Posted on April 15, 2014

All the credit in the world for trying, but… no, son. Just no.

We know the print shirt with a skinny suit thing is kind of a trend among the twinky types, but that print is just hideous and the jacket fits him oddly. It doesn’t help that he buttoned both buttons. You want to do that whole Topman/British hipster look, go right ahead.  You’re the guy for it, Dane. But it has to not look like the leisure suit Tom proudly wore for his Confirmation in 1978. Sorry, but that’s the rule.

And no way IN HELL are any of you ever going to see a picture of THAT. Even Lorenzo’s only seen that picture once.

    I’m thinking he’s contractually obligated to wear Prada, but this is baaaaaaaaad. It’s the Jlaw/Dior curse in male form.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Who the hell is he? I never heard of him (admittedly, that may not mean much), and he got a Prada contract?

      • Danielle

        He’s in Kill Your Darlings, and will be in the new James Dean movie with RPatz. Not totally sure if he actually has a contract but he was the face of their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign.

        I first saw him on In Treatment – a show which has launched at least two awesome young ones into the world of movies. Mia Wasikowska was another one I first saw on that show, now she is in all kinds of great stuff, and of course Dane is in a lot of things now. He was brilliant in Kill Your Darlings.

      If its true that he has a contract with them then theyy damned well oughta make sure he looks PERFECT in their clothes.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        I know, right? Why would you want someone to represent your brand look like that?

        • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

          It is a source of continual amazement to me. One of the reasons the studio system worked so well for so long was that they made sure their people were NEVER seen looking anything other than perfect. Why a global luxury brand would do less leaves me scratching my head.

  • Glam Dixie

    That might be the ugliest shirt I have ever seen. On a positive note, I like his shoes.

    • Danielle

      I weep thinking that shirt probably cost more than my monthly house payment.

    • kimmeister

      Is that a black bird’s butt peeping out from the jacket???

  • http://recapscallion.blogspot.com/ Claire

    Ankles up is not great but those are some handsome shoes.

    1) I love men who boldly wear terrible printed shirts (especially if they are Prada). 2) Electro? Come the eff on.

  • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

    He is so darn pretty. DAT FACE!

    He can wear every ugly suit and shirt on earth, he still has DAT FACE! :)

    • Danielle

      Shades of young Leo. He should play him in a biopic.

      • The Counselor

        That *would* be spot-on casting, but I sincerely hope that he does not have a biopic made about him, unless he does something a *lot* more interesting later in life [/shade]

  • krelnick

    If they ever remake Stephen King’s, “It,” he’d be great as Patrick Hockstetter. Sooooooo creeeeeepy.

  • clatie

    it doesn’t help that he looks like he is in hour 29 of a lost weekend. ugh.

  • MilaXX

    Oh I want to see that picture of Tom soooo bad. I’ll even show you that horrible 5th grade picture of me that made me look like a black cousin Oliver. *sideeyes mother*
    As for this guy, I don’t know who he is, but I would forgive the shirt if the jacket fit him better. The fit of the jacket is off. Even if it was buttoned properly I don’t think it would work.

  • Gatto Nero

    The scale of the print is throwing everything off, and the jacket is a little tight.
    Another version of Prada quirkiness might suit him better. He can carry some eccentricity for sure.
    Great shoes.

  • Cyprienne Zed

    Ugly print + janky collar = one hiddy shirt.

    • kirkyo

      Random fabric cut or did they want the left side to disappear and the right side split in half?

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Keep the hideous shirt pattern but make that outfit blue, add some Radiohead in the background, and you’ve got Romeo + Juliet.

    • Anna

      SO right! He definitely has DiCaprio circa 1996 going on.

  • Cheryl

    Damn, this shirt is going to make me reconsider my love of printed shirts. That is truly horrific. I’m actually kind of glad the jacket is buttoned up even though it is too tight, it’s saving from full exposure to that monstrosity. Not sure who this is, looks like a particularly tall twelve year old.

  • demidaemon

    Lounge lizard is all I see.

  • Anna

    The cut and the fabric is more modern, but this particular shade of brown in a suit usually reminds me of Napoleon Dynamite’s prom outfit.

  • Scott Cooper

    The browns clash, and none of them are his color.

  • boweryboy

    That shirt would be awesome with a pair of jeans or shorts. Overall, it’s a weird look with a weird fit. Also, it doesn’t help that he has the face of a 12 year old. It’s hard to believe he’s two years shy of 30!

