Trend Alert – The Emmys 2019

Award season can be so tough for men. I mean, when the dress code is Black Tie, there is only so much you can work with.  Some try to push the envelope and dare to be different whilst others play it safe.


This year, I was so excited to the adoption of a new, or should I say old, colour.  The brown suit is back!  And its back in a big way baby.


Here is a list of my favourite looks and bit about the men who wore them:


Daniel Levy  (Schitt’s Creek) – wearing an amazing Prada double breasted tuxedo with contrast black satin lapel.


William Jackson Harper  (The Good Place) – wearing the coolest lounge suit with black polka dots.  By Brookes Brothers.


Brett Gelman (Stranger Things) – in a reddish brown Hugo brown tuxedo with contrast black satin shawl lapel. Such a 70’s feel.


Tony Hale (Veep) – Redefining the brown suit, in his custom Brioni number.  Classic in every way, except for the colour.


Michael K Williams (Boardwalk Empire) – looking so smooth in this silky looking chocolate brown Berluti tux with chocolate satin lapels.


I hope these looks inspire you a little for you next black tie event, or possibly even your wedding.  I can’t wait to make my next brown suit.
