Emmys 2014: Ty Burrell, Bryan Cranston among the best-dressed men at the 2014 Emmys

Ty Burrell, Bryan Cranston win style points at the Emmys

For the most part the men on the Emmys red carpet played it safe on Monday – and that’s a good thing. Among the sartorial standouts on the guy’s side? Ty Burrell, who won supporting actor in a comedy series, was also a winner in a custom tuxedo (a collaboration between the actor, stylist Ilaria Urbinati and fashion designer Todd Snyder) in a shade of “dusk” blue that split the difference between navy blue and black.

Other sartorial standouts included Bryan Cranston in a Ralph Lauren Black Label traditional notch lapel tuxedo, accessorized with a crisply folded pocket square and rakish mustache. What really made him stand out? The way the tux fit him absolutely perfectly. (Other nominees – and any man thinking of donning a tux – should take note.)

Other honorable mentions in the best-dressed boys bunch: “Game of Thrones” actor Kit Harington, who accessorized his man bun with an Emporio Armani black one-button, peak lapel tuxedo; and Matt Bomer in a black satin shawl collar tuxedo and Jon Hamm, both in Tom  Ford.  

Matthew McConaughey, who has looked more than alright, alright, alright at past awards shows, was a rare miss in his three-piece Dolce & Gabbana ensemble of a blue tuxedo jacket and blue vest, black dress shirt, black bow tie and two-tone peak lapel that was black on the bottom and blue above the peaks. At least he was a miss in comparison to his tux-clad Emmy brethren -- and we’re grading on a curve, right?  (Although he gets points for kind-of/sort-of matching with Woody Harrelson – they looked like two best friends who shopped together before going to the prom stag.)

And, although we’d always err on the side of overdressing instead of under-dressing, Kevin Spacey’s Ralph Lauren Purple Label black tuxedo tailcoat with a white pique vest, white shirt, white formal shirt and white pique bow tie was possibly a wee bit too formal.
