WERQ: Ewan McGregor in Balenciaga

Posted on December 11, 2012

Rare is the occurence known as a Boy WERQ. Rarer still will you find us complimenting a man in an all-grey outfit.

But we think it’s safe to say that we can all agree on this one.

Ewan McGregor attends the premiere of ‘The Impossible’ in Los Angeles in Balenciaga.

You WERQ the shit out of your silver shoes, boy. Snaps of ENVY mixed with RESPECT.

Also, maybe just a little bit of dreamy sighing.

  • Those are some shiny, shiny shoes! It’s not often he gets seriously polished but when he does it is to good effect. 

    • It’s refreshing to see such shine in a sea of “worn out” hipster shoes. Also, props for grooming!

    • RebeccaKW

       Would cut a bitch for a female version of those shoes.

  • I am not into the man-shoe trend right now, but I would push him down and steal his shoes. 

    • PastryGoddess

      And I’ll take the rest!

  • Those shoes are incredible. I’d have liked a slightly less shiny suit with them, though.

  • thecitysleeps

    UNF. I adore the shoes.

    • MissAmynae

      exactly. can we get a “UNF” category for man-WERQ’s?

  • He is just beautiful….

  • Good lord. The man can do no wrong. WERQ indeed.

    • He could be wearing a belt.  I cannot get used to the idea of a suit with no belt.  What keeps his pants from falling right off?

      •  Damn fine tailoring.

      • I can honestly say I didn’t even notice the lack of belt. But it wouldn’t bother me one bit if his pants just fell right off, so I guess I’m fine with no belt!

      • kimmeister

        Wearing the right size pants?

      • dgh

        The magnetic pull of his penis. That’s what keeps his pants from falling right off.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    That is the man version of an Oscar campaign. He wants “The Impossible” in the Best Picture run. WERQ IT!

  • Lots of dreamy sighing – over both Ewan AND his shoes!

  • Those are some fine shoes.

  • HobbitGirl

    Ohhhh, yummy.

  • Sobaika

    Those shoes are insane – I love them! He cleans up very well.

    This movie looks pretty bad. 

  • neofashionista

    Wow he looks amazingly hot but I am not so sure about the silver shoes too shiney for the please fuck me scottish country hotness that is Ewan
    Oh well

  • Tatiana Luján

    He looks like a christmas present, for me. Swoon.

  • Boy did it again.

  • crash1212

    Those shoes! SWOON!!

  • I’ll take one with everything.

  • Judy_J

    Very, very nice.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Love it when a man can work fab shoes. 

  • nannypoo

    Perfect. Everything would have been great until he added the shoes and then it became fabulous.

  • I want the shoes… just so I can look at them all the time *swoon*

  • Crystal

    Those are some beautiful shoes. 

  • Katia Alba

    He looks beautiful as always, by the way, just when i was watching the pics, his version of “Your Song” started in my headphones 😀

    • MzzPants


  • Violina23

    *swoon* I will never not adore him…

  • hell yes

  • Two of my favorite things on earth in one package. Ewan and Balenciaga.
    And I WANT those shoes something chronic.

    • Anathema_Device

      Was just in the Fluevog store on Grant St. in SF. They have a pair of silver men’s wingtips, but they are more of a distressed silver. Pricey, of course, but cool.

      • I have one pair of Fluevolg boots, lined in turquoise glove leather. I treasure them. I may just have to treat myself for Xmas, as I’ve been such a good lad this year.

        • Anathema_Device

           I was wrong. They aren’t wingtips, but they are still pretty cool. I swear I saw silver wingtips, must have been at Bloomingdales. http://www.fluevog.com/code/?p=10&pp=1&view=detail&colourID=3497

          • Bless. I will look for them!!!!

          • Oh my Lord–I love the fluevogs, and I work a quarter of a mile from there. Must. Resist.

          • Anathema_Device

            Heh. Back in the day, my nickname was “The Instigator.” Guess I still got it.

      • MilaXX

         love fluevogs, but have a hard time fitting them because my feet are wide

  • LuisaNL

    he really is made of awesome. silver awesome.

  • Those shoes are the best thing I’ve seen in a few weeks. Wrap him up, I’ll take him to go.

