Every year, Hollywood’s finest head to the Oscars, hoping to win a coveted golden statue. The Oscars may be a black-tie affair, but that didn’t stop Hollywood’s leading men from switching out the traditional black tuxedo for something a bit more exciting. This year bow ties were hands down the accessory of choice for the evening. Ruffled front shirts & bright blue velvet made the list of sartorial standouts this year. Here are the guys who really delivered on film’s biggest night.

Moonlight screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney wore a head-to-toe all white look; Justin Timberlake opted for a classic black & white look with a birds eye dinner jacket & contrasting black pants. Ryan Gosling stole the show wearing a 1970’s inspired ruffled front shirt with a black bow tie making us all reminiscent of the days of bad prom photos. However, Hollywood’s leading man pulled it off! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wore a blue velvet dinner jacket with inset piping. All of these red carpet looks can be shopped in store & online.

What a night for men’s fashion at the 2017 Golden Globe awards on Sunday! Hollywood’s finest brought their Black Tie A-game this year & were not afraid to stand out with high fashion looks. Oversized bows, wide lapels & shall collars ruled the red carpet along with velvet & patterned jackets.  Double breasted & Navy blue tuxedos also made quite a bit of appearances this year. Here are our favorite looks from the red carpet.

John Travolta brought on the bling with a Lurex Stripe Jacket; Justin Timberlake rocked an iridescent jacquard Jacket & Hugh Laurie wore a Tone on Tone Plaid Jacket but hands down – Donald Glover in a Velvet Brown suit won the award for best dressed. Actors such as Ryan Gosling & Jeremy Renner went a more classic route & wore White Dinner Jackets with black bows.

What’s trending for Fall? As temperatures drop and pumpkin spice lattes creep back into our lives, only one thing comes to mind – it’s time for some new clothes!

This seasons suitings are all about pattern. Micro checks, window panes.. wear them with a shirt and tie, wear them with a t-shirt and trainers, wear them all winter long! Donegals and herringbones have also transformed into business wear (no thicker than flannel, but twice as textured). Their flecks and patterns contrast an everyday solid shirt or add a salt & pepper effect to your patterned shirts. In other words – look sharp & stay warm this winter! What more could you ask for? On those bitter cold winter days layer one of our Italian cashmere v-necks or crewnecks for an added layer of workwear-style insulation.

If “off the rack” isn’t cutting it this Fall, try designing your own. We offer a limitless made-to-measure program as well as an exclusive ready to wear collection. Our MTM program offers hundreds of cloths from the world’s finest mills—most of which are exclusively available at Victor Talbots. Combine that with multiple lapel widths and styles, single and double-breasted options, extensive canvasing options, multiple lining options, dozens of button options and more.

Your accessory game is up next. Velvet is a classic wintery fabric option for your cold season suit or tuxedo accessories – pair with some high impact suspenders & suede/patent combo loafers and your last season suit looks & feels fresher than ever. Bows reign over long ties this season but don’t worry – we have tons to choose from. We offer a classic bow, fashion bow, 1 3/4″ bow and a cigar bow. We have silk/velvet combo bows, patterned/solid combos (anything you can think of – we have).

The moral of the story – Don’t be afraid to break the rules & stand out this fall. Invest in a winter suit – your closet will thank you. It’s not just a winter suit, it’s an every winter suit.

We have carefully chosen unique fabrics & styles specially designed and fitted exclusively for Boomer. This season he will be featured in more tailored silhouettes with narrower lapels, trimmer pants and British spread collars. His suits feature blue & gray base fabrics with great micro & macro plaid designs with working button hole sleeves. Clean neckwear including some knit ties, as well as dot designs will be worn showing off our famous windsor knot. His neckwear will feature lavenders, blues & grays which always bring out the best of Boomer’s features. All ensembles are outfitted with a classic pocket square complimenting the neckwear.
