Best Dressed Men at the BAFTA Television Awards 2023 - A Hand Tailored Suit

Best Dressed Men at the BAFTA Television Awards 2023

The British Academy Television Awards was held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on the 14th of May, 2023, to recognise excellence in British television in 2022. It was broadcast on BBC One and hosted by comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan. Celebrities attended in droves and strutted the red carpet to show off their sartorial style. This year, the male attendees kept their clothes classic and elegant. Let's take a look at some of the outfits that caught our attention. 

Cillian Murphy

Irish actor Cillian Murphy was nominated for the Best Actor Award for his notable role as Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinders. He graced the red carpet in a monochromatic look of a black single-breasted slim-fitting suit, black shirt, and black tie. He kept the formal look more casual and relaxed by wearing his shirt unbuttoned at the collar and the tie partially undone. Cillian finished the look with pointy-toed low-heeled boots.

Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman, also nominated for the Best Actor Award in The Responder, chose to go for a pop of colour in his jacket. He layered the double-breasted blue, yellow, and green checked jacket over a more traditional base of slim-fitting black trousers, a white dress shirt and a black butterfly bow tie. He tied the outfit together with a white pocket square.
