Kempt Man of the Hour: Michael Sheen

The surprise beard can be a powerful move if properly executed (see Hamm, Jon), but it requires a certain amount of artful dishevelment alongside it—especially if you happen to be at Comic-Con, the national center for dishevelment, artful or no.

This week’s lesson comes from Michael Sheen, caught at the Tron Legacy panel. To be perfectly honest, we didn’t know he had that kind of whisker in him. More importantly, he manages to work it into a desert-island look casual enough not to threaten the Comic-con crowd but gentlemanly enough to impress any style bloggers who might be passing by. That means those peak lapels are small enough that nobody but those who care will notice, to say nothing of the effortless off-white shirt. Well done, Mr. Prime Minister.
