Style Icons Wearing Santa Hats...

  • Najib Benouar

It’s Christmas Eve. That means at some point in the next 24 hours you might be faced with the opportunity to don a fur-lined topper, Santa-style...

Now, we included the Santa hat in our holiday must-haves, but with a stern disclaimer: there’s a time and a place for taking such a sartorial risk. If that time’s ever going to come, it’s tonight.

So in the event that you’re feeling up to the challenge, we’ve found some of history’s most stylish gents pulling off the look—from Bing Crosby to Ryan Gosling—and put them here for you, sort of as a sartorial confidence booster. (And as something to keep you occupied for the next couple days, until Kempt returns to our regularly scheduled dapperness.)

Presenting: the art of wearing a Santa hat, according to the style gods...»

The Real Winners of the Golden Globes

Golden Globes 2012 (Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth)

There was a lot of good style on display at the Golden Globes, but we couldn’t let the day go by without pointing out a few of our favorites. Our winner of the night was Jake Gyllenhaal, who snagged the best tuxedo of the night with his double-breasted Ferragamo number. He’s not the most broad-shouldered guy in the world, but thanks to the DB, he suddenly looked like Sam Worthington.

Otherwise, Tom Ford continued to do wonders for Colin Firth (and vice versa), and Bill Nighy worked a pair of beautiful, owl-like frames into his black-tie repertoire. The only dark spot: the usually affable Thomas Jane, who set back the cause of hats by at least 10 years.
