While many men stick to the classic tux, there are simple dashes of fun with unique twists of originality, sometimes in a subtle way, sometimes more bombastic in nature. Personality has everything to do with how your outfit looks on you. What do you think of the men styles below?
Hooray for Hollywood...The epitome of panache and elegance? Sure, most of the time. These gents play it safe and keep it simple, classic cool is the rule. Mick Jagger's pinstripe suit is a welcome rebuttal to classic standards but only someone with a personality to match can rock this type of loud ensemble.
And I do my little turn on the catwalk...Fashion heavyweights, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfield, head two of the most popular and fashion-influential brand names in the world, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, respectively. Both have made names for themselves among some of the best designers EVER... but how do they stack up to your view of a classic look with their personal style? Marc Jacobs "didn't want to wear a tuxedo and be boring." Boring is hardly the adjective to use here!
It's bigger than hip hop, hip hop, hip hop...
They sample classic doo-wop and Motown, why not copy classic Sinatra steez as well? Kanye and Swizz Beats look effortlessly chic and elegant in the classic tux. Swizz jazzed up his version with velvet luxe.
Are you ready for some football...I know, some of us may still harbor a little bitterness for Gisele because of her, um, less-than-savory remarks about the Patriots after that Super Bowl that shan't be mentioned (really?!?!) But this golden couple takes center stage every year at the Met Ball and doesn't good ol' Tom look fetching in his midnight navy velvet jacket and over-sized bow tie?
