The Real Winners of the 2013 Emmys

  • Kempt Staff

2013-09-23T002437Z_01_LOA900_RTRIDSP_3_TELEVISION-EMMYS A little something called the Emmys happened last night.

Sure, there were some upsets on the podium, but we were more interested in who won the red carpet. And we must say, the competition was strong (while last night’s mantra seemed to be “this golden age of television,” the past few awards seasons suggest we’ve reentered a “golden age of red carpet black tie” as well).

It was mostly a black and midnight blue affair, but there were a few departures we could get behind—most notably, Jon Hamm’s ivory peak lapels and even Neil Patrick Harris’ deep wine-hued number. Naturally, we’ve rounded up the most dapper of the lot:

Kempt Man of the Hour: Jimmy Kimmel

When you’re running the show, it helps to dress the part.

So we were pleasantly surprised to see Jimmy Kimmel show up to his Emmy hosting gig in a notched-lapel tuxedo that was tailored to perfection. It’s especially impressive because comedians, in general, have a hard time taking anything seriously—even when dressing themselves (Ricky Gervais comes to mind). And Kimmel didn’t just play it safe with the typical grosgrain-ribbon job, he went charcoal and three-piece, and nailed it—more proof that there’s no substitute for a good tailor.

And that vest really tied the dapper ringmaster look together.

Our Emmy Premonitions

As you may know, the Emmys are this Sunday. And in the interest of getting a jump on the live-bloggers, we’ve developed something called a “pre-cap.” It combines an in-depth study of the nominees and presenters with a reckless disregard for accuracy—resulting in minutely detailed premonitions of what will happen at the ceremony, a mere 48 hours from now. Update your Emmy pools accordingly.
