At the Grammys, Men's Style Got Weird — But Without Purpose

Miguel and Jack Antonoff

R&B singer Miguel’s joots solicited a “this ain’t it, chief” the moment they touched hallowed ground. Producer extrodinaire Jack Antonoff’s oversized double-breasted blazer and an inexplicable JFK pin made us yearn for the days when swirly-ing theater kids was socially acceptable.

Harry Styles

Styles, in a way, provided a prime example and and apt synecdoche for the entirety of menswear’s music’s biggest night. Arriving in a florentine necklined, Swarovski crystal-bedazzled bespoke jumpsuit from up-and-coming label Egonlab, the ex-One Direction man should’ve looked downright dreamy: pushing boundaries, tats out, chest even farther out, locks perfectly quaffed.

But the jumper by Egonlab, while immaculately tailored and intriguingly chic, didn’t actually do much for Harry in ways of fit — the silhouette left Mr. Styles looking weirdly sexless, elongating the torso and squatting the legs while somehow not showing quite enough skin and draped just a tad too loose to deliver the iconíc sex symbol vibes we’ve come to expect from the one of the biggest names in the world.

Steve Lacy

There were, of course, also loads of standard-setting looks that properly married overstated and outstanding. Known ‘fit god Steve Lacy took home IH’s award for best dressed, with both his red carpet Saint Laurent and all-leather ensemble working wonders for the Gemini Rights singer.

Bad Bunny

Bad Bunny demonstrated how less can be more, taking center stage in a very sensible (if slightly boxy) suit and anything-but-sensible flat-brim Green Dodgers hat.

And while the 65th annual GRAMMY Awards swore intrigue nonetheless, with a cast of certified superstars poised to break records and generally look like the red-carpet hotties they should be, it quickly became apparent that the night might not be everything we were promised — at least not in the menswear department.