    • Cheryl

      Hah, I thought that was exactly how old he was!

      • boweryboy

        Me too! I had to Google him to make sure.

    • Beardslee

      WHAT??? I thought he looked like he could be friends with my high school senior.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Reminds me of Mr. Bean.

  • tallgirl1204

    DiCaprio eyes. That’s all I see.

  • NMMagpie

    Neither the man nor the suit do anything for me.

    Can we have another picture of Tom Hiddleston instead?

  • JauntyJohn

    When I was young, and my father would take us to a “fancy” restaurant, there would be a “jacket and tie” dress code to eat in the dining room. Occasionally a gentleman, unaware of said policy, would show up as a guest and the establishment would provide — from a wrack in the manager’s office I guess — a blazer or tie to finish off their wardrobe for the meal. Consequently you would see some dude in a jacket (or tie) that looked like it went with nothing else he was wearing.
    This is that.
    Although the jacket and pants “go” the whole thing… jeesh.
    I echo the “points for trying” sentiment but this young man needs serious style assistance.
    Nice enough shoes, though.

  • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

    …Is it just me, or does anyone else bear an irrational HATE for this skinny lapel trend?

  • Beardslee

    I think I’d like that shirt if it were differently deployed. Maybe unbuttoned at the throat, to cut up the pattern?
    I have no idea who this child is. Cute boy.

  • marlie

    That shirt is eye-searingly ugly. And the suit is the color of poo.

  • Imasewsure

    We’ll set up a Bitter Kitten phone tree and contact everyone in Tom’s family for that picture. Someone will gladly share it…..:)

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Yes, yes, it could be done. We’d have to be very secretive about it, though. Like “The Bletchley Circle”. We could call ourselves The Bitchy Circle, lol. :)

  • wisenhar

    Young man, have you been consulting Taylor Swift on how to coordinate browns? Cause, it looks like you have, and she ain’t the one to ask.

  • Nika E

    I like the shirt, but im kind of into fugly prints. I like the shoes too, but the suit is not good.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Oh dear, young man. First of all, you’re ruining it by buttoning both buttons. Secondly, if that whole thing were fit better, and the shirt were a slightly less offensive shade of whacky, it might work. Fix your hair though, okay?

    • Chuck Barthelme

      I think I put my finger on why I hate the shirt, actually. I can’t see the collar. Too much pattern there. If I could see the collar, I think it would work better.

      • formerlyAnon

        If you could see the collar, it would at least attempt to break the sloping line from neck to arms, that makes his shoulders look like they’ve melted. ETA: O.k. so I exaggerate. General sentiment stands.

  • Ashleigh

    I uh….kinda like it…..

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie


  • ashtangajunkie

    Just because buttons are there, doesn’t mean that they have to be buttoned. Simmer down, sweets.

  • B_C_J

    The jacket is not fitting well as evidenced by the pull on the top button even when his arms are down by his side. He needs it to be larger in the chest. Also, because his shoulders are naturally more sloped (not criticizing his body – just acknowledging what is evident), a slight amount of padding would also be of great assistance. I like the color but hate the shirt.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    In the words of Captain America… Son, just don’t

  • decormaven

    The fit of that jacket is so poor, I can’t focus on any other details. Big ol’ stylist fail.

  • Betsy

    What the fug?

  • Madam Von Sassypants

    If he had a Pinterest account, he should create a board titled “Colors I Can’t Wear” and then pin a photo of him in this suit on it.

  • formerlyAnon

    I picture Tom as a very gangly Confirmee. The kind whose mother struggled to keep in trousers that were long enough.

    As to Mr. DeHaan, that suit makes you look rather slope-shouldered and the buttoned up shirt doesn’t help. But in support of the “everyone wants to be or do you” idea, I will imagine that in real life the vibrance of your conversation and your compelling body language is riveting and it matters not what you wear.

  • FridaStaire

    I love that he tried! Magnificent failure!

  • quiltrx

    This one keeps trying to go for the printed shirt looks and just never gets it quite right. Maybe he needs to “have his colors done” like back in the 90s to find out what works for him!
    On the plus side…kudos on the hair, Dane.

  • icm

    When I look at his face I can see this boy playing Boy George in a bio pic . Am I mistaken?
