Red-Carpet Look Book: Colin Firth

Let it be said, this man knows how to wear a tux. Meticulously tailored, black-tie makes Colin Firth shine. Good thing, because otherwise he’s utterly unremarkable: sharply dressed, but so conservatively so as to be bland. Monochromatic suit-shirt-tie combos evoke early-aughts Regis Philbin; suits with large lapels evoke boring bankers. For more casual affairs, Firth likes to unbutton the top buttons — but, unlike fellow unbuttoner George Clooney, Firth takes it a bit too far, toeing the chest-hair exposure line. He also shies away from color, in general: Suits are black or gray. Ties are black or gray. Can’t a stylist somewhere at least show this man something in a navy?
