The Elba Style

Idris Elba is one of the best-dressed men in the world. There is absolutely no doubt about it. The man from Hackney has been pursuing his dream of making it big on the Silver screen for a long time. He has finally made it happen, whilst also becoming a fashion icon and a trendsetter. Elba’s journey to stardom has been nothing short of spectacular. But what we personally think is more spectacular than his personal development is his faultless sense of style. It has not taken very long for him to carve a niche for himself as a sultan of style. The awe-inspiring part about all this is the ease with which he is able to pull it all off.

Whether he is at an awards function, a talk show or just stepping out of the gym, his impeccable sense of style is alluring. We think this can be attributed to his level of confidence and his demeanour. There is something to take away from the air of glamour for every man who is looking to work on his style. Even when wearing something simple like a polo t-shirt and a pair of black denim jeans with Espadrilles or loafer shoes, he still appears to be the stylish movie star that we are all familiar with. So today we are going to try and unlock the secrets of the Elba style!

Trainers for menMens Bespoke SuitFirst of all, the man works out. He has been in one of the best shapes of his life, despite being in his forties. All of this when combined with his stature, makes his body type ideal for any kind of clothes. Secondly, here we have another man who enjoys sporting classic styles with some contemporary fashion pieces. His simple approach to style and tendency to stick to neutral colours are one of the main reasons why he is able to stay well dressed all the time. Well fitted denim jeans, t-shirts, pullovers, jackets, overcoats, boots, trainers, and last but not least, suits are what make up his style.

If you haven’t noticed it yet, all of these are very simple pieces of men’s clothing! Unlike an eccentric dresser like Johnny Depp for example, the Elba style is made entirely of simple off the shelf items. So clearly it is all about knowing how to use dressing items. Let us take closer look:

•    The Elba Suit: Well fitted shirt and trousers with a suit jacket that fits like a glove are the main ingredients of the Elba suit. This settles once and for all the importance of a great fit, especially when working with bespoke suits. All of this combined with pleasant colours like grey, navy blue, black and graphite to create memorable ensembles that make headlines in all the fashion magazines everywhere in the world.

•    The Elba Casuals: Of course you can’t wear a suit every day of your life. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look sharp. With Elba’s approach to street and hang out attire, your casual style is going to be as sharp as the edge of a Katana sword made in Japan! The best part is, it doesn’t present itself as much of a hassle. Monotone colours, solid coloured tees and neat looking denim jeans and jackets are all that you need to get cracking.
