Emmy Exclusive: Jon Hamm On Why He Looks So Good in a Tuxedo

Share

Breaking News! “Mad Men” Emmy nominee Jon Hamm recently told us his secrets for formal wear attire. Why does he look so good in a tuxedo, we were prodded to ask him: “Well, it’s mostly because a team of professionals staples me into that thing and makes sure it’s pressed. I have a lot of tuxedos. I have too many tuxedos. A person shouldn’t have so many tuxedos.” Does he use shirt studs, cufflinks, cummerbunds? “U try to keep it kind of simple because when you put those things in the equation they tend to malfunction. Cufflinks are all right. But studs, a drag. Cummerbunds? Drag. Because they’re not situated right. Suspenders? That’s an easy enough fix.” And bow ties? Does he wear a clip on? Or do a four in one on his own? “I try to tie it myself, and then I fail, and someone ties it for me.” He adds, with a grin: “I can tie a a regular tie.”
