Matt Smith at the Polo Club

Posted on July 25, 2012

We don’t have a “Guy at the Polo Club” feature here, but maybe we should. Because any setting that can take King Hipster Dork  (said with love) Matt Smith and turn him into this:

‘Dr. Who’ star Matt Smith at the Audi International Polo held at Guards Polo Club in Egham, United Kingdom.

…is a place we want to visit. Love the socks, Matt.

    Wow. i did not think it was possible for the wee hipster lad to be hot, but I stand corrected. Still no David Tennant, but looking fine Mr. Smith!

  • Sara__B

    THIS is the epitome of effortless chic.

    • PinkLemon


  • Polo clubs are cool.

  • Lauren Bradshaw

    I HEART HIM SO MUCH!!!  This just makes him even more favorable.  Can’t believe I was able to like someone after the 10th Doctor…

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Had a geekgasm this morning when I found out that Ben Browder is going to be in the new season of Doctor Who.  Thanks for rounding out my Happy Whovian day with lovely shots of Mr Smith.

    • MilaXX

       World’s colliding! Ben Browler & Matty!

      • CozyCat

        All they need now is to find a  part for Claudia Black….

    • RebeccaKW

       Ben Browder.  I almost orgasm just saying his name.  Love.

    • That is the best news I’ve heard all day. I’ve been missing Ben SO MUCH!

    • Reneesance

      EEeee! Ben Browder I <3 him so much.

       Hello, Tardis, meet Atlantis.
      That sounds like a fanfic title I’d love to read.

  • I saw some other photos from this event a few days ago and I was DYING. Any man who doesn’t like to wear a suit, needs to see these photos. He is so so beautiful. 

    I’m telling myself those are TARDIS blue socks and no one can convince me otherwise. 

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      I got Tardis Blue hair extensions put in yesterday, they go quite well with ginger.

      • samitee

        Now *that* is ultimate Ginge!

  • janetjb


  • Nice. He is normally adorable want, now just want.

  • Hermione_Granger


  • Rand Ortega


  • Ho-ly shit.

  • I love a man who can pull off a three-piece suit (that I would subsequently like to pull off *hint, hint*).

  • Vaniljekjeks

    He is too perfect.  I love the socks, too!  

  • call_me_schmeg

    pardon me while i go to the bathroom to clean up my SQQUEEEEENERDGASM!!!!

    oh god, that was good…

  • I bet he’s drinking Pimms.  so awesome.

    • Adriana_Paula

      I thought so too!  Ah, Pimm’s in the summertime…

    •  If he were really the King of the Hipsters it’d be Sipsmith Summer Cup, not Pimms.

  • Evan Hart

    I ask this with love, as I adore Matt Smith, but is his jacket a big large? I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s unbuttoned, but it looks a bit big…

    This is, of course, nitpicky. He looks awesome otherwise.

  • I think I just fainted.

    Ok, I’m back now.

  • He looks adorably fabulous. He should pin this photo to the inside of his closet every time he’s tempted to wear a stretched-out-neck t-shirt.

    He’s also going to be on the cover of EW and there are going to be FOUR, count ’em, FOUR timey-wimey, science-y specials on about Doctor Who, starting August 4th, on BBCAmerica. And then the series will start up again and I will be a very happy woman. 

    • MilaXX

       DVR is already set. In fact I have an alert set for many of the WHOverse peeps.

  • Another gorgeous, skinny British boy? TLo, are you trying to MURDER ME? If so, please send Tom Hiddleston along with the coup de grace.

    • Another vote for more Hiddleston! Tom Hiddleston and Matt Smith are my Brits of Perfection these days.

      •  And Benedict Cumberbatch. Swooooooony.

        • Maggie_Mae

          More PR for BC’s “Parade’s End” has been hitting the ‘net.  The director was quoted as calling it “Downton Abbey meets The Wire.” Based on some truly excellent novels by Ford Madox Ford, with a script by genius Tom Stoppard, it will show in September.  Or maybe August.  On BBC2–& on HBO at some time!  BC does look well in Edwardian dress (or uniform)….

          Concerning Matt: As much as I love him as The Doctor, these shots give me hope for his later career….

  • I’m not usually a fan of his aesthetic, but uh…. yyyyyum.

  • lucasuk82

    Is he drinking a Moscow Mule?  Fabulous!

  • Judy_J

    He looks adorable!  I too love the blue socks.  Very well done, Matt!

  • Oh my god I’m dead I died died dead

  • There’s something off about the fit, but he still looks dashing. And the socks MAKE the look!

  • He’s drinking a Pimms.  Now I want one…

    • We should make a batch for all of us.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Did he get eyebrow implants?


    • kimmeister

      I was kinda wondering that myself!

