FROM THE STYLE REFEREE – ‘BACK OF THE NET’
NAVY ENSEMBLE EXECUTED IN LOW-KEY YET MASTERFUL MANNER AT (OWN) FILM PREMIERE
Not got loads to say about Craig’s look except that his straight take on classic navy demonstrates how strong straight can look on an older fella if done convincingly. Unfussy, manly, straight. The suit is Brunello Cucinelli (click), as is shirt & tie. A handsome, yet restrained tie knot with dimple, blades slightly splayed. Black shoes teamed with navy suit, does looks chic and tight. Pal of mine styled this, Mr.William ‘It Was Really Nothing’ Gilchrist. He can be detected just slightly in the deployment of the pocket square, other than that he’s pretty, pretty invisible. Which is good. Craigs stubble and furrowed/drawn face and neat smart hair cut helps a-lot. No-one wants to see well-fed old bald bloke in a suit. Literally, no-one. Too, too many of those hanging about as it is. Think on, Christmas business-men wine & dinners…Another potent device sartorially is to have madly fit sort like Rooney Mara as part of the story, again black with the navy looking chic. The film looks pretty exciting too from the trailer (click). Reminds me, must get hair cut, and re-furrow jowls.
PS. Think Daniel Craig actually achieves older man casual style rather well too. Unusual in an actor.
