If there were a walking, talking endorsement of what great tailoring and a super cool attitude can do for a man - Ryan Gosling is it. The Hollywood ‘It Boy' mixes Cary Grant smooth with Brando rebellion for a super sexy pared down, suited and booted style.
Slightly preppy, slightly classical but with an edge of mod-relaxed style, the key to getting your Gosling on is in the staple pieces like a well cut, slim fit blazer and jeans or a beautifully tailored suit - even try a textured fabric with a hint of quirkiness for that more youthful, on-trend feel.
Slim fit denim, suit pants or chinos are key wardrobe items for day teamed with simple white T-shirts, collared shirts (try the tuxedo look!) or a neutral comfy knit for a stylish day look that can be taken into night with the addition of a sharp blazer.
The devil is in the detail with accessories taking on a more mature tone with quality and classic style being key to hark back to old Hollywood super-smoothies. Tan loafers, lace up brogues with a tapered toe or flat, pointed shape or dark leather trainers take care of footwear with attitude.
Watches, belts, ties, bracelets, wallets, sunglasses and specs and even a money clip stay simple, classic and timeless to add a classy feel to the quirkier, pared-back style of dress.
