Most Stylish of the Week: Colour vs. Black & White


After my forced blogging break, I though it was about time to get the Most Stylish of the Week back. This is a busy time of the year for events – Fashion Week included – and there is plenty of good menswear style to choose from.
One of my favourites this week is Zachary Quinto, who finally has realised that making a statement is not about being loud. His grey and blue checked suit becomes the centre-point of his look thanks to the quiet black shirt and shoes. This and a perfect fit make for a killer outfit.
André Saraiva couldn't be more in his element in Paris. I always love how he masterly brings together formal elements – the DC blazer – with his battered boots, and the pop of colour jumper that brings out the colour splashes on his awesome jeans.
Nailing the day-time suit this week is Adam Scott, who paired his sandy suit with toe-cap tan leather lace-up and kept his look interesting with a micro-check shirt  and blue knit tie. The soft colours and texture complimented the suit without being loud. I am just not too keen on these tiny-ass button-down collars...
Chuck Bass seems to have had a comeback this week thanks to Ed Westwick's merlot Zegna suit. The accessorising here keeps quiet not to overpower the statement-coloured suit. The brown tie is the perfect on-trend finishing touch.
At first I wasn't sure about Jake Gyllenhaal's fixation with wearing the same battered boots everywhere he went. And yet they look so cool with his classic grey number. The knit tie adds an interesting texture contrast and the effect of the boots simply makes it all feel fresh.
Designer Kenzo Takada made it look so easy to be effortlessly chic. His black suit stayed formal but cool thanks to his lightweight grey cardi worn over the tie-less white shirt. I have a feeling that a (glowing) tan and grey lock of hair none of this would work as well.
It was nice to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt killing it in something other than a suit. The vintage sneakers are the best compliment to his great geometric combo of gingham shirt and checked jumper.
technically speaking there is nothing out of the ordinary about Stephen Dorff's classic number. It is the perfect fit and the subtle note of the midnight blue tie that bring it home.
