Gentlemen, take note. This is how you should be dressed right now.
As demonstrated here by one Michael Kenneth Williams at a recent Emmys Q&A for Boardwalk Empire—so he gets extra points for resisting the urge to show up in a three-piece. You might want to tone down the colors for everyday use, but everything here is right on: the trad navy blazer with gold buttons, the extra layer to account for a spring weather swing, the open collar. It all starts feeling a little Brooks Brothers until you spot those slightly eccentric blue brogues.
The lesson here: a little eccentricity goes a long way. (And even when it comes to pastels, Omar don’t scare.)
This was an easy one.
Sure, Gosling may have been gallivanting through Paris with Eva Mendes and a well-cut pea coat, but the best dressed gentleman of this particular week was Michael K. Williams, as spotted at the Hugo premiere.
The turtleneck’s handsome enough—especially when most of the crowd was in a suit and tie—but the real prize is the vaguely Cossack overcoat, complete some of the coziest lapels in the Western hemisphere.
Put them together and he looks like he just stepped out of a Cucinelli ad. Legendary stuff.
