Mr Jordan Clarkson

It would be easy to file Mr Jordan Clarkson’s look here under “this was just thrown together” – and, really, who could blame him for opting for something effortless when he’s about to compete in the Playoffs. The loose, louche tailored trousers. The lightweight patchwork jacket. Even the crocheted tote bag – seemingly pilfered from his grandmother’s wardrobe, but actually sourced from Italian brand La Milanesa – all scream comfortable. Cosy even. That nonchalance is all part of the illusion. For once you clock that he’s had the foresight to match his T-shirt, Pantone-perfectly, to his Dunks, well then you realise you’re dealing with a sort of sartorial wizardry on an a whole different level.

Mr Rami Malek

Did you think black is not a summer colour? Think again. Mr Rami Malek’s appearance at the Roland Garros in Paris earlier this month shows that an all-black moment is very much the moment. The Bohemian Rhapsody actor took a page out of the French book and embraced his inner sophisticated eboy, pairing a simple long-sleeve with black chinos, lace-up boots, aviator sunglasses and a Pasha de Cartier on his wrist to watch the women single’s quarter-final – looking ever so chic on the Parisian bleachers.

Mr Jordan Anderson

As the spoils of Mr Damien Hirst’s Treasures From The Wreck Of The Unbelievable shore up in Rome, here is a chance to catch the grown-up enfant terrible of British art’s clutch of erroneous sunken artefacts. But that’s not all there is to see. Renewed cultural pursuits have brought with them the return of another of our favourite activities: people watching. And who do we spy but Milan-based fashion journalist Mr Jordan Anderson. We get it, this show is sponsored by Prada. So, coming fully decked in the brand’s output, itself tapping into imagined trappings of test cricket, the Boy Scout movement and the British Raj, makes perfect sense. But that doesn’t stop us from wanting to take this outfit – once Anderson is done with it, of course – mounting it in a case, preserving it in formaldehyde and putting it on permanent display.

Mr Joshua Jackson

We can’t blame a man for not being quite ready to give up relaxed-fitting clothes just yet and actor Mr Joshua Jackson perfectly balances on the line between smart enough and not too casual at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of his new TV series. He may be playing a murderous neurosurgeon in Dr Death, but his Gucci ensemble is a lesson in bringing contrasting separates to life. The tailored mint-green blazer and boxy khaki cropped trousers should not work on paper, but Jackson pulls it off by keeping both pieces very simple, while his sorbet-yellow 1970s-style sneakers add a complementary finishing touch.

A$AP Rocky

Out promoting his new documentary Stockholm Syndrome (it’s about that time he went to Swedish prison), A$AP Rocky is pictured here in an insanely sharp double-breasted CELINE HOMME suit, looking like CEO of the world. Still, we all know we’re not just here to talk about the tailoring on show – the real head turner: those pearls. While we might still think of pearls as a stuffy throwback to waspy grandmothers, Rocky’s been busy giving them a rebrand. WA$P, if you will, though don’t ask us what that would stand for. In any case, the rapper’s been rocking strings of pearls (and now pearl rings) for the past couple of years, and, we have to say, he wears them well. And with a suit like this? The man can do no wrong.

Mr David Beckham

How many times have you recoiled at the instruction “smart casual”? Well, shrink no more, because Mr David Robert Joseph Beckham is here to show you the way. Rather than aim for some sliver-thin Venn-diagram middle ground between the two, simply half-and-half it. To wit: from the waist down this is all business; a loosely-cut pair of blue pin-stripe suit trousers, matched with a tightly-laced pair of brown brogues. But upstairs, New York’s summer weather calls for nothing more substantial than a polo shirt. It’s not just any polo either – a less-is-more tailored number from Jermyn St’s Benson & Clegg, in merino wool without buttons, pocket or logo. It doesn’t hurt that, at 46, Beckham still has the physique of a 30-year-old to tailor it around. We’re also looking at a masterclass in accessories: the unfussy belt matches the shoes, and the shades (his own brand, we think), Goyard wallet and Tudor Black Bay dive watch provide just enough glitz to counter the simplicity of his outfit.

Mr Liu Haoran

If Mr Liu Haoran wasn’t one of China’s most famous actors, you might be forgiven for thinking he was just a regular youth who has hastily raided his grandfather’s wardrobe to find a suit, such is the shade and oversized fit of his formalwear. But Liu, who also goes by the moniker Turbo Liu, is not a regular guy who has stolen clothing from a deceased relative, he is an extremely stylish thespian who understands the merits of unstructured jackets, wide-leg trousers and the colour brown.
