There were a few trends at last night’s 87th annual Academy Awards, but none more prominent and respected by Life, Tailored than the shawl collar jackets we saw on every man from NPH to Channing Tatum. Want to look like an Oscar guest at your next black tie event without spending the money for a team of stylists? We’ve got you covered.
Ansel Elgort killed it with the navy tux and black lapels from Prada, but you can get the same look from Combatant Gentleman for only $200.
Get the same sleek, slim-fit shawl collared look as Channing Tatum with this less expensive option from the J. Crew Ludlow Collection. Available for $525, this tuxedo will last you for years to come.
To match Chiwetel Ejiofor’s shorter lapels and trim cut, we suggest this gem from Tommy Hilfiger that comes in just around $350. It’s as classic as it comes, and classic never goes out of style.

As always, the man of the hour, the one and only NPH killed it with the grey tux (as well as with all his other wardrobe changes). You can get a slightly darker, but just as dapper, version of his look with this $200 charcoal tuxedo from Combatant Gentleman.
