Kevin McHale Double Shot

Posted on June 14, 2013

Kevin McHale did the hipster-twee Topman thing all over Monaco.


‘Glee’ star Kevin McHale attends the Dick Wolf NBC Party in Monte Carlo, Monaco in a Topman suit paired with a Paulo Succar shirt.

It takes a special man to pull off a suit like this; a special, whippet-sized man with very few years to him. He looks adorable. LOVE that shirt.


Later, our little Hipster-Twee Kevin McHale doll tried out one of his warmer-weather ensembles:

Again: adorable. And even a little chic.

    even though I don’t like suit with shorts, I agree with you guys. And Kevin is lovely.

  • Not my type at ll, but I agree. Though the first jacket looks just THAT much too tight.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      He looks really great. Not my type either, so pardon me while I go back and take another looksie at Joe Mangawhatshisname.

    • StellaZafella

      In 60’s London this would have been called a “tommy” boy…an acquired taste, to be sure, Dr Watson.

      • Ahhhhhh, the Tommys. What a great fad that was.

        • formerlyAnon

          Especially on weedy, underfed Brits.

  • Frank_821

    The only unfortunate thing is with suits that skinny, he REALLY needs not keep his hands out of his pockets

  • somebody blonde

    First man I’ve ever seen pull off a suit with shorts. Bravo, sir.

    • Bravo bravo!! Total cute.

    • MoHub

      It’s an AC/DC flashback moment.

  • Distracted, I click on the TLo and for some reason the pics don’t load, but I see the words “McHale” and “double shot” and I gasped in giddy anticipation, thanking the gods for Sausage Friday because I love JOEL McHale with the lusty burnings of a thousand suns. So my disappointment in seeing Kevin here was like falling from a plane. I can’t even tell you if he’s cute here, because all I can process is “not Joel.”

    • Thistle

      I’m so old I thought Kevin McHale was a Boston Celtics player. Who is this young lad?!

      • VioletFlame

        Talented former boyband singer who plays wheel chair bound (except for dream sequences when he gets up and DANCES) Artie on Glee.

  • iheartbuffy

    I cannot think of another person who would look reasonable in the second ensemble. Even Tom Lenk would look stupid. Attaboy.

    • calbear97

      Even the model looks a little silly, he’s too “grown up” looking for that second suit. Kevin looks perfect.

  • AwesomeMargie

    Holy shit. This looks great.

  • In_Stitches

    The clothes are great, but I can’t deal with the Hipster Donald Trump hairstyle.

  • TAGinMO


    How is it possible that these photos not only fail to fill me with incandescent rage, but even make my pants move a bit??

    Life is unfair.

  • mjude

    he really is adorable.

  • Killer Bees

    Love it, even if the first jacket’s too tight for some. He’s in Europe; everyone’s jacket is tight.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    Truly and concerned fashionista. Also he suddenly seems hotter… yum!

  • acevedob

    He looks great. Nice legs.

  • iCouture

    I’m sorry, he falls under my “irrational hate” category. His schtick annoys me, not sure why. He is a 25 yr old man, not a little British boy. I guess I feel he tries just a tad too hard, like some of his other “Glee” castmates that shall not be named

    -This is just my personal opinion

    • PeaceBang

      I think he’s very cute but I applaud your rage and your right to have it and express it on here. He IS 25. I had forgotten.

  • Karen Dickerson

    Ugh, how adorable is he?? As much as I want to hate the hipster-twee look, when it’s pulled off well I can’t stop myself from going, ‘Awwww, cuuuuute!’ Dammit, Kevin.

  • Jeff Warhurst

    Nice to see LaRoux with a new hairstyle.

  • Emily Smith

    Gah he is CUTE.

  • Edwina3

    Aw, minor quibbles aside, Kevin looks adorable. Love the shorts.

  • ConnieBV

    Not my cup of tea. Jackets too tight, hair flop is odd. He looks like Barbie’s dog Beauty.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Hand in pockets comment notwithstanding, I quite like both of them.

  • MannahattaMamma

    Adorable but I hate that sort of hairdo: it looks like a doily flopped on top of a bowling ball

  • Andrea Lentz

    He looks hungover in the first pic. otherwise. hello cutie.

  • filmcricket

    I cannot with shorts and a suit jacket, I’m sorry, I can’t. I do appreciate his willingness – nay, joy – to take risks. First look is great, if a little snug. Love the shoes in the 2nd one.

  • Emily Dagger

    I like the first outfit so much on him that it almost, ALMOST overrides my intense hatred of this whole top-button-buttoned/no-tie thing that won’t die.

    And then the second picture proves that he isn’t, in fact, physically incapable of unbuttoning his top button, which I’d always assumed must be the case. And so that makes me almost willing to overlook the fancy dress shortpants.

    The haircut, though, is straight out of Swing Kids.

  • RebeccaKW

    I think I would like the first look more if there was more contrast. A darker suit to offset the shirt, a darker shirt to offset the suit. Both pieces I like, I just think they’d pop more separate.

