, love the texture of the jacket, just wish it was a normal length.

  7. Im February 25, 2019 at 2:00 pm #

    Nicholas and Billy were the best dressed men.

    I like the idea of Chadwick’s look, but I’m not sure on the execution. He looked better last year.

    I love that guys are being much more adventurous with their choices. But for me, it’s all about Nicholas Hoult in that Dior.

  9. Amy February 25, 2019 at 12:54 pm #

    The men are really coming for our wigs these days. Love the different looks.
    Henry Golding is classic perfection.
    I love Chris Evans’s jacket, Such a soft, unusual pick.
    I like Nicholas’s neckline but the side fabric is doing nothing for me. He still gets points for trying. Interesting.

  10. Serena February 25, 2019 at 12:33 pm #

    Is it me, or does anyone find the two (different) lapels in Henry’s jacket and vest clashing?

  11. annna February 25, 2019 at 12:18 pm #

    Nicholas Hoult looks so cool!

    Nicholas looks fantastic and he is just so crazy HANDSOME, Michael B Jordan looks comically little in that photo which distracts me from assessing whether his outfit is notably good (good but just not sure if it’s notable), Stephan James and Henry Golding also made me laugh because they both look a tiny bit ridiculous, but I prefer laughter to same-old-same-old, and in their shoes I’d much rather opt for something fun than staid.

    Not sold on the extra swag of fabric, but Nicholas in that jacket makes one wonder why so few try alternative tailoring for men’s suiting. Sharp, incisive lines yet somehow also subtle: note to most, contrast piping or silly colors and patterns can just look cheap and try-hard…

  15. CreoleLady February 25, 2019 at 11:05 am #

    The men looked great. Among my faves — Chadwick Boseman, Billy Porter, Henry Golding, Chris Evans, David Oyelowo, Adam Lambert. Stephan James too until I got to those white boots, and even so, still kinda loving JHH’s riverboat gambler, lol.

    I like being more adventurous with style but apart from Nicolas, no guy really brought it when it came to execution. Henry looks handsome but dressed for Titanic remake. Stephan as noted below looks like a western musical actor. Chadwick is subpar here. Winston’s blazer looks cheap and ill-fitting. The rest are bland. Chris Pine *drool*

    I’m so disappointed by Chadwick and Stephan’s looks. Just no.

    Henry and MBJ look good.

    Glad to see men are trying to bring something different to the table. I believe Nicholas indeed hit the nail on the head here – he looks sharp and sophisticated for the night with a slight modern and fashionable variation. He also shows a great bearing.
    Chris Evans looks fab in the teal jacket as well.

  22. Phee February 25, 2019 at 5:27 am #

    Nicholas looks amazing and interesting. he totally works it.
    Chadwick is a no this time…..

    Henry Golding is also perfection.

  23. Jas February 25, 2019 at 5:17 am #

    Nicholas Hoult (schmick!), Henry Goulding (classic and excellent) and Mahershala Ali (ignoring the beanie, so cool!)

  24. Ruth February 25, 2019 at 5:13 am #

    Stephen james look is the exact same suit david oyelowo wore some few Oscars ago. The only difference is Stephen’s own is velvet.

    Chadwick has gone too far.he needs to take it back a bit.

    Nicholas should isn’t selling that suit to me. The suit belongs to timothee.

    This is such a lacklustre bunch.
    Chris Evans is my favourite
    Richard e. Grant also looked good too bad he’s not on the list

  25. JHH February 25, 2019 at 5:01 am #

    Stephan looks like a riverboat gambler from a bad western. I learned today that there is footwear that I dislike more than white pumps and it is white boots. Michael B. Jordan looks great.

    • JHH February 25, 2019 at 5:49 am #

      That hat on Mahershala does not look like Kufi. Did he say it is?

    • Kimma February 25, 2019 at 6:31 am #

      Lol 😂 the star burst badge adds to the effect

  26. brat February 25, 2019 at 4:59 am #

    I would love Chadwick’s more if that gorgeous jacket didn’t extend all the way down to the floor, overkill.

    Stephan looks great as always.

    But it’s Henry Golding who wins the night for me, could he be any more old-world dashing? I’m swooning.

    • cs February 25, 2019 at 5:51 am #

      I can just imagine how amazing Henry’s black and white combo looks in person.

    • Micha February 25, 2019 at 6:08 am #

      Yeah, Mahershala is wearing a beanie, not a kufi. He’s selling the look to me, though.
