Everything you need to know from his latest linear win.
At this point Ryan Gosling is an undeniable style force. The man is incapable of a bad fit—with only one exception we can think of which, to his credit, he immediately admitted to. However, most recently the La La Land actor has been on a hot streak of excellent suiting, showing up to red carpets and press tours in a slew of stylish designer suits. Gosling is particularly fond of a three-piece suit (and he certainly wears them better than most) but he's also way into pinstripes; the narrow contrasty kind that we also happen to stand behind right now—synergy!
On Friday, the real-life leading man stepped out in a handsome Gucci pinstripe two-button suit. What sets this pinstripe—and the others we favor—apart from the pinstripes of the past is two-fold. One, the stripes are closer together, which has a a slimming effect (not that Gosling needs it). And two, the stripes are chalky and rough-edged which separates them the ones you'd see on the flashy banker suits of the '80s.
Gosling did good by this his particular suit by pairing it with a simple white dress shirt and black tie. And because he's a pro, he knew exactly how many buttons to button—one.
