The Best-Dressed Men Of The Week

Who: The Weeknd

Where: New York City

If you were in any doubt that menswear is in a time warp right now, take a look at The Weeknd. The Canadian crooner beamed into this week’s list looking like a walking VHS thanks to his kitsch kaleidoscopic colour sweatshirt anchored by joggers and dad trainers. It was acceptable in the ’80s, and baby, it’s all coming back.

Who: Armie Hammer

Where: Deadline’s Annual The Contenders Event, Los Angeles

He became one of 2018’s biggest style heroes thanks to his smooth summer wardrobe in Call Me By Your Name, and Armie Hammer is working hard to keep it up. At Deadline’s annual The Contenders event in Los Angeles, the actor played it cool with a printed shirt toned down by a brown suede jacket and slim chinos.

Who: Michael B. Jordan

Where: Hollywood Film Awards, Los Angeles

Ahead of his starring role in Creed 2 (we’re already dusting off our slurring Rocky impressions) Michael B. Jordan showed how the double-breasted suit can be deployed to knockout effect. The secret? It’s all in the razor-sharp fit that keeps this old-school tailoring move from feeling dated.

Who: Timothée Chalamet

Where: Hollywood Film Awards, Los Angeles

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the dandiest of them all? Well, that would be David Gandy, but Timothée Chalamet is arguably a close second. This week the 22-year-old cemented his ascension to the menswear hall of fame with an eye-catching Louis Vuitton sequinned shirt under his slick suit. We’ll ask again next week, mirror.

Who: Johannes Huebl

Where: The Girl In The Spider Web Special Screening, New York

The key to killing your winter look is through investing in a top class overcoat to last you through the season (and the next). Model Johannes Huebl knows, turning to his trim brown version which does all the heavy lifting at a screening of The Girl In The Spider Web, allowing the grey sweatshirt and matching Chelsea boots to play a supporting role.

Who: 21 Savage

Where: 15th Annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, New York

Savage by name, Savage by nature. Saint Laurent Don, AKA Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, AKA… you get the idea, pulled off a killer look at the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards, throwing together three of the season’s biggest trending textiles: corduroy, fleece and shearling into one fire ‘fit. The winner is.

Who: Tom Hiddleston

Where: BAFTA Breakthrough Brits, London

Tailoring has gone up a gear in recent seasons. Vibrant colours, boxy cuts, lapels wider than the Channel. And yet sometimes all you need to knock it out the park is a navy suit that fits like a glove and a crisp white shirt. So when in doubt, make like Tom Hiddleston and pass on all the mod cons for something that will work until the end of time.

Who: Virgil Abloh

Where: Innovator Awards, New York

Got an invite to a black tie event but don’t fancy dressing up like a penguin? Don’t sweat, menswear don and Louis Vuitton chief Virgil Abloh says you don’t have to. Swap the blazer for a leather jacket, shoes for high-tops and dickie bow for an actual black tie. Well, that’s one out of three on the money.

Who: Channing Tatum

Where: Innovator Awards, New York

Menswear fans watching the royal wedding back in May will have swooned over David Beckham’s contrasting light grey waistcoat. But proving it’s not a look reserved for Mr Posh Spice, this week Channing Tatum did the same, stepping out at the Innovator Awards in an outfit that was simply magic.

Who: Jamie Dornan

Where: Deadline’s Annual The Contenders Event, Los Angeles

Not all red carpet events have to be stuffy, suited affairs. This one doesn’t even have a red carpet. Which meant that Jamie Dornan could take the night off and relax in that old menswear favourite: the sweatshirt, thrown on with chinos and a pair of work boots.
