MAN OF THE MONTH – Tom Hardy
Having watched his break through performance in, inception, loved Warrior and after viewing his most recent enactment as Max, in Mad Max, Mr June had to be Tom Hardy. No matter how he is styled there is something consistently, super rugged about him.
He is often styled in classic, crisp black and dark navy suits made from fabrics with a slight sheen, which is interesting. When he steals the style show whilst donning a lighter weight tweed or linen suit in either; grey or baby blue. Which undoubtably flatters his complexion the most. If you too, happen to don a dark brown head of hair plus a hint of ginger in your beard, these are the perfect ingredients to pull off a rarer, lighter shade of suit.
When Hardy looks his best, he’s paired his suits with a classic white shirt, buttoned down and tucked in. Or a sneaky, brightly coloured cardigan, layered underneath, which not only offers depth to his outfit, but is a great alternative to a tie. Hardy is also right on trend with his contrasting elbow patches, this is a key spring/summer jacket and jumper direction across, surprisingly both menswear and womenswear.
Light blue is most definitely Tom Hardy’s colour, as additionally proven when dressing casually in a sheep skinned lined denim jacket, washed out jean and grey jumper, he actually manages to pull off a well known fashion sin with this denim on denim ensemble.
Furthermore his masculinity, remains unshaken even when accessorising with dogs, whether it’s a St Bernard, proudly stood in front or a puppy down his jacket. Here at Alexandra Wood our hats are off to you Mr Hardy!
The question left unanswered is, how would we dress him here at Alexandra Wood? We would start with a a lightweight tweed in a sage green with an over check to tap into that old school gent style. Put together effortlessly, with a crisp, white shirt, with a mid tan belt and matching pair of brogues.