  • Welp…I’m done.  *thud*

  • TheOriginalLulu


  • GorgeousThings

    Where’s the “like” button? Even better, where’s the “Love” button? For Matt Smith and for TLo!

  • Oh my goodness. This is the first time I’ve ever found him attractive (like, sexually attractive, not “I guess he has a nice face” attractive). 

  • MilaXX

    The shoes are still hipster, but it’s nice to see he knows how to dress appropriately for an event.

    • CozyCat

      The slightly bored attitude is very hipster too.

  • AlexisPayne


  • granddelusion

    Me, too! Love the socks! And he sure is rocking that suit.

  • LauraWL

    He’s drinking a Pimm’s Cup! I don’t know why I find that so delightfully “English leisure class.” I do think he looks less terrifying with sunglasses on covering up those eyebrows. 

  • formerlyAnon


    Suck it little hipster wannabes. He’s wearing socks and he’s hotter than 10 of you.

    SOCKS!! And lovely, non-ironic, color coordinated socks, at that.

    ETA: Um, sorry. Got carried away. Forgot to say he looks wonderful in his lovely suit, fitting the way I like ’em (skinny boys in loose clothing FTW.)

    Oh, and thank-you, English weather. Almost anywhere in the U.S. he’d be risking heat stroke, and look all pink and sweaty.

    Socks, socks, loverly socks! (I DO hate that preppy boat shoe look when it’s extended to loafers or dress shoes, truly I do.)

  • rivula

    ah, three cheers for the good Doctor!

  • GenieinTX

    I effing love the doctor, but never have found Matt hot – until these pics.  I like big boys (like Joe Manginello’s) way better than skinny boys, but Rowr! Mr Smith

  • Beardslee

    The man knows how to wear a suit and I love the Fred Astaire socks.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    now that is how you do matchy matchy.  if i were a heterosexual i would hate this suave, skinny, pasty, pretty ovary magnet.  the imgur and reddit girls absolutely freak over this guy — they get downright filthy and are quite vocal and graphically detailed about their thoughts when his face pops up on the feeds.

  • Oh, hello, Doctor!

  • fursa_saida

    I had a good friend in college who, toward the end of his time there (and he took seven years to graduate, long story) got reeeaaally into colored socks. He was dyeing them himself.

    What I’m saying is, much respeck for a bright sock.

    I still like Matt Smith better in his hipster duds, though.

  • RL McGruder

    He is not even close to being my type, but THAT mutha looks good!

  • ClevelandburbsBeth

    My lipstick is on his right shoulder.

  • nannypoo

    Lately we’ve been seeing a lots of guys in suits with dress shoes and no socks. Here is a guy who looks great in a suit with dress shoes and beautiful socks. I’d take this one any time.

  • frankystein123


  • guest2visits

    I want to know whats in his elegant glass, – I spy a wedge of lime, ice? Is that foam? Beer, tea…? 
    Inquiring minds want to know whats on the liquor menu at British polo clubs.
    This all looks good on him. The socks are fun.

  • From now on, I’m hopelessly in love with Matt Smith. He’s got coolness oozing through his pores, and I can’t not love that.

  • holdstillnow

    One of the few men in the world who could temporarily turn me, and these photos seal the deal.

  • crash1212

    He is so perfect in all ways…and now I want a Pimms Cup.

  • omg. My ovaries.

  • I lurve him. 

  • I want to visit any place Matt Smith is

  • quiltrx

    That hair!!!! Love it.  Very dapper, Mr. Smith.

  • WERQ that classy shit, Doctor!

  • TomBord

    new wave 90’s meets up w/ some blue boy chic ………………………schhhhwing! 


  • “King Hipster Dork.”

  • just looking at these pictures is making me blush.

  • TieDye64

    Freaking fabulous! I love this so much. Wow!

  • samitee


    yes please.

  • The 3 piece suit makes me think Ianto/Dr slash fic.

  • The boy look good. I love the socks too. But please straighten your tie. Thank you very much.

  • Jellybish

    I will never be converted from Team Tennant, but damn. He looks hot.

  • mjude


  • PeggyOC

    And the Pimms cup.  Way to embrace the English Summer vibe, Matt.

  • siriuslover It’s almost as if these photos are GQ cover shots! He looks stunning and chic! Love it!

  • littlemac8

    Do you suppose that’s a Pimm’s Cup in his hand?

  • Cathy S

    Holy cow!

  • Tardis Socks!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Looking good never looked so effortless-well done, King Hipster Dork!

  • Toto Maya


  • Anathema_Device

    Love the King Hipster Dork cleans up this well. Good lord, he looks freaking amazing here.

  • KathKo

    Fabulous !
    He might favor the hipster looks, but suits really suits him (pun intended).
