When you’re running the show, it helps to dress the part.

So we were pleasantly surprised to see Jimmy Kimmel show up to his Emmy hosting gig in a notched-lapel tuxedo that was tailored to perfection. It’s especially impressive because comedians, in general, have a hard time taking anything seriously—even when dressing themselves (Ricky Gervais comes to mind). And Kimmel didn’t just play it safe with the typical grosgrain-ribbon job, he went charcoal and three-piece, and nailed it—more proof that there’s no substitute for a good tailor.

And that vest really tied the dapper ringmaster look together.
