IN or OUT: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Ermenegildo Zegna

Posted on April 12, 2013

We love ourselves some Kingslayer, but we’re not convinced on this look.


‘Game of Thrones’ star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau attends the premiere of ‘Oblivion’in Hollywood, California in Ermenegildo Zegna.

Ermenegildo Zegna Spring 2013 Collection

No, not at all. The sweater just doesn’t go, and it’s making him look stuffed into the outfit. We like the idea of the suit for him, but if needs to be fitted a little better. The color looks great on him; especially with the tie providing the all-important pop of color. But it’s just too slick and suave a suit to be paired with a math teacher’s sweater. Save that for a sportscoat and pair of jeans, Nikolaj. We bet you’d rock it.

Oh, and perhaps rethink the shoes. We love blue shoes and own blue shoes but we wouldn’t pair blue shoes with this outfit.

Thoughts? Opinions?

IN! It’s eye-catching and different and I can’t argue with that. Do me, Kingslayer. Do me.


OUT! Hideously ugly mismatched colors and a shiny, poorly fitted suit. Why are we even discussing this?



Michelle Williams failed to charm the Precious Unborn Fawns, who voted her messy Target clothes OUT.

    Big feet. Hot guy. The rest should go away.

  • …he has clothes on? Oh, sorry, I didn’t notice.

    I know I’m not supposed to be biased by the hotness of the man wearing the clothes, but I can’t help but give him an IN. He could wear stapled-together newspapers and I’d still give him an in.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    still. JAIME.

  • Mismarker

    I do not watch GoT and do not know this man from anything else. That being said, he is free to kick those blue shoes off beside the bed. IN.

  • EzzyV

    He is Prince Charming and he can wear whatever he wants.

    Ok, he can’t. The jacket and sweater is not working for me.

  • Andrew Schroeder

    Hogwarts uniform.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      guuuuurl Severus Snape would beg to differ.

  • I vote for combining the statements: “Hideously ugly mismatched colors and a shiny, poorly fitted suit. I can’t argue with that. Do me, Kingslayer. Do me.”

    • TieDye64

      Oh yes. My thoughts exactly. Especially the latter, ha!

  • PastryGoddess

    The problem is that he has on clothes. Take them off and things would be MUCH better.

    OUT The man probably has on an undershirt, shirt, sweater, and jacket on. Where are they holding this? Outer Mongolia. Too much..too stuffed

  • The sweater needs to be sent to The Wall.

    • drdarke

      Jaime, you slipped out of the house before Cersei saw you, didn’t you? And take off Tyrion’s jacket – it doesn’t fit you at all!

      This is what happens when you let single straight men dress themselves – nothing matches, nothing fits, and the overall effect is akin to a mustard&chocolate sandwich with a side of natto (it’s a Japanese dish made of fermented soybeans, that tasted to me the one time I ate it like a sour kitchen sponge).


      • capybara_cafe

        He’s married. His wife must not have any fashion sense, either.

        • barbarienne

          Presumably his wife gets to see him naked. If I were her, I wouldn’t care if he dressed badly, as it gives an excuse to insist he strip.

        • drdarke

          That’s just – frightening, @capybara_cafe:disqus .

          My wife is hardly a fashion plate herself, and she’s never send me out looking as bad as that!

          • capybara_cafe

            Maybe she’s out of town. Hopefully she has a good excuse for letting him go out of the house like this.
            Also, re: your assessment of natto; more like chunky style, refrigerated vomit.

          • drdarke

            RE: Natto – yeah, that works as a flavor comparison, too, @capybara_cafe:disqus . It is, my Japanese friends tell me, an acquired taste – but unlike sushi or Calpico, it’s also a taste I have no interest in acquiring….

            Married men baching it dressing themselves – even worse than single straight men dressing themselves!

          • capybara_cafe

            I’m told it’s quite delicious when mixed with rice and soy sauce, but I am rather incredulous.

  • Fix your collar. Get your suit fitted. Then we’ll talk. Or something.

  • That suit does not suit him at all. I hate the color on him, the sweater is awful, just no.

  • snarkykitten

    fucking neckbeard

    • Eric Stott

      I cut him some slack on that – he might be in the middle of shooting something, especially with that nasty hair.

    • Toto Maya

      I’m going to pretend it’s require for his role in GOT. It makes sense according to the books.

  • acevedob

    Out. The shoes are hideous. What is wrong with celebrities? All that money and you dress like an office worker? Ay madre santisima!

  • Janet B

    I love blue shoes!

    • Me too. And blue shoes in the bright shade of the model’s sweatshirt might have been better. But the sweater? Lovely boy, no. Even with the lip-biting sex-face which is VERY nice.

