WERQ: Gabriel Mann

Posted on October 01, 2012

It’s been far too long since we’ve done a Boy-WERQ, don’t you think?

We might be on a post-Revenge premiere high, but we think Gabriel looks pretty much perfect here:

Gabriel Mann attends ABC’s Sunday Night Dramas ‘Revenge and ‘Once Upon A Time’ Premieres Red Carpet Event in Hollywood, California.

We’re not normally fans of the tie matching the shirt, but something about this really works for us. Maybe it’s the jeans and boots, which bring the expectations for the outfit down a little bit. We suspect we’d like it a lot less if it was a conventional suit. Besides, he deserves major snaps just for showing up in a linen jacket and NOT looking like he slept in it. That’s a nearly impossible feat. You WERQ those ultra-skinny pants, boy! Jealousy snaps!

      what is it about a well-dressed man that makes me want to take all his clothes off?  seems contradictory.

        No, no, it’s a natural trajectory. Taking all his clothes off is a service you provide to well-dressed men to prevent them from being seen in clothes that they slept in. Cause you can’t be seen in clothes that look like they were slept in. Right TLo? Simple as that. You’re a service provider.

         Ass Kicking Adviser has a good point. I’d also say, though, that particularly when a man is looking hot in a good suit, I quite like to imagine getting down to it when he’s still wearing at least part of it… What’s a torn open shirt between friends? 😉

    • FourPointOhMyGracious

      Those shoes are total clod hoppers, though. 

    • SewingSiren

      Super cute. I also love the way he plays his character on Revenge.

      Now there is a nice tall drink of awesome.

    • PRFan

      Man, he is working the skinny boy jeans – and genes, actually.

    • Sobaika

      Looking very suave. Suit is overall very nice but I wouldn’t complain about seeing his abs again…

      Nolan is so adorable!

      ooh mama like!

      He looks really good, although I’m not a fan of the matchy tie to shirt here.  That seems more dressy, which contrasts with the skinny black jeans and boots, which are more casual.  I like the shirt, just wish he wore a different tie…perhaps a plaid or print.  

    • Le_Sigh

      Yum.  I’d like one of those please.

      It’s the fashion twin of Tilda Swinton. They should do a shoot together.

      • Tatiana Luján

        Or have a kid.

    • MGMcD

      J’adore. You can tell he is a former model. And as much as I love Nolan, I wish they’d lose the moptop hairdo, I like seeing more of Gabriel’s handsome face.

      Why hello Mister Mann.  How do you do?

    • kimmeister

      Ha, I didn’t even notice that he had a tie on at all at first.

      Nolan you are my favorite sidekick and you can work a matching tie like no other! XOXO!

    • http://www.twitter.com/allforusophia AllForUSophia

      I love him so! There are no words!

    • In_Stitches

       Contrarian Corner time-the blazer and jeans are too similar colors, he’s not making that tie work (not than anyone could), and the whole effort is devoid of color.  He does have great hair though.

    • Bree The Vole

      For some reason my first thought was “omg, Justin Hartley and Michael Rosenbaum have bred!”. But yes, he looks great.

    • SpcilK

      Cute, cute, cute!

    • Jessi03

      Mmmm.  Yes, Nolan!

    • Judy_S

      I just started watching Season 1 of Revenge on Netflix (I have caught up enough that I can now look at the recaps in your archives). Although Madeleine Stowe’s face is a huge attraction, I keep watching to see what Nolan will do/say next. He is ridiculously brilliant. And looks it here.

      Nicely done!  WERQ indeedy!

    • Vanja

      I still can’t believe he’s 40! He sure pulls that boyish look off with ease.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Cannot deny he looks like a delicious slice of lean mansteak, but why is his hair 3 different colors?

      • meowing

        “Lean mansteak.”  Consider that phrase stolen!

    • StelledelMare

      Seriously, how is this man 40?

    • formerlyAnon

      He is very good-looking.

      That is all.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BMEASIKJSVE6YP3DE2VLJA5CUU JulieJ

      I just find him incredibly hot.

    • natalia osiatynska

      I love the play-by-play of what WERQs here, and I absolutely agree – both on first glance and upon longer viewing.

      However, I have one quibble, which may be a function of how short I am, and the fact that I’ve grown accustomed to sleeves that hit mid-hand for me: I absolutely hate the way a long sleeve feels if it doesn’t at least cover my wrist entirely. So I notice it on Gabriel immediately, but then I guess it doesn’t read as uncomfortable here (perhaps because he looks so very comfortable); rather, it reads as grown-out-gangly, which of course makes him seem even more boyish, I suppose. So, not a quibble, after all, maybe?

    • SignLadyB

      I find him very hot also and don’t believe he plays a 20 to 30 something so well, however I think in the third picture here, where he is smiling, you can see some of the early 40 lines, particularly at the eyes and his smile. Not complaining–I have him beat by 20 some years and as I say I find him quite attractive.

    • alyce1213

      As long as there’s a shirt (and tie) sticking out of a slightly too-short jacket, there will not be a WERQ.
      I like matching shirt and tie sometimes, but I’m not crazy about it in this case.
      He’s awfully sweet-looking, though, isn’t he?


      Love him!  He has aged SOSOSO well. I am a newbie to Mad Men (can’t wait for season 5 dvd!!)and cannot believe how much sexier he looks now then when he was on MM.  
      He kills me on Revenge!  Gets the best lines and clothes!!!

    • MzzPants

      Well, isn’t he cute??

    • neofashionista

      this is the best he has ever looked to me…. and the hottest

    • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

      In the show I do not find him attractive at all; in photos, PR or otherwise from the show, I find him extremely attractive — especially here. Woof!

    • ccm800

      These poor fellow have no idea how to pose. So I guess they just thrist the hand in the pocket. Sigh. 

    • aristida_girl

      go Nolan! looking fab..

    • quiltrx

      He must have ridden standing in the Popemobile, with the steam option on, to keep that jacket looking good. :)

      He looks adorable, sort of a good-boy, straight-laced version of the Ewan type.

    • Zippypie

      Hand in pocket – NO!  He could’ve been, would’ve been…..

    • TieDye64

      Freaking love this! Yummy perfection.

    • Linderella

      Looks great, but seeing as how he used to be a model, he should know to remove that hand from his pocket.

      I do not understand how it’s possible that he’s 40.  He’s totally ageless, except for a few smile wrinkles.  *sigh*

    • Hai Yen Nguyen

      The shorter haircut really does something for me. I have never, ever lusted after a celebrity so hard before. I have a full-blown Gabriel Mann crush. He is delicious and foxy. 

    • ChristinaRi

      Love the hair!
