Gosling Lives

  • Najib Benouar

We’ve been seriously worried for a while now. For most of 2012, Ryan Gosling has been missing from red carpets, style blogs and, most troubling, our hearts.

Luckily, we can call off the APB we sent out, since it looks like Esquire has found him hiding out in Canada (our mistake for not alerting the Mounties). And thankfully, even after the hiatus, he hasn’t missed a beat. Here he is at the Toronto Film Festival, sporting a Gucci suit in an unexpected pattern and attempting the legendary invisi-tie. It’s a move that was perfected by Phil Collins (perhaps willed by an Invisible Touch) with success that may never be replicated. Esquire pans Ryan for the try, but let’s look at the bigger picture here: His Goslingness has returned.

Just in case, authorities are still on the lookout for his tie.

Kempt Man of the Hour: Liam

This week’s MOTH comes from an unlikely place: an unknown artist, casually dressed, resting on a stoop in Toronto of all places.

It’s not a complicated look—or even a particularly cutting edge one—but around this time of year it’s hard to top a cable-knit sweater, Red Wings, and a pair of ruggedly autumnal pants. None of the items are particularly unusual, but that deep navy makes the sweater one of the better cable-knits we’ve seen all year, and we could say the same thing about those pants.

It just goes to show: sometimes simple works.
