Bruce Pask: I would love to see Jeff Bridges in a high-styling classic-cut double-breasted tuxedo by Ralph Lauren, from his Purple label collection. He is the perfect person to sport this very dashing and dramatic look. He’s a rather large guy and I think this would be a great shape for him: the strong shoulders of the suit will be very flattering. Classic white tuxedo shirt and a bow tie in black satin to match the lapels and trouser stripe. White satin pocket square. It would be stunning.
Brad Goreski: I would like to see him trimming his beard and hair and I’d go classic, Armani for him. Something really well fitted. Maybe even something old Hollywood with the hair.
Madeline Weeks: For the cover of GQ we put him in a Louis Vuitton suit and he looked smashing, so I would go back to Louis Vuitton. They have some beautiful 1-button or 2-button tuxes that really work for him, really fit his shoulders. Slim, glamorous, a notch lapel or I could even see him in a peak lapel with a classic white shirt and bow tie.
Ilaria Urbinati: I’d love to see him in a Fendi tux. All the men in the Italian film I Am Love (which was nom’d for Best Picture Globe and Best Costumes Oscar) were dressed in killer Fendi suits and they looked so old school and elegant. Bow tie for sure. Real men wear bow ties. Also I would give him a cut and shave—more Last Picture Show, less Lebowski. He’s got such a wonderful smile, I’d love to see his face again.
Ellen Mirojnick: Tux: Classic, single button grosgrain faced peaked lapel. Shirt: Crisp white classic, finely pleated bib front, worn with vintage studs. French cuffs w/ vintage cuff links. Neck: Classic bow tie. Shoe: Simple black lace-up.
