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 That stalwart of men's fashion has lately been replaced by streetwear, athletic-inspired gear, and a whole bevy of much more casual—and very often much more colorful—clothes.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.

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.

Another way to add life without going too crazy is with a bold(ish) pinstripe.

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.

Of course, there's always opportunities to wear lighter shades.

Playing with color—say, a brighter-than-midnight blue—is definitely something to think about if you want to spice up a formal event.

Patterned lapels, Gucci slippers, no socks, and a non-traditional tie. Basically the perfect recipe for a street-style tux.

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.

Satin with stripes is definitely a way to up—way up—your suit game.

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.

A suit that's every bit as punk rock as torn jeans and combat boots.
