Steal his style: Idris Elba is the modern day gentleman of our time
Idris Elba is a man of many talents; he is an actor, a producer, a musician, and even a DJ. In recent years, he has also been known to be a style icon, whether on the red carpet or simply strolling along the street. He was also named as one of GQ magazine’s 50 best-dressed British men while in 2018, he snatched the People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ award. Here are some of his best fits, whether keeping it casual or classy.
During his recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, Elba had the pleasure to be dressed by Malaysia's very own Wardrobe Tailoring with a bespoke suit.
Playing his titular character John Luther in the TV series, Elba is constantly featured with the signature grey trench coat, which provides the final touch to several layers of monotonous hues.
Tuxedos are the epitome of class and panache but what Elba does here is take it one step further with an undone bowtie as well as the top button, giving the tux a dishevelled look with a touch of grunge thrown in.
A two-piece suit can do you no wrong and Elba pulls it off effortlessly, paired with a skinny black tie to match.
Sometimes a casual plaid suit matched with striking trousers is the way to go, especially when the core colour remains the same.
