Get The Look: Tom Hardy

19 04 2011

My football team’s decline continues… we lost to the league whipping boys. What do you call the whipping boy’s whipping boys?

“A get the look” feature for you today and this one is a real treat. Today’s subject is Tom Hardy who is one of Hollywood’s rising stars, he has impeccable taste in fashion and he has featured in two of my favorite films: Inception and Layer Cake. I’ll be dissecting the man’s dress sense and which designers can get you the look. But first things first, why not take a look at some examples…

I realise that I’m usually a bit biased and pick men with a similar frame to mine when writing these get the look articles. Hardy however, has a broad shouldered, bulky frame with a big barrel chest: he’s currently working on the new Batman movie as the gargatuan Bane. It would be easy for him to look like a bit of a shaved gorilla in a suit – you see them on the doors of every nighclub up and down the country, but he wears a suit with ease sticking to some fundamental rules:

  • He wears similar colours from top to bottom for a slimming effect. Contrasting colors draw attention to curves.
  • Avoid double breasted suits like the plague. If your a big guy, a double breasted suit makes you look like a cube. Tom sticks to single breasted suits to accentuate the shoulders whilst cutting a nice line to the waist.
  • Pick items with vertical lines that accentuate height rather than bulk.

Have you ingested that advice like a ’61 Chateau Latour? By which I mean savoured it, examined the depth, appreciated the quality of the advice I’m giving you or have you necked it like a bottle of white lightning? I’m guessing the latter but I should move on; once more I have scoured the internet like some sort of crazed bloodhound. Although I no longer wish to fetch mangled pheasant, I want to fetch you a nice jacket… or something.
