I’m still tired to the bone. Sadly the NYC Adventure post isn’t happening tonight. Trying to keep up with the relentless hype seems to be wearing. Cannot even begin to imagine how the cast is getting through all this. Yet, they have 8 days to go.
The NYC premiere was a clearly a low key affair with no live streaming fans could find. Most news came from our TeamThorin on the scene, tweets from Warner Brothers, and pictures from Getty Images. After four days of steady publicity, the big American premiere was – a bit anemic in comparison with NZ and Japan. It felt a bit embarrassing actually. Sheesh, Big Apple. What happened?
Anyway, I finally got to see a potential new suitor #4, whom I’ve tentatively named James. (Thanks for the help, Twitter!). I say tentative because I’ve not decided whether James is worthy of my affections. Don’t get me wrong; the glen plaid tweed is lovely and the cobalt blue tie really brings out RA’s gorgeous eyes. However, after a diet of superbly fitted suits like George and Fernando (do keep up), this particular English cut was a bit off putting. IMHO, the jacket style places the waist a bit too high to flatter RA’s longer torso and lower natural waist. It doesn’t accentuate his lean form. Not to mention the trousers hint at on-coming male camel toe. Just sayin’.
I was about to include a full portrait of sorta-James but then realized this one is all you need to see. Am I right?
EDIT: I’ve added a full length shot for more research and analysis. Of course. See what I mean? The waistcoast is nice, but the style does not flatter his build. And yes, those trousers are too tight honey. TeamThorin remarked on Twitter that they hugged his rear quite tightly, so I feel vindicated in my observation. What is male camel toe? It’s when tight fabric gets really really friendly with a man’s junk. Should a style like this frame anything like that there? I think not.
EDIT: His stylist says it’s a Michael Bastian flannel from the Winter 2012 collection. Well.
I say now…
