Jordan Peele’s very big, very stylish years

Over the last half decade we have seen Jordan Peele go from knee-jerk sketch comedy to genre-bending filmmaking. Along the way, especially over the last six months, another transformation happened: Peele has quietly transformed himself into one of the sharpest-dressed guys in Hollywood—and he’s done it all while still looking like himself.

Earlier in his career, you could find Peele on the red carpet in fairly straightforward attire: usually in black suits with skinny black ties, or a black tux with a black bow tie when the occasion called for it. His more casual look traditionally included a flannel worn over a graphic tee or a denim jacket over a plaid button-up. It was laid-back everyday style, down to his simple black frames. Today, his casual looks are an elevated version of what he might have worn five years ago. He hasn’t been without his graphic tee collection – he’s just wearing them more minimalist shirts and pants. He will pair a statement jacket with a plain white t-shirt and simple black trousers, eg this from the suppliers of downtown cool at Bode. And what about his more formal look, you might ask? Oh, Peele delivers.

Just last weekhe showed up to an event in Los Angeles wearing a punched wide velvet jacket suit from Todd Snyder, the double-breasted blazer and relaxed-fit trousers done in an extreme autumnal brown. For the premiere of his latest film, he donned an eye-catching purple suit, a custom-made number by Bode. Peele seems to bounce between these two points throughout the year: more toned-down tailoring like this merlot-shaded suitto the lighter shades like this sky blue look. Through it all, his graying hair and beard have grown shorter and longer, but always look perfect. (The colors he wears always seem to complement the silver.) His eyewear choices are bolder than his previous eyewear, including heavy-duty frames from brands like Andy Wolf and Garrett Leight.
