That’s a Pete Campbell suit if ever we saw one. That blue looks amazing on him. He’s a guy who can handle color. He looks fantastic. Better than anyone has a right to expect from just putting on a nice blue suit and crisp white shirt, but like we said, these are the styles he was born to wear. He could be the King of the Skinny Tie if he wanted.

Living for the footwear here.

    He’s not my cup o’tea, but there’s no denying that he looks striking as hell here.

    • BazoDee

      Pretty much exactly what I was going to say. I’m largely apathetic towards him – but he looks amazing here. The suit color and cut are just perfect for him. And the fit is impeccable. I might even want a back view 🙂

      • Anna

        Whenever I’ve seen him on talk shows, he’s incredibly charming and polite – his personality definitely amps up his looks, but I’m a sucker for wit and manners.

        • Raspberry2012

          I think my absolute favorite talk show moment of his was right after the KStew scandal when she cheated on him with her “Snow White” director, Jon Stewart had him on “The Daily Show” less than a week later. And you wondered how it would all be handled, since the poor guy was in the news non-stop. So he comes out, sits down with JS, and JS just tackles the topic immediately. He goes, “Okay, I have something for you, something that’s going to make you feel better.” So RPatz is game for addressing the elephant in the room, and waits to see what the surprise is. And JS brings out two pints of Ben & Jerry’s and two spoons, hands one to RPatz, and they both immediately start to dig in, while JS is saying stuff like, “Okay, GIRL, you do NOT need to get your heart broken by some cheater!” And the audience loved it – RPatz was totally game, they had a little ice cream and made fun of the scandal for a minute, and then they got back to promoting whatever it was RPatz was promoting at the time. He was totally professional, sweet and charming, especially given the week he’d just had. So at the end, JS thanks him for being there, and says something to the effect of, “You know, you’re young and I know this sucks, but everyone in the world has been down this road at some point, and you’ll be okay.” And RPatz thanked him and shook his hand, etc. He was really a total doll about it, how he was able to go along with JS and poke a little fun at the shitty situation he was in at that time.

            What a sweet story, @Raspberry2012:disqus —
            I’ll have to look up this interview … I’m always willing to be won over 😉

  • Sarah

    Nice blue!

  • NBG

    Great look for him…but someone should tell him that they had razors in the 50s too.

  • Courtenay P

    damn alright. I’m feeling this.

  • Introspective

    gorgeous suit. fit and color are to die. cedric diggory cleans up real nice…

  • teensmom99


  • ashtangajunkie

    Gorgeous. I don’t quite get his appeal, but I throw a “Damn!” his way every now and then.

  • Danielle

    Man snaps! Loving the blue.

  • AC Simons

    Wow – those pants are hemmed just right. What a rare sighting!

    • wasabi

      I tried to have the cute little suit salesman boy from the mall hem my husband’s new suit pants just like this, and I was informed that was how old guys wear their pants. Needless to say, I was overruled and puddle pants it was. Hate it.

      • demidaemon

        WHAT? That sounds like ageism! Hmmmph.

        ETA: I’m assuming the salesman boy informed you. If it was your husband, I think some retraining is in order.

  • boweryboy

    He always looks stoned to me.

    • I think jet lagged and sleepy would be my go to thoughts.. 🙂

    • WendyD

      Is this a male variation of Resting Bitch Face?

    • J.W.

      Me, too. Especially in the first photos.

    • demidaemon

      I said the same thing. He looks pretty baked.

  • Best he’s looked in YEARS.

  • Noah

    Cute suit, but the douche is strong with this one.

  • clatie

    I love this, especially on him. I don’t know why, but I find myself rooting for him to become something other than Mr. Sparklevamp.

    • karinlee

      If he keeps making movies with David Cronenberg, he stands a good chance of accomplishing that.

  • Anna

    He should be a dedicated follower of this type of fashion.

    • FuhUgh

      He looks like the 6th Beatle here.

  • He’s getting some pretty incredible reviews for this The Rover movie and considering Guy Pearce (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) is involved I am not surprised. 🙂 And he sure is looking mighty fine just recently.

