The SAG Awards: The Best Dressed Gentlemen - A Hand Tailored Suit

The SAG Awards: The Best Dressed Gentlemen

On 4th April 2021, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG) was a little different this year as the ceremony was pre-recorded before showing on our screens. The awards are handed out by the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) to the winning nominees, celebrating their outstanding performances in film and prime-time television. Despite the different format, just like the award season so far, celebrities didn't shy away from dressing up to celebrate! We at  A Hand Tailored Suit have already picked out some of the best dressed ladies from the night: now it's time to choose our best dressed gentlemen from the 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Luke Newton


 Nominated along with his 'Bridgerton' cast for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Drama Series, actor Luke Newton looked dashing in a Dolce & Gabbana double-breasted pinstripe suit styled with a burgundy shirt and printed tie. The six-button jacket was designed with small flapped pockets and peak lapels with a glistening cherry brooch as the finishing touch. The trousers are tapered for a close fit with the hem just touching the top of the actor's shoes. The burgundy shirt picks out the pinstripe very well and overall, creates a great sartorial evening look for Luke Newton.

Aldis Hodge

Nominated alongside his 'One Night in Miami' cast for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, actor Aldis Hodge looked ever so sharp in his Dolce & Gabbana three-piece black and gold brocade suit. Worn without a shirt, the brocade double-breasted waistcoat blends in very well with the trousers, almost adding a surprise element to the ensemble when the jacket isn't worn. Sharp front creases make this suit even more of a statement as the jacket features peak lapels, flapped pockets and matching fabric buttons. Through the gold accents in his accessories and the back of his velvet shoes, Aldis Hodge is notably one of the best dressed on the night.


Josh O'Connor 


Star of 'The Crown' Josh O'Connor wore a custom LOEWE three-piece suit as he was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series but was also amongst the winning cast of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Drama Series. The brown suit had a traditional feel about it from the combination of small notch lapels on the jacket, no lapels on the waistcoat and the cream shirt collar fastened with no tie. The jacket has a three-button fastening, with the matching buttons defining the waistcoat and jacket sleeves even more. The sharp trouser creases are really defined as the embroidered flower adds a subtle touch of colour to the actor's suit, a subtle suit with added character for Josh O'Connor.


Kelvin Harrison Jr.

Actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. was amongst the winning cast who were awarded Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture for the film 'The Trial of the Chicago 7', and on the night, he wore a two-piece short suit fro Gucci. The sky blue double-breasted suit was styled with a light blue pleated shirt with a ribbon tie hanging over the front. The jacket itself has wide peak lapels to flatter the broad shoulders of the garment, along with three flapped pockets and wooden buttons to perfectly suit the brightly coloured ensemble. The shorts have a pleated front as the overall outfit on Kelvin Harrison Jr. is very fun and smart for the winning actor.

Griffin Matthews


 Actor Griffin Matthews wore a vintage Italian blue tuxedo blazer for this year's Screen Actors Guild awards as 'The Flight Attendant' star was amongst his cast to be nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Paired with cropped casual black fitted jeans, the blazer is designed with three patch pockets (two large and one small) along with wide peak lapels that are further enhanced with the stitching on the edge. White buttons are attached for the front with the small versions used in the four-button cuffs as the jacket sleeves are slightly cropped, allowing the shirt cuffs to show. The velvet black bow tie adds class to Griffin Matthews' attire, as he portrays how to style vintage tailoring in the modern world very well.

Leslie Odom Jr.


 Wearing a colourful Berluti suit for the awards, star of 'One Night in Miami' was part of the cast up for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, as well as a nominee for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. The actor's two-piece suit truly stood out as an artistic piece with the gradient design going from hues of green down to hues of purple. The double-breasted jacket was fastened to blend in further with the matching roll neck as the jacket included peak lapels and flapped pockets. The black buttons on the front and cuffs are the perfect choice within this colourful attire, and it's another memorable suiting attire which Leslie Odom Jr. has worn.

Eugene Levy


 Nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in 'Schitt's Creek', actor Eugene Levy was part of the winning cast of the series as they were awarded Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The actor played it classic on the night as his single-breasted black suit from Prada worked wonders styled with a crisp white shirt and matching tie with the Prada logo. The jacket itself with notch lapels, flapped pockets and the classic welt breast pocket is styled with trousers tailored perfectly to the actor's form. The centre creases on the front of the trousers go towards what is a great piece of tailored attire for Eugene Levy.

 Daveed Diggs


Actor Daveed Diggs was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie for his role in 'Hamilton' and on the night, looked fresh in a two-piece Versace tuxedo with a shimmering black beaded crew neck top underneath. The jacket was made with contrasting black peak lapels as a metallic button was used for the fastening, along with smaller ones of the cuffs in a five-button format. The embellished motifs really enhance the luxurious nature of the suit and with thin black jet pockets added on the jacket, there's plenty to admire about Daveed Diggs' suit of the night.