  • formerlyAnon

    Out. Strongly influenced by the fact that I don’t like that cut of jacket, even if it fits perfectly. He’s built too square to get away with a shiny suit (or if he’s not, the fact that he *looks* square is a complete indictment of the suit), the sweater is the wrong color.

  • Out….. but if he bites that bottom lip anymore I may have to take a moment….

  • SublimatedRage

    OUT! He can still do me though……

  • Actual Disney prince.
    He could be wearing a caftan and I’d still probably vote him IN.
    What can I say, sometimes I’m shallow.

  • I don’t want to, but I have to give him an out, lol. He’s gorgeous though.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Oh no terrible outfit BY ALL MEANS TAKE IT ALL OFF RIGHT NOW.

    • I second that, and there’s too much product on your hair… WE SHOULD TAKE A SHOWER.

      • MrsAtaxxia

        ….And the motion is PASSED.

  • Eric Stott

    “math teacher’s sweater” … definitely – my first thought was that he looked like a somewhat cooler than usual teacher. He’d rock the classroom, but it isn’t a red carpet look.

  • IN. Honestly didn’t even see the suit. Was it a suit?

  • MilaXX

    The suit as shown on the model appears to be more casual and the sweater just doesn’t work with it. The blue shoe yeahgads! are hiddy & make his feet look 10 ft long. Let us not even speak of the hem.

  • filmcricket

    I was all “Well, that’s not toooo bad,” until I saw the model. Then it was “Oh. Well, that’s much better, isn’t it?”

    I don’t know this guy from Adam, so I don’t know what would suit him better, but this is… not great. Out, I guess.

  • alyce1213

    This would look entirely different if the jacket weren’t buttoned, which is a problem itself — it’s too small.
    Is that a stitched crease on his trousers? I can’t tell – there’s a lot of stitching on the suit.
    I’m torn between in and out. I do love the colors.

  • Sobaika

    Right? Not ashamed of how shallow I am at this moment.

    IN due to being a hot Danish piece of sex who actually bothered to get dressed up for this (even if he got some details wrong).

  • fursa_saida

    THIS SHOULD BE SO GREAT ON HIM. I’m unreasonably annoyed. I’ve grown to love Jaime Lannister lately and it’s rubbing off on my feelings about the actor.

    • Toto Maya

      Seriously, I didn’t think twice about this guy until I read all of the GOT books, and then he was suddenly incredibly hot to me.

      • fursa_saida

        It’s not even a hotness thing for me, actually, more of a “oh Jaime, you poor thing, you have no idea who you are and your life is full of transgressive gender dynamics, that must be hard, let me pat you on the head before I send you off to hatefuck Brienne.”

  • RebeccaKW

    Out. The sweater is ruining it for me. It’s a good sweater, just not with this.

    He looks so much like Charming from ‘Shrek’ here.

  • Beardslee

    Out. The sum is less than its parts.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    It tries to be nerd chic hiding under an Italian suit, but the fit falls at Italian grandpa. OUT.

  • prettybigkitty

    In theory this is good. In execution not so much. Sorry Jaime, this is OUT.

  • girliecue

    That’s so cute you put this to a vote, Tom and Lorenzo. You know your BKs vote with our reproductive organs. But for my dearest T Lo, I’ll vote as objectively as humanly possible: OUT of those clothes and IN to my bed, Kingslayer!

  • ScarlettHarlot

    You can’t spell Kingslayer without “in,”so there you go. Yum.

  • kittenwithaquip

    Boys, are you slipping, or am I seeing phantom neck beard?

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    In. To encourage non-grey suit wearage. Sweater notwithstanding, of course.

  • crash1212

    OUT. But he could still do me.

  • Oooohhh… I want to say IN, but it’s a skosh too tight. I like the suit and the tie, but not the sweater. And I honestly didn’t even notice the shoes.

    A tepid “in,” just because I don’t want the Kingslayer coming after me.

  • padma sallah

    Well, not do me persay but IN because I do like the colour of the suit and what I can see of the tie. That sweater with this lovely suit tho. JUST NO. Can we just OUT the sweater an IN the suit?

  • Qitkat

    Once again the (undoubtedly younger) BK’s/TLO know someone I don’t, but how awesome of a name for a designer is Ermenegildo Zegna?

  • Alyssa

    Out, unfortunately. I love the idea & color of this suit, but it’s not deployed properly here. I wish there was no sweater, and no blue shoes.

  • Diego!

    OUT, get naked

  • PeggyOC

    Out. Too much going on. Keep the suit, ditch the sweater.

  • Chase

    That tiny tie knot makes his head look huuuuge.

  • Hetha Innis

    Noticed the sweater right away and the lack of a good fit in the jacket and the pants. It’s a suit for an Andrew Wakefield type of body and just doesn’t do him any favors.

