George Craig and Diana Vickers were pictured at the #CantHelpMySelfie launch held in French Connection's Regent Street store in London on 15 April 2014. George Craig wore a Burberry Brit quilted panel biker jacket, over a white t-shirt, black denims and matching sneakers.

  

Love George Craig's Burberry leather jacket which fitted him beautifully. Somehow wished that he wore the sneakers that Diana Vickers wore, which also came in a men's model. You can shop the Burberry leather jacket online from Burberry and Mr Porter, and the Giuseppe Zanotti Homme sneakers online from Farfetch.

Andrew Garfield's Burberry trench coat - Berlin Street Style

Andrew Garfield was pictured at the Sony Center on 15 April 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The actor is currently in Germany promoting his new film 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro'. Andrew Garfield wore a classic Burberry trench coat, over a brown / copper coloured suit, white shirt and brown lace-ups.

It is a little "Inspector Garfield is here to examine the crime scene", but you have to agree with me that was a very good look. Love the dark brown hue of the suit, and the cropped trouser length was so on point. The stone / honey coloured trench coat complimented the suit so well, and it kind of pulled the whole look together. The buttoned up white shirt and well polished shoes were the icing on the cake.

Andrew Garfield's Burberry trench coat is such a classic and iconic piece which can be worn across the ages, well worth the investment. He wore the coat over a suit with updated proportions to create a very modern stylish look. Originally created to protect officers from wind and rain, the Burberry trench coat has evolved over 100 years to become an icon. 

Interesting tidbits: the coat was named after the trenches where military personnel were stationed. The coat began as the Burberry Tielocken, patented by Thomas Burberry in 1912. Over the years, the coat was developed to serve the needs of officers in the early 20th century. The design grew in popularity since, and was worn by royalty, film stars and artists all over the world.

At the heart of the Burberry trench coat story is the tightly woven cloth that sets it apart from all others. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, the fabric is called gabardine. Gabardine was made from yarn woven in a compact twill construction with over 100 interlaced threads per centimetre. The microscopic open spaces in the weave allowed ventilation, while the compact structure prevented rain from permeating the fabric. The cloth is triple proofed, creating a lightweight, highly weatherproof and breathable garment. Gabardine is still woven at the Burberry mill in England, alongside new, modern finishing processes.

Dane DeHaan attended 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro' Rome Premiere at The Space Moderno Cinema on 14 April 2014 in Rome, Italy. Dane DeHaan wore a light brown / khaki coloured two button suit, over a floral print shirt from Prada Spring Summer 2014. Two tone leather lace-ups and messy hair completed his look for the Rome Premiere.

Love the buttoned up floral shirt, but somehow think that the suit was not too fitted. The sleeves looked a little long, and the trousers could have gone an inch up. I don't really like both buttons on the suit to be done up, but the proportions would be off if just the top button was done up.

Interestingly, Dane DeHaan also fronted the campaign for Prada Spring Summer 2014. Love the above artfully messy hairstyle, which Dane DeHaan should have gone for at the premiere.

Ansel Elgort in Saint Laurent - 2014 MTV Movie Awards

Ansel Elgort attended the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on 13 April 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The American actor wore a black tuxedo jacket with black satin lapel from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. He wore the jacket over a black silk crepe shirt, matching wool gabardine trousers, grey silk tie and black Duckies boots, all from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

The tuxedo jacket featured subtle tonal patterned effect which comes to life under brighter lighting. A good look on the young American actor, and the buckle detailed boots added a nice finishing touch. I would be tempted to drop the grey tie, but it was a good look nonetheless.
