Kempt Man of the Hour: John C. Reilly

This week, John C. Reilly faced two immutable, contradictory truths.

First, Cannes is very glamorous. Second, Cannes is very hot.

His solution takes a page from southern style. He arrived at the 64th Cannes Film Festival wearing a pair of shortwing spectators, a featherweight suit and a panama hat—a throwback, to be sure.

It’s the kind of thing you could imagine Chaplin wearing on his day off, but for a half-comic actor like Reilly, it’s the perfect reminder that he isn’t just appearing in Scottish psychodramas all day.

In other words, it’s the best possible way to dress like a clown. As it turns out, French cinephiles have a soft spot for them.

1979 Is Going To Be a Good Year

In honor of the New Year, Tom Ford’s released his Spring/Summer collection to the wilds of the internet. On some level, it’s the same bombastic 70s loungewear we’re used to from Tom Ford—but as a vision of things to come, it’s downright exciting.

The big winners so far are spectators and dangling belts, along with the same safari jackets, wide-lapeled tuxes and neckerchiefs he’s been pushing since ‘09. Also, if you have a pair of white pants cluttering up your closet, you might want to start airing them out now.

And maybe that fondue set.
