    No dimple, but it's better than most stars.

    heh, man of steel of course.

    my opinion: looks awful. looks like a groomsman, or worse the groom, at a crappy wedding.

    I'd give him points for trying, but that suit and shirt look pretty ill-fitting to me.

    Two things that bother me are the low gorge (from the 80s?) and the tie knot. At least he's trying, though.

    The tie knot is shaped a bit like the Superman "S" shield, no?

    Deliberate or coincidence? You decide.

    Just because the guy puts on a grey suit doesn't make him Cary Grant. I don't see anything special about the way he dresses. Furthermore, he doesn't hold the candle to Pitt's style, IMO. Your subject is mediocre at best.

    Yeah, Earthmover, that dredges up repressed memories of one of my first suits in the eighties.

    Now for the real reason I'm posting: DarkNWorn, your avatar rules. Any fan of AlizÃ[​IMG]e is...as perverted as me.

    I disagree. Most young stars don't care to dress up, and when they do, it's not usually to my taste, but they at least usually demonstrate some sense of personal style. Ghastly hairstyling and horrific tie knot aside, this guy looks like he's just wearing something his publicist or 'stylist' (or mommy) told him to wear.

    He may be a perfectly fine young man, and he certainly gets points for effort, but seriously -- Cary Grant? Heretic.

    As much as I love the three-piece suit, and as pleased as I am to see it getting some publicity, the one Routh wears in SR isn't doing it for me:

    Even with the vest buttoned ...

    To be perfectly fair, Christopher Reeves wasn't all that stylish as Clark Kent in the originals. Probably on purpose... he's supposed to look like an average joe.

    True, and I understand that the three-piece fits the vaguely retro feel Singer is going for. But the three-piece suit has enough problems as it is without looking shlubby in a major summer blockbuster.
