    I like that he’s experimenting, but I just cannot unsee him as Count von Count.

    Ah! Ah! Ah!

    • Elaine Lang

       TWO!    TWO…EMPTY…SLEEVES!   

      Ah!   Ah!  Ah!

      • MaryanneGirl

        ^^ HAHAHA.

      • Oh God, my sides hurt from laughing!

      • cleverlady

        OMG… fabulous.  Thanks all of you for participating in the wonderful play.  One, two three funny lines!
        Ah, ah, ah indeed!

    • fursa_saida

      This is why I wish he woulda left his hair looser and just put the jacket actually on. So simple, such a difference.

    • Y’all are awesome.

  • VicksieDo

    Looks douchey to me, and tooooo tight toooooo

  • Interesting… not sure if it’s in a good way or not, though.

  • lrhg

    I could (maybe) deal with that jacket. I cannot deal with that shirt that he needs to give back to the eight-year-old he stole it from. 

    • I’d like the jacket better if he were actually wearing it.

      • Alyssa


  • JauntyJohn

    Fitted — I’ll even allow snug (probably not great when he sits) but sharp.
    But best of all — come on, its different and interesting without drifting deep into the Land of the Cray.
    I vote Yes.

    • VioletFlame

       A yes from me too. Love the color combo that makes his eyes pop. love the fit and hem of the trousers.

  • clevRcat

    Cute, but why not put the jacket on?

    • I’m guessing it just doesn’t fit.

      • Argh!! I think you’re right! Nonfitting clothes are my pet peeve. Also, his pants are an inch too short.

      • StillGary

        The jacket wouldn’t fit me either, but I would also find away to trot it out ,, maybe as a scarf..

  • Annabelle Archer

    No, Kevin. No. Don’t worry, you’re still King of the Hipsters, but to be clear, no.

  • Sobaika

    He looks very dour.

  • Rand Ortega

    If he had worn the jacket, I would be completely behind this look. Slung over his shoulders like Master Thespian from SNL– No.

    • zuzu


  • ms_kat

    I like the color, which does great things for his eyes. But how he is wearing it makes him look like a douche.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Hunter Green is my all time favorite Green shade and that could look fabulous if he wore it properly. If I’d been there on the sidelines I’d have been screaming, “Put the damned jacket ON, son!”

  • allj

    Yikes. Put on your damn jacket, McHale. You look like a tool. And is it just me, or does he need to groom the eyebrows and shave?

    • margaret meyers

      It isn’t just you. 

  • AlexisPayne

    Kevin, why aren’t you wearing your jacket?

  • Fordzo

    He looks like he’s retaining water and couldn’t fit into his rental, so he just put it over his shoulders because it was too awesome to waste.

  • formerlyAnon

    I want to see this with the jacket on. I can’t believe it didn’t fit, but this looks odd. And with the jacket on I wouldn’t be suspecting that shirt might be a little tiny bit too snug.

    Overall, I’d bet that the ensemble was good, if decidedly on the dapper side.

    (Obviously he’s built up some sartorial capital in my mind.)

  • MaryanneGirl

    …the fuck is he doing? 

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Little Lord Leprechaun… 

  • Imasewsure

    I think the jacket was the wrong size but he insisted on wearing it anyway. Applaud the effort and love the way his face is changing as he matures…. a cutie in a fun (albeit smileless) outfit!!

  • Zippypie

    It’s The Riddler!!!  YAY!

  • Way too tight. And something tells me that’s why he’s not actually wearing the jacket. Pity, because the look has great potential.

  • Damien W

    He’s either the most confident heterosexual man on Earth, or he’s a mess secretly in search of a dress.

    Grab a chair, Kev. (But I still love you)

  • Drew Macaulay

    Evil magician realness.  I approve. 

    • SorayaS

      I hated it until you made me see it in that light!

  • OrigamiRose

    Is the green jacket an homage to his namesake, the Boston Celtics legend?

  • HOT

  • margaret meyers

    One step over the line.  I think you can wear a green satin tuxedo, and maybe you could even wear a “shrunken” green satin tuxedo…but you can’t walk around wearing your green satin shrunken tuxedo over your shoulders without looking like a douche. 

  • man, these boys are MINIATURE! 

  • I respect the effort, but this looks oddly backup dancer to me. Very costumey.

  • Trisha26

    Does anyone remember a Steve Martin skit (he was maybe Italian?) where he wore his coat this way because he didn’t know how to put his arms in his coat sleeves?

