Luke Evans in Fendi at the One For The Boys Charity Ball

Posted on June 16, 2014

We get so few opportunities to yell at men for being too matchy in their pairings, so hopefully this will buy us some goodwill with all the ladies we’ve pissed off over the years for sneering at their Barbie shoes.

Blue tie, shoes, and belt? No. Absolutely not, Luke. That’s amateur level. Actually, to be more accurate, that’s totally retail. You look like a mannequin in the Fendi section. We hope this one came with a paycheck. Otherwise, we’d have to blame this super-matchy super-Fendi look on you.

And it’s time to impose a rule: If you’re wearing a wild print suit (and we LOVE this one, by the way), you need to be impeccable and you need to GET YOUR GODDAMN HANDS OUT OF YOUR POCKETS. Play with your balls on your own time, boystars.

  • My, TLo, a little bitchy this morning, aren’t we? Too much weekend fun?

  • RussellH88

    I actually kind of like it.

    But I’ll never understand putting your hands in your pockets on the red carpet. The only time I use my pockets is to do my customary “Keys, wallet, phone” patdown before I leave.

    • juniper

      I do that check too! Except being a girl, the check is in my purse because my pants pockets are more for show.

      • RussellH88

        I actually say it out load to myself, even if I’m leaving the grocery story. If I need to remember something, I usually try to tie in as many sense as I can, because it makes it easier to remember. Unfortunately it makes me look like a crazy person. For example, if I’m leaving my apartment, I’ll turn the TV off and say “I am turning the TV off and it was playing an infomercial for Cindy Crawford’s Natural Beauty” so that later when I think “Did I remember to turn my TV off?” I have a stronger image of having done so in my mind.

        That doesn’t sound crazy at all, I’m sure.

        • Glam Dixie

          Do you say it in Helena’s voice? 😉 Actually it’s pretty clever, I’m going to have to try that.

          • RussellH88

            While I’ll sometimes talk in Helena’s voice (Yesterday I was saying “If you don’t want to have my babies, don’t have my babies) but not when I’m doing my little ritual. I swear I’m not crazy, it’s just something I picked up in Psych class.

        • Grumpy Girl

          that is so something I need to teach my spousal unit. Because he gets panicky halfway to anywhere about what is on/off/out/whatever.

          I am just careful about car keys, because when my car door was replaced, the car allowed me to lock keys inside instead of meeping. So, now I’m the crazy person getting out of the car and leaving the house always muttering “where are the fucking keys? gotta have the fucking keys”

          • juniper

            My car has manual locks so I’m the one 30 yards from the car and turning around pretending I forgot something in the car when really I just want to make sure I locked the door. But it’s always locked of course. For some reason it’s the worst in the movie theater- sitting there before the previews trying to remember the moment that I locked that door…

        • FibonacciSequins

          It sounds smart, actually.

        • kimmeister

          I use a curling or flat iron so seldom that I try to tell myself “I have turned off the iron” before I leave the house. If I don’t, I’ll keep second-guessing myself so much after I leave the house that I’ve been known to turn the car around just to double check.

        • conniemd

          I call that the price of getting old. I too have trained myself to have certain routines like always checking to make sure I have the keys before the car is locked.

    • Lucía Gavello

      Thank you! Isn’t it incredibly uncomfortable to shove your entire hand into your pants pockets? I do not get it.

    • kirkyo

      He’s clearly uncomfortable thus the hands. Too bad because it’s not the suit’s fault.

      That’s the wrong shirt and why not show off another crazy patterned tie from the collection? As is, we have resort getaway on the outside and no wait I’m still working underneath.

    • quiltrx

      I see it as the truth behind one of the jokes in ‘Talladega Nights’. Ricky Bobby’s hands keep rising up and doing weird stuff during his interview–he admits he doesn’t know what to do with them. (He has no sponsors yet, and it’s one of the sillier things about Nascar that beverage sponsors expect the driver to drink whatever it is during the interviews.)
      I think if guys could just have a bottle of something to drink on the RC, we’d never see hands in pockets again.

  • Madeline Zappala

    it looks so wrinkly bleh

  • Kitten Mittons

    I think his eyes are broken. Everything about this is weird, and the sum of all the parts is so very distracting.
    The fit is throwing the pattern off, which makes it look like he’s about to Hulk out of that suit. And since he does nothing for me, I’d prefer he didn’t.

  • juniper

    I like the runway trend of mens accessories/bags but that model is not pulling it off. 🙁

    total awkward boyfriend holding girlfriend’s purse- standing inside victoria’s secret during the semi annual sale

  • StelledelMare

    The fact that the last button isn’t buttoned is making me twitchy.

    • MilaXX

      Men don’t button the bottom button on a suit jacket.

