Like spotting a shooting star in the night sky, it is a rare treat to see an actor from HBO’s dynasty series Game of Thrones—a show not necessarily known for its style inspiration—looking exceptionally sharp. And sure, we see Kit Harington & Company getting formal fits off just about every awards season for the past decade. But Thrones has now seen its last Emmys. There will not be a ninth season. And so to actually witness one of these actors well-dressed in the wild means that they found some style of their own volition.
Or, they might be filming something that doesn’t put them in chain mail and dirty-toilet-paper-colored garments. Which was the case with John Bradley, who was spotted in New York City yesterday alongside Jennifer Lopez, his co-star in a new film called Marry Me.
Listen, it’s not at all surprising to see that young Samwell cleans up nicely. He has, in fact, shown he knows his dressin’ before. But it is nice to know that we can get used to seeing him—and his former Thrones co-stars—this way, and no longer in their Winterfell fits.
While a well-fitted navy suit might not earn you a spot next to J.Lo, it can certainly do wonders for your wardrobe. In fact, if it’s not something you’ve already got in your arsenal, there’s no better time to change that than right now. Whether you go wool or cotton, solid or pinstriped, they key to making this a part of your regular rotation is all in the fit. Bradly has nailed that here, with a tailored silhouette that perfectly fits his shoulders—which is the first thing you need to take note of when trying on a new jacket.
If it doesn’t fit you there, it probably never will. Add to that a just-right amount of visible shirt cuff (about half an inch) and a tie that more or less matches the width of your lapels, and you’re on your way to Noticeable Town, U.S.A.
