Man of the Month – Matthew McConnaughey

Matthew McConnaugheyMatthew McConnaughey, the charismatic star of the recent hit film Dallas Buyers Club, and who could forget his humorous fist pumping/humming scene in The Wolf of Wall Street?

Then there was his ‘performance’ in Magic Mike, and with a physique like Matthew’s, well… He’s an amazing, adaptable actor just calling out to be dressed in a perfectly cut suit. The cream dinner suit Matthew wore to the Bafta awards was unlike any other demure or ‘safe’ attire worn prior, the neutral colour palette expressed his impeccable personal style and an air of confidence.

Matthew McConnaugheyHere at Alexandra Wood, we like to push the boat out that little bit further.

I'd dress him in a pale grey lightweight plaid with a pastel pink over check, cut to precision, slim trousers and a waistcoat.

Pale grey and pastels are a surprisingly perfect colour combination, ideal for framing masculine features; such as muscular arms, broad shoulders and a strong jawline.

Whilst the type of fit mentioned hides a multitude of sins from; smoothing waistlines to enhancing legs and during these HOT summer months, grey looks great with a tan! Why not try it out for yourself?

A further unanimous decision at AW is to accessorise Matthew for fun, with a audacious pocket watch! Accompanied by his irresistible charm and rather cheeky grin! A head turning combination, with a rather dapper result. We salut you Mr suave McConnaughey!
