A man in a suit (or overall well-dressed) is something I appreciate very much, and I am almost certain I am not the only one. “Crazy, Stupid, Love” is one of those movies that captures everything : love, laughter, sadness and surprise. On top of all this, the women and men had a great sense of style that just made the entire movie all the more pleasant for the eyes.
Jacob Palmer (played by Ryan Gosling) and Cal Weaver (played by Steve Carell) show us exactly why a man should hold in high regards the way he dresses himself.
The same rules for suits apply also tothe casual look: simple is better. A simple grey shirt does the job on looking comfy and laid back.
This is probably my favorite Jacob look of the movie. I’m a huge fan of navy, and an even bigger fan when it is combined with brown or beige. This tan / navy color combination catches the eye and makes a statement. Have you ever seen anyone look as good eating a pizza than him?
End of school year means one thing: summer is on it’s way. And Cal welcomes summer with open arms in this light grey suit with a white blouse. Clean, crisp, and ideal color combination for the warmer days.
It was time for Jacob to go a tad out of the box and opted for a rich brown / burgundy suit. His shirt is simple which gives room for the suit to be the main component. Still remaining in the neutral tones, this is a suit color you rarely see, but definitely works!
In this scene Cal followed in Jacob’s mighty fine foot steps and sported a navy suit. This type of navy is a bit brighter but balances out great with the black shirt. Such a great look especially for dark-haired men. Jacob goes for the more casual approach and opts for a simple black v-neck sweater which works just as well as one of his suits. These men are clearly ready for a night out!
So as the old saying goes, if you want to look the part, you’ve got to dress the part. A confident man wears his clothes with ease, but also feels confident on the inside. And I want to take a moment to personally thank Ryan Gosling for looking like this. He’s made me, and many others out there, a very happy person. 🙂
