Who: Conor McGregor
Where: Madison Square Garden, NYC
What happens when you cross Wall Street with cage fighting? Conor McGregor, that’s what.
The MMA superstar reignites the pinstripe suit with a royal blue palette and choice accessories – a 1980s nod without the shoulder pads. After all, the boardroom really is a battlefield.
Who: Asa Butterfield
Where: Build Series Event for Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, NYC
Peculiarity isn’t always a bad thing. And it isn’t just Asa Buttefield’s latest flick flying the weirdo flag.
On paper, an embroidered bomber and woollen trousers don’t work. In practice, monochrome colours tie the look together, with extra points for the layering. Different strokes for stylish folks.
Who: James Van Der Beek
Where: 2016 Streamy Awards, LA
James Van Der Beek has paddled far from the nerdwear of Dawson’s Creek. No more shark’s tooth necklaces. Or polyester shirts. Just merlot bombers in contrast with a Breton stripe and navy chinos. We’ll drink to that.
Who: Jon Kortajarena
Where: Narty Abascal And Aquazurra Fashion Week Dinner, Paris
Without the Kardashian family surgeon, we can’t steal Jon Kortajarena’s razor sharp looks. His masterclass in dressed down tailoring however, is up for grabs.
Here, he softens the tuxedo jacket with a relaxed grey tee and black denim to stay casual and the right side of the dress code. All killer, no lip fillers.
Who: Robert Pattinson
Where: LAX Airport, LA
R-Patz has been rather quiet these days. Probably because the inter-flight look speaks for itself. In this case, an oversized bomber jacket elevates an otherwise grounded outfit – proof that one statement piece is enough. Actions speak louder than words.
Who: Rodrigo Santoro
Where: HBO’s Westworld Premiere, Los Angeles
Sportswear and tailoring can be awkward bedfellows. But as Rodrigo Santoro proves, if you keep your colours muted, then classic separates can sit pretty beneath activewear. A sartorial affair to remember.
Who: Reggie Yates
Where: IWC x BFI Gala, London
A red carpet at a heritage watch event is where exciting looks go to die. But as Reggie Yates proves, a glove-fit double-breasted suit and classic Gucci loafers are all the life you need. Black tie needn’t be funereal.
Who: Miles Teller
Where: Valentino Front Row, Paris
It takes a certain kind of man to outshine Diane Kruger and Keleigh Sperry. But, thanks to a navy tonal flex and subtly printed tie, Miles Teller pulls it off. Miles ahead.
