The red carpet isn’t all tuxedos and pomaded hair.

Take, for example, claymation guru Nick Park’s appearance at this weekend’s BAFTA awards. We wouldn’t describe it as dashing, per se, but for a gentleman best known for meticulous stop-motion confections (Wallace and Gromit, if you were wondering), it’s a pretty consistent image. The bowtie’s a good example of the old school of neckwear, but we’re more interested in the light-sopping jacket.

Nobody’s going to confuse him with George Clooney, but he seems to have the “nerdy craftsman” look sewn up.
