Richard Gere, Man of the Hour
- Najib Benouar
Recently there have been multiple Richard Gere sightings that can only be described as gloriously #menswear-y. Let’s take a closer look at the photographic evidence and try to unlock the mystery of why he’s dressed like an eccentric philanthropist:
Richard Gere is...
... starring in an off-Broadway production of The Sartorialist: The Musical?
... shooting a L’Uomo Vogue editorial on suiting?
... leaving film behind to become a bearded, robed, binder-carrying menswear buyer—and has just stepped out of a Pitti Uomo presentation?
... modeling a lookbook for one of those impossibly cool Italian brands that no one can pronounce, let alone afford?
Sadly, it’s none of the above—as much as we wanted it to be. Actually, he’s just filming a new movie, Franny, in Philadelphia with Dakota Fanning.
But they all seemed pretty damn plausible, right?