  • portlandmermaid

    It looks a little matadorish to me. Is he posing before or after he killed the bull.

  • Douche. Make sure the jacket fits & put it on next time. The only person who can carry that sort of look off is Gwyneth P.

  • It looks like he just pulled his shirt out of its JC Penney packaging and put it on in the car on the way over. 

  • unbornfawn

    Does the Tux jacket not fit?  That is the only excuse. If you are going to wear a green tux jacket. Go all the way. Own IT!

  • Derek_anny

    If he’d been wearing a vest, I would be fine with the jacket on the shoulders.  Because my problem is the shirt and it’s wrinkles.  Hide the shirt and all will be accepted.  Maybe a different bowtie.

  • Annabelle Archer

    He’s no Gwyneth Paltrow, amiright?

  • jw_ny

    put the jacket on…it’s not a cape.  you look like an pretentious dork. 

    otherwise, I have no real issues with this look, although the shirt is too tight.

  • PhillipWilde


  • quiltrx

    Is it terribly wrong that, from the top of my scroll-down, I desperately wanted this to be a CAPE???

    Either wear the cape or put the damned jacket on, son.  All or nothing.

    • Oh yes, if it was a cape it would be darling! Capes need to become a thing again.

  • sunnycalif

    He could play the Return of Pee Wee Herman!

  • Jecca2244

    him not wearing the jacket doesn’t scream chic. he looks silly and too self important. 

  • MilaXX

    HoNey tone the diva down. If he was wearing the jacket, I’d like this.

  • Aww, give it up for McLovin.  The draped jacket looks a touch douchey, and he needs facial hair management (even a short neck-beard makes God kill kittens, son), but overall I like it.

    • Sara LaBatt

      Hold on was he McLovin??

  • Funkykatt

    Big thumbs up to his stylist. 

  • MissAmynae

    He could be Aaron Rodgers’ younger brother….

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Hipster doofus.

  • butter nut

    Twink Mafia, coming this Summer on Logo TV

  • nannypoo

    Phantom of the Opera, elf-style.

  • And for his next trick, at midnight he turns in to a bat and flies away.

  • lrober03

    Shirt is making him look a lot heavier than I imagine he is.  

  • This could be killa, but boy…put your sleeves on, you look like a douche. And unclench. And go up a size on the shirt.


  • TieDye64

    Heart, Stars and Horseshoes, Clovers and Blue moons, Hourglasses, Rainbows, and tasty Red Balloons! They’re magically delicious!

    Only thing missing is the green hat and the big smile.

  • schlomosteel

    I’m not sure the shirt is too small so much as he just took the pins out of it as he was putting it on. Steam your shirts, dudes.

    •  Exactly. At least hang it up in the bathroom while you are showering. Only excuse for fold marks like that is in old school Royal Navy trousers.

  • He would totally wear the heck out of this suit if only he put his arms into it.

    • l_c_ann

      Maybe he recognized that the fit didn’t fit. 

  • CarolinLA

    And this is why ladies don’t wear jackets on the red carpet.

  • decormaven

    “First you see my watch, then you don’t! And for my next trick, I will try to unclasp my death grip on my arms. Wait… wait.. it’s not working…”

  • Noshmek


  • Tamara Hogan

    With his arms in the sleeves and wearing his black glasses, this could have been A Look. 

  • Did he actually stand there with his hands that way the entire time?  Boy, is he inching his way to my Irrational Hate list.  🙂

    • Yes, he did. Its seriously weird.

  • Ruth Preston

    Pee Wee Herman on prom night. 

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    If this were the Gay Golf Master’s Tournament, hosted by The Continental…. perhaps.   

  • mhleta

    Gay cabaret magician.

  • marilyn

    Shiny green jackets are costumes, not part of suits.

  • Sara LaBatt

    He looks acutely aware that his shirt doesn’t fit, so he’s keeping the hands clasped in the death grip and looking tense about the face.  I assume the same is true about the jacket.  I love the color choices and he has amazing eyes, too bad he couldn’t get clothes that fit right so he could be comfortable! 

  • You are NOT a 90 year old little old lady! Put. your. jacket. on.  I can’t, my eyes are twitching

  • traceyishere

    Shirt is too tight.

  • LinXGUA

    If he wore the jacket, he’d know what to do with his hands.

  • I appreciate that the photographer felt a need to zoom in so close we can see the hint of unibrow growing in.
