Ryan Gosling: Get sartorially schooled by cinema's modern-day King of Cool

From showing off his sartorial skills in Gangster Squad and The Big Short, to displaying a mastery of signature styles in The Nice Guys, Blue Valentine and Drive, Ryan Gosling is a bona fide fashionista of film.

But how can Gosling teach the man-on-the-street to become the man-about-town? Here’s how:

Jazzed-up brown suits are a go

On paper a brown suit might not scream style, but in reality one can work. Gosling knows this and used a vintage-inspired silk shirt to give his fit some oomph when he attended the 75th Venice Film Festival in 2018.

Pyjamas for outside? Go on then

Over the course of the past five years, the men’s catwalk collections have been awash with pyjamas you can wear outside. Where do you think they got their inspiration from? We’re hedging our bets that Gosling’s outing in this pyjama-esque shirt may have been one source.

No tie? No problem

Alongside Rami Malek and Troye Sivan, Ryan Gosling has been making a serious case for the air tie in recent years. It’s one of the easiest things to do to give your suit a contemporary update – try it yourself.

Believe in short sleeves

A perennial argument of the fashion world – are short-sleeved shirts cool? When Gosling wears them, of course they are. Follow his lead by opening the collar, tucking in and further rolling those sleeves to make them even shorter.
