These 10 Famous Guys Are Making Suits Exciting Again
Some stylish tailoring that will make you forget all about the trends.

A quick spin through the most recent round of men's fashion shows will reveal a common thread: Suits, while not entirely out of favor, are not as popular as they were only a few years ago. That stalwart of men's fashion has lately been replaced by streetwear, athletic-inspired gear, and a whole bevy of much more casual—and very often much more colorful—clothes. But the suit can still be exciting. You just have to think a little outside the box in terms of color, fabric, and pattern. Here are 10 famous guys who are giving traditional tailored clothing a whole new life.
1 | TOM HIDDLESTON
Lately Hiddleston has become the king of the subtly patterned suit. In this case, pin dot is the perfect way to add a little unexpected personality to an otherwise traditional navy.
2 | RYAN GOSLING
Another way to add life without going too crazy is with a bold(ish) pinstripe.
3 | CHRIS EVANS
Less subtle is a patterned suit in a slightly more adventurous color. Burgundy and dark green are both great ways to break out of the standard suit rut.
4 | DAVID BECKHAM
Of course, there's always opportunities to wear lighter shades.
5 | DAVID OYELOWO
Playing with color—say, a brighter-than-midnight blue—is definitely something to think about if you want to spice up a formal event.
6 | A$AP ROCKY
Patterned lapels, Gucci slippers, no socks, and a non-traditional tie. Basically the perfect recipe for a street-style tux.
7 | HARRY STYLES
Styles has been doing a great job lately of showing how exciting a suit can be. Here, we see a move far away from the slim-cut suits of recent years—plus some pretty killer embroidery for an added touch of cool.
8 | JADEN SMITH
Satin with stripes is definitely a way to up—way up—your suit game.
9 | PHARRELL WILLIAMS
Okay, so it's not technically a suit. But a wild pattern with shorts—as long as the fit is pitch perfect—can be a seriously stylish summer look.
10 | RAMI MALEK
A suit that's every bit as punk rock as torn jeans and combat boots.
