Channing Tatum Is A Nice Guy. But Even Nice Guys Can't Pull Off Triple Denim Tailoring

Sorry, Chan

Channing Tatum: he seems like a good guy. One of those bros who'll get the Heinekens in and would help you move a sofa if you asked him nicely. He'd probably offer an elderly person his seat on the train, even after they've said they're fine. Channing knows that they'd like the seat really - they're just don't want to make a fuss - but he's a kind man and really it's no bother, so he gives them the seat.

Everyone feels good.

But while these are all fine and admirable traits for a Channing to possess, we're afraid that we must take umbrage with what he's recently been spotted wearing to promote Kingsman: The Golden Circle, in the name of fairness and appropriate use of denim.

And so here it is.

What the f**k, Channing?

This is an outfit that is so strange; so puzzling; so Out There, that we're going to have to make a list of all time tested style rules it breaks.

1. Do not wear denim formal trousers.

2. Do not wear a matching denim waistcoat.

3. Do not wear a chambray shirt underneath the waistcoat.

4. Do not then roll the sleeves up on the chambray shirt. (Actually there's no way to salvage the look at this stage, so it doesn't really matter how you wear the shirt.)

Unless his desired aesthetic was 'Cowboy Mixologist', we're not really sure what Channing was going for with this outfit. Ok, the new rules of denim allow plenty of flexibility, but this is... this is something else.

Fit wise, everything's okay, we suppose (just burn the waistcoat). But what we can't wrap our heads around is the decision to go so all-out on denim; a fabric that so rarely works well when it comes to tailoring.

There's a reason the last time it was attempted was in 2001, and the guy ended up looking like this.

Never forget

Basically, is denim or tailoring. Pick one.

And finally, leave the waistcoat for a three-piece suit.

One that isn't made of denim.
