Three of this week’s top 5 suits are all about that most classic suit colour: navy blue. From the Wimbledon final to the filming of the new Krays movie, from a wedding in Washington D.C. to a Bulgari party in Paris, the stars this week (with two important exceptions!) were sporting their finest dark blue threads.
Saving the best suit for last and starting with the most standard navy suit, check out James Righton, Klaxons vocalist and boyfriend of Keira Knightley, at Wimbledon.
The look works for many reasons: the classic details, the fit, the expert combination of three different blues. But the real reason I’m including it in this week’s top 5 suits is because he matched it with the almost identical navy tone of his girlfriend’s outfit. If you thought the recent vogue for all-navy outfits had reached its peak and was beginning to decline, James and Keira are here to prove you wrong with their matching navy.
Next up is an actor recently featured on this blog for wearing a vintage suit while filming scenes from Legend, his movie about the Kray twins. This week on the much-talked-about set, Tom Hardy wore an olive-green, three-piece suit in a thick, tweed-like material. Definitely not a summer suit, but it fit Hardy like a glove: check out the length of his jacket’s arms. If nothing else convinces you to own a three-piece suit, this should.
Another dark navy suit was worn this week by Bradley Cooper, who gave Tom Hardy a run for his money in the three-piece department. Like Hardy, Cooper’s suit featured a six-button waistcoat; his jacket, however, featured peaked lapels, which gave the suit a more American quality. Whereas Hardy’s suit fit like a second skin, Cooper appeared to be bulging out of his a little. Still, a great suit and more wearable than Hardy’s vintage styling.
The last non-navy suit in this week’s top 5 is the black dinner suit NBA star Dwayne Wade wore to a wedding in Washington D.C. The fact that such a big guy can look so good in a dinner jacket is usually the sign of a good tailor. Check out the narrow peaked lapels and great fit below.
The final suit on this week’s list happens to be the only dinner suit besides Wade’s and is probably my favorite of them all. The Hobbit actor Luke Evans wore a navy tuxedo to a Bulgari party in Paris. Thanks to his slashed pockets, slim fit (check out those ultra narrow ankles!) and casual lack of neckwear, Evans looked the business. More of our Top Suits next week!