  • afabulous50

    Those shoes are kick ass!

  • Jangle57

    CBS Sunday Morning did a profile on him this past week.  He seems as nice a guy as he is gorgeous to look at.  Sigh.

    • I love that he’s been married for something like 18 years. And he keeps his kids out of the spotlight. Good man.

  • MilaXX

    yes! Love Ewan and the shoes gave me life. Werq

  • Introspective

    good suit, with even better tailoring, and fierce shoes. Im not mad at it. 

  • RzYoung

    Those shoes!! I love them and want them and want to see him wear them with a kilt…if you get my drift oi oi 😉 

    • Sara LaBatt

      They are polished up very shiny!  Ha!

  • mjude

    i just love him. 

  • PeggyOC

    Yep, that’s just about perfect. Very Ewan.  Polished and professional with just a kick of wacky.

  • xmixiex

    oh.  sigh.  (though i do like him better with a beard, i think.)

  • fungstyle

    i would cut him for those shoes. if they were a women’s size 7. 

  • kayleymaybe

    I wish he hadn’t shaved.  He is gorgeous either way, but I prefer him scruffy…

  • Way too shiny suit!

  • Brittany Bathie

    Those shoes!  I adore him.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    Like a fine wine.  A fine ginger wine…

  • Puck Thornton

    Ewan is just perfect. Love the suit and the shoes. I want to find him under my Christmas tree, no need to wrap him. 

  • Jessi03

    The shoes!!!  He looks adorable.

  • Le_Sigh

    After a rough morning seeing THAT is exactly what I needed.

  • JasmineAM

    Ugh this just makes me want those pewter Docs even more! I am green with envy.

  • Swoon!

  • WOW. Love the subtle male-POC with the silver shoes picking up the red in the carpet. Genius.

  • Judy_S

    I give God a WERQ for Ewan McGregor.

  • PastryGoddess


    *pant*  *pant*

  • Dreamy sighing indeed. Gorgeous.

  • I actually blurted out “LORD HAVE MERCY!!!!”

  • alyce1213

    It just doesn’t get any better than that.

  • Anathema_Device

    I only disagree on one point: I’ll be doing A LOT of dreamy sighing.

  • The HECK with the shoes; the MAN is incredible. Wow wow wow and WOW.

  • I LOVE THOSE SHOES. I need a girl version, stat! And an excuse to wear shiny silver shoes.

    • formerlyAnon

      “It’s Tuesday” is an excuse for any fine pair of shoes.

  • hillmad

    This man can do no wrong! 

  • RocknRollmom

    I am rendered speechless by those amazing shoes.  And as with others, LOTS of dreamy sighing.  Damn that man is fine.

  • Thuc Dang

    Wow, perfect hem length, bold shoes choice, terrific cut and fit. FLAWLESS HAIR. A big mercy MERQ!

  • gsk241

    He looks great, of course, and it is refreshing to see a man star who still owns a razor!

  • E. D.

    Good Lord he’s hot.  WERQ.

  • Where can I get those shoes?

  • throwaneyeonthis

    Yummy.  I swear Robert Palmer is channeling through Mr. McGregor in the last picture. 

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Well, Ewan almost always looks good, but this elevates him into DAMN!  You WERQ that suit, honey!

  • Snailstsichr

    How did you know I needed a dose of pretty right now?? This so fits the bill. If I had a vote on the Nobel prize, you gents would have my vote because I instantly felt peaceful when I saw these pics.

  • julnyes

    Lovely as usual (would like to have seen a bit of sleeve at the cuff
    but that is minor) he works shaved and bearded with equal aplomb.

  • I want shoes like that. Badly.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    He just gets better and better and better. Bastard.

  • First time I’ve ever felt myself getting aroused at the sight of mens shoes. That Ewan McGregor is inside them just about takes my breath away.

  • I wanna be him when I grow up!

  • formerlyAnon

    Totally on board with the WERQ. My GOSH that suit is awesome, and I salute you guys for overcoming your grey-on-grey fatigue.

     I was not 100% wowed by the reflective metallic shoes last time I saw them on someone on this blog, but I am 110% wowed here.

  • CeeQ

    Crown him MAN OF THE DECADE for being able to rock silver freaking wing-tips!

