When it comes to unpredictable red carpet behaviour, former Esquire cover star Tom Hardy has previous – back in September he melted internet hearts by taking his dog, Woody, to the premiere of his movie Legend.
This week, at a Bafta screening of The Revenant, the Mad Max star went one further by not bothering to wear a suit, the standard issue uniform for male movie stars signing autographs / posing for selfies since forever.
Instead Hardy opted for a graphic design t-shirt from Rugman – a London-based streetwear designer favoured by rap artists like Maverick Saber and Plan B – jeans, trainers and, er, a sweat band.
Laidback, independent and – let's face it – slightly nuts, its a look that epitomises Hardy's unique appeal as an actor, but from a style point of view, does it actually work?
Here, Esquire's Fashion Director Catherine Hayward gives us her verdict.
