20130118-165107.jpg

The always stylish Zac Efron is today’s featured Tailored Spotlight. There’s no denying the fact that Zac is quite familiar with how to put together a great outfit. His unorthodox style is what sets him apart in tailored fashion. Shawl lapel blazer, fitted waistcoat (vest), dark denim jeans, striped pocket square and a perfect tie on a club collar dress shirt. Layout is important, and Zac definitely got that message! TTG

20121116-115441.jpg

The Twilight Saga’s Jacob vs. Edward face-off continues and this time it’s in the form of fine tailoring, but before either of them saw red on the big screen they took the time to strut down the red carpet for the premiere of Breaking Dawn- Part 2. Robert Pattinson who plays Edward, is seen in a emerald green houndstooth Gucci suit paired with Bally leather lace-up dress shoes. Pattinson says to have dreamt of himself wearing a green suit, and when he woke, decided to get in touch with Gucci to personally create one for him (lucky guy)! Taylor Lautner who plays the role of Jacob, was seen in a grey ZZegna suit paired with Maison Martin Margiela shoes. Both look pretty sharp but which is your favorite?
