    There aren't actually cuffs, it's just where there's a minor crease across both ankles. And is the above a typo, or are you "in awe" at how low the rise is (not judging, just asking :p)?

    Uh, it was a joke. :sarcasm:

    Regarding its appearance, while the color may appeal to those who appreciate the sartorial avant-garde, its deficiencies (noted above) offset any points gained thereby and detract from the overall look.

    Gosling looks amazing. Look how he stands out in a sea of boring ass black tuxedos. To call that look awful is an obvious sign that you´re losing your sight.

    +1, it also appears that he has no waist covering

    Black tie should never be about "popping out" from the crowd, it's all about the subtleties. He looks way too Ryan Seacrest in this getup

    Simply awful. Sleeve length, flap pockets, button stance too low (i.e. definitely not 3 button standard), tapered trousers, the shoes....

    Colin Firth's suit had a really low button stance. It didn't look right to me.

    Other than the flap pockets I think it's a good looking tux. Unfortunately, it would appear that Beckham borrowed his little brother's really good looking tux. And used whatever shoes were laying around.

    Haha - didn't King James describe St. Paul's cathedral as "aweful", meaning inspiring awe?

    I think he dressed down on purpose, so he wouldn't look prettier than his girl...:laugh: She is amazingly hot though. Her dress looked very wardrobe malfunction prone, I was waiting for cohen to step on her 15 ft long dress.

    :laugh: i know you were joking mang, as was i.

    anyhow, i know there are technical issues with his fit, as are with most fits. i just liked that he was going for something different, and all in all, i think he looked quite good doing it. that is all.

    So many of the mens pants were too long. I disgree with the overall thumbs up on Hanks. Something not right with the waist suppresion and it made him look as though he had given birth previously in his life.

    This thread makes me wonder if there is a parallel universe, where the female equivalent of SF mocks the hideous gowns the celebs wear. All the while oogling the men based purely on visual appeal... :confused:

    You probably just aren't used to seeing someone actually do it right.

    I am and he didn't. The mid suppresion was an inch too high, maybe more. It looked too womanly on him.

    The supression is exactly where it should be, just above the hip bone:

    Moving that lower would completely throw the balance all to shit imo

    I agree. Hanks looks great and his tux fits perfectly, my only criticism(Although its just personal preference) is his bow tie. Its a bit big, and it kind of sags like a clown's bow tie. Anyone else feel this way...?
