Although the ladies stole most of the fashion focus at Sunday night's SAG Awards (and understandably so), there was at least one sartorial standout on the guys' side that merits mention: Justin Timberlake, who arrived at the Shrine Auditorium impeccably turned out in Tom Ford.
The head-to-toe TF ensemble consisted of a notch-lapel silk/linen hopsack suit (a slim-cut silhouette called the O'Connor) in a black, brown and gray check pattern, paired with a pastel brown gingham shirt, gray knit tie -- a glint of gold collar bar holding the knot firmly in place -- and a pair of black leather loafers. The finishing touch was a flourish of brown-and-white silk pocket square peeking from the left breast pocket.
Timberlake's been on our best-dressed radar for a few years now, but he's taken things up a couple of serious notches as of late -- and those of us who cover fashion for a living aren't the only ones who've noticed. (A colleague on The Times' copy desk alerted us about Timberlake's ramped-up style quotient after working on a recent Pop & Hiss post about the video accompanying JT's new single, "Suit & Tie.")
The video (which isn't embedded in this post since it contains cuss words, can be watched here) is full of so much high fashion it might as well be a luxury look book; at one point Timberlake flashes the label of a Tom Ford necktie, at another point Jay-Z (featured on the track) manages to name-check both Ford and designer Alexander Wang.