  • What’s today’s secret word, Conky?

  • eck

    He looks a hot mess in that first picture & the combover isn’t doing him any favors. Its a little too “Donald Trump-in-training” for comfort.

    • VioletFlame

      Just snorted into my oatmeal. Heh. Right on ! Not a fan of shaved sides but dang! On Kevin it looked adorbs.

  • crash1212

    I think Topman just found their spokes-model. These are sublime. I love, love, love that shirt with the first suit. If these are his instincts, well, he’s a genius. If it’s a stylist…pay them anything they want to keep them around.

  • MilaXX

    LOVE both looks. (Also lusting after that model in the first pic like whoa!)
    I appreciate Kevin successfully pulling of the make dress short.

  • julnyes

    I hate the hair and I don’t think he can work facial scruff, but those suits are perfection on him (as long as he takes his hands out of his pockets)

  • margot

    is anyone else bothered by his hair?

    • Howard Sturrup

      He would look better with a different do, not sure what but not the one he’s rocking.

  • neeva

    I miss his glasses.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Me too!!

  • girliecue

    Let’s lock Kevin and Alan Cumming in a room filled with patterned clothing and let them duke it out sartorially. Care to place any wagers, fellow BKs?

    • formerlyAnon

      Alan. All Kevin’s got going for him is youthful good looks. While that’s powerful, when it comes down to mastery of difficult fashion, sophistication and an air of experience will always triumph.

      Plus Mr. Cumming’s got that “what I could tell you if only I would” twist to his smile.

      • girliecue

        Alan Cumming does have the most delicious smile! I’d like to lock him in a room and make him tell all….

    • Rand Ortega

      As long as they’re… equally matched at the start.

    • VioletFlame

      Heh. Alan knows how to Bamph! but Kevin is superb at deadpan. Would be fun to watch.

  • majorbedhead

    *whew* I loved that first look and was hoping you weren’t going to tear it to bits. I can’t get past the whole British Schoolboy thing with shorts and a jacket, but it’s still not bad.

  • marlie

    NO ONE else could make either of these looks work. He looks great, though my only quibble is that the jacket is the first look seems a teensy bit too tight. Otherwise, nice job!

  • Austen Jane


  • MartyBellerMask


  • Denise Alden

    Wow. It looks like his style icon is Alan Cumming, and I couldn’t approve more.

  • formerlyAnon

    I think that’s the BEST wearing of formal shorts I’ve ever seen. Kudos.

  • Shawn EH

    I don’t think the hair really suits his face or head, but the clothes are great. He sort of has a Tyra Banks forehead thing no matter what he does.

  • Janet B

    Kevin may be the first man I’ve seen wear a suit with shorts and wear it well.
    He is adorable.

  • luluransom

    He’s really very good at this.

  • sekushinonyanko

    I disagree the latter is chic. There is nothing chic about Little Lord Fauntleroy.

  • unbornfawn

    Cute as a button. Do like the shorts outfit better than the low waisted pants on the first suit.

  • NoveltyRocker

    Too cute. I love how we’ve been getting more variety in men’s fashion this decade.

  • MarissaLG

    I love him in the shorts!

  • Sara__B

    I want a hipster-twee Kevin McHale doll with wardrobe. A much better match for my 1960 Barbie than Ken. (I never had a Ken, so she could definitely use some male company.)

  • nannypoo

    I can’t think of any other man who I would want to see in those shorts. Adorable.

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    He’s so cute. And has very cute legs.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    I’m more interested in the fierce model working that Paulo Succar floral shirt like it owns it money. Danm.

    • sunnycalif

      Exactly! Gorgeous man.

  • decormaven

    One of the very few that can pull off the suit/shorts look. Love that shirt in the top look.

  • Contralto

    Kevin, come inside. Have you eaten? I made the sausage and peppers just the way you like them. Honey, don’t you think you should get your bangs cut? Have you called Gramma lately?

  • To his extreme credit, the short pants didn’t even make me flinch.

  • housefulofboys

    Love these, he looks amazing and very chic in both! Someone else mentioned Alan Cumming, are we seeing a junior version in the making?

  • Qitkat

    Well. Kevin has grown up a bit since I gave up watching Glee.

    You know who I think could also wear these looks? Mondo. I cringe almost every time I have seen him in, well, anything.

  • Crystal

    He is freaking adorable. I love all of this!

  • demidaemon

    These would be perfect–especially the first one–if he just put on a damn belt.

  • quiltrx

    He looks like a ventriloquist’s dummy somehow in that first one….which means I am now terrified.

  • calbear97

    That shirt paired with the first suit is genius. I adore it. So much better than what they have on the model. His hair’s a little silly but if you can’t have silly hair at 25 when can you? He looks great in both.

  • Noelle

    I think he looks great, but I cannot STAND that hair.

    • librarygrrl64

      Agreed. It’s fun and edgy and age-appropriate, but I hate when guys with gorgeous hair shave any parts of it off.

  • VioletFlame

    Love. Both the whippet sized man remark AND Kevin’s fashion sense/gays.
