Icon of the Month – Shia Laboeuf

Never far from controversy, the volatile but hugely talented Hollywood actor was in the papers again this month – accused (again) of plagiarism. Regardless of his bizarre antics, no one can deny that Shia LaBeouf has great style. Indeed, this is not his first appearance in The Stitch (he appeared as a relative unknown next to Michael Douglas in Issue 2, when we covered the Wall Street sequel). For a man with a wild reputation, his suit choices are actually quite reserved. LaBoeuf tends to favour a well cut, 2 button business suit in grey or blue, paired with a club tie – regardless of whether it’s on the red carpet… or at one of his many court appearances!

Below is a selection of our favourite suits from his clearly abundant collection!

Simple Blue worsted two piece – but with a couple of subtle twists: white buttons and white stitching on the boutonnière.

The statement suit – bronze on charcoal. 2 button but cut very high, with a narrow notch on the lapel. Very unusual.

With the tonal blues and heavy beard, he’s morphing into Tom Hardy!

Once again LeBeouf favours a smart, business-like suit – a navy two-piece and striped tie.

This is a unique cloth/colour combination that works well – in part because the fit is so good.