  • MilaXX

    I’m not sure if he’s wearing it badly or if this is a suit that needs to be broken up. It’s all just eye searingly bad.

    • lundibleu

      I think breaking it up would be desirable. Even the model wasn’t wearing the jacket. I reckon it’d look better just without the jacket at all, as I think it’d look daft with plain jacket and patterned trousers or vice versa.

    • kimmeister

      I think the tapered pantleg doesn’t work on him.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I would like this much better broken up-wear the jacket with solid pants, the pants with a solid color blazer. It’s a lot of look for any mortal to attempt, and while I give Bard the Bowman props for trying, it is not working.

  • BlairBear

    That fabric looks very mid century couch to me

  • JR Labrador

    Should’ve totally committed and worn blue contacts.

  • Glam Dixie

    In addition to your points, Uncles, I would like to add that I think his pants are just a smidge too short.

    • MoHub

      The whole suit appears to be a size too small.

      • Glam Dixie

        The fit is certainly awkward but I was thinking it was because of the handses being in the pocketses.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Bard doesn’t have his bow with him so he doesn’t know what to do with the handses, not he doesn’t…..

  • Anna

    Kudos to him for trying and I like the print in theory, but no.

    He’s looking more and more like Orlando Bloom’s older brother to me these days, what’s up with their hair anyways?

  • I love the shoes but with a pair of dark wash blue jeans and a cute t-shirt. 🙂

  • PurpleHaze

    From what I know of this event, it’s a male fashion show (organised by Samuel L. Jackson, raising money for men’s cancer charities) so it would make sense that he would be all in one brand if he were walking the catwalk. I know various celebs, such as David Walliams, were due to model.

  • Anapestic

    I would like this so much better with a shave and a haircut.

  • Mona_Visa

    So the Garanimals people went to work for Fendi! Hilarious.

    Handsome guy, though. He would certainly look better without all those ridiculous clothes.

    • Gatto Nero

      And all that hair gel.

  • lalahartma

    I like it!

  • nannypoo

    Well, he looks better than the model, which is not saying much.

  • lexilexi

    Looks so much better w/ the brown shoes the model is wearing.

  • padma sallah

    I am kind of digging it.It’s the first time I’ve actually liked him and what he wore as a whole.

  • Kent Roby

    I love the pattern of this suit, but the pull at the button (emphasized by the blue striping across that area) makes the jacket look like it’s being worn by someone who hates dressing up. Buttoning the bottom button and taking his hands out of his pockets would improve his overall look dramatically.

  • Michael_Jones

    God, I LOVE those shoes. Christmas shopping ideas, anyone?

  • Good shoes, love the Welsh dragon on the tie, loved Samuel L Jackson on the Graham Norton show talking about this charity. The rest is not good.

  • Grumpy Girl

    I don’t understand what makes people think they should allow pictures to be taken with hands in pockets. My mother would raise holy hell and chop at my wrists or elbows if I did that, back in my trying-to-look-cool preteen days. I still get sympathy pains seeing someone stand like this, waiting for my mother to jump out, yell and swat at them.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Too tight, too short, and yes, too retail. All I really want to know is, can I get away with wearing those shoes?

  • Coleslaw McGraw

    I love everything about it except the hands in pockets and that button. I love that crazy-assed print so much that i don’t mind the belt tie and shoe garanimals look.

  • Noah

    None of the blues match and it makes me stabby.

  • Danielle

    He’s like the older brother of Orlando Bloom and Kit Harrington. I don’t hate it.

  • colleenjanel

    Am I the only person who has never heard of him and thought he was a country singer? I mean, the name … the hair … I was wondering how Nashville ended up in head-to-toe Fendi!

    • Carleenml

      I never heard of him, either…but I’m loving the face. Ignoring the suit.

    • Not a fan of The Hobbit movies then?

      • colleenjanel

        Nope. Never seen them.

        • That’s the only thing I have seen him in – he was featured on here quite a lot when they were doing publicity for it. He has a lovely Welsh accent.

    • Glam Dixie

      I think maybe there is a county singer with that same name because whenever I see his name it always sounds familiar but I always expect to see someone different that this guy.

      • colleenjanel

        I know there’s a Luke Bryan and a Sara Evans. I wonder if that’s what’s got me thinking he’s Country.

        • Glam Dixie

          Oh maybe that’s it. I can never tell any of those male country singers apart.

          • demidaemon

            I can only name two or three on sight and one of them is Blake Shelton, who is the only one I don’t have to think about before recognizing him.

  • PeggyOC

    Oh, Hollywood Powers-That-Be. Please stop trying to make this boy be the new Orlando Bloom. He’s not. The first one was bad enough. Please stop pushing.

