He looks great – I just love his face so much.
His suit is nice, and so is his smile, but I find that the tie bugs.
LOL you are right about the tie. what is wrong with it?
Is it the horizontal stripes? The knit appearance? The narrowness? Otherwise, he’s cuuuuute.
I think those things, but also the knot is wonky, and it’s a little crooked.
I think it’s the horizontal stripes. Bugs me too. Otherwise, Bryan looks great.
Yup. Hate those stripes.
It seems like there isn’t enough difference in width between the knot and the tie, so it just looks like he is wearing a striped ruler.
YAS! I feel better now that you’ve explained my thoughts.
I think we are just so used to seeing diagonal stripes. Because these stripes are horizontal, I expect the bottom of the tie to be cut off straight, like those knit ties men used to wear.
My opinion is that skinny ties need to use a full windsor to get a proportionally sized knot. The four in hand or half windsor annoy me with skinny ties since the knot ends up being so weirdly small. Though I’m partial to full windsors for all ties other than gargantuanly wide ones like politicians wear. Got to hand it to Bryan, though. He’s a snappy dresser. Young’ins could learn a thing or two from him.
Absolutely correct, especially with the spread collar. He would look better in a forward point collar.
I think the knot and the stripes are part of the problem, but that the other issue is that he’s wearing it with a banker suit. A suit that traditional doesn’t seem quite right with a sort of hipsterish skinny tie.
Agreed. I think it clashes with the rest of the look and might be a bit too wide.
ETA: It’s not too wide, but the pattern is throwing my eye off.
I love him!
I think it’s a testament to his acting that I absolutely loathed Walter White, but totally think Bryan Cranston is a hot piece of old man. I’ve never been able to separate the actor from the character that much before.
Yes, he always has such a twinkle in his eye and you NEVER saw that as Walter White. He was so amazing in that role.
Well done sir!
His face is becoming wrinkled like an unmade bed, and that just makes it so much better. In fact I….will be in my bunk.
…an unmade bed you don’t want to get out of because Bryan Cranston is in it?
I hope we don’t see it smooth out.
He looks good, but that is the sorriest excuse for a pocket square I have ever seen. The tie is too thin and the stripes too horizontal or something but it’s a solid B.
Ha! I didn’t even SEE that pocket bit.
You’re right about the pocket square. Would have been much better in the matching red.
Can anyone explain the point of a pocket square? Is it just another accessory? Was it ever anything useful that sort of devolved? And what is the origin of the tie? Inquiring minds need to know these bits of trivia.
I always thought that the pocket square came from back when the guys used to carry a hanky, but then when they stopped carrying an actual hanky the pocket square made it look like they had a cool one, I have no idea if this is factual or not but it is in my head. I would imagine the tie is just an evolution of the cravat.
It’s like the one you get sewn in free with your first suit purchase for the middle school dance.
Bryan, save me from Godzilla! Or the Mexican cartel. Or whatever. Let’s just jump in the car and take off together.
looks like a chemistry teacher.
I would take EVERY chemistry class if the teachers looked like this.
He somehow manages to look like a little kid in those photos. Kinda adorable.
It’s the impish grin.

i’m two years old than he is GACK! GACK GACK! but he’s wrinklier. Whew. And i think he looks great. It’s hard for me to nitpick on him because i really do heart him endlessly. Just look at that smile! He really is, as another poster noted, kind of like a little kid with that smile.
His smile is very disarming.
He’s just the most adorable thing I can’t even
Humans of New York had a picture of him and his wife from the Met Ball. They asked him what he loved most about her, and he said, “That she still gets giddy about fireflies.”
Plus, he was in a white dinner jacket and looked HAWT.
He’s got sort of an “elder statesman” vibe, and I mean that in a good way. He looks pretty classy.

I love that he looks like a real man with wrinkles and smile lines and everything.
I’m not feeling this look, but Bryan Cranston is one of my very favorites, so I will ignore all my nitpicks.
Perfectly tailored, but the material and tie read a bit dated. Someone in their 20’s might be able to pull it off, but a person who could foreseeably have been alive in the 60’s shouldn’t be wearing a re-tread of those styles. He looks like he’s headed into a meeting at SCDP.
OH GOD MAKE THAT HAPPEN, WEINER.
Wonky cuffs. Cuffscrepancy?
He appears to have excellent posture.
AND properly hemmed pants!
The suit is nice. But for the first time, he is looking a bit old and wrinkly in the face. Since he’s the same age as me, I do not like seeing that. Buck up, Bryan!
Another fine selection for Sausage Friday. Very nice!
He looked so much better and more youthful on Jimmy Fallon earlier this week. Still love him, but kind of disappointed how staid this is for a big movie premiere…
I’ll have to look up that ep of Fallon, just to see Mr. White. Would love to see him and Jimmy playing one of Jimmy’s games together…
I love that cray cray tie!
Yum…craggy. He looks a little uncomfortable, tho. This knit tie trend on the RC is amusing me.
What happened to him? He looks like he aged a 100 years since Malcolm in the Middle! Also, the tie is not nearly formal enough for the suit.
Adorable, but I am in his age range we can’t take extended travel and late nights the way we used to–he needs to give it a rest. And maybe he passed on any makeup for this event–are touchups standard for the RC? Heart him and his realness.
