Kempt Man of the Hour: Jesse Williams


It doesn’t have to be complicated.

Take this snap of Jesse Williams at a Dewar’s event on Thursday. There aren’t any high-fashion moves here, just a blue blazer, gray pants and a sliver of a pocket square—as classic an outfit as you’re likely to find. Even the fit is down-the-middle, with just enough of a break in his pants to keep his socks safely disguised.

But mostly, we’d like to give him a hat tip to the glasses. Most actors wouldn’t be caught within miles of non-essential eyewear on a red carpet, but Williams didn’t even blink.

In fact, moments after the picture was taken, he removed them dramatically.