  • Rhonda Shore

    I’d like a female version of that pantsuit. ANd I’d wear it w/a navy or deep chocolate brown silk T. And gold sandals…

  • Darcy H

    ” Play with your balls on your own time, boystars.”


  • Wink

    He looks much better with short hair. His black mulletty shag is more offensive than the matchy clothes.

  • Ok, yes, he’s a bit matchy, but… so pretty. And wearing a print and a colored tie, which normally I feel like you’d be all over. And so pretty.

  • unbornfawn

    Too much blue. Needs something to break up that plaid. Those pants look a little short.

  • uprightcitizen

    Those shoes would be great with some jeans, but that does look ridiculous. Even gray ones would be too matchy. And besides, the pants look so awkward, fit-wise. He’s not overweight, but they’re making him look thick and they definitely look too short (both of these things could be because of the hands in his pockets). There’s a way to do a single hand partially in your pocket that looks sophisticated. Men in catalogs have been doing it forever. But this isn’t it. It was very exciting to see this print, though. I have practically the same print on a pair of ski pants.

  • another_laura

    The BKs would probably not be discussing how rumply the suit looks if it would take its hands out of its pocketses, precious. I like the suit, don’t mind the shoes so much, but the blue belt makes me notice the blue shoes and so for me, the blue belt made this look an almost-ran. Pity.

  • Shawn EH

    He’s adorable!

  • LadyVimes

    His hair disturbs me. So black. So fake.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    I do love the shoes though.

  • c.

    With that hair, he’ll be a shoo-in for whatever Tommy Wiseau biopic he’s surely auditioning for.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    I don’t know who this guy is, but he’d be a great Roarke.

  • KT

    Ew. This is awful. His team needs to do a HELL of a lot better than this so that he can book as many jobs as possible before his Dracula: True Turd movie comes out and loses money for everyone.

  • jessica


  • Lilah

    I want those shoes.

  • Too matchy. Absolutely. Hate the tie, hate the shoes (with this look, otherwise they’re great) and hate the belt! Also, can we talk about the hair? Is it for The Hobbit pick-ups? If not, it really needs to go.

  • decormaven

    If sized correctly, accessorized properly and modeled in the right way, this suit would get a big thumbs-up from me. As shown, big ol’ stylist fail.

  • FuhUgh

    Whoa. That’s a scroll down fug if ever there was one. Ship this off to Alan Cumming, the only one who’d know what to do with this.

  • Scott Cooper

    The suit is at least a full size too small. Look at the shoulders!

  • Leigh David

    Being at work, not at Fire Island, gives me unlimited bitchiosity. Dude, it’s the interwebs – you’re wearing a Windsor spread collar with a four in hand knot. With your jawline buy, or borrow, a shirt with a forward point collar to blend with your monogrammed tie and those lapels. Sheesh.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    OK, how does a designer take a fabulous man like Mr Evans and make him look like that??? Enquiring minds etc

  • crash1212

    I love this suit. I would love it more if it fit him and if he didn’t have the ubiquitous penis tie situation going on. I’m so very over belly ties right now I can’t even.

  • ashtangajunkie

    There’s a suit? All I see is FACE. Hellloooooo!

  • boweryboy

    That suit is a dream.

    However between the greasy hair, the poor fit (the pants could easily use another 1/2 – 1 inch on the hem), and the matchiness of everything (and I’m partial to a little bit of matching here and there) it’s tragic.

  • demidaemon

    At least he wore a belt. Now we can start getting them to wear the right belt.

    He looks cute, though. Hate the shoes.

  • ChelseaNH

    Great suit. Wish it looked like it fit.

  • That suit, though. My husband would look phenomenal in that. This fella is definitely too matchy.

  • t bell

    Suit is beyond ugly and fit is not much better. Look like the fabric my mom recovered the couch in the den with circa 1990. It was an ugly couch too.

  • marlie

    I sort of hate the suit. BUT… a little bit of Luke Evans is *exactly* what I needed today. I’ll just look at the second picture, for the rest of the evening. Now, if you’ll excuse me…

  • prettybigkitty

    No Luke. Bad Luke.

  • quiltrx

    Love the head, love the shoes…maybe too much of a muchness in between. BUT I applaud him for stepping out of the usual.

  • e jerry powell

    I was about to say…

    KICK HIM in his balls. HANDS. POCKETS. NO.

    The thing is, the Fendi runway only has the pants styled without the jacket, which actually works better. Throwing both pieces together (particularly considering all the other fit issues here) is just too much.

  • guyfromhoboken

    The jacket looks a touch too small on him

  • Imasewsure

    Great suit wasted on a super hottie… or is it a super hottie wasted on a good suit gone bad? Same sh*t

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Can someone please convince him to get a haircut? He would look so hot with a decent style. Though maybe he needs it like that for those blasted Hobbit movies… just another reason to wish they were over.
