You can imagine how less-than-surprised I was when I learned that, not only does Rob like to rock a little Gucci on the red carpet for his movie premieres, he likes to do the same in his movies.
Personally, I think he should just wear a suit at all times. Not really practical, but who cares?
Rob spent most of the past summer in Toronto, Canada filming the upcoming David Cronenberg-directed thrilling movie “Cosmopolis” — based off the 2003 novel by Don DeLillo. The film takes place over the course of one day, and throughout that one day I can tell you that Rob’s character Eric Packer is ‘dressed to kill’ in a black Gucci “Signoria” suit.
His two-button notch lapel jacket with two front-flap pockets (and a ticket pocket) and fitted trouser suit (with a silk white button-down shirt, black leather belt and black silk tie) goes through a lot with him — steamy hook-ups, an out-of-control rave, an unfortunate hair-cut, and many more antics.
You’ll have to wait until next year to see Rob on the big screen in “Cosmopolis”, but why wait to enjoy some photos of the dashing 25-year-old English actor and ‘the’ suit.
Can he please be the face of the Gucci menswear line now? I’ll even take a few cologne ads at this point.
