Kempt Man of the Hour: Ryan Gosling
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
Gosling, a Chet Baker fan and accomplished jazz guitarist in his own right, sported one of those signature Tom Ford single-breasted, peak-lapel three-piece suits we've been musing on lately, in a new incarnation. His was a steel-hued silk and linen herringbone number with oversized patch pockets, worn with a white-collared tan and gray checked shirt and black leather shoes also from Ford's closet. Adorning his lapel was a special tribute to unfortunate pal Heath Ledger in the form of a black ribbon designed by his sister Mandi, Gosling's date for the evening.
Meanwhile, fellow MOTH Brad Pitt sported another one of Ford's creations at the same event, a similarly-styled single-breasted peak-lapel three-piece in basic black with a ticket pocket. These boys must be onto something.
