Chris Hemsworth in Ermenegildo Zegna

Posted on April 24, 2013

We’re wiped out after that Mad Style. Have a cup of man and talk amongst yourselves, darlings.


Chris Hemsworth attends the 2013 Wool Awards in Sydney, Australia in an Ermenegildo Zegna three-piece suit.

We suggest not staring too long if you’re prone to seizures, but aside from that, enjoy.

  • There’s a “WOOL AWARD”?? I love the suit, and I love the pattern, but yes, when I look at the full-body shots, it starts to make me dizzy. BUT… really interesting suit, and it fits great. He’s never done it for me, but I still think the boy looks fab.

    • Apparently there is in Australia!

  • Vickiefantastico

    Why is his hand orange???

    He looks great, and I have to say, I dearly love the name of that designer or design house.

  • gabbilevy

    Worth the seizures.

  • carnush

    His suit doesn’t photograph really well, does it? He does nothing for me, regardless.

    • I was just thinking that. But I bet it looks fantastic in person.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    Holy moiré pattern!

  • korilian

    The suit doesn’t photograph well. He on the other hand..

  • And now I need a dramamine. That was troubling to look at at.

  • Wow, the visual feedback is jarring. Otherwise? Yumminess squared.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Amen, brother! Not many of the younger man stars Wang my Chung, but Mr. Chris is a wonderful exception.

    • StellaZafella

      Looks like he’s “phasing in” on the transporter…Beam me up, Mr Hemsworth, indeed!

      I’m positive that tiny Houndstooth check looks scrumptious in person.

      • drdarke

        Okay, no surprise that I’d totally go gay for Chris Helmsworth – but could he finish beaming down first, please…?

    • barbarienne

      Just stay focused on the eyes and manly jawline.

    • I stared long enough and saw Waldo.

  • lbl

    He’s really fond of grey suits, isn’t he?

    • AmandaCathleen

      Seriously. This look is just crying out for some color.

      • anotherkate

        But what about his dreamy blue eyes? 😉

      • lbl

        All of his looks are. I think if you flip through his tag every suit he wears on the red carpet is in a shade of grey. Maybe he’s trying out for the role in “Fifty…”

  • Is this fabric the male version of sheer fabrics on women with the “I didn’t know what it would look like photographed” excuse?

  • I can see his Jon Hamm 😉

    • TAGinMO

      Hoo boy. How did I miss that the first time?

      • Beth513

        Perhaps the magic eye print was distracting you? I missed his Thor’s Hamm-er the first time too 😉

    • OrigamiRose

      Oh dear. I can’t unsee that.

    • carpediva

      “Hammaconda”, make way for the “Hemaconda!”

      • Rand Ortega

        I wonder with that print if you cross your eyes & stare at it for longer than a minute will it start slithering?

  • That suit is fit spectacularly.

  • MilaXX

    Shame. I bet this looked really good in person. It’s just one of those patterns that go wonky on camera

  • titaness25

    My school uniform’s shirt was kind of like that pattern. Pretty in person- painful in pictures. We all look permanently smudged. Eta- but hawt. Like Mr Thor here.

  • Needed this midday enjoyment….

  • another_laura

    Op Art! Where are your cuffs, young man, and why couldn’t somebody take half an inch off that hem?

    • Good call on the cuffs, but I think the hem is an acceptable length.

  • RebeccaKW

    Woof. He is delicious.

    The suit pattern is a bit odd in photos, but I love the pattern mixing and he does look good.

  • Pity about the way the pattern strobes – makes it hard to appreciate the very fine details. Very fine indeed.

  • OH. OH. OH. What a man. What a delicious, well-dressed man. Yum.

  • Tracy_Flick

    That tie! JC Penney circa 1997. The rest looks great.

  • Karen Maslowski

    Why would any knowledgeable stylist use a pattern that moires in such a way in photographs?

    Otherwise: hubba, hubba.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      I know, talk about heart-throb. He looks like he is literally throbbing.

  • jetpackdino

    Can’t get past that button problem there. Such a beautiful guy… Dang I need to button that vest lol

  • KSpence

    I’ll take two, please.

  • TSkot

    Pity, looks like he’s lost his Thor beef.

  • gsk241

    Hi, Thor! GO HOME AND SHAVE!

  • sado


  • lobsterlen

    A whole suit made from chef pants material.

  • Jessi03

    Nom nom nom.

  • luluransom

    Did he put it in the dryer?

  • formerlyAnon

    Weird effect there in the photo. Hope it wasn’t as apparent in real life.
    He looks great. I like the choice of tie, but there’s something I’m not loving about the cut of the jacket. I don’t remember him as approaching slope-shouldered. But maybe it’s his stance. Or the optical illusion.

    Whatever. Challenging day so far, thanks for posting something nice to look at that takes less time than Mad Style.

  • Back collar is waaaay to far from the neck…looks sloppy!

  • PastryGoddess

    I’m hypnotized

  • That’s the reason they tell you no houndstooth when you’re on tv or taking pictures. It’s awful! That being said, yum yum. I’d rather see him sweaty in a pair of almost falling off jeans. Just sayin. 😉

  • Danielle

    I’ll bet this looked great in person. Here I’ll just have to picture him without the clothes on.

  • I love houndstooth, but man, that’s making me dizzy.

  • surfergirl70


  • the fabric doesnt “pixel” well, but… WOO!

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    *purring noise*

  • carpediva

    Too. many. clothes. That is all.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    The suit colors do nothing for him, but boy oh boy is he a STEAK.

  • Zorkness

    I wanna have his babies…

  • Louise Bryan

    That fabric is doing some k-razy things — op-art to the max! Best Chris should remove some of that houndstooth for the preservation of my well being. Maybe we can even find a cape if he gets chilled.

  • I feel so bad about the moire patterns. Because I think that’s making people not notice the great suit. Or maybe that’s the hunka hunka in the suit. 🙂

  • ankali

    He’s delicious, but I can’t get behind wearing an optical illusion, even if it’s not his fault.

  • poggi

    Very nice, and I really appreciate that he actually tries and doesn’t just rely on his innate hotness.

  • B_C_J

    The vest is too short and even perhaps ill fitting and the whole look is a bit monochromatic once you factor in the tie

  • If you stare at his crotch for 10 seconds and then look away, unicorns will start coming out from the nearest wall.

  • H2olovngrl

    Maybe a solid vest? That’s a whole lotta houndstooth.
