Red Carpet Review: Fat is the New Skinny For Dudes


Trends in menswear on the red carpet tend to be subtle. But I did notice a preference for ties with girth at the Golden Globes last night. Hollywood heavyweights like Steven Spielberg and Christian Bale wore beefier versions, as did Jonah Hill, and president Bill Clinton. Sure, there were some fellas like Richard Gere and Kevin Costner who kept the skinny tie alive, so I asked Twitter followers which they preferred. Skinny led the race. Personally, I like the switch up—a full Windsor knot on a wider tie with a tux jacket looks sharp and manly. (I just can’t imagine Bill Clinton in a skinny tie.) We’ll see if the trend continues as award season goes on…Feel free to join the debate and leave your comment below.
