Take one of the stars of the hit Netflix show Narcos, Pedro Pascal, who is wearing a navy blue, shawl-collar one-button suit to the series’ premiere yesterday. Everything about the suit says formal, right down to the fine, subtle pattern of the fabric and the slim fit. And while Pascal embraced wearing a crisp white button-up underneath, he ditched wearing a tie, and instead left the top button undone and added a floral-pattern pocket square for a bit of low-key panache.
The result is that he looks relaxed and appropriate, the embodiment of a modern television star, who wants to look good but on his own terms. Again, it’s 2016 and all men should figure out how to make a suit fit into their lives, whether that be with a t-shirt or with sneakers, or anything in between. After all, what are rules for if not to be broken?
