The Best Dressed List: The Men of the 2011 Academy Awards

This year the freshest silhouette  for men was the six button double  breasted tux.

Hugh Jackman (in Ermenegildo Zegna), Jake Gyllenhaal (in Salvatore Ferragamo) and Tom Hanks all looked spectacular in it. Caveat emptor: you must be tall and lean to wear this kind of tux.

The one button jacket was still going strong again this year. Jeremy Renner got it absolutely right in this shawl collar version from John Varvatos.

Justin Timberlake looked exceptionally good in a wide peak lapel version from Tom Ford.

Finally, it was refreshing to see Robert Downey Jr. riff on the tuxedo and get it exactly right.  The tux is actually navy. The piping along the lapels is quite sharp.

I want to run out and duplicate this look for myself!


What a difference a year makes: In 2010, both RDJ and Jeremy Renner were on my worst dressed list!
