At the 91st Annual Academy Awards, the men used to wear almost identical black tuxes. Sure, the event is black tie, so that worked, but now men are showcasing more daring looks, which we absolutely love. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a classic black tuxedo, but here are our picks for the Oscars best dressed men 2019.

Henry Golding

The British-Malaysian actor, model, and television host, Henry Golding, who is best known for his roles as Nick Young in Crazy Rich Asians and Sean Townsend in A Simple Favor both in 2018. Since those two films this actor has been high profile.

To the Oscars he wore Ralph Lauren Purple Label. His tux has exquisite collar detailing with the single breasted jacket mostly made of velvet with contrasting accents. His white button up tuxedo shirt has square button-cover studs. The single-breasted waistcoat in white with white tie and a pocket watch chain also adds extra pzazz and detailing. He wears contrasting black trousers and shiny black shoes. He could have stepped right out of a Fitzgerald novel!

Michael B Jordan

Velvet is in and this time in a deep blue Tom Ford number. Paired with slim black trousers, shiny leather shoes. Michael B Jordan opted for classic black studs on his tuxedo shirt, a white tie, and to add interesting pins to his pointed lapels.

Jordan is an American actor best known for his roles in Friday Night Lights, Fantastic Four, Black Panther, and All My Children. He certainly looked amazing at the Oscars!

Jason Momoa

Want to throw all traditional colour out the window? Jason Momoa will show you how. Another velvet number—velvet is definitely a trend this year—but this time in a pink Fendi design. Instead of a traditional bow-tie look Momoa opted to go tie-less and add necklaces and chains. Instead of accessorising with a watch, Momoa opted for a pink scrunchie (bold move). His single-breasted jacket has contrasting round lapels. The trousers are slightly higher waisted with an expressive, contrasting ribbon detail down the leg.

To the Oscars he wore a red velvet tuxedo jacket with contrasting grey pointed lapels. His lapels and waistcoat matched perfectly. He wore black tuxedo trousers, a white button-up shirt with buttons hidden, and a black bow tie. His tux is Brunello Cucinelli with Montblanc cufflinks.

John Mulaney

American stand-up comedian, John Mulaney, who is known as a writer for Saturday Night Live and for his stand-up specials The Top Part, New in Town, The Comeback Kid, and Kid Gorgeous wore a Pal Zileri tuxedo to the Oscars.

Although his black leather rounded shoes were a little on the plain side, and a little baffling because he seems to have some white socks peeking through, his tuxedo jacket in a lovely colour palette of muted purples and greens is stylish. He wore a classic white tuxedo shirt and black bow tie. Would you wear this more daring look?
