Along with Pratt, Evans and Hemsworth, Chris Pine makes up one of the four pillars of slightly beige (ecru?) handsome Chrises who are dominating Hollywood right now.
If, like most people, you have some difficulty in telling their chiseled, corn-fed appearances apart, then here's a handy tip for picking out Pine in a lineup: he's always well dressed, as demonstrated by two very stylish outings this week (both by Ralph Lauren Purple Label).
Let's have a little dig into the details, shall we.
Opting for a very Italian-looking (say Sprezzatura out loud, it sounds pretty nice) wide-lapeled linen suit in a soft stone blue, Pine's first outfit shows why you shouldn't be afraid of pairing a t-shirt with your tailoring this summer.
Creating a nice bit of contrast against the paler shade of the suit, Pine's tucked-in navy Tee also works well with the slightly higher waistband; while the break of his trousers show just the right amount of warm weather mankle, with penny loafers making a solid alternative to white trainers when it comes to choosing what shoes to wear with a suit this time of year.
A fully tonal take with a few risky factors thrown in, Pine's second get-up is one of those that is made or broken by the fit, which is - thankfully - very good here indeed.
Another Italian-esque (Sprezzzzzzzzatura) suit, notice the subtle cuff of the trouser that is just the right length; while the change in loafers, along with the double-breasted cut, creates a slightly more formal overall aesthetic than the prior t-shirt outfit.
Opting for linen as a fabric again, here Pine proves that there are ways of dressing up a summer suit without sweating it out in heavy navy or charcoal wool flannel. Instead, look at fabrics like seer sucker, linen and lighter cuts of wool that are high quality and breathable.
Good stuff. Good, fashionable stuff.
