it's Tom Ford I believe, he always makes wide lapels, I like his cut in general but i'd agree that those lapels are probably too wide for black tie.

The black shirt and black suit look has been around for more than a decade, especially without a tie. I see guys who actually look pretty good in it in casual settings. But you have to have a modern personal style to pull it off. Being trim and handsome helps considerably.

They are too wide for his complexion. P.S. Firth's jacket does not sit property and he is showing too much cuff.

It's Burberry actually. I watched the red carpet pre-show and someone asked him who had done his tux.

Colin Firth was Tom Ford. They're quite good friends, apparently.

they were both tom ford, according to here, here, and here.

colin firth was in a single man, so he'll probably get to wear tom ford to everything ever now

Sweet Jezuz, Pierce! A rudimentary Google image search uncovers additional, unspeakable horrors...the pic on the left, ostensibly, dates back to better days, before the onset of Samoa (R) Girl Scout Cookies (by the case)...

Colin Firth has it all down pat - right down to the gorgeous and age-appropriate wife.

It seems that most who dress in Tom Ford do it right. Brad Pitt is usually spot on, too.

I think this combo (black on black on black) would look much worse on a regular guy.

meh, I don't think it's that bad. of course it's not 'the rules' but this is hollywood, they're all actors, so naturally there's some sizzle with the steak.

But you missed all the chat about the gap behind his collar making his outfit a total failure. I thought he looked great. Only afterwards when someone mentioned it did I notice the collar, but it does have a gap.

But he still looks better than 80% of the men there purely by virtue of following the rules. Imagine how much worse that outfit would have been if he'd have worn an open-necked black shirt or something.
Admittedly now I look a little closer the jacket isn't a perfect fit but ultimately it's still a proper dinner jacket rather than some notch lapelled, vented, flap pocketed, bastard hybrid made out of PVC mock alligator skin.

Actually I think I might wear that

I agree with the previous poster that most of the men who go on the red carpet dressed by tom ford look pretty good, whether like or dislike his style in regular suiting I think the more dramatic proprtions suit the simplicity of black tie - allowing the wearer to show a bit of personal flair without breaking any long standing rules of etiquette.
