Posted on July 14, 2016

David Oyelowo attends the 2016 ESPY Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

 

This is far from perfect for a lot of reasons, but the first impression is damn good:

It’s a fabulous color and we love the subtle pattern of the shirt paired with the black tie. We probably wouldn’t have gone with those shoes, given how dark the tie is, even though brown definitely works with a green suit. And while we can salute the fact that this is tailored to within an inch of its life, the fact remains that it looks a bit too tailored to our eyes. For one, the silhouette gives him ladyhips; for another, the sleeves and pants are both a skosh too short. It would’ve worked better if the jacket hadn’t been double-breasted, especially since we think a vest looks odd paired with it.

Still, A for effort. B + for overall impact. B – on the details.
