These three gentlemen all have bow ties as well. However, the first gentlemen is wearing a notch lapel with a satin finish. The notch lapel is a bit more conservative than a peak lapel, which is what the second gentleman is wearing. He is wearing a peak lapel with a satin finish unbuttoned. The gentleman to the far right is wearing a shawl collar, which we saw a ton of last awards season. A shawl collar is completely rounded with no distinct edges. Typically when someone rocks a shawl lapel, it is darker than the usual midnight blue suit/tux. In this case, he is wearing a solid black tux with a bow tie and black buttons on his shirt that stand out significantly, like the gentlemen to the far left.
Brad and Angelina went the traditional route in matching black attire. Brad rocked a bow tie and black tux. His jacket was a peak lapel with a satin finish. He also had piped pocketing, which gives a tux, or any suit, a very nice and clean finish. His one-button jacket is essential for a tux. He paired his tux with a pair of conservative yet edgy black shoes with his pants lying at a full break.
Christopher Plummer is wearing a solid velvet midnight blue suit witha matching blue tie. His jacket is one button and has a light color of trim around his lapels all the way down and also around the pockets. This really makes the blue velvet pop.
Finally, check out our own D. Jones client and star of Bravo TV's Most Eligible Dallas Matt Nordgren! Matt met the Dalai Lama at an Oscar watching party. We're happy to see Matt was wearing D. Jones attire.
