It's a wild new era of suiting on the streets of fashion week

There’s something about fashion week season that brings out a new level of flex in gents around the world. Whether it’s inspiration from the looks on the catwalk, or just the sheer fact that you’re surrounded by some of the most stylish people in the world, even the most conservative men advance from a single breasted suit to a double. And we’ve seen that this year more that even in the celebrity landscape.

Fresh from the streets of fashion week and the Toronto Film Festival, tailoring essentials turned wavy with the likes of David Beckham opting for a relaxed lounge suit with out to dinner with wifey Victoria Beckham, while Schwarzenegger Jr, aka Patrick, walked the Savage x Fenty red carpet in a head-to-toe magenta combo.

See them all below.

Jessica Campbell, Online Content Producer
"George Costsanza said it best: “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” You need only look to this ensemble from P. Schwarzenegger to know that yes, yes it is acceptable. The gold pendant necklace and wisps of chest hair are a little ’70s porn star, but I don’t hate it."

Brad Nash, Online Content Producer
"After years of David Beckham standing as the poster boy for Savile Row-cut suits and crisp British tailoring, he finally seems to be embracing a more fashion forward approach, mixing runway-ready tailoring with sneakers in a look that would make more old-fashioned men's style blogs look on in abject horror. Bravo!"

Jake Millar, Deputy Editor
"What's the deal with everyone wearing one colour? Who knows, but I'm all for it. The tie, the shirt, the double-breasted suit. All buttoned up in his own little midnight-blue universe, and then just his luminous British face and hands exposed like some kind of dapper street mime. Great stuff. Remember when he dated Taylor Swift for a hot minute? What a life."

"You can't get a fit better than this - Ansel Elgort's grey combo is the ultimate play on texture and is a serious win for me."

LaKeith Stanfield at the "Uncut Gems"premiere

Charlie Calver, Online Intern
"Lakeith Stanfield is quickly making a name for himself as a man with bold taste and effortless execution. This look is no exception. Pairing a glorified bathrobe with cream shoes is an insane idea, but Stanfield makes it work. As per usual."

Lucas Hedges at the "Honey Boy" premiere

Mike Christensen, Editor
"And just like that, colour matching your suit and hair became a thing. Lucas Hedges may not look happy about it but that’s fine because the matcha-green shirt is hogging the attention here. Extra style points for going double-breasted and top button up. "

Shia LaBeouf at the "Honey Boy" premiere

Amy Campbell, Staff writer
"It's not everyday we see the founding father of scuzzy-chic in the wild sans scuzz, but this rare sighting goes to show Mr LaBeouf can scrub up. The Gucci loafer and sock combo is especially fresh. It juxtaposes quite nicely against the Chopper-style mo he's cultivating. "
