Tobias Menzies, Caitriona Balfe, and Sam Heughan attend the Television Academy Presents “Outlander” Panel Discussion at the NYU Skirball Center in New York City.
And now for another edition of Genetically Blessed People With Questionable Style.
Earring aside (because ugh), we’re gonna go ahead and declare Tobias the winner here. We don’t love the Johnny Cash black-0n-black look that so many men do, but we appreciate that there’s some contrast to his choices. Besides, it looks like the shirt and tie might both be more of a dark blue, which helps. And his hair looks good like that. Perfectly frames his face.
This would be fine (dull and unimaginative, but fine), except WE SHOULDN’T SEE YOUR PANTS ZIPPER, GIRL. And if the pants aren’t well constructed enough or they don’t fit well enough to fix that situation, then you need to ditch those pants. Or at the very least, but on a big honkin’ belt to cover your crimes.
It’s a fine enough suit, but the more we look at him (and the more of his body we got to see in Season 1), the more we think he should take a page from Henry Cavill and start wearing three-piece suits. He’s nowhere near as bulky as Cavill, so they should do good things for him. These skinny suits don’t really do much for him. The hair is, as per the uzh, problematic as hell. Just curl the whole thing up, Sam. That dippity-do wave on your forehead looks horrible.
And on another note (and one sure to promote yet another fan fatwa against us on social media), we think his coloring doesn’t always photograph well in these sorts of harsh-lighting situations. He always looks sallow. A little bit of bronzing powder would be just the thing. In fact, we’re pretty sure Tobias has some on his face, which is why it looks so good in this lighting.
This would be the point where we urge all three of them to start making out, but after last season, we don’t think we could stomach it.
