Josh Holloway is Lost

Posted on December 21, 2011

We so wanted to do Josh as an In or Out. And we’re so never going to stop driving that joke into the ground.

Josh Holloway at the premiere of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” in New York City.

But the fact of the matter is, Josh – who is, by the way, lovely to see again – has not done the work that would elevate him to such status as would allow an In or Out post. Why? Because apparently he belongs to a cult that doesn’t believe in tailoring or something. Or he just bought that thing off the rack at Today’s Man. Whatever the reason, Josh is swimming in a suit quite a bit too large for him. Kind of a shame, because it’s a pretty decent-looking suit otherwise.

In sum: Great to see you again, Sawyer. But not like this.

      Never got into Lost, but I always thought Josh Holloway is attractive (see him on Community as the paintball cowboy). Totally agree with TLo; find a tailor!

        He is the first person you see in MI 4. I saw that and said to my companion, “This is gonna be good.”

      He’s also neglected to wear a belt, so his shirt is showing at the waist- and with a completely buttoned three piece suit that is a definite FAIL.

      You are right! Get him out of those cloths immediately!

        That was my first thought too, yuck, take that thing off mister!

      He has a nice face, but WHY the enormous suit?

    • Anonymous

      1) He’s too young to have a grizzly grey beard.  2) Is he hiding his costar in his giant suit?  Is he smuggling those bags of goodies they give celebrities in the back of his pants?  Did Sears just not have his size?  3) I don’t care.  I’ll shave his face and de-suit him lickity split.

        A handsome man is never too young for a little gray in his grizzle…… My facial hair started showing some gray at 28.  I caved to pressure and colored it in my 30″s and looked totally foolish and not like me.  Now, in my 40’s, I proudly wear my trimmed beard with the gray the good lord gave me and honey, I’m not doing too bad in the “lovey dovey” area.  :) A lot of the youngin’s appreciate a silvered Daddy.

          Agreed. I find Josh devastatingly handsome anyway, but that touch of gray in his beard is a total panty-dropper for me. Gray happens to everybody eventually. Men who try to fight it just end up looking silly. Just like with hair loss, the men who look the best are the ones who accept it and move on with their lives.

            And let me just say that I’m going to spend the rest of the day grading every man I see on the panty-dropper scale.

            Just so we’re clear, I’m never going to accept the accompanying rule for women — I intend to color my hair until the day I dye and none of you can stop me!

            • Anonymous

              :) As much as I hate double standards, I think the rule IS different for women. I’m not ashamed to admit, however, that I realized that I’m just too lazy for root maintenance every 2-3 weeks. One day when I was sick and tired of it all, I made an appointment with a colorist for some highlights and I have never looked back.

          I see your point.  I HATE the dyed beard.  But why this total grizzle at all? He’s got a nice strong jawline.  (Is he really in his 40’s?)  And just for the record, my spouse has the grizzle in his beard but he’s 51.    I love the “silvered Daddy” comment.   I’m going to steal it.  xoxo

          Just regarding age and grays, my hair started graying at 18. I’m 23 now (female) and I’ve got a nice streak going, which I LOVE.

            I’m so jealous! My mother had the Liz Taylor gray streaks at her temples for the longest time, and I remember hoping and praying that I would have them too. I don’t. Oh well.

            I have had a grey streak in my hair (right at the front like Rogue from X-Men) since I was 12. I’m 21 now and every guy I have dated has loved it.

        Why do I feel that “lickity” may be the operative word here? ;) I like the bit of grey in the beard, myself.

      His grooming looks good, I like the concept of the clothes, in terms of colors and textures and such, but why oh why is he wearing his big brother’s suit?

    • MilaXX

      I liked MI 4 but I have to say even if its not your cup of tea seeing Josh in IMAX is worth the price of admission. Just wish the wardrobe designer for the movie had helped fit this suit he’s wearing.

        There are plenty of pictures of him online with shorter hair, I guess they’re shots from his modeling days. He should definitely go back to the shorter hair.

      Suit’s too large but the vest is too short???? how does that happen?  I completely agree with the gay uncles here.  Boy not only needs a better haircut and to remove the suit, but to consider not rocking the stubble.  My DH had the same issue as a young man in his late 20s/early 30s. His beard got much grayer than his hair, much faster.  It makes you look like you’re doing the grecian formula or “just for men” thing.

      He needs to take Brad Pitt aside and tell him how to do scruffy in the face. While I normally like a clean-shaven dude, he’s pulling it off here because he’s keeping it short and trimmed.
      Now the suit..needs to come off. Right now. Yes.

      That suit is all kinds of wrong in the fit.  The knot on the tie…yowzer!  One time around to many.

      On the plus side…he looks quite handsome and well groomed, and his shoes are shined.  I like his hair and stubble. ;P

      Nice to see him again…from the neck up.  ;)

      THAT crotch is totally insane. Isn’t it like 4-6″ too low? His torso looks crazy long. Forget the tailor. Start all over with a totally different pair of trousers, and let’s try again.

      I love scruffy, I love grey in a man’s beard and/or hair, and I understand why someone would dye their hair.  But dyed hair and natural, graying beard together?  It really, really bugs me!  I think that if you’re dying your hair, you need to keep the beard shaved, or the contrast just screams “I’M DYING MY HAIR!”  

      TLo has addressed the difference with men’s hair dying and women’s, but do you guys have thoughts on the dyed hair, natural beard combo?

      • Anonymous

        His hair doesn’t look dyed to me.  Lots of men have grey in their beards with little or no grey in their hair, myself included.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          Yeah, they don’t always gray at the same rate.  In fact, they don’t even always start out the same color anyway.  My dad’s had a lot more red in it than his hair did.  Even my husband (who is not allowed to grow facial hair because it’s all sparse and patchy and ridiculous looking) has some red and brown pieces mixed in with the black, and his hair is true blue-black.

            yeah, i had an old boyfriend who had that situation with the honey colored hair and the varied grey beard.  he was a douche, but it had nothing to do with hair color.  anyway, it doesn’t matter because i am so totally over this haven’t shaved in a few days look.  if you want to grow a beard, stay in the house until you’ve got one, i say.  and keep it trimmed up off your neck.  yech.

      I never liked the Sawyer hair and am dismayed that he’s still sporting it.  Good to see him again though.  It’s always nice to see JJ Abrams recycle actors in his projects.

      I wish his hair were neatly cut like his beard, and I suspect if he smiled I’d be so dazzled I wouldn’t even notice his super-sized suit. That’s a good-looking man!

      I’m always criticizing by saying a look is less than the sum of its parts. THIS one is greater than the sum of its parts. Most egregiously, the suit is way big and his hair looks as if he’s growing out some really odd cut and refusing to get it trimmed along the way.  Nonetheless, he’s got something here.
