Kit Harington Proves Every Man Is A Moustache Away From Great Style
What does a minimalist dude wear in this, the era of purple leather pants and self-lacing sneakers? What does a guy who just really wants to wear black put on when tie-dye sweatpants and metallic puffer coats are considered the new norm? It’s simple. He gets himself a perfect haircut. Or some well-groomed scruff. Or even a ’70s moustache, as Kit Harington recently did. That’s because grooming counts toward your style quota, and it counts for a lot. Harington is technically rocking this ’stache for his role in the West End production of Sam Shepard's True West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if he knows full well that it’s helping his style game tremendously. How do we know this? Because he’s used this trick before.
Like in July of 2017, when he made a white band-collar shirt look like a revelation, or, later that year, when his grey sweatshirt, which he wore while taking out the trash, made everyone do a double take. He used this trick in 2016 while wearing a completely unremarkable tan Harrington jacket (no relation), and in 2015 while sporting a standard-issue navy suit on late-night TV. Kit Harington is the rare dude who's stylish because of everything but his clothes. Don't get us wrong; the clothes are perfectly great. But the ’stache plays.
Remember when the fade, instead of being associated with the alt-right, helped average dressers everywhere look as good as Brad Pitt in Fury? Remember when Odell Beckham Jr. and Jared Leto and Lucky Blue Smith and a whole bunch of other grooming radicals inspired guys to bleach the living daylights out of their hair? And they all looked like fashion gods afterward, even if they were just wearing, uh, hoodies? This trick works, friends. It’s always worked, and it will continue to work. Kit Harington knows it, Jay-Z knows it, Tom Hardy knows it, and you probably know it, too – so don’t forget to use it.
