We admit, we experienced a small amount of disappointment at the sight of this:
His Black Panther poledance looks were, in our unhumble opinion, the very best menswear looks seen on a celebrity promotional tour in years. Some of the most exciting, stylish, and envelope-pushing celebrity style looks of the last half-decade were worn by him in the last six months. That’s a lot to live up to; especially as you transition from star of one of the most popular movies of all time to ensemble player in what will almost certainly wind up being one of the most popular movies of all time. The bolder aspects of his Black Panther tour style, like his exploration of embellishments and non-traditional men’s suiting shapes, are not to be found here. Instead, he’s relying on bold colors and an unusual choice of shirt to make his statement. It turns out that he’s no less fashionable on this tour, but we’re not as in-love with this look as we’d like to be. There’s just too much of a disconnect between the shirt and the suit. Love the pairing of suit and shoes, but the shirt throws everything off.
