The promotional carousel is quite the spectacle. Our eyes, given yet another coating of iPhone-friendly superglue, feast upon Timothée Chalamet in silky mechanic overalls and Darren Criss in Liberace power suits and Joaquin Phoenix in a very Joaquin Phoenix tux. But in a place beyond the nines you'll find a sea of solid eights: consistent, classic and not show-offs in the slightest. John Krasinski is a king of this quiet place (volume two).
Prior to an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the 40-year-old pushed his latest fingers-on-lips family horror while pushing his own profile as a Very Stylish Man. The suit was classic and wearable and ticked a number of boxes along the spectrum of menswear. It was tan, as opposed to a forgettable shade of grey or navy, and in a razor-sharp fit that celebrity suits too often miss. What's more, it's the details that lift Krasinski's look: a respectable watch chiming with sensible lace-ups offering a template for 2020's wedding season.
That's the good bit. While this isn't a glittery two-piece or a tux with a silk train to rival a minor royal, it is concrete, and it is replicable. We can all indulge in this. And no, we don't require the confidence or the body type of a Hollywood heart-melter.
This isn't Krasinski's first rodeo either. The day before, there was another episode of really good menswear in the form of a blue suede trucker jacket, and tonal accompaniments. Matching your shades won't break the internet, but it will unleash a reservoir of compliments.
And while your gaze may have missed Krasinski in the past, know that such a wardrobe isn't built to grab attention. It's built to look good. Because sometimes being quiet is the best way to get noticed.