    • Kate Andrews

      I love Guy Pearce. Did you watch LA Confidential and Memento? He’s so wonderful in both.

      • marlie

        Memento is a long-time favorite. Awesome movie.

        • decormaven

          And LA Confidential. “Wear the smart-looking suit and ace them.”

  • WendyD

    Is this the same suit that Hiddles wore with SWINTON at Cannes? Regardless, Rob is totally pulling it off. It is a total English boys suit.

    • It has a strong The Beatles vibe. In fact I think Take That had almost exactly this same shade of blue for their Beatles tribute at one of their concerts.

      • mjude

        you are exactly right. beatles realness

        • Raspberry2012

          YES! As a die hard Beatles girl, I wholeheartedly agree!

  • KinoEye

    Toned-down Brighton mod, and he’s working it like gangbusters. I suppose it might’ve been too literal, and I love the shoes, but he’d kill with some Chelsea boots.

  • geans

    He looks awesome.

  • Jessica Smith

    I am beyond proud of myself for immediately thinking, “That’s a Pete Campbell suit.”

    • Denise Alden

      As well you should be! 🙂

  • flamingoNW

    Almost makes him seem appealing.

  • lrober03

    From the neck down, he looks like he’s in an editorial. The suit looks crisp and tailored and he’s walking with purpose. Neck up….not giving great face

  • Trent

    Great suit, great color, and I know he’s objectively attractive, but he’s never done anything for me. Just seems so zzzzzzzz…..

  • Raspberry2012

    Wow! I’m not an RPatz girl, but he looks damn fine. They should cast him in a Rat Pack-period movie – not as anybody in particular, but just so he can wander around in suits like this for a couple of hours.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I am enjoying his Dior Homme commercials on tv… driving a convertible on the beach is so… Ben Gazzara?

  • Cyprienne Zed

    Shave, Robert, shave! Shave your face! Shave it!

  • OffToSeeHim

    Just hate this douche so much. WHY does he always look high? Is it the color of his eyes or something, do they photograph weirdly?

    • Bexxx

      I think it’s because he’s always high.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I was going to comment that everything from the neck down looked great. Everything from the neck up is still RPattz…

  • nannypoo

    Shut your mouth, open your eyes – oh! there you go, last picture looks like you’re not even stoned. Nice job.

  • MilaXX

    That’s a really well put together look. A good fitting suit a nice pair of shoes. Suddenly te no longer looks like he needs a bath.

  • Constant Reader

    I like him in color — it livens up his complexion and bless him, he needs it.

  • Jennifer Bober

    Love the clothes. The stubble annoys.

  • macwell

    Great color. Great fit. Even though I can’t stand him, he can certainly wear the f**k out of a suit.

  • Shawn EH

    Somebody sign him for Ocean’s 14!

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’m living for the footwear too. Love it all.

  • If he had come up through the old studio system, he would always be cast as Robert Mitchum’s no-good sidekick. Of course, they would have strapped him to a chair and forcibly shaved him, too.

  • pattie capet

    blue boy!

  • Mona_Visa

    Getting better with age, this guy. This feels like some kinda WERQ to me.

  • Bexxx

    He looks fine AF. I’m really into it. I also like his stupid Dior ads. I think he’s hilarious since he spent the entire Twilight series publicly talking about how dumb a lot of the stuff in Twilight is.

    • KinoEye

      You inspired me to check out the Dior spots. As far as perfume/cologne ads go, it’s right on the mark. Led Zeppelin is a nice change of pace for music. And it manages to avoid being as ridiculous as Brad Pitt shilling Chanel No. 5 a few years back. “Are you going somewhere?… Where?”

  • OhSheila

    I still don’t see what most do when it comes to his face but this suit looks AMAZING on him.

  • Kate Andrews

    Very nice. I’m finally beginning to think of him as something other than a Sparkly Vampire.

  • txngyrrl

    This should be a WERQ post. This is an amazing suit for him.

    • demidaemon

      I think neckbeard automatically disqualifies one from a WERQ.

  • pugluv

    He looks amazing! Great color, those long legs look great in those pants….he is my eye candy for the day! LUV HIM!!!!

