Turn that frown upside down.
My god from the eyebrows down he looks like Cary Grant – just cover his forehead – the resemblence is there
I never noticed that before now, but yes, definitely Cary Grant!
I see it. Glad I am not the only one who scrolled down til his receding hairline was covered just to see what he looked like! Prior to reading your comment, my thought was what a truly pretty man face he has, but sometimes I do get distracted by the hairline.
Phyllis – what fabric is this, do you think? To me, it’s another horrible Tom Ford “OMG, look at the shiny objects and the wrinkles in the thighs(and other parts)’ suit. Whatever happened to using a nice wool, guys? Plenty of different patterns and weaves that won’t wrinkle, hang well, and look splendid. Cary Grant wore wool all the damn time and looked fabulous. Wrinkles are cheesy, Ford – cut it out. You are not helping your clients with this stuff. Wrinkles in the thighs and the crotch do NOT an elegant man make.
It looks like a silk for sure the beautfiul sheen is chracteristic of silk. It may be a silk-linen blend with all of that wrinkling,which I agree it looks pretty bad. Silk dupioni wrinkles like that too so I think the surface of this fabric might be similiar to dupioni
he needs a more butt-y chin to be cary, but I could see him playing him in a movie (make this happen Hollywood, I’d have to bring a fan to the movie)
It would be fun to see him attempt that Cary Grant accent/inflection, that is so unique to Cary Grant. I agree wholeheartedly, make this dream a reality, Hollywood!
Cary Grant or even Gregory Peck, with touch of Don Draper. I like this new brooding gravitas of his; apparently he’s decided to shed the golden pretty-boy image of his younger years (although that wasn’t hard on the eyes either.)
While I do love me a knit tie (so retro!), a pattern with some color wouldn’t have killed him.
my thoughts exactly.
He’s such a delicious looking man, but nothing here is working for me. That flimsy-looking fabric just doesn’t lend itself to the slimmer cut of pant he’s got going on, and the black tie just looks massive next to all the other light colored clothing.
Yummy blue steel. Nice suit, if a bit rumpled.
Suit too shiny and wrinkly, tie too wide and knubbly, hem too tight, shoes quite nice actually, collar wrong proportion somehow. This is an English guy dressing himself without help. Jude, please hire Ewan’s gays.
Nice! This is a DYI job if I ever saw one. Ewan? He looks way too sharp to conclude he puts it all together without some help. (Sorry Ewan, that’s NOT an insult, babe!)
He looks about as happy to be there as his suit looks happy to be on him.
he looks great…its been awhile jude
Oh, Jude, just smile.
Oh honey no. Too tight, too shiny, hems wrong for those shoes. Just no.
Hey Jude, don’t be so sad.
In future, try to get your mind to sing “don’t make it bad.”
Wrinkles are not your friend.
Those pants look a couple of inches short.
So do his legs. Look at that first pic….
Never noticed how stumpy his stems are before!
We apologize Jude… we clearly pissed you off…. nice suit but raw silk is always too wrinkly for me
Put. On. A Belt.
I believe Tom Ford often uses side adjusters on trousers, which is pretty traditional, so no belt needed.
The comments here are more frequently getting filled with people who don’t know what they’re talking about but think by leaving a catty comment, they think it sounds like they do. He looks amazing, great look for him!
Ladies and gents, I give you mansplaining.
Thank you. Catty comments are the norm here, and have nothing to do with how much knowledge a person has on clothes. It’s opinion. And it’s a ton of fun.
Does it count as mansplaining when we’re talking about menswear and the comment isn’t specifically directed at women? I can identify core mansplaining behavior, but I’m always unsure about the fuzzy edges.
In any case “people who disagree with my opinion just don’t know what they’re talking about” generally doesn’t fly unless accompanied by some clear expertise.
He looks cranky and tired, actually. Are you cranky and tired too?
Oh honey you picked the wrong place for your little snit fit.
He’s aging well. In a “I eat carbs and drink booze and am comfortable being less gorgeous than I was” way.
