Ewan McGregor for GQ UK

Posted on August 03, 2012

Well kittens, on this unusually boy-heavy day here at T+Lo, which started with the rumpled-but-trying Zach Galifianakis, continued with the EXTREMELY-rumpled-and-NOT-TRYING-AT-ALL Jon Hamm, we’re gonna close out with a boy who went in a different direction. T Lo fave Ewan McGregor continues his leather period for GQ UK.

The new face of British outerwear Belstaff, Ewan McGregor, is featured in the September 2012 issue of GQ UK magazine in an editorial titled ‘Dresser’ photographed by John Wright and styled by Grace Gilfeather. 


On his love for the brand: “I’ve worn Belstaff for years and I ride a bike every day. I love the nostalgia of old motorbikes and the brand’s heritage goes right back to the Twenties. There is stuff in the archive that I would happily wear on my bike today. So I thought a professional relationship would be a really good fit.”


You’re welcome.

And with that, we’re off to have ourselves a weekend. Enjoy yours, kittens.

    God he’s made for those clothes. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

      And they all look like they came right out of his wardrobe … he actually dresses like that.  Sigh. Drool.

  • Nicole Chubb

    I love my husband, but I’m still available for you, Mr. McGregor. In fact, I think he’d be all for it.

    • DeborahJozayt

      My husband tries to sell me for $3.50 and a plane ticket to anyone who asks if we’re married. I’d gladly walk for Ewan Mcgregor if he offers that $3.50!

    I watched the video this morning when Ewan tweeted it and I about passed out.

    He has great personal style. Plus he’s a humanitarian. His work with UNICEF is inspiring. Watch his motorcycle docu-series “Long Way Round” and “Long Way Down” – he’s incredible.

       Thanks for mentioning these, they are where I fell in love him AND his friend, Charlie. The footage of the massage/pummeling the two of them got in Kazahkstan is one of the most enjoyable things I have ever seen documented. Please look it up on Youtube. He just has so much charisma, and he is so full of joy!!! I love that in a man, SUCKER for a laughing man…

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        I also loved those series.  God, what a man…  LOVE the pic of him laughing. 

  • norseofcourse

    That last shot = Ewan McGregor action figure.
    And I want to order one. 

    • JackieOBlue

      Life size, please.

    Smiling Ewan makes my all twitterpated.  *sigh*  YUM

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

       Thank you for using *twitterpated*. What a beautiful word!

  • crash1212

    I love the word ‘motorbike’ and I love the sweaters – and, last but not least – I love Mr. McGregor and think he’d be lovely to have a cup of tea with.

  • Anathema_Device

    Oh the smiling picture just does it for me. Not that the other shots aren’t great, but oh, that smile with the twinkly eyes. Sigh

    • turtleemily

      I was going to say exactly this, so I’ll just be ditto-ing you, here.

      • dress_up_doll

        Ditto here, as well. That smile just kills me.

        • http://surelysonsy.blogspot.com/ Jessica | Surely Sonsy

          same. it’s just a stunning picture all around.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      In the true spirit of kittenish generosity and fair play, I will happily share him with you.

      • Anathema_Device

        Okay, so, should we go the mediator route or have our lawyers work out the custody agreement?

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

           I think we’re both such reasonable adults that we can come up with a solution that will (ahem) satisfy all parties concerned.

      • librarygrrl64

         You’re quite the humanitarian.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          One does one’s little best.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            If Ewan ever becomes too exhausting, please do let me know!

    • RebeccaKW

       Yes, I was scrolling down and at every picture just sighing and staring at him dreamily.  And then the smile photo comes up and I gasped.  Man, oh, man.  I think I’ll be bookmarking these photos.

  • Trisha26


  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    That smile is perfectly devastating. Happy weekend, TLo!

  • Jenna Gordon

    oh sweet something of something. he is just so delicious. i’ll take two. 

  • Zippypie


  • jilly_d

    uhhhhhhhhhhuuuuuuhhhh. he has what I’ve always called “crinkley eyes”; they crinkle up at the corners.  It makes me sweat a little.

  • JuliaInBlack

    I would hit that like the fist of an angry god… he is a perfect representative for Belstaff too. Thank you, TLo!

    • librarygrrl64

      “I would hit that like the fist of an angry god”

      Aaaaand, new catchphrase….adopted. :-)

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Thanks!! (must clean lick spots from screen)

  • Pennymac

    Oh, that smile that starts in his eyes. ROWR! 

  • Kate4queen

    Yum :) Thank you. :)

  • SpcilK

    Easy On The Eyes Rider!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5Z2CUJA7CJI3M7MUMQOVJDB3XQ Christine

    So pretty :) sigh

  • MilaXX

    I FLOVE Ewan.

  • Rebecca Johnson

    Allow me to present my GIANT LEFT FOOT! 
    The smile picture makes it okay, though. Swoon.

  • kimmeister

    The belted jacket looks like a woman’s jacket.  I love the closeup shot though.

  • pugluv

    He is just amazingly gorgeous…I don’t care what he is wearing (can we take a peek at wearing nothing at all???)

  • PastryGoddess

    OMG OMG OMG…HOT! That smile! Those eyes! That leather snakeskin jacket!


  • greymain


  • LuluBI

    Cute, but can I just say, he’s no David Beckham …

  • MsOlympia


  • Vaniljekjeks

    I do enjoy a man in tight leather and snug sweaters with a bit of stubble.  Thank you, dears. 

