Phwoooar!

You saw what the ladies of The Dark Knight Rises wore to the London premiere last night (see here and here), now it’s turn for the men ;-) FYI, all of them scrubbed up pretty well, actually. SO, let’s drool now check them out, shall we?

The main man that is Christian Bale was looking beyond scrumptious! I really can’t take my eyes off him…

…so much so, I’m willing to overlook the slight (HA!) sartorial faux-pas he made here: the trouser hem could go up a little bit. Clad in a black two-button notch lapel Gucci ‘Signoria’ suit, white dress shirt, black silk tie and black leather belt, he cut *quite* the dapper figure at the red carpet.

Awwww… !

His missus Sibi too looked gorgeous. It warms the cockles of my heart to see how loved-up these two still are… Bless!

My fave dresser of the night was the Prada-clad Cillian Murphy, who plays Dr Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow in the film (and Robert Fischer in Inception). He went for an immaculately cut ‒ of course with the right trouser length!! ‒ two-button notch lapel suit, teaming it with a pale blue open-neck dress shirt, spiffy brown lace-ups ‒ and a snazzy pocket square which catches the blue from his shirt.

Yep, yep, yep, it’s the thoughtful addition of the pocket square which injects a sense of intrigue into his simple outfit.  We know a certain someone in India who resorts to this same trick time and again ‒ and comes out in triumphs every bloomin’ time… :-D My only gripe with Cillian’s outfit is that I’d have liked the pocket square done up in a puff, and not the ‘Presidential’ style he went for, as the silk/satin of the pocket square would’ve stood upright and not sunk in to the pocket like Cillian’s was.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt too impressed, which is hard not to, when you turn up in Burberry Tailoring, the made-to-measure men’s suiting service from the heritage British label.  Indeed it was a very well cut check three-piece suit, but it was the polka dot tie ‒ that I was raving about since it was sent out on the Burberry menswear A/W’12 runway back in January ‒ which got me excited!!!

Joe & his red button…

It’s great to see Joe persist with the ‘red button’ on the buttonhole in public events; it’s to garner publicity for this nascent production company, hitRECord, he’s been fronting.

Tom Hardy, with fiancée Charlotte Riley, at the London premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises"

Tom Hardy. Burberry trench coat. Full of swagger. I couldn’t properly see the suit he had on underneath but I did notice that the trousers didn’t bunch around the ankles ‒ and the foine piece of craftsmanship he was sporting south of his ankles :-) Mr Hare ‘Fitzgerald’ lace-ups they are, and you can get them from here. Hurry up guys, they are on SALE ‒ good investment piece they’d be!!!

Morgan Freeman at the London premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises"
Morgan Freeman…

Morgan Freeman was looking well dapper in a finely cut suit, black loafers and purple dress shirt. Guys, watch and learn!

P.S. I’d like you all to have a look at this Burberry Tailoring spot. Not ‘cos of the bril soundtrack [it’s Morning Runners by Burning Benches, FYI :-)], but because of the soooper stud Eddie Redmayne!! You’d have seen him opposite Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn… :-)
