      He looks great. Though the jacket sleeves should have been hemmed to show more cuff.

    • Janet B

      Humph. I’m not enjoying the beards featured this morning.

      • gabbilevy

        Beard + shiny suit + messy hair = He looks greasy to me.

    • charlotte

      I would never watch Glee, but he is cute and I like his suit (ha, that rhymes).

        I will not watch Glee on a train, I will not watch Glee on a plane…

    • Nicholas

      I hereby name that fanciful colour combination “Steamboat Willy”.

      No double thumbs up gestures Darren. Nuh Uh. Your suit looks good though. I would have selected a less monochorme tie for you, however.

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        I agree about the tie- maybe a dark purple-ish?

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Or perhaps a dense loden green.

          • Meg0GayGuys6

            ohhh yea, good call. And I must add, while the silly hand gestures can kindly exit the RCs, I love me a goofy smile. :)

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              As do I. Gimme a sweetly dorky guy, most of the time. By the way, I love your screen name.

            • Meg0GayGuys6

              Hahaha thanks- my friends make fun of me for my sad track record, of shall we say, my gaydar being shoddy. :)

    • veleri

      the hair.

      • Annarosa

        shut up, I love it. and I know I’m not the only one ;)

        • veleri

          I just don’t believe the hair and beard work for the overall look. :/

          • Annarosa

            dunno. I like hypertricotic men.

            • Eric Stott

              He needs either more or less beard (though thumbs up for shaving the neck) and the hair looks like he just got out of bed. Overall very good though.

        • kaysarasara

          I second the love!

      • Andrew Schroeder

        He’s balding, so that’s probably why he’s wearing it that way.

    • anotherkate

      It was all so good until the thumbs-up. He looks very sharp. (And to be fair, it seems he’s slowly but surely putting away the goofy posing antics. I guess the thumbs-up dies hard, but at least we aren’t getting finger guns and weird facial expressions anymore).

    • Jessica Freeman

      He won all the votes from me for the polka dot tie and striped shirt. Now go shave.

    • Annarosa

      thumbs up for Darren.
      lovely and handsome

    • filmcricket

      I do appreciate that while he’s been letting his traditional mountain man hiatus look resurface, he shaves his neck. Well done, Darren. A little pop of colour in the tie would not have gone amiss, but this is a pretty good ensemble.

    • alyce1213

      Gorgeous suit. I think his pocket square, also polka dots, should be something else — maybe one touch of color? The trousers and hem are perfect.
      Overall he looks quite nice.

    • Sara__B

      This reminds me of one of those kids books where the pictures are cut into three pieces and you can mix and match the heads, torsos, and legs for fun. The scruffy head and perfect suit combination pictured here looks so mixed-up it’s making me laugh.

      • veleri

        thank you Sara. just thank you.

    • formerlyAnon

      He looks good. I’d like it better if he were clean shaven, but that’s a personal preference.

      P.s. nice shoes, just enough sheen to the suit, any more and it’d be too much.

    • clairellis

      He’s so adorable.

    • MilaXX

      This looks really good. I wish there was a pop of red somewhere, but that’s a minor quibble. I also adore how he’s embcing his curly hair lately.

      • ampg

        After spending months with a pound of product in it every day, it must feel so nice to let it go (mostly) natural.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Sigh. He’s pretty.

      I really like the suit and the pattern mixing, though wouldn’t have minded a little color somewhere. Still, he looks great.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      The double thumbs up needs to be left to Henry Winkler.

    • nannypoo

      He looks great. I like the tiny prints and the suit seems to fit, so I’m willing to overlook the fact that he absolutely never shaves. I remember what a douche he used to be with the silly glasses and idiotic poses whenever he was photographed. It looks like our little boy is growing up.

    • julnyes

      He looks good. A slightly shorter sleeve and some color (perhaps in the pocket square) would have dialed this look up nicely. He has lovely hair (I’m a sucker for curly hair) and the beard is well groomed and not on his neck so I am happy with these points.

    • TAGinMO

      I don’t love the peek-a-boo of the shirt and tie that we’re getting below the suit-button, and frankly I’m puzzled as to why it’s happening at all, because the jacket doesn’t seem like it’s too tight. But even with that unsolved mystery and the fact that his tie needs to be tightened THISMUCH, I can’t give this look less than a 9.* He looks delicious, and I’m having all sorts of NSFW thoughts right now.

      * Well, OK, 8.5. The double thumbs-up wounds me.

    • Karen Dickerson

      I always think he looks adorable. Like the kind of guy you’d want to grab a beer with. Or snuggle with. Ya know, whatever. Either or.

      • filmcricket

        Both, for preference.

        • Karen Dickerson


    • AlisonS

      Am I the only one who wishes he could have fixed his head? ‘Cause cut that off and it’s not a half-bad look. Which is nice considering I think he looks like he’s trying to hard most of the time…

      *ducks & misses the rotten produce only to slip on a banana peel.*

    • JasmineAM

      He needs this hair and beard ALWAYS. He’s still cute when he’s clean shaven, but good god he looks delicious here.

    • shawna

      I like that he hasn’t yet gone for the super bright, unnaturally white Hollywood teeth.

    • MannahattaMamma

      Ah. Mmm. See? That’s dressing to respect the fans (aka: the people who pay all that money so you can dress in Armani. Someone should send a note to Mr. Pitt)

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Kind of annoyingly gray, but at least he went with interesting shirt and tie choice. Pants should be a bit more tailored, though their not ridiculous or anything. And points for shaving the neckbeard even though he isn’t shaving his face.

    • stephbellard

      Love the suit, love him, hate the hair (including facial hair).

    • crash1212

      He almost had me, until the double thumbs up. Bush league. Nice suit though. Head’s a bit scruffy.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Pants seem like they’re sitting a little too low, and I wish there was some color in this look, but I like the pattern mixing in the shirt and tie. It’s subtle and witty. But I think Darren would benefit from some color in his looks.

    • conniemd

      I’ll be my usual broken record and cry out for color from the men. Seems like every tie I’ve seen is black, gray our navy. Other than that he looks cute and the beard doesn’t seem to have the ubiquitous neck beard.

    • majorbedhead

      He’s so adorable when he’s clean-shaven. I think I just have a bias against beards in general.

    • minnye

      I think his scruffy look is super cute! The tie tip sticking out from under the jacket, however… when I see that I’ll forever be reminded of a comment a while back from a BK who described a Sears catalog underwear malfunction that was seared into her brain as a kid.

    • acevedob

      Love the beard and hair, not so much the suit. Shiny things scare me, but dirty/scruffy things don’t ;)

    • TheAmericaness

      Thumbs-up aside, finally, a well-suited suit!

    • JeWawa

      He has too much money for those “chewin on a turd” colored teeth.

    • d4divine

      He looks great…from the neck down

    • decormaven

      Suit – good. Double thumbs-up pose – not good.

    • marlie

      DAYUM. He looks great in this suit. I think he needs a haircut, but I appreciate the fact that his beard is cleaned up.

    • PrunellaV

      Thumbs up! His neck is shaved!

    • jmorino08

      If you grow a beard in the summer, you are going to look greasy. Please plan accordingly…

    • WallyBe

      that wet poodle hair is gross gross GROSS!!
