Tyler Hoechlin at the John Varvatos 11th Annual Stuart House Benefit

Posted on April 18, 2014

Mmmm, no. We don’t think so, Tyler.

That is a whole hell of a lot of look for a non-model to pull off, no matter how cute and built that non-model is.  We give him credit for Willising it the Fuck Up, but let’s face it; The Varvatos people just handed him something straight out of their look book and he put it on, like a good boy. This isn’t so much style as it is surrendering.

Really, it comes down to that jacket, which gives him a lady shape; fitted just under the rib cage, with a slight flare at the hips. It’s just a bit overdesigned; and when you add the shoes to the look, it borders on clownish. Ditch the jacket for a fitted waistcoat and keep everything else.

We keep wanting to tell him to shave, but he’s probably one of those guys who pretty much looks like that 2 hours after their last shave. If we saw him commit a crime and a police sketch artist asked us to describe his face, we’d say “Hair. That’s all we can remember.” He was destined to play a werewolf, it seems.

    He seems to like that jacket, it’s the same he used for the MTV movie awards.

    • hyperionic

      It’s the exact same outfit… guess he didn’t have time to change.

      • formerlyAnon

        Maybe he only rates one freebie ensemble?

    • Kara

      That’s because it’s the same day.

      • Martin Leon

        Tyler Hoechlin’s Busy Day

  • j_am

    The cheeseball posing isn’t helping this, either. Without the jacket, the rest could be great.

  • chris garcia

    i might be the exception over here, but I love a man with bushy eyebrows….unibrow? even better.

    • melisaurus

      My boyfriend is probably a little hairier than this. I like it too although I prefer two eyebrows.

  • Sarah Winningham

    He used to be a model…

    • NMMagpie

      I know but he still looks like a baseball player. 🙂

    • Sif


  • hughman

    Costumed for the new remake of the beloved musical “Hello Dolly!” called “Yo, Dolly.”

    • decormaven

      Truly. This is stage costume turned street.

    • Alloy Jane

      I have to pee now thanks to you.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        ^ Haha, this.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I’m not even ashamed to admit I endured two seasons of Teen Wolf solely for him and Colton Hayes. Both are much better sans clothes because most of the time they show up in clothes that are ridiculous. And also because their bodies are ridic.

    • WendyD

      Colton Hayes is barely human he’s so perfect. I was introduced to him through ‘Arrow’ and I can see why he’s still modeling along with the acting. BEYOND BEAUTIFUL.

      • Let it out

        Today is the first time I’ve ever seen him. What an exquisite man!

  • Latin Buddy

    Sorry, the jacket is TOO much. I refuse to follow my fellow gayboys in trying to make motorcycle jackets anything beyond streetwear.

  • NMMagpie

    At first glance, this took me right back to JT’s denim suit.

    • marlie

      And that’s nowhere any of us want to go again.

    • merciblahblah

      That is EXACTLY what I thought as well. Not good.

  • Kerri

    I must be the odd one out because I LOVE this jacket. It’s different and unique and I think it fits him well. But maybe I’m just weird like that…

    • kimmeister

      I would love this jacket even more on me (and I’m female).

      • Kerri

        That might be some of my love for it. LOL Who doesn’t want a blue suede biker jacket?

  • Eric Stott

    Give him points for the lack of obvious neckbeard

  • sagecreek

    Nope, jacket is all wrong.

  • WendyD

    The tie is making me twitchy. *must fix*

  • Nice shoes.

  • marlie

    I’m not feeling anything I see here. That jacket is beyond horrible, though.

  • thesevenendless

    Normally I HATE HATE HATE guys with facial hair, but Tyler seems to the one man on earth that I actually find hotter with stubble than clean shaven. Am I nuts here?

    • demidaemon

      No. Not at all. I am in total agreement with you.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Steven Amell from Arrow as well.

  • Rhonda Shore

    Mark Ruffalo’s separated-at-birth twin brother.

  • Nicholas

    That’s a clown-town knot on that tie.

  • Patrick Cleary

    I want those shoes. I WANT THOSE SHOES.

  • Miss Ruth

    I have no idea who this set of teeth even is, but the outfit is wearing him.

  • LP

    Is he Canadian or Texan? Denim jackets are formalwear in some parts of the world…

    • kimmeister

      It’s not denim, it’s suede.

      • kittentoes

        Suede that looks like denim is a mistake.

        • formerlyAnon

          SO MUCH YES.

      • LP

        Ah, so a cow had to die for what looks like a tacky jean jacket

    • Tina Power

      Flannel is formal wear in many parts of Canada.

  • Jeremy Thomas Porta

    I am actually in love with that jacket. He’s not wearing it the same way, though. Apparently you can zip and/or button it up in multiple ways, and he’s using the buttons whereas the model was using the zipper.

