2013 GQ Men of the Year Awards: Boys in Tuxes

Posted on September 04, 2013

There really isn’t much to say about a man in a tux. He either gets it right or he doesn’t. And since it’s so ridiculously easy to get a tux right (Seriously, guys. It’s like the lowest possible style difficulty setting), critiques tend to be boring, cranky and repetitive.

But we’re not fools. An array of pretty men in tuxes is enough to make plenty of our kittens happy if not downright swooning. Besides, we can’t keep our mouths shut even if we wanted to.

 

Dan Stevens in Hugo Boss

 Grooming-wise, that’s the best he’s looked in ages. The tux fits him terribly, though.

 

David Gandy in Henry Poole & Co

 Blow-up doll.

Is that mean?

 

 

Jamie Redknapp in Thom Sweeney

 Gorgeous. Perfect.

 

 

Matt Smith in Alexander McQueen

Surprisingly boring. A little disappointing.

 

 

Russell Brand

 Jesus Christ, Russell. It’s time to go up a size. Waistlines spread. It happens.

 

 

Samuel L. Jackson in Giorgio Armani

All-black formal menswear just never looks classy to us. We don’t know what’s worse; when the blacks all match, turning a man into a walking shadow, or when they don’t match (like here), making T Lo’s eyelids twitch.

 

Simon Pegg

 Rumpled, but adorable.

 

Tom Ford in Tom Ford

Cardboard cutout.

Is that mean? Oh wait we don’t care.

 

 

Tom Hiddleston in Giorgio Armani

This all seems to be in order.

 

 

Tom Odell

 Cute, but the posing and the hair are making us cranky.
