And now we’d like to celebrate our favorite baseball tradition of them all: throwing out the first pitch. Naturally, over the years, more than a few style icons—from JFK to Eddie Vedder—have taken the mound for the inaugural heave, and we’ve rounded up some of the most stylish non-belly-itchers of all time. So, without further ado:
In many ways, we were glad for the lightly humdrum proceedings last night because it gave us a chance to concentrate on what’s truly important: the tuxedos. The competition was fierce, between Plummer’s playful velvet and Clooney’s usual impeccable kit, but we were able to pick out five getups that rose above the crowd to make a statement. In case you missed it, here are the five takeaways...
Welcome to the MOTH makeover edition. Rather than an award for a single outfit, this one goes to Tom Hanks for his recent transformation from Tinseltown schlub to one of Hollywood's best-dressed men.
Up until the past few months, it was strictly sack suits and Today's Man looks for the hapless Hanks, when he could even be bothered to wear a tie. When Hanks started turning out extra nattily, we quickly detected the hand of Machiavellian style master (and MOTH mainstay) Tom Ford, whose new ad campaign is causing such a ruckus. Ford prescribed well-cut suits and elegant ties with bespoke details in classic monochromatic palettes worthy of Cary Grant.
While he may have dressed multiple MOTHs (four to date) as well as James Bond, every so often we're reminded that Tom Ford is really his own best model. In the same sort of way that a restaurant with an absentee owner never seems quite right, Ford's clothes come across so well precisely because they've been road tested and perfected by the man himself, who just happens to be one of the most stylish men on the planet.
