Rogues Gallery | Luke Evans

17:00:00

The latest installment of my Rogues Gallery features the Welsh wunderkind Luke Evans. A jack of all trades, from action to singing, his cinematic and fashion credentials have him firmly on the Hollywood A-List.

Fresh from his role as the dastardly (and dashingly handsome) Gaston in the live-action reboot of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Luke Evans next role sees him explore the complex personal life of Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston.

But casting his CV aside, lets focus on the real deal here; what he wears! 

Perhaps mostly widely recognised on the red carpets for his sharp black-tie ensembles, Evans is a man who know the power of a good suit and is rarely seen in public appearances not suited and booted.
From classic formal wear to sharp, modern tailoring, Evans is the perfect clotheshorse for menswear designers to show off their sartorial skills.

However, man cannot live by suiting alone. There will always come travel and down time and that is a time for casuality and comfort - but never carelessness.



What is of note is that even when he's dressed down, he's still dressed well. The fit, the colour palette and the composition of the outfit is well thought out without being too on-the-nose.

Here's my high-street edit, inspired by some of the key looks that Luke has rocked so well.

Remus Uomo £349
A checked suit (window pane or otherwise) is a smart investment; suitable for most formal occasions. Remus Uomo's offer of separates means you can add an additional pair of trousers which is always the first thing to wear out in a suit.

This striking inky blue paisley suit from modern tailors Noose & Monkey is ideal for a wedding or a New Year's Eve party.

Rayban £125
You can't go wrong with classic and they rarely come more classic than Rayban Clubmaster sunglasses. I think the tortoiseshell frames are softer and will work with more complexions.

All Saints £380
Sleek and simple, this leather bomber from All Saints will carry you through the autumn winter season. A menswear classic, look to the likes of Marlon Brando or James Dean for style inspiration.

Reiss £295
A double-breasted coat as worn by Luke doesn't suit every body shape and can be harder to work casually. This great mac pairs with work wear during the week, or with a rollneck and jeans at the weekend.

Burton £18.75
Not just for the summer months, a pair of stone or light coloured jeans can work in AW, paired with navy or any of the warm autumnal colours.

A man is more than his clothes, as Mark Twain said, "...naked people have little or no influence on society'. So do not allow your style to be dictated by trends or what you see on people you admire, rather, let it inspire you. It should become an extension of your personality not a substitute for it.
