Kempt Man of the Hour: Ben Kingsley
Summer polo matches like last week’s Cartier International usually call for a uniform of khaki suits and lightweight gray wool, which tends to produce solid results. Sir Kingsley gets this week’s prize for bucking the trend with a powder-blue blazer, a midnight-blue shirt and weather-defying black pants.
The cotton blazer is as close to a summer staple as you get, but one in this color is a lot harder to pull off than it looks, and pairing it with ink-black pants is the kind of sartorial vision that takes you beyond the basics.
Nicely done, sir.
