Kempt Man of the Hour: Colin Firth
- Najib Benouar
We meet again, Mr. Firth...
We haven’t seen much of Colin Firth since his meteoric King’s Speech-era run, when he left red carpets and Oscar acceptance podiums in his Tom Ford-fueled wake. And then he showed up this week at the premiere of his new film, Gambit, looking like he hadn’t missed a beat. We’ll assume this three-piece was another Tom Ford joint, which Firth lends his quintessential British unassuming-dandy-ness to perfectly. The whole thing is harder to pull off than he makes it look—especially the peak lapels—but he does it by keeping it simple in the tie and shirt department. And having some American-born arm candy doesn’t hurt either.
