In a post-Met Gala effort to stave off the inevitable ladystar-in-a-dress red carpet posts to come, let’s once again turn to a male star in a suit for our judging needs.

Nicely, though not perfectly done.
Is it wrong of us to point out that we think men of color rock the trendy plaid suit better than their paler brothers a lot of the time? It’s the Pee-Wee factor. No matter what you do to Jay-Z or Ludacris or Will Smith, you can’t make them look like a children’s show host. Well. Maybe Will. He can get pretty dorky when he’s excited.
Anyway, this. The fit’s problematic in areas; the sleeves and pants are both a bit too long and the lapels are bowing out because it’s too tight in the chest. We really like the earrings, but we really wish he’d only worn one. Also: a tie with slightly more contrast than that. But it’s a great suit, he looks pretty sharp, and (say it with us now) he put the effort in.
