Gary Oldman on the ‘Today’ Show

Posted on July 19, 2012

You’ve gotta love Gary Oldman. He’s been working in this industry for almost 30 years, and yet he still has not the slightest bit of patience with all the silly poledancing crap that comes with it. The reason the Americans love certain Brit actors so much is their obvious disdain for self-promotion. Sure, more often than not, that disdain is as much a pose as pretending you love being asked about your outfit, but the Yanks eat that shit up with a spoon. We wouldn’t take that attitude from a star with an American accent, but slap on some Received Pronunciation and we all go weak in the knees. The look of befuddlement on his face in the video is hilarious.

Anyway, here he is, walking the gauntlet and looking kind of chic while doing it.

Gary Oldman makes an appearance on the ‘Today’ show in New York City.

Anyone who’s read us for any length of time can tell we place a high value on simple chic-ness. It’s not that we don’t like crazy, boundary-pushing fashion or showy, attention-seeking ensembles. But so few celebrities can pull off that kind of thing that we almost always default to preferring it when they keep things clean. Is this outfit hard to wear or indicative of great personal style? No, not really. But it’s smart-looking, classic, and age-appropriate, which in this case means it can be worn by practically any adult man without looking too old or too young for him. It’s one of those “can’t go wrong” outfits.

And we love both the shoes and the eyeglass frames. Nicely done, Commissioner Gordon.
