Hot Guys In Cool Suits: Our Ode to Dudes Dressing Outside the Box


When we’re frantically Renting the Runway two days before yet another wedding while the men in our lives just pick up their one black suit from the dry cleaners and are good to go, we have to admit, we envy the simplicity of guy style. But despite our appreciation for a good-looking guy in a perfectly-tailored black tux, it can be a little snooze-inducing to watch male celebrities wear the same suit time after time while their female counterparts have all the fun. Thus, we’d like to dedicate this post to the hotties who hit the red carpet this week and had a little fun with their style while doing so.

From left: Ansel Elgort, who already proved he was no schlub during the Fault In Our Stars promotional tour, stepped his style up a notch at the London premiere of Men, Women & Children in a graphic-print Dior Homme suit, paired with a skinny tie and a pair of white-soled derbies, also from the line, for a bit of a sporty touch. Next, James Marsden, who has gotten style props from us in the past, turns it out yet again in a teal Tom Sweeney suit, which he further jazzes up with an antique blue striped shirt and matching tie (at the Best of Me L.A. premiere). Then, of course, there’s Robert Downey, Jr., who is never content to bore in the style department. Leaving The Late Show with David Letterman, Downey Jr. strikes a pose in an Etro three-piece suit with oxblood accents (including some very shiny high-tops).

Guys who have been flying more under our style radar also brought the intrigue this week. Jeremy Renner attends the premiere of Kill the Messenger in a sharp navy pinstripe three-piece Dolce & Gabbana number worn with hipster accessories. House of Cards hunk Sam Page spices up his Kent and Curwen gray suit (worn to an L.A. dinner for the brand) with a boldly-patterned button-up and high-shine loafers. And finally, Gracepoint‘s Kendrick Sampson hit up PEOPLE’s “Ones to Watch” party (he’s “The Old Soul“) in a navy plaid Sand Copenhagen suit worn with a coordinating plum sweater from the line.

Whose style is your favorite? Which guy is your favorite? Share your thoughts and feelings!