  • imspinningaround

    Did anyone else watch Kimmel last night? Pornstache without the ‘stache is kind of extremely handsome and I don’t know what world I’m living in right now.

    • Vegas Girl

      I didn’t watch it, but if I remember correctly he is Liev Schriber’s brother. So, there has to be some good genes hidden there somewhere (under the ‘stache, then?)

    • ShaoLinKitten

      And he’s 6’5″ with those terrifically broad shoulders. I’ve had a crush since The Wire. A very nice looking man, sans stache and mullet.

      • KinoEye

        Yep. He was the best thing about the last, horrible season of Weeds. That stache definitely hides the hotness in OITNB.

        • demidaemon

          As well as the aura ‘o’ douche and asshole that permeates the character. Which means he is very good at his job.

  • Mothra

    He looks great except for that horror of stubble. He needs to shave.

  • Well his first step to looking good was taking a Silkwood shower. For once he doesn’t look like he reeks of gin, cigarettes, and ass. And for this, I am truly grateful.

  • LadyVimes

    Matt Bomer must have taken him aside for A Chat. Snaps, RPats.

  • marlie

    I LOVE the suit. It fits him perfectly, the color is gorgeous, and I like the simple styling. I even like the fact that he’s smiling, and he’s mostly well-groomed. Attaboy!

  • Mr. J.

    Never seen him look better.

  • littlevase

    s w o o n

  • Does anyone else want to pull him to a barber, have them shampoo his hair, wash his face, give him a shave, and groom his eyebrows? Honestly, he always looks more than a little dirty to me. From the neck down…he’s great. From the neck up…ick-ick-ick.

  • Elise

    Oh, damn. This blue is great on him! Those boots belong on horse trainers so that is the only thing I would change. I’m so glad he is away from Twilight and *her.* He can finally grow as an actor, be himself and be around positive, outgoing people.
    He doesn’t smoke mj, he is just very shy.

    • Peter Jones

      ummm that dude was high as can be. there’s no shame in partaking in the MJ. all it does increase your quality of life. if you haven’t tried the good stuff, you wouldn’t know.

  • formerlyAnon

    He looks right off the House UnAmerican Activities Committee staff.

  • KT

    That’s a great suit. Still can’t stand his face, though.

    • ktr33

      Yes, fellow-KT, yes! again, in agreement.

      • KT

        Haha high five!

  • prettybigkitty

    I think he just out-Willised Willis. This is giving me life.

  • Why is he surrounded by the Secret Service? Is that a new accessory for men?

  • ktr33

    great suit, fits him perfectly, but his face isn’t for me. He just looks dumb.

  • asherlev1

    He LOOKS SO GOOD in his suits. The difference between him wearing this suit and him wearing a rough, scruffy outift is like day and night.

  • demidaemon

    It’s a fabulous suit, well fitted and perfectly hemmed. Can’t complain on that front. However, he still needs a belt AND his expression clearly reads “baked out of frickin’ mind.” And both those factors make my eye twitch.

  • TwiddlyStun

    Mid-century dudes must be clean-shaven, though. That mess on his face does not make this more modern, it makes it sad. Shave him and I’ll expect him to start crooning. Doesn’t he look like a crooner?

  • jif

    Well done, Cedric Diggory.

  • Laylalola

    I loved the early Pete Campbell blue suits on the show but really really don’t think this color looks good on RPat, or maybe something in the leg is too tight. I always think this seeing the photos on other sites. I’m surprised at how well received the look is, actually.

  • Kimberly Cruea

    I can see a young Elvis wearing this suit. R Patz looks great here!

  • ChelseaNH

    Now if he could just get some mid-century barbering…

    • theblondette

      He would look PERFECT with period hair! There’s something faintly cartoonish in RPattz’s face, so I think he should just embrace it and dress as a character.

  • Columbinia

    This makes me think of Bobby Darin.

  • JP

    I wonder if getting that cologne campaign prompted him to shower regularly. This is the most cleaned up I’ve seen him, well, ever.

  • EEKstl

    Yeah, he’s pretty much WERQing it.
