Armie Hammer in Gant by Michael Bastian

Posted on June 25, 2013

We give him all the credit in the world for trying here…


Armie Hammer makes an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ to talk about his new movie ‘The Lone Ranger’ in New York City in a Gant by Michael Bastian herringbone linen suit.

But at the end of the day, if the suit don’t fit, something-something that rhymes with “fit” and gets across the point that you should choose another suit.

Damn. We have to work on our rhyming aphorisms.

    If the suit don’t fit-get rid of it ?

    • asympt

      If the suit doesn’t fit, the outfit’s shit.

      • Kate4queen

        LOL I was trying to be polite 🙂

      • drdarke

        If the suit don’t fit, you must acquit – ?

        Sorry – having O.J. flashbacks here.

        • dixie murphy ross

          I so thought this exact same thing!

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Well, at least he shaved this time.

  • Jessica Freeman

    If the suit don’t fit…tear it off like Superman for the world to….no wait, wrong movie.

  • I just don’t think linen suits or dresses ever work in NYC. Particularly if you are going to walk anywhere. That’s when they start looking like the linen suits that men of my grandfather’s generation would have worn in the south. Wrinkled beyond imagination but that was OK since very few people had A/C.

    Also: the cut across the shoulders looks wrong and the lapels make me sad.

      I avoided linen for years, because I couldn’t stand looking like an unmade bed. But I’ve finally come to terms with it and have been wearing linen dresses and skirts when the mercury rises into the 90s. I feel like, “Hey, everybody knows linen wrinkles, and everybody knows why I’m wearing it anyway — because it’s incredibly cool and breathable.” The streets of NYC are not air-conditioned, and linen is part of my summer survival strategy.

      But my dresses fit me a lot better than this suit fits poor adorable Armie.

      • It’s not the wrinkles that bother me. Most people would know that my clothes are wrinkled because they’re made of linen. The reason I don’t wear the fabric is the bagging and stretching. You leave the house all put together and by the end of the day, your outfit is saggy and mis-shapened.

      I hate soft suits. I know it’s summer, but suits should always be crisp. There is no version (except maybe seersucker) that looks acceptable when it’s melting.

      I have seen plenty of crisp looking suited guys in unairconditioned subways during rush hour in August. It can be done. Armie has a choice: suck it up, or just say, “Screw it, I’m going in khakis and a polo.” He’s doing morning TV, not an audience with the Queen.

      • Yes, it’s called “Summer Wool” and it works. And has for nearly a century. Meanwhile — Linen? at Buckingham Palace? Or perhaps you meant when presented on the Royal Yacht moored off Monte…

  • marlie

    He can barely button the jacket! GAH! Someone *really* needs to be fired.

    • drdarke

      @disqus_zkPCxYvnya:disqus – Judas H. Priest! I just got three sports jackets back from Men’s Wearhouse that fit a lot better than that suit, and I’m not a hunky young movie star by any means!

      You’d think this wouldn’t be hard, wouldn’t you? I mean, you’re the young and handsome star of a couple hundred million dollar movie – and you can’t even get a jacket that fits you right?

      • marlie

        I couldn’t agree with you more. And when he has the resources – the money, the staff, the access to IMMEDIATE tailoring – to ensure that his clothes fit properly.

        • drdarke

          You would think these stars could have immediate tailoring, wouldn’t you, @disqus_zkPCxYvnya:disqus ? But how many outfits have we seen that don’t remotely fit the women or men wearing them – shortish dresses that hang low on the ladystars, suits on the men that are usually so tight they look stuffed into them with highwater pants (or cuffs pooling about their shoes!), straps on gowns or shoes that don’t sit right so the women look foolish.

  • RussellH88

    I have those socks.

    • Annarosa

      and they are the only good thing of this outfit

    • Happy Socks, right?

      • RussellH88

        Yep. I own quite a bit of Happy Socks, along with some Simply Unstitched socks.

        I’m actually wearing the polka dots socks right now.

        • I have the polka dot socks in another color pattern! They’re the BEST.

    • DilettanteDeconstructed

      His socks are adorable. Aaaaand I think that’s the first time, ever, that I have called a man’s socks adorable.

  • isapaiva

    If the suit don’t fit your pants might split. I say, get rid of it!

  • Elena

    If the suit don’t fit, you look like a twit.

  • StellaZafella

    If the suit don’t fit, don’t wear it.
    But, then, come sit yo’ half nekkid self down by me…I got somtin’ ta say about them sweet socks…hee, hee!

  • Cousin_Rose

    He can wear that suit and smile anytime. I’m not complainin’

  • majorbedhead

    He looks like an adorable little (OK, not so little) nerd, trying to stuff himself into the suit he got for his confirmation 10 years ago. His socks are cute.

