Style Study: Matthew Gray Gubler

As expected, Wes Anderson's former intern is pretty weird. But, like, a jazzy ray of sunshine weird. Matthew Gray Gubler is not only one of my favourite people on earth who I've never met and probably never will, an accomplished actor, director, model and social media hero, but a pretty incredible dresser too.

Let's start this study with MGG in high-publicity, fashion-y situations. On the left, we have a sharp tailored pin-stripe suit and a slightly unbuttoned shirt to ease off the white-collar CEO vibe, rose tinted glasses, balanced with what looks to be a Hawaiian print pocket square. Appropriately earnest, but with hints of character. On the right, he's mingling with the likes of Rodarte at the launch of Jean Stories, having clearly received the denim memo.

Likewise, an exquisite combination of cat-eye glasses, a jacket on loan from a Butlin's redcoat, Beetlejuice's bowtie, a spotted shirt, trademark shaggy hair and stubble. On anybody else, it would look utterly ridiculous - but even with the trashy white leather sofa, he makes it work.

MGG's favourite time of year is Halloween, so he gears up for the autumn/winter all year round. Left: A Fargo-esque Aran knit is a staple piece for cold weather, but are hella woolly so hella heavy and potentially itchy, so Matthew's lightweight beige number is ideal for prime cosiness. Right: teaming a fedora hat (what else for would you wear to keep your head warm in the snow?) with a lot of earthy colours, and what appear to be corduroy trousers (*shudders*).

Your boy loves a printed shirt, and doesn't cop out when it comes to colour either. Roll up those sleeves and undo a few buttons, and you avoid crossing the line into Dickhead Wearing Shit Shirt territory and remain in the safe haven of eccentricity.

To be at one with nature does not mean to compromise on fashion. On the right, there's just so much going on here I don't even know where to start.