  • gabbilevy

    Out. Which is sad, because this feels like him grasping at Fashionista (fashionisto?). Try again next time, Kingslayer.

  • CatherineRhodes


  • Jangle57

    Sorry, he may be cute but that doesn’t excuse what he’s wearing. OUT

  • Kathleen B

    IN he looks hot even though your critiques are valid.

  • j_anson

    Out. This man approaches Matt Bomer levels of physical perfection. HOW did he find a suit that made him look like that?

    • conniemd

      First glance at the thumbnail and I thought “oh goody, more Matt Bomer”

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    He can put his blue shoes under my bed any day. I don’t care what he’s wearing he is in,in,in.

  • ann greiner

    I’m not a dude, but I love the blue shooz. Granted, the sweater needs to go, but the shooz? Me likey.

    • Thank you for this comment, because I didn’t even notice the blue shoes (too busy noticing the blue eyes) the first time around. They ARE pretty cool.

    • alyce1213

      I’m soft for blue shoes too, but I’m not absolutely sure from the one picture that these are blue. They could be shiny black reflecting blue, which there seems to be a lot of in the step and repeat.

  • nannypoo

    The jacket doesn’t fit the model either.

  • conniemd

    out. I could see the sweater if he was in Moscow or Norway, but Hollywood?

  • mechanical_orange

    Out. The suit isn’t working for me. Even still, do me, great Dane, do me.

  • Out. Handsome man, but the suit and sweater just don’t work. And I disagree, I don’t think the colors work for him at all. Sorry TLo!

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. The pants need hemming. The suit doesn’t fit. He doesn’t need the sweater and he looks like he is a mess from the neck up.

  • OUT, and also, WTH? This is even more confusing than RD jr’s leiderhosen (because, of course RD jr wears leiderhosen).

  • Dam_Angel

    In-because he made an effort to look stylish and unique. The color palette is pleasing but the pieces fight each other.

  • Imasewsure

    Out but I appreciate the effort. Send it to Bowie or some other skinny b$tch

  • luciaphile

    Out. Way too tight

  • his trunks are too thick for those pants (from one thunder thigh to another)

  • Out. Looks like a suit for a skinny boy. See picture of model.

    • formerlyAnon


  • julnyes

    Out for all reasons mentioned… and I don’t know if I’m in the minority on this, but I’d pass on the Kingslayer and take Tyrion (Brainy is sexy)

  • Out, it’s the sweater, I just can’t…

  • Here we have that rare specimen, the Male Scroll-Down Fug. For shame, Kingslayer, for shame! O to the UT! Take it off like Ned Stark’s head!

  • drdarke

    OUT because he’s clothed like that, ladies – if he WAS naked in your beds, that would be a definite IN.

    See what I did there…?

  • trisker

    OUT. suit doesn’t fit, sweater is wrong, and the only good things, shirt and tie, are almost hidden.

  • ojosazules

    Hideous. Out.

  • marilyn

    Out. Suit too small, sweater does not go.

  • mmc2315

    [sorry if this double-posts]

    This suit requires a Masters, if not a PhD. OUT.

  • maggiemaybe

    Ditch the sweater, unbutton the coat… and come to Mama! 🙂

  • Pamela Hunt

    Sorry, I didn’t get past the top of his collar…what look?

  • finnishmaria

    Noooooooooo. The sweater makes the top look too heavy and the metallic-ness and the extreme crease on the pant makes it look very light on bottom, and it just looks weird.

  • flamingoNW


  • Trisha26

    OUT. Interestingly, the jacket seems to fit the model the same way, as if too tight.

  • unpious

    Out. The fit + that sweater = no. It is nice to see him trying different things out, though. It could be worse – it could be another goddamn grey suit.

  • AngelaGreen

    I’m sorry, I was distracted by the fact that he was eye-fucking me in every single picture. Outfit? Not great. And he could tone down the porn face a little, too.

  • carolynmo

    No. Not even Jaime.

  • rumcg66

    OUT, but he can still do me.

  • Haley Buchanan

    I think I like the suit, but the sweater is a DEFINITE no. It ruins the look to the point that I can’t even imagine what it would look like without it.

    OUT – But I still also vote for “Do me, Kingslayer, Do me” 🙂

  • jw_ny

    OUT…the pants hem…the sweater…ugh.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the sweater has to go and the jacket is too tight because of it so OUT, that model is certainly giving David Bowie face though….

  • BayTampaBay

    He needs to hem his pants and take off the sweater.

  • Anniebet

    He’s sooo in. See, he matched his sweater color to his beard. He’s coordinated! Oh… hm, those pants? Okay, he’s out, but dammit I don’t care.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Not hideous, but out for exactly the reasons you enumerated. Stuffed, not fitted well, blues shoes weird…

  • OUT! i don’t even like the colour of the suit on him, let alone all the other styling choices.

