Take style from a star… Tom Hardy has become very popular recently in the film business, from his lead role in the new Batman Dark Knight Rises and other successful films such as This Means War, Inception, Bronson, Rock and Rolla, Star Trek and his most recent role in the film Lawless.
Hardy is known for being a brilliant British actor and screenwriter, but he has also become a star of style and an influential style icon for young men. With a great sense of style that is portrayed from when he attends premier events to his casual everyday look. He often wears sleek, sharp cut, tailored suits for star studded events, always looking calm and confident on the red carpet, reinforcing the classic British heritage style. His day to day wardrobe is a more off duty, casual look which usually consists of comfortable designer denim, crew neck tees and plaid shirts.
He stay’s true to his British heritage throughout his fashion choices, by representing brands like Burberry and Mr.Hare. Showcasing himself as a true style icon, donning a mix of dark suits, tailored overcoats, plush velvets and soft shearlings.
So let’s take a look at Hardy’s homage to fashion as a cinematic fashion hero, as he cleverly uses his physique and clothing to make an impact plus a statement and insight to his character in each role. He has a vast range of distinct looks, which he pulls off with ease but not everyone can be so lucky!
In Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy he represents his character of Tarr the maverick agent with the 70’s look. With his unkempt and messy style of shaggy blonde hair, open top shirts, cords and sheepskin jacket.
When he becomes Bane in the new Batman, this bold and bulky character shows vulnerability by wearing a mask but also has to be impressive as an imposing figure to Batman. This is portrayed with a raw, bold and black look with the mask, bald head, combat gear, winter jacket and chunky boots.
Then for his role in This Means War, it was time to suit up! Both male main characters in this film – Tom Hardy and Chris Pine were impeccably dressed throughout the film. Sophisticated, sharp but sultry suits were on the agenda to coincide with the CIA agent character. Hardy’s suits in this film were mainly Paul Smith – once again staying true to his British roots! The cut fit him perfectly with the slim leg and narrow lapel.
