The Suits of Kellan Lutz
Posted: Jun 01 2017
We decided to break down the suits of this dapper gentleman to follow up on a suggestion from female members of staff. We didn’t know who Mister Lutz was, until we were told that the handsome devil is best known for his appearances in the Twilight saga. Frankly we don’t care much for the movies, but we have to admit that Lutz looks like quite the lady killer when wearing a dapper suit. You might get inspired by his style, and maybe decide to add a sharp Tailor On Ten suit to your seductive arsenal, and try to impress the ladies with the Lutz effect.
In our style breakdowns we often pick checkered fabrics. This is because a checkered pattern catches the eye, making for looks that work well for celebrities. Checks can also be used to steal the show at the office or on social outings, especially if worn with simplicity. In the first combination we picked, Mr Lutz shows how subtle detailing in conjunction with a checkered fabric can work magic. The fabric does his job in the foreground, while every other detail is toned down. The pockets are piped, the notch lapel is of an appropriate dimension, and the buttons blend in silently. The complexity of the checks is further highlighted by the plainness of the shirt. Light blue fabric, undone cutaway collar and no placket for the mother of pearl buttons keep things simple.
The second ensemble we picked is a Prince of Wales check in gray and subtle pink. We love the fabric used for this three-piece suit, the heavy wool tending towards tweed looks and feels soft, giving it a snug, cozy vibe. Another detail we particularly enjoy about this look is the waistcoat. Lutz is a tall guy, and he uses the space on his chest to accessorize with six buttons and four pockets. The suit really comes together with the slim notch lapels and the simple matches between wool, tie and shirt. The red dotted tie picks up on the color of the checks pattern, and this detail adds to the overall english country gentlemen vibe of of the attire.
The third look we decided to breakdown is not very impressive, proving that even the handsomest of devils can look poorly in a shabby suit. The gray suit worn by Lutz in the picture is something that he probably dug out of his closet and that had been there since prom. In spite of the decent quality of fabric, the cut of the suit is all wrong. Too stiff, too big, too long. Every possible mistake was made while cutting this suit, but the worst one, key to the destruction of the flow of the garment, is the huge arm hole, sawn too low under the shoulder. Such a low and disproportionate armhole causes every movement of Lutz’s limbs to ruin the whole silhouette of his jacket. Come and see us in store, we will help you looking as dashing as Kellan with our great quality bespoke suits!
