A Suit That Fits Blog
The Number One Suiting Resource
So it was Oscars time again and here at A Suit That Fits we had our beady eyes on the red carpet men's fashion. There were a lot of old favourites as well as some new stars to sink our teeth into. It's always great to see who went with a traditional dinner suit and who tried something a bit more daring. In the traditional camp we had both George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Both went with a black dinner jackets with satin collars, jetted satin pockets and satin seams on their trousers, acompanied by a black bow tie. George Clooney went with a notched collar whereas Brad Pitt's dinner suit had peaked lapels.
One of my favourite outfits though is that of Christopher Plummer, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for the Beginners. He paired simple well tailored black trousers with a luxurious navy blue velvet jacket. The jacket was cut with a large wide notched lapel with satin around the edges. Chris wore his jacket with mother of pearl buttons and a mother of pearl button hole pin. He then teamed it with a cream shirt to compliment the buttons and a black bow tie. A very dapper gent I must say!
There were some great outfits that were seen that night. Robert Downey Jr. and Christian Bale respectively, both went with black dress shirts. Robert teamed his with a charcoal grey peaked lapel tuxedo and an amazing metallic bow tie. Christian Bale also went with a black peaked lapel jacket giving a modern twist with a black satin tie.
Pharrell Williams was flying the flag for the three piece suit. He wore a two button jacket with satin edging on both the wide notched collar as well as the waistcoat. A great outfit, demonstrating that you can't go wrong with a three piece suit.
All in all I would say it was a great night men's tailoring something that us ladies and gents at A Suit That Fits love to see!
