Man of the Hour: Eddie Redmayne

  • Najib Benouar

Menswear’s newest red-carpet darling, Eddie Redmayne, showed up to yesterday’s National Board of Review Awards in a jet-black Burberry suit tailored to within an inch of its life.

It works for Redmayne because he’s a slim guy—the smaller lapels, the sleek arms, the skinny tie all work together to create a very modern British look. But if you were to put something with the same trimmed-down proportions on a wider frame, you might be veering into Joel McHale circa 2011 territory. In other words, this is a good lesson on proportion and fit for the slimmer gents out there—and a cautionary tale for the broad-shouldered. And throwing an interesting tie into the simple black-and-white palette doesn’t hurt either.

Neither does being British.
