Over the past half decade, we have seen Jordan Peele went from sketch comedy to twisty filmmaking. Along the way, especially over the past six months, another transformation has occurred: Peele has quietly transformed into one of the most well-dressed men in Hollywood — and he’s done it all while still look like yourself.
Earlier in his career, you could see Peele on the red carpet in a fairly simple outfit: usually in a black suit with a slim black tie, or a black tux with a black tie when the occasion arises. His more casual look has traditionally consisted of a felt shirt worn over a patterned t-shirt or denim jacket over a plaid shirt. It’s everyone’s laid-back style, down to his simple black frames. Today, his casual look is an upgraded version of what he could have worn 5 years ago. He hasn’t shied away from his collection of patterned t-shirts—he just wears them with more things. minimalist shirt and pants. He will pair a striking jacket with a plain white t-shirt and simple black pants, such as this from the vendors of downtown cool in Bode. And what about his more formal look, you might ask? Oh, Peele delivers.
Only last weekhe appeared at an event in Los Angeles wearing a loose, perforated corduroy garment from Todd Snyder, a comfortable double-breasted blazer and trousers are finished in a bold fall brown. For the premiere of his latest film, he wore an eye-catching purple suit, a custom-made figure from Bode. Peele seems to oscillate between these two times throughout the year: neater tailoring like this merlot color suitto brighter colors like this blue look. Throughout it all, his gray hair and beard grew shorter and shorter but always looked perfectly groomed. (The color he wears always seems to complement the silver.) His eyewear choices are bolder than those of his glasses last year, including perforated frames from brands like Andy Wolf and Garrett Leight.
