Ed Helms at ‘The Hangover’ Premiere

Posted on May 31, 2013

Welcome to the T Lo International Clinic for Judgement Studies, Ed. Now kindly tell the review board just what the shit is going on here.


Ed Helms attends the premiere of ‘The Hangover Part III’ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Honey, what is all this? What’s going on here? What are we looking at?

What’s upsetting about this is that someone clearly tried to put together a cute little outfit for him, outside of the default position for most male stars on the red carpet, which is somewhere in the range of “accountant on a job interview,” i.e., a blue or gray suit with a white shirt and a blue or gray tie. But how can he or his stylist not see that the jacket is ridiculously small on him? And why did they pick a very tailored jacket and pair it with full-cut pants? And why are we seeing so much of his one cuff? And why does he look like he’s wearing a ton of makeup and dyed his hair with something he got out of a sales bin at a CVS?

This is very saddening. Now we’re not even sure if we want to go see Se Beber, Não Case! Parte III.

  • It’s like he’s in character as Andy, going off to make his big break in Hollywood.

    • Carla_Charlton

      My daughter just said “he’s dressed like Andy!” My opinion is that a darker color would have done him a world of good.

      • Yeah, all that khaki is giving this whole thing a bought at Sears kinda feel.

        • drdarke

          He’s finding his Inner Fred MacMurray!

  • Donna Tabor

    It looks like he knocked over a short person and ran off with their suit.

    • Emily Smith

      Elijah Wood is pissed that Ed made off with his suit coat.

  • Annarosa

    my eyes hurt.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Fire that tailor.

    Also, I for one want to see how many posts you fellas can work “Se Beber, Não Case! Parte III” into.

    • MilaXX

      Well it’s a pretty large cast and they all appear to be doing the poledance

  • alyce1213

    Well . . . he shaved.

  • MoHub

    The pants fascinate me. They have three separate fit issues: too tight across the hips, too loose everywhere else, and too long. I can’t even get started with the jacket. Color is nice, though.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Honey, what is all this? What’s going on here? What are we looking at?

    Is the Karen Walker intentional? I hope so, because that’s all I can hear.

    • Sara L.

      Yup, I heard this in her voice, as well.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      I was going to be completely devastated if I was going to be the first to comment on the Karen Walker quote…. thrilled to see the Kittens are paying attention and/or are as ocd about random pop culture references as I am.

      “Looks like you’ve got mousse AND squirrel in there.”

  • SRQkitten

    If this was a woman, I’d say she was shopping in petites when she’s clearly not petite. Does the same thing hold true for men’s clothing? Does this man not own a mirror?

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    Oh Andy. This is terrible, even for you. You’re not an internet crying sensation anymore, you have a real job at Cornell!

  • MarieLD

    I was going to ask you guys about this… My son (15) likes to dress nicely. We were in men’s warehouse and he tried on a jacket like this … that double pocket on the one side and the whole look being slightly smaller. We opted for a similar one, but w/o the double pockets. He’s thin and average height and it fits him so well… not like darling but tall Zack who can’t wear these undersized clothes. The salesman said this is the style coming over from europe. It’s navy and a Tommy Hilfiger and my son looks great in it, though my mum thinks it’s odd because it falls at mid-butt. It’s a nice alternative to his black suit (which I ask him to save for concerts — violist). So, my question is to all of you who know this stuff… is this the style?

    Edited to add: He wears it typically with slim cut chinos.

    • alyce1213

      I’ll chime in. Your son is 15, mid-height and slim, so this style jacket was made for him (clearly it’s NOT for Ed Helms). It’s cool that he likes to dress well, takes pride in his appearance, so he can and should wear the current trends that suit him. My son is huge (6’4″) and broad, and he can’t touch this style — he looks like a giant in a tiny, outgrown jacket. (P.S. I used to play the viola.)

      • MarieLD

        Thanks. That makes me feel better.

  • claudemtl777

    eeek….you really think a stylist was involved?? If everything fit, it would be cool, but as it is….not so much

  • WendyD

    The pocket square is clearly distraught to be part of this and is trying to escape.

    • Mrs. Julien

      You’re assuming it’s real.

  • MilaXX

    Lol I seriously love uncles T & Lo. I’m sitting in the car laughing so hard I must look insane. Ed here gets an A for effort but a F for execution. Really loving the shoes.

    • Monabel

      Glad someone spoke up for the shoes.

      • marlie

        The shoes are FAB.

        • ItsDicey

          Love them.

  • bellesprit

    Oh dear! Please, some kindly gays swoop in and take this poor man under your wing.

  • Squarah

    “Honey, what is all this? What’s going on here? What are we looking at?”

    hahahaha Thanks for the pick-me-up on a shit-tastic morning!

  • decormaven

    Cute man, crappy style team. This is enough to make me take a drink, despite the “Se Beber, Não Case! Parte III” title.

  • SewingSiren

    Maybe he has a ressaca himself. He’s in Rio after all.

  • I don’t think the pants and jacket quite match, either.

    • 3boysful

      They don’t. I was wondering if the suit was sent over, but they forgot the jacket and found one to borrow on someone who’s a tad smaller. Or some flunky picked up the pants and the wrong jacket, because they alllllmost match in color, and sent them.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I love his shoes.