  • It’s an OUT for me: the suit is ill-fitting, the sweater makes him look uncomfortable, and the (cool) shoes aren’t working with this. He’s a handsome man though.

  • Out. And totally unrelated to the whole look, what’s up with his nose. All I can think of is Pinocchio. Seriously.

  • demidaemon

    I agree that he is a handsome piece of man. However, I am going to be objective here (control you lower parts, people!) and say that if he had ditched either the sweater or the jacket, he would have been perfect. AS is, he is, unfortunately, OUT. We can all console him when he gets the bad news. 🙂

  • Toto Maya

    Sorry Jaime, but that jacket doesn’t fit due to your gigantic, pulsating biceps and massive chest… what were we talking about again?

    I bet he smells nice. Is that creepy? Whatever, he plays Jaime freaking Lannister, creepy shouldn’t bug him.

  • subwaycars

    He has the start to two very good outfits (in a dream world wear the suit is actually fitted to him) but they definitely don’t go together. Yet I still can’t vote him out. Alas

  • gracedarling

    OUT. I’m imagining a chunky knitted turtleneck in the bronze of the tie. I think he could swing sexy 70s maths teacher like no-one’s business… but this iteration is just so half-arsed.

  • jetpackdino

    Oooooh I hate it, I simply hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. When a celeb walks out in front of the cameras looking like this I just KNOW his stylists secretly HATE him. I know it with every fiber of my being. TAKE THAT SWEATER OFF.

  • JuliaInBlack

    He’s dreamy but sorry, OUT. Meanwhile I will hop in the line of folks volunteering to strip and and shower him.

  • spinachleaf


  • That is retina-searingly bad. OUT.

  • kathrineb

    The grey vest or sweater is not good. I don’t know how I only just found out this guy is Danish with a name like Nikolaj. Anyway I thought that was cool!

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    That smile/smirk in the second picture.. dayum. Almost made me forget I am firmly in House Stark!

  • Puckndc


  • i am transfixed by the little divot at the end of his nose & can’t see anything else as a result

  • capybara_cafe

    I was just wondering if those shoes were blue, or if my monitor is on crack. NOT a good color choice with that suit. I really wish he hadn’t put on the sweater, i think he’d work the hell out of this suit without.

  • OUT. Bad sweater. Hot dude.

  • NoGovernmentName

    The whole outfit is a bust. OUT, but he is super cute otherwise.

  • MzzPants

    Well, kingslayer can still do me. But not dressed like my grandpa’s shuffle board buddies, he can’t. OUT.

  • guest2visits

    If he’s going to wear that sweater – he should lose the jacket altogether. The fit of the suit looks a mess;
    the color’s not bad. Giant blue shoes are distracting.

  • lilibetp

    Looks good other than a few things. The jacket is too tight. The pants are too long. The sweater doesn’t go. The color of the tie doesn’t go with the color of the suit. The shoes belong with another outfit. He looks sallow and I can’t tell whether his hair is quite clean. In other words, I appreciate the fact that he shaved his neck.and put on a crisp white shirt.

  • I like the Clinton-esque lower-lip bite he’s got going… kinda smarmy in a charming way. Change the color of the sweater and for all that is holy on this earth can someone please, PLEASE, properly fit the length on the man’s pants so that he has to take them off! For the love of god!

    So I say totally IN and OUT Repeat. Over and over.

    You asked. 😀

  • fashionzombie

    OUT. Jeez.

  • Louise Bryan

    OUT! I don’t know who he is, and he looks like he has a broken nose, and his clothes are poorly combined, especially the shoes, argh! my eyes.

  • KAP

    There was a suit? Where?

  • carnush

    yeah…i guess you’re right, it’s OUT. but he’s just so damn dreamy.

  • mozzer0906

    OUT, the sweater is so cringe worthy that it ruins the entire look

  • OUT

  • KatrinaAtienza

    Out on the outfit but DAMN SON with the lip-biting and the smizing and the “I werq it, ladies”! Be still my heart!

  • lalahartma

    Ha! I would have said NO, had I saw this earlier. 🙂

  • That tiny tie is hilarious.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    OMG that poor man. Who dressed him in that? He needs to take it off now. Alllllll the way off.

  • DesertDweller79

    Oh, I so want to give him an in, because he is so gorgeous. When I saw him I thought, “Oh, close…” But when I saw the suit on the model, I became sad that he was wearing that stupid sweater and not that blue shirt the model has on. Or, anything but that sweater, really.

    So, I’ll reluctantly have to say: OUT. It’ll be okay, Kingslayer. You’re still pretty.