  • JauntyJohn

    Any piece of clothing which can give THAT man — veritably a walking example of the Y chromosome — (seriously, have you seen some of those shots from ‘Teen Wolf’? Guilty pleasure and then some) anything like a “lady shape” should not only be burned, but the designers should have their scissors broken; or whatever the professional design equivalent of having the stripes ripped off your arm for Conduct Unbecoming in old school military movies.

    • Constant Reader

      Or have someone punch through their bowler hats like what happened to Mr. Banks in Mary Poppins when he was sacked from the bank.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Ha. Love it.

  • Alloy Jane

    This guy needs to look at that esquire cover with Tom Hardy to see what a proper beard looks like. Either commit to the beard, or shave. He’s too pretty to just wear stubble. Only Joe can really get away with just the stubble.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Thank you, Bitter Kittens, for introducing me to the phrase “I’d climb that tree,” because I’d climb that tree.

    (and I feel like a dirty old lady for thinking so)

  • Jaime

    Am I only one who liked what he was wearing and thought he looked good? Guess so haha

  • MilaXX

    Poor ting, ting. He tried. It didn’t work, but he tried.

  • formerlyAnon

    He’s a grown ass man, surely he KNOWS how to tie a tie? Fire whomever gave him the last minute once over and let him go out in front of the cameras with it like that.

    The jacket doesn’t really work, you are right.

    • demidaemon

      I think you would be unfortunately surprised at the number of grown ass men who cannot tie a tie.

  • Milos Mom

    The jacket does not work in the at shade of blue because it looks like denim which cheapens it. It should be gray or black and that cut would only work on on a 19 year old bean pole. Wait… Varvatos is super tacky so what can we expect.

  • YoungSally

    New category – GTNYD – Guy that’s not your denim!

  • Sophie

    Crazy smile and the jacket is too tight.

  • FridaStaire

    He looks so happy! Horrible outfit, but don’t burst his balloon by mentioning it. He looks like he might skip down the street!

    • demidaemon

      That might be the gayest image I have had in my mind today. Maybe.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    Tyler, so cute and so little idea of how to dress. Apparently on set (Teen Wolf – guilty pleasure) he waits til the last minute to put on Derek’s skinny jeans because he hates them so much… plus, this guy can keep the stubble since it looks almost beard like!

  • somebody blonde

    He should just give in and grow out the beard a little. Enough so that it looks black against his face, not gray.

  • That jacket is not for pairing with a black-tie look. He should have smacked the John Varvatos people and told him to lend it to him for a photocall where he could wear jeans or khakis. That said, I do like the jacket, but it’s very casual for a $2800 jacket. But it’s hard for me to imagine anything formal in a blue suede (ok, lambskin, but whatever).
    I guess they picked the poor man’s Joe Manganiello for Teen Wolf?

  • icm

    Is it a trend of the red carpet boys to never knot their ties to the edge of the collar? I have never seen so many top shirt buttons lately or knots askew .wtf! Maybe I am just getting old. It looks sloppy.

    • Mousentrude

      Agreed. I’m fine with the rest of the look, if only he’d done his tie properly.

  • quiltrx

    Wait…WHAT? Had to look him up on IMDb….the son from Road to Perdition (fabulous movie) turned out VERY nice! He has a nice-guy face, like Jonathan Schaech without the whiff of douche.
    That being said, this is ALL VERY WRONG. I like some of the parts but none of them together. And suede should never, EVER be tormented to look like 80s denim. I love motorcycle jackets, but this one is all kind of sad. And those shoes are fabulous, but never should have met any of the rest of this!

  • ItchyInAppalachee

    If Jay Leno ever did Steampunk… he would wear that jacket.

  • demidaemon

    It’s not horrible, but, as he is not a drag queen (as far as I know) or a historical reenactor, he should probably avoid corsets.

  • Fannie Wolston

    I like this, something different for the guys, i’d be tempted to steal that jacket from my boyfriends closet. The shoes are cool too, sting & willis with yer brown clodhoppers take note.

  • kategs

    I seriously want that jacket which tells me that he shouldn’t be wearing it!

  • colorjunky

    WHO CARES WHAT HE’S Wearing!!!! HOT

  • boweryboy

    Mmmmm….now that’s how you do a beard. Lose the jacket and the look would be perfect. Hell, he should just lose all the clothes. All of them.

  • CT14

    Is that denim? Or blue suede?

    And straight from the runway look.

    Oh no, pretty werewolf boy. Don’t do that.

  • Shawn EH

    He’s a natural dandy, but he should give that jacket to his mom.

  • Imasewsure

    He looks really happy and i love the shoes. The rest… not so much

  • carnush

    He’s got the most mesmerizing smile! The jacket is ridiculous, however.

  • I love that jacket! For me. On him…not so much. But he is glorious to look at.

  • Danielle

    He looks like he’s about to rumble with the Sharks.

  • dmkava

    I feel like, for a guy, you have to be really thin to wear Varvatos. It’s just structurally weird