  • decormaven

    Thanks be to Saint Hubbins, the Patron Saint of Quality Footwear. Damn fine shoes!

  • Ooooooh, that is one yummy WERQ…. {swooon}

  • Qitkat

    It is the shoes, isn’t it? Because WOWSA.
    Tie is too boring though.

  • mmc2315

    Yum.  Properly hemmed pants….

  • erinbinek

    I don’t love him, but those shoes are KILLA.

  • Trisha26

    Gorgeous and no more facial hair – YAY!

  • Kate4queen

    Exactly 🙂

  • up with pod people

    yes. also UNF.

  • frannyprof

    *licks drool off of chin*

  • Ana_ragu

    The only thing that interferes with my fantasy is the oh-so visible wedding ring on his finger. Sigh.

  • UglyTalents

    My menopause just reversed itself. Thanks to these pictures, I am ovulating again. A Hanukkah miracle. Thank you, Tom and Lorenzo.


  • I want to marry him. And then just show him off.

  • elirt

    My gawd, he is aging so damn well.

  • Those SHOES. That face. That suit. {LE SIGH.}

  • He looks fantastic! Those shoes are freakin’ awesome! And we must admit the fact that another dude wearing this outfit (think Bradley Cooper or Gerard Butler) would look like a total douche. But Ewan totally WERQs it and works it. Sad to see the beard is gone, however. I thought he was adorable with a beard. 

  • littlemissstrange

    I don’t like it. I want him with fucked up hair and scruffy face with an artboy scarf and some boots. And a puppy. THAT shit is hot.

    But I can’t deny that he still has pretty eyes. And the shoes elevate the look a thousand times higher than what it would’ve been.

  • snarkykitten

    those shoes are made for looking up ladystars’ dresses

  • pax540

    Damn Gina. May I have a slice o’ that?

  • guest2visits

    Just Ewan with his usual charm.  I’m on board with the reflective footwear.

  • TieDye64

    Dayum, he looks GOOD! And I’m digging the shoes, too.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    OK, now I must go get a tub of ice cream and eat it.  Those shoes are so perfectly shined it hurts.

  • I know not one other man who could pull those shoes off. 

  • AnnaleighBelle

    The world is changed because you are made of ivory and gold. The curves of your lips rewrite history.

    Silver shoes and blue eyes.  He makes me happy to be of Scottish descent.

  • ankali

    Jesus, he’s aging well. I… wow. Wow.

  • How does he manage to dress better than 90% of the men out there with access to the same resources?

  • unbornfawn

    Lots of that dreamy sighing going around………….

  • I’m not QUITE sold on the shoes. But the rest…. delicious.

  • Methinks T-Lo are blinded by the shoes.  And envy.  Tie point is visible under the jacket button and is crooked and hands in pockets for pictures.  They would’ve pointed those minor infractions by other manstars.  Not saying it’s not a WERQ though b/c DAY-UM!!!  : ] ~~~~

  • Those shoes … THOSE SHOES!!

  • RoxieRider

    Scrolldown WERQ.

  • allaboutthewalterbenjamins

    Grey is the color of my true love’s suit.

  • The shooooooooooooes! PERFECTION.
    Also, as much as I love the MCGregorbeard, this look required a shave, and the guy complied.

  • Zippypie

    Oh HELL YEAH!  Ah, my day is now complete.  Thank you, boys!

  • Oh my God.  How can someone who is naked so much be so good at clothes?


    •  If only we could see up his pants.

      • We don’t really need to. He’s naked so much his penis practically has regular office hours.

  • jmorino08

    Le sigh… 

  • Ancyra


  • Louise Bryan

    Do silvery shiny men’s shoes really reflect up?

  • zbkat

    The most beautiful boy in the world.

  • zbkat

    Oh, Santa, please get me those shoes!

    • Cole Hahn also makes a similar pair in gold metallic.

      • Beth Kattleman


  • quiltrx

    Oh, you beautiful thing!!!  And those shoes are absolutely fabulous…they make me want to rock some shiny boyshoes and make everyone at work have a staring problem.

    (and hair is fab, as always)

  • Vickiefantastico

    Now, THAT’S a WERQ! I am bowing.

  • I am in love with those shoes.
