Every bit of credit where it’s due; this has to be one of the toughest-to-pull-off suits we’ve seen in some time.
John Legend attends the “Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live” Concert in London in a polka-dot double-breasted Gucci suit.

We really want to do nothing but applaud John Legend in a polka dot double-breasted suit because … well, do we need a reason other than it sounds like a great idea on paper? But it’s possible that even John Legend can’t pull off the polka dot double-breasted suit, or it’s possible that he just can’t pull off this particular iteration of it. The cut does not seem to flatter here; either on the top or the bottom. The jacket is too short for him and the neckline is too open on his chest, showing off too much of the blindingly white shirt underneath. Plus, those are absolutely the wrong shoes to wear with any suit, polka dot double-breasted or not.
A+ for effort, but we really don’t think most non-model males can handle this kind of look.
