Who: Amir Khan

Where: Pride Of Britain Awards 2016, London

We’ve long praised less Eurocentric options for black tie, and here Amir Khan proves that an alternative to a tried-and-trusted tux is often more impactful. The jacket’s rich in both shade and texture, while the red button detailing adds a subtle but memorable contrast.

Who: A$AP Rocky

Where: 2016 LACMA Art + Film Gala, LA

A$AP Rocky: the only man to jump from Drake collabs to Gucci partnerships in one furry loafer. Here, the ‘LSD’ rapper is far from a f*cking problem with a black tie rejig – print lapels add statement, while a continental tie sidesteps tradition but still toes the dress code.

Who: Andrew Garfield

Where: Jimmy Kimmel Live, LA

Andrew Garfield might be most famous for skyscraper-crawling superhero Spider-Man, but the actor himself is pretty down to earth. So grounded, in fact, that his look is too, a combination of earth tones that aces autumn style.

Who: Ben Foden

Where: Pride Of Britain Awards 2016, London

Forget Peter Kay’s dross stand-up routine. Ben Foden was the real pride of this year’s ceremony. And it’s all thanks to a flattering shade and the pocket watch chain – a firm stamp of sartorial nous. (Better than a tired garlic bread gag anyway.)

Who: Common

Where: Late Night With Seth Meyers

Don’t let the name fool you, Common’s style is exceptional. Here, the Soulquarian alum shows just how simple a statement can be when paired with monochrome separates – perfectly landing the aeronautical print on the talk show couch.

Who: Eddie Redmayne

Where: Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest, LA

From The Danish Girl to designers’ clotheshorse of choice, Eddie Redmayne rocks two heavyweight Italian brands at the same time (Prada and Gucci, FYI). How? With a pair of blue jeans that chime with the dominant colour up top.

Who: Jesse Metcalfe

Where: amfAR’s Inspiration Gala, LA

With his days of ravishing housewives behind him, Jesse Metcalfe is ever the gentleman in classic black tie. The silk lapels correspond with texture to the bow tie and patent shoes, and the overall effect ties the look together. Not a grass stain in sight.

Who: Steven Yeun

Where: ‘Talking Dead’ At Hollywood Forever, LA

Steven Yeun may have croaked in The Walking Dead’s last instalment, but his style is alive and well. Here, the woollen two-piece adds texture to an otherwise forgettable look, and the boots provide a workwear anchor. Dead on.
