Get The Look

Spring Style with Michael Fassbender

You can look smart in spring without looking like the man from Del Monte. For some visual advice, take a look at Michael Fassbender.

Fassbender's on the promotion trail for Prometheus, turning up in Paris in this snappy outfit. Wearing a grey Neil Barett suit, a paisley pocket square (someone been reading our latest issue have they?) and, most surprisingly, a granddad collar shirt. Here's our mini-guide on how to achieve this look.

The suit
Firstly, the weight of the suit is essential. A winter suit won't cut it here. Either get a spring number or get rid of the jacket. Any sort of halfway house in this regard will only lead to a fashion disaster (aka you looking like a pillock). This Paul Smith number does the trick (£855, Matches)

The shirt
It has to be good quality. A cheaper granddad collar shirt will likely be without back darting, making you look like you've gone overboard on the liquid lunch. Fassbender's is a tailored one, so it works well with the suit.

A good recommendation is this Ami version (£165, Mr Porter) which is tailored enough to layer under a suit whilst being laid back enough to work on a casual day. It's all about getting the most out of your clothes after all.

The pocket square
Without the paisley pocket square, this outfit would be dull. With it, it's a conversation worthy topic. It doesn't have to be paisley, but it does help if it compliments rather than just matches your outfit. Something like this: (£6, Topman)

In order to hide his Polio from the public, Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in New York via a secret extension of Grand Central Terminal underneath the Waldorf Astoria hotel. His abandoned train car—which is still there today—transported the president and his limousine directly up into the hotel's garage so he could come and go unnoticed.
