Ryan Gosling at 'Drive' Premiere at 2011 Toronto International Film Festival in Burberry Prorsum

ryan gosling attended the premiere of his new movie "drive" at saturday's toronto international film festival. the actor wore a dark blue donegal wool tweed suit from burberry prorsum pre-fall 2011. i feel this is quite a difficult piece to wear, in pictures the suit looked like it got caught in the rain. and much as i love ryan gosling and burberry prorsum (i honestly do), i don't think it's a good fit. i always feel that burberry prorsum is more suited for the tall lanky types. tara ferry, son of the legendary bryan ferry, looked really good in the same suit in the studio shots above.

hot as ryan is, i think classic cuts rather than runway slim fits suit him better. ryan often wears salvatore ferragamo on the red carpet, which i feel is a very good fit between the parties. and on a side note, i would love to see alexander skarsgard in burberry prorsum for his upcoming film premieres.

close up of the donegal wool suit. golden boy looked a little tired in this pic and i repeat, much as i love ryan gosling, he needs to lay off the eye make up.

the brown version of the suit is also available online from mr porter.


  1. I think Alexander skarsgard is a bit too broad shouldered and athletic for Burberry Prorsum. i always thought the Burberry silhoutte leans towards the thin narrow shoulder men (tall?)

    I still say it: that suit looks good in editorials, not so much in real life.

  2. JA: he doesn't look natural does he?

  3. I think Ryan looked great...

  4. A tailor that I commissioned to make a suit jacket for me also made suits for Ryan Gosling. He said that Ryan Gosling is not very tall (at most 5'10'') and is actually "petite" lol...And he said he likes his suits to be very form fitting (read: tight lol...)

  5. i would kill for this suit! but they are all SOlD OUT! anyone know how I would go about getting this?


what's he wearing?
