Remember Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love.? You know, when he was decked out in those sharp-shouldered rigs teaching Steve Carrell to wear ten layers at once? Well the source of those attention grabbing suits was Albert Hammond Jr.’s line of tailored goods for L.A. shop Confederacy. The exclusive pairing debuted back in 2009 to success but once that flick hit theaters, guys hit the store’s racks. Hip gents hungry for some hand-tailored-in-Brooklyn notch lapels have had to wait it out since then but Confederacy finally has the lineup back in stock, including the on-trend burgundy two-piece above. While we can’t guarantee Gosling-levels of lust from the ladies when you pick one up, we can say it’s a well-tailored leg up over the other schlubs out there.
When it comes down to it, it’s the big screen where fashions are immortalized. Not the runway, not the street. It’s Marcello Mastroianni in that impeccable black suit in 8 1/2. It’s Richard Roundtree rocking head-to-toe leather in Shaft. As the following proves, it’s a collection of images that will never go out of style.
We can’t turn you into Ryan, but we can give you his haircut. Here’s what to tell your barber:
It’s clippered in back halfway up your ears, gradually longer on the sides, and parted with pomade on whichever side your hairline is higher. (Yep, most guys have a good side and a bad one.)
Everywhere we looked, Ryan Gosling was there. On-screen, stealing hearts and smashing skulls. On the red carpet, embarrassing the rest of young Hollywood. And even in the streets, breaking up quarrels with style and grace. Gosling owned 2011. We count the ways.
