Have you ever wondered what brands of sunglasses your favorite male stars are always wearing? They’ve all got impressive eyewear collections, but some brands are dominant. To each their own, right? We had a look through the wardrobes of the most popular male celebrities of the moment, and here’s what we discovered:
1. Brad Pitt loves Tom Ford sunglasses. It doesn’t matter if they’re square shaped or aviators, the actor favors the stylish label for everyday wear, as well as for the red carpet. Sometimes, he even lends them to his partner, Angelina Jolie. Sweet!
Seersucker is a wonderful fabric that doesn’t stick to sweaty skin and actually helps with air circulation in the layers of an ensemble. Naturally, a variety of seersucker-based pieces are coveted during the summertime. But seersucker doesn’t work on every type of clothing, no sir.

INFEASIBLE: Suits made out of seersucker
Seersucker, despite being helpful and stylish, is hardly something to be used in formal wear. That’s why pieces like this executive suit send me up the wall: the naturally occurring wrinkles in the seersucker are casual and fun, but not sophisticated. A suit made out of seersucker is then a contradiction of approach, which maybe fun for a minute on a catwalk, but never appropriate for a board meeting.

Feasible: Seersucker-ed sports coats
On the other hand, seersucker totally works for blazers. Check out this Marc Jacobs, which would be perfect for an outdoor lunch or a evening soiree in the Hamptons. Being both casual and functional in concept, blazers and seersucker are a great pairing.
INFEASIBLE: ‘Ricky’ pants
Marc Jacobs dark brown cotton sateen ‘Ricky’ pants
I didn’t know what the fuck “ricky pants” were prior till like five minutes ago, but if ever pair looks like this, then I can safely say you will never catch me wearing them. Marc Jacobs, what the hell’s going on with the cuffs? What’s that flimsy belt doing there? The horrible buckle? The tight cut of the waist? I ask you, do you think anyone wants to look like a clown?
Feasible: Simple straight leg pants

Simple, coconut gray (Dracon soft spot detected), uniform cut, nothing crazy here. And it’s not terribly expensive. And you won’t look like a buffoon, I promise.
