Kempt Man of the Hour: Daniel Day-Lewis
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
We would never have guessed it, but quirky actor Daniel Day-Lewis has garnered the much-coveted distinction of becoming the first fellow ever to be named MOTH more than once.
At the New York Film Critics Circle Awards the other night where he picked up Best Actor honors for *There Will Be Blood*, Day-Lewis was dashing in a custom-made charcoal grey double-breasted chalkstripe suit, worn with a tattersall shirt, subtly spotted silver silk tie, and brown suede shoes, Duke of Windsor-style.
In place of a pocket square, a pair of black-framed spectacles peeked out of his breast pocket. Day-Lewis consistently declines to identify his tailor, as is his right, but judging by the identical and somewhat idiosyncratic high stance of the ticket pocket, we’re guessing this suit was made by the same maestro who turned out the bold three-piece tweed number the actor wore to the *Blood* premiere, which made him a MOTH the first time around.