    • librarygrrl64

       Meow, me, too. 😉

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    Good lord I LURVE this man. The second photo from the top just got me a little hot and bothered. 

  • quiltrx

    Mmm, nice!

  • alyce1213

    I adore him and forgive him for getting involved in this horrific photo spread.

    • boweryboy

      This.  The leather is a bit too much.

      • librarygrrl64

         It’s biker gear, so I give it a pass.

        • boweryboy

          Exactly.  For me it’s a bit too much so if that’s your thing then I’m sure you’re in 7th heaven.

          • librarygrrl64

             OMG, no! 😀

            I kind of hate motorcycles. Too darn loud and dangerous for me. I just meant that, while head-to-toe leather is not my thing, I don’t mind the use of here because it is, after all, a spread for biking leathers. Which can be stylish but are basically protective gear.

  • http://profiles.google.com/grandiva1968 e jerry powell

    Should be GQ Undresser.

    Still quite lovely to look at, even clothed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=677547537 John Hodgins

    Okay, I’m going to go there.  The third pic — standing legs astraddle — the lighting is doing interesting shadows and forms on the left side.  You can thank me later!  :-)   Now you can’t unsee it.

  • frannyprof

    Next time, show him on his bike, please.

  • Joyce VG

    Oh my lordy he’s so sexy.

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

    That man only gets better with age.

  • http://twitter.com/marared Jaime


  • http://twitter.com/scriptgrrl scriptgrrl

    Most actors don’t know how to pose for editorial. Thank God we have Ewan! He can have a side career as a model.

  • msdamselfly

    He’s adorable

  • cleep1000

    It’s weird how some of his photo shoots fail to really capture how gorgeous he is. The close-up one with the scarf is great, the others not so much. If you haven’t seen the movie “Beginners” you simply must. Not only is a great script with great actors, but Ewan just shines. I really fell in love with him in that flick.

    • http://twitter.com/LaRomaBella KaMH

      That movie is WONDERFUL on so many levels. The scenes with his character and Arthur – whoever thought of that wanted to make all women melt into a puddle of goo. 

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Can a movie do much better than to cast Ewan AND Christopher Plummer?

  • Alisa Rivera


  • PeggyOC

    Oh good grief. That grin. Gimme, gimme, gimme.

  • http://twitter.com/LaRomaBella KaMH

    Sweet baby Jesus, he is gorgeous. 

  • guest2visits

    Seriously Ewan, you don’t require badass boots and leather; – just a little smile.

  • Le_Sigh

    After a long hard day, all I needed was the closeup of him smiling. 

  • ballerinawithagun

    I wear a Belstaff. They actually make jackets to fit petite women. My husband even likes Ewan because of his riding abilities.  

  • http://twitter.com/younglibrarian Katie Dunneback

    Mmmmm…thank you! He looks upon me every day thanks to my READ poster of him.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    just wow.  i want him, i want his clothes, i want to stop eating for about six months, i want to eat six gallons of chocolate ice cream.  i want a winning lotto ticket, i want space aliens to re-engineer my body so that bacon causes manorexia.  i want a jawline.  it is a good thing i am alleric to cats, this is where i’d start hoarding them.

  • ccm800

    love very piece! ESPECIALLY the croc jacket. 

  • http://twitter.com/Mylynka Mylynka

    Gods he is GORGEOUS!!  Thank you dear, dear Uncles T & Lo!  *le sigh*

  • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

    He looks like he’s playing a modern Hamlet.

  • littlemissstrange

    Thank you, Daddies! :)

  • KathKo

    I just can’t with the spread leg shoots.
    He looks like he has some internal troubles.

  • http://profiles.google.com/phyllis.craine Phyllis Craine

    *fans herself*….oh baby!

  • http://twitter.com/Kathy_Marlow Kathy Marlow

    He’s just adorable. Love him..

  • Cousin_Rose

    Nope, sorry, not feeling it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YAMNQMUGFM4NNSPAQLZRODSD5I Angela

    If there was ever an argument for human cloning, Ewan is it!

    • dharmabum8

      Yes! I’d totally buy myself one.

  • RzYoung

    That man can wear clothes.

  • librarygrrl64

    He is such a compact little package of Celtic goodness. :-)

  • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead


  • TieDye64

    Hot damn! Thank you T+Lo.

  • GorgeousThings

    Ewan MacGregor… le sigh!

  • dharmabum8

    Perfection, thy name is Ewan.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Leather becomes him….need we say more?

  • formerlyAnon

    To me he’s a prime example of “just an ordinary guy” good looks.

  • LinXGUA


  • Maddie_Faddenoid

    He looks great.

  • margaret meyers

    Some of the more luxurious pieces have a high Douche Quotient, even when worn by Ewan.

  • boomchicabowwow

    LOVE that smile!!

  • elirt

    Can he be any less charming?! Sigh… He looks great in those clothes (and without!).

  • AthenaJ

    Wasn’t really feeling it until I got to the pic of him grinning – then my ovaries quite literally jumped with joy. The fiancee is not going to know what hit him tonight… Thank you TLo!

  • Susan Crawford

    Oh, that bad-boy grin. I do love me a naughty type in leather, and if he rocks a Scottish vibe – I’m in the part of heaven where the good parties happen!
