The shirt and the pants are the same color, while the jacket is a different shade of blue. He’s ridiculously cute, and we love the colors and appreciate the tailoring here (although the split in the jacket is a bit wide and looks strange with three buttons), but we really don’t like the way way the colors are deployed. Call us traditional, but if any two pieces should match here, it’s the jacket and pants. Jacket and shirt matching give it a priest-like feeling and when you put a much lighter jacket over it, it suddenly feels like a formal uniform of some sort.

Y’know, the more we think of it, the more most men’s styling on the red carpet comes down to one thing, so we’re going to make it a T Lo Mens Style Dictum. Are you ready? This is momentous. Kind of like a burning bush or a sermon on a mount. Here we go:

 

 

 

A white shirt would fix this in a second.