  • quiltrx

    My first glimpse was the horribly tight jacket…then my eye began to twitch at the *not quite the same* fabrics of the jacket and pants. Then I took in the rest of the weirdness. Oh, the horror..
    But I’ll end with something nice…I love those shoes. They look like something from a garden party in a Poirot ep!

  • TheAmericaness

    The problem? The suit is the same shade as his skin. When you’re white, that’s baaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Well, I imagine it’s not good with any skin color, it just strikes me that when you’re a pasty white person, it’s really bad. My husband just walked by and said: that color is called “corpse!”. See? My totally non-gay (ahem) husband thinks it’s awful.

  • girliecue

    Poor guy – he’s clearly been in a tailoring accident!

    • StellaZafella

      It’s what you get when you tailgate an angry gay stylist…

  • GorgeousThings

    Pee Wee Herman called. He wants his summer suit back.

  • Jennifer Ford

    If you just glance at him, he looks nice, but even then, that cuff disparity really catches the eye. I’m imagining first-challenge Project Runway designers scrambling to get him out onto the red carpet after having a $10 budget and 2 hours to make a suit.

  • Michelle Wilson

    Banjo Chic.

  • Qitkat

    Unflatttering bra color suit for him. Cute retro shoes.

  • StellaZafella

    Give this a Baptist drawl and stick it in front of the pews in a Mega-Church

  • conniemd

    The ill-fitting makes to suit look really wrinkled.

  • Erica

    Aw, he’s so goofy, it’s endearing. It’s possible, though, that that wasn’t the feeling he was trying for here.

  • NOLA_gal

    Do we think that overnight his arms became two different lengths, his torso grew 6″, but his legs got proportionally smaller?

  • VicD

    Such an “almost,” but that jacket is a DISASTER. I’m pretty sure it’s tailored for Mr. Chow.

  • barbarienne

    When he’s standing with both hands out, you can see that his right arm is slightly longer than his left. It’s common for people to be asymmetrical, but usually it’s not to a degree that becomes noticeable. But it looks as if his shirt was tailored for him, getting the sleeve length right on both sides, but then he’s in an off-the-rack jacket, which wasn’t tailored to him at all. So the discrepancy becomes really obvious.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Sorry Ed but Bradley totally schooled you on the tan summer suit with funky oxfords in Rio look. And what is with the baby sized lapels on the shirt collar?

  • random_poster

    His jacket is the same as the one Bradley Cooper is wearing, no? The color is slightly different. I’m thinking that the jacket meant for Ed was lost in the luggage, so they threw him into Brad’s at the last minute.

  • marlie

    The fit of that jacket makes me sad. This could have been such a great look. Also, I love the shoes.

    Also also, the hair SCREAMS “Presidential Candidate,” and not in a good way.

  • Janet B

    Very nice shoes he’s wearing.

  • frannyprof

    Wow. He and Heidi Klum should meet and discuss their horrible outfit choices.

  • It’s like his 25 year old, college-dropout niece wants to be a stylist and so she begged him for a chance and he was too nice to say ‘no’ and then, well, then this.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      Perfect! That’s the most logical explanation!

  • cute shoes, though.

  • Buffy

    but the shoes are fab!

  • Anniebet

    This outfit reminds me of my cat who loves to jump into paper bags whether or not they are large enough for her. It’s the color of grocery bags (yeah, I know I should take my own), it’s snug, and it’s awkward looking. My cat would love it.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      You don’t have to take your own damn grocery bags. You are providing free entertainment for your cat. And I’d bet you a pound of really nice chocolate that you attempt to recycle the cat entertainment bags when you can. Besides, your comment was hilarious and I spit out my coffee as a result. xoxoxo

  • Synnamin

    He’s CLEARLY Hungover. DUH

  • MartyBellerMask

    Sad day for the Boner Champ.

  • I’m pretty sure he’s got his pants slung over his hips too. DISHONOR.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    Here’s all that cuff you were looking for from Will Smith! Ack – the blue shirt completely doesn’t work and I’m not sure the pants even match the tiny, “look what I scored at AmVets!,” jacket.

    • Ann VerWiebe

      That translates to: If you drink, do not marry! Maybe it should say: If you drink, do not try to dress yourself!

  • kimiakay

    This is just weird. I love the color of that shirt, and those shoes are wonderful. Why is the cuff of the right sleeve showing and not the left? The color of the tie is questionable, as in, what color is it? I guess it matches his hair. But the biggest problem for me is that he looks so uncomfortable posing here. As if the clothes are pinching him in some way, or something. Fire whoever did this to you, Ed.

  • AmeliaEve

    I love those Fred Astaire spectator shoes, though.

  • Toto Maya

    Man, this reminds me. The other night I had a dream that Ed Helms had moved in down the street and was doing karaoke on his front lawn. And I went to post on facebook that Ed Helms was doing karaoke down the street! And that is all.

  • Kirsten Kirsten

    At least the shoes are fabulous?

  • Puckndc

    Don’t blame the stylist ( even though they should be run out of town) blame HIM!!…are people so stupid they would walk out like this>>>???? REALLY????

  • Crystal

    He looks sick…

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    When your eyebrows don’t match your hair color, then unconsciously you know the carpet isn’t matching the drapes, which is then instantly a giant gross out. It’s just a subtle gross out thing.

  • spinachleaf

    I can’t see the make-up but that suit would be great on him, s lightweight for a lighteight, if only he hadn’t picked up the child’s version of the jacket instead of his own.