And somehow that’s sexier, to me, than those who fight it tooth and nail.
He seems to be getting more handsome. I’m not sure about his shoes, but I like the suit. I also like the way he’s dealing with the hairline issue. I think he’s hot.
Nice! I got no complaints.
I like the suit, but I don’t think I can get on board with the knitted ties. And I’m an avid knitter.
But the pant length is perfect & it’s Jude, who I love, douchiness & all.
AHHHHHH — such a nice change after Channing Tatum and Jeremy Renner!
Tom Ford is serving these male celebs well as this looks quite good on him. It is a bit refreshing to see a celeb who hasn’t taken the Tom Cruise embalm yourself potion yet…he’s all right.
Iron. It’s not just something you press at the gym.
I am bothered by the waistband being so low relative to the jacket button. One inch closer to each other so we don’t see the shirt and I would be okay with it. Perhaps if he took his hand out of his pocket.
Also, what is with the looooooonnnnnnnngggggg shoes? I realize that has been the fashion for men the past couple of years but how do these guys walk up stairs? The stairs in the NYC subway often have a very shallow run. Someone in these shoes would have to go up duck-footed, or sideways.
On the plus side, that color is lovely on him. Also, he is one of the few guys who I think can consistently get away with face scruff. And we need to have a piercing-eyes contest between him and Daniel Craig.
I’ve noticed that a lot on Jude Law and I’ve come to the conclusion he just has big feet
big feet = big ====>
Nice! We are all class here at TLo Manor!
I enjoy him.
Thank you TLo, for the Friday yummy. Nothing like a gorgeous man in a gorgeous suit to start the weekend well!
Ugh, he borrowed one of Eddie Redmayne’s knit ties. Other than that and the rumpled-y-ness, yum.
He really does have one of the sexiest mouth/chin/jawline combos around.
Suit does’t fit …especially the pants…creepy!
Not such a great look but given how many men show up on the red carpet looking like they’re on the way to Home Depot I applaud him for at least wearing a suit.
Guy, This Is Not Your Suit.
I used to have dreams about this guy, and I think they’re coming back.
I like the cut of the jacket. The trousers are a little too slim, but he seems to favour the very narrow. I’ve no problem with the shiny but I quite like shiny suits. Looks like a wool/silk blend perhaps. A shame it’s creasing so badly. I like the sharp monochrome because that silver is bright enough without a colour.
Also, it’s perfectly fine, even commendable, to wear no belt if the trousers fit. Those trousers might have side adjusters, we can’t see with the jacket on. And with such a slim cut a belt would disrupt the line.
Knit ties are coming back, unfortunately. This look would have been elevated with a patterned tie. And a more pleasant demeanor.
What’s with the bitchface, Jude?
I’m not digging the knit tie nor the fit and creases in his pants. Designers & stylists should take RC photography into account when selecting fabrics for their clients.
Jude still does it for me tho…
Pants too tight, jacket too small. We should not be able to see where the shirt comes out of the pants when the jacket is buttoned. TIe matches shoes. Bad.
He looks sad, shiny, and wrinkled.
The pants are doing him no favors. His legs looks disproportionately short. And I do not like the knit tie or the shiny shoes, which look like they were made for a much taller man.
Wrinkles, wrinkles. Maybe I missed this, but are belts for suit pants considered optional for dudes now? The lack of belt just makes me think of lady pants.
Always has been. Many tailors really dislike belts with suit trousers. Google some pics of Connery as Bond for instance.
You know I don’t think the pants are doing him any favors, or the tie – but I am seriously liking those moody looks he’s throwing.
Ugh, there’s a lot wrong with that suit … this is what people who don’t wear suits much look like in a suit (wrinkly, shirt hanging out, forgot a belt or something important, angry face). So … yeah … it’s OK Jude darling, let’s get you out of that awful suit and into my bathtub.
hey Jude – this outfit is horrible!
Does anyone know what might cause those wrinkles on his pants? Did he roll his pants up when he was in the car???