  • filmcricket

    There is no excuse for him to not have perfectly tailored suits. It’s like Julia Louis-Dreyfus: if you’re so rich that your acting money is chump change, buy the stuff and have it altered (which I suspect she does, since fit is rarely an issue for JLD). You don’t need to rely on designer loaners, Armie.

    • Heather

      I absolutely agree. Many of the ‘bad’ celebrity outfits we see are really bad because of the fit. I get stuff tailored at my corner dry cleaner for, like, $10. If I can do it, these people certainly can.

    • mellbell

      Did not know that about Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She wears it well.

  • crash1212

    I wouldn’t have thought finding a decent looking suit that fits, looks good and is properly pressed would be as difficult as these actors make it seem. Live and learn.

  • MilaXX

    He looks ready to hulk out of that jacket any minute now.

  • capybara_cafe

    If the suit don’t fit, you look like shit. No, just no.

  • Scimommy

    If the suit don’t fit… Bitter Kittens have a fit!

  • Carrieanno

    What suit?

  • GladtoexitNEPA

    if the suit don’t fit, make the stylist quit!

  • Tatiana Luján

    Linen only looks really good on the hanger. You put it on and ten minutes later, it’s all wrinkled.
    If besides from that, your clothes don’t fit, you’re screwed.

  • JasmineAM

    I really hope he owns stock in Arm & Hammer.

    • Coolekat

      I’m pretty sure he is Arm &Hammer

  • AnnaleighBelle

    Aw, is that a normal man wearing the Hannibal “spread”?

  • amber.

    If the suit don’t fit then you’ll look like shit. If the suit don’t fit, then maybe you should quit. If the suit don’t fit don’t fucking wear it.

    If the suit don’t fit, aren’t you like a billionaire there should be no reason we’re having this conversation you have enough money to pay for a perfectly fitting suit.

  • stephbellard

    If the suit don’t fit…take it off and come sit on my face. Fuck the rhyming AND me (please Armie Hammer fuck me).

  • KayEmWhy

    Is it becoming a trend that men wear their suits jackets tight? John Legend same thing today.

  • cowper

    Hooray for cute socks! Guy is putting some effort into it.

  • “If the suit don’t fit, GET OUT OF IT.”

  • ailujailuj

    Oh armie. Just because you have a perfect name and swoon me to shame… Doesn’t mean you can wear the linens in NYC. It just don’t go.

  • hellkell

    If the suit don’t fit, you must change that shit.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Hahaha! Socks are cute though. Hell, the man is cute. Seriously cute. And the suit is great, it’s a shame about the fit.

  • quiltrx

    If the suit don’t fit, the adorable face distracts from it!
    (from the neck up…le sigh…)

  • ailujailuj

    misters uncles… can we have a vote on the video ad thingy? 🙁

  • demidaemon

    Another suit awaiting explosion.

  • gracedarling

    If the suit don’t fit, then alter it.

    (Not snappy, but sound advice!)

  • Laylalola

    It seems like it would be extremely hard to make him look bad… I guess this shows the importance of wearing clothes that fit properly.

  • decormaven

    “If the suit don’t fit, pull a Pitt.” You’re welcome.

  • Kate Andrews

    Too-tight Jones! Also, for a second I thought this was Mad Style with Bob Benson in the picture. Clearly I’m anxiously awaiting it!

  • carnush

    This looks like a blue version of the pink Tom Ford gigolo suit. Guess he really likes those.

  • The socks are at least cute!

  • AlinaValero

    love his socks!

  • Danielle L


  • Coolekat

    Have someone shine your shoes!

  • Lilithcat

    Is this guy related to Armand Hammer? Because, if so, I’m sure he can afford a tailor.

    • filmcricket


  • ErmengardeGreen

    Agreed, but he looks better than he has any other time in the last week. (That the paparazzi have caught.)

  • Jecca2244

    i can’t believe he is only 26.

  • NoveltyRocker

    Love that his shoes look a little lived in.

  • Bexxx

    Can Armie Hammer and Mamie Gummer be a thing?

  • DilettanteDeconstructed

    If the suit don’t fit, then off with it! 😉

  • LauraAgain

    Dang, he looks like he could be John Krasinski’s brother! And those socks …. love ’em.

    Face it, he’s drop dead gorgeous and who is looking at the suit, anyway?

  • julnyes

    his pocket square needs zhushing

  • irielle

    Yes, the suit doesn’t fit at all, but the color looks good on him!

  • librarygrrl64

    He’s a cutie. 🙂
