In a Cannes-free world, it behooves all of us to take a moment each day to remember and reflect on Cannes Festivals of yesteryear – specifically the fashion part of it, since that’s what we’re all here for. We had a little gown showdown last week, pitting several of the Cannes red carpet Style Queens against each other, but today, we’re taking a more casual approach. It fits with the theme, you see. Today’s collection of men are not serving you high formalwear, but a studied (mostly), styled (sometimes) celebrity take on appropriate beachwear. In other words, it’s sockless boys at photo calls.
Mr. Pretty gives us something of a nautical vibe, as if he’d just stepped off his yacht. It’s an image that suits him.
R Patz, serving up his particular brand of disheveledness. We always loved that jacket.
Childish Gambino showing us the best in wookie-adjacent style.
Matt Smith, wandering in from Happy Hour.
Unapologetically leaning into the whole Riviera vibe. We love it.
Woke up on the beach with no memory of the previous 18 hours.
A fun, gorgeous take on Elton-wear for straight boys.
Serving us what every other guy on this page wishes he had the nerve to do.
It’s okay to admit your breath was taken away momentarily. The Pine knows what he’s doing to you.
