Kempt Man of the Hour: Brad Pitt
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
The *New York Times* may feel no affection for it, but Brad Pitt seems solidly behind the three-piece suit surge judging by what he wore to the 13th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards
in L.A. the other night. Of course there are two mitigating factors: a) he’s *Brad Pitt*, and b) his threads are by Tom Ford.
In other words, he doesn’t give a shit if some twit from the *Times* advises him to “ditch the suit.” Of course, Ford’s three-pieces (as seen on fellow MOTH Killian Hennessy, and frequently Ford himself) pack more panache than most. He favors a single-breasted, peak-lapel model that requires a fair amount of panache on the part of the wearer as well to carry off. Pitt’s version is grey wool Prince of Wales plaid with a ticket pocket and flat-front trousers, worn with a nubby cashmere scarf which gives it a twist of insouciance. While the scarf was a nice touch, of course it hardly rivaled his other accessory: Angelina Jolie.
