George Clooney, 60 and 6 style lessons

George Clooney undoubtedly belongs to that fortunate category of men who improve with age. And, considering that next May 6 he crosses the important milestone of 60 years, the upgrade is very considerable. The Hollywood actor with the sly smile, over time has definitely refined both his charm and his attitude to elegance. Features that, at the beginning of his career, were not so blatantly evident. Here is a comparison between the George of 1985, hypertrophic hair and questionable shirt, with that of today, grizzled and charming. And we challenge anyone not to fully agree with us.

George Clooney, 60 and 6 style lessonsFrom ER ‘s affable Doctor Ross smock to Batman’s suit, from Ocean Eleven’s gentleman thief sartorial suits to Monuments Men military uniform , the American star on set wore just about any type of costume. In life, on the other hand, inside and outside the red carpets, it is basically a habit that shows off a few pieces and a few colors, with a predilection for sobriety and an established idiosyncrasy towards the tie. Since 6 seems like a cathartic number for this year (60 years on May 6, ed ), we decided to celebrate George Clooney with 6 style tips inspired by him. With an extra final bonus.

1 – The one-color that exudes and immediately makes it elegant

Even if the physique holds up, with the passing of the years a bit of embossing is to be taken into account, and George knows it well. For this reason, his outfits are always played in harmony around a few dark shades, even better if in monochrome. Even the cuts are crucial, always brushed and spot on, never too tight, but not too abundant. this is why one of his favorite designers, with whom he has built a special relationship of esteem and friendship over the years, is undoubtedly Giorgio Armani, the undisputed master of tailoring suits.

2 – Casual doesn’t mean scruffy

George has admitted in several interviews that if he could he would always dress in jeans and a T-shirt, willingly leaving the standard tuxedo in the closet even in the most formal situations. A classic American male, who much prefers casual to black tie. But this does not mean turning towards neglect, on the contrary. As always, the difference is made by cuts and shades: the five-pockets in denim are straight, without frills or tears, with a light and uniform wash, while the polo shirt replaces the shirt and is dyed blue, gray and the like.

3 – Neutral colors are the wild card that solves any problem

A trick he from his other great friend and setmate, Brad Pitt, is to wear neutral and warm colors, such as beige, sand and taupe. They illuminate the face, go easily with everything without having to worry too much and therefore give immediate security. Impossible to go wrong!

4 – Add a gritty touch with the leather jacket

As a passionate centaur George has an entire collection of nails and leather jackets, capable of giving a rock look even to the most sober looks. The black perfecto is an indispensable ally in his spare time, when he travels and, above all, when he runs around Los Angeles or on the roads that run along Lake Como on his beloved Harley-Davidson.

5 – Tie? No thanks. What else?

The American actor is allergic to the tie, it is a fact. Even on the most famous red carpets he has often deliberately forgotten to wear it, making the label experts twist. If you really have to get dressed up, you can rely on the most eccentric bow tie.

6 – The neo retro glasses for a perfect star

With a big and regular face, George would look good with any frame, but as a sailor he is, in the end he always chooses classic and timeless models. Like aviators with teardrop lenses or wayfarers, more squared and smoky. A philosophy to be copied.

Bonus track: Amal

It is said that behind a great man there is always a great woman. Since George met Amal, the sophisticated lawyer he married in 2014 and who gave him twins, his style as well as his smile have increased exponentially. Passionate about fashion, with an impeccable and very personal taste, Ms. Clooney nonchalantly ranges between very different brands such as Giambattista Valli, Versace, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, she that she has her hand in the increasingly refined looks of her husband?
