Ladies and gentlemen, here is a picture of Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy wearing Band of Outsiders suits and playing with swords. Do with it what you will.
Daniel Radcliffe is not George Clooney. He’s also not James Bond. He is, for the moment at least, Harry Potter—and he doesn’t seem to have a problem with it.
This snap comes from the premiere of his latest Broadway Venture, How to Succeed at Business Without Really Trying. The answer, apparently, is to have Thom Browne in your corner. His tux comes from Browne’s Black Fleece collaboration with Brooks Brothers, and boasts one of shortest jackets you’ll ever see on a tuxedo. And without taking sides in the jacket wars, it’s pretty handsome stuff.
It’s not an elegant look—more boyish than masterful—but for a young man engaging in the most boyish kind of theater there is, it’s a perfect fit. (The tousled pocket square doesn’t hurt either.) It’s also won’t convince anyone to cast him as Macbeth, but we doubt he’ll lose much sleep over it.
When we first heard that *Harry Potter* menace Daniel Radcliffe was appearing in a new Broadway play which required him to get naked and fondle horses, we resolved to steer clear of the Theater District for the duration—that is, after the box office corrected our misapprehension that *Radcliffe girls* were getting naked. Apparently however it appears that a D. Radcliffe *au naturel* is infinitely preferable to one allowed to dress himself, as he showed at the *Equus* premiere the other night with this regrettable blue tuxedo.
