Somewhere along the line, Justin Theroux got branded as a douche. Maybe it’s because he always plays ones in movies. Maybe it’s the leather jackets and abundance of tribal tattoos. Or—maybe it’s because we’re all jealous that, at 45, he still sports a killer six-pack, which is likely one of the reasons he was able to land the ultimate 1990s dream girl and make her his wife. It probably wouldn’t hurt to start taking a few style cues from him.
See? We told you Justin could look polished as hell. Here he’s wearing a regular suit you could wear to the office or a friend’s wedding. No hideous back tattoos in sight, and the only accessory is his omnipresent gold signet ring. We’ll let that slide. (Napoli Gray Suit: $399, Suit Supply; Hugo Boss Button-Down Shirt: $165, Mr. Porter; Black Tie: $19, The Tie Bar; Victory Ring: $230, George Frost; Citizen Eco-Drive Watch: $432, Macy's)
This outfit, of course, seems more like the Theroux we know and love (and roll our eyes at)—the multiple pieces of jewelry, the Chelsea boots, the Aviators—but you have to admit he looks slick as hell, especially in that killer overcoat. Get one. (Stop Biting T-Shirt: $32, Extra Butter; Tomorrowland Wool Overcoat: $750, Mr. Porter; Meteorite Necklace: $730, David Yurman; Lou Slim-Fit Jeans: $175, Buck Mason; Classic Aviators: $150, Ray-Ban; Suede Chelsea Boots: $50, H&M; Gold Signet Ring: $495, Sarraf)
If you want to look a little dressed up without looking like a Wall Street bro, take a look at this ensemble. A good blazer and good shoes paired with dark jeans and a black polo can get you through a semi-formal event, and, when you inevitably sneak out to go to a dive bar afterwards, you can just ditch the blazer and instantly look cool and casual. (Slim-Fit Blazer: $70, H&M; Cheap Monday Gray Skinny Jeans: $75, Urban Outfitters; Sunspel Black Polo Shirt: $140, Mr. Porter; Black Dress Belt: $150, Tanner Goods; Church’s Leather Chelsea Boots: $650, Mr. Porter)
A rare photo of Justin not wearing all black—he looks hipster-y and casual but still put together. Why? Because the casual clothes he’s wearing are all fitted. You can wear a t-shirt you bought for $7 and look great in it, but only if it fits right. The stretched out shirts you bought in size XL back in college? Throw 'em out. Please. (Flannel Shirt: $30, Uniqlo; Double Wrap Bracelet: $75, Caputo & Co.; Go-To Tee: $54, Public Rec; Lou Slim-Fit Jeans: $175, Buck Mason; Navy Vibram Sole Camp Boot: $348, Oakstreet Bootmakers; Gold Watch: $115, MVMT)
The sweatshirt he’s wearing around his waist is a little too 1990s grunge scene for us, but everything else about this outfit is on point. It proves that a scarf can be worn with a vintage leather jacket, which is important for dudes who still want to look cool but are old enough to know that freezing your ass off during the winter is not badass; it’s just stupid. (Leather MA-1 Flight Jacket: $365, Alpha Industries; Mr. Bar Ring: $42, ASOS; Black Cashmere Scarf: $148, Everlane; Cheap Monday Gray Skinny Jeans: $75, Urban Outfitters; Grizzly Boots: $425, Quoddy; Classic Aviators: $150, Ray-Ban)
