2018’s Golden Globes were a history-making affair, in many ways.  It was the first time the Cecil B. DeMille was awarded to a black woman, it was the first time an Asian-American actor won an award for Best Actor in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy, it was the first time the majority of its attendees banded together to wear all black in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives.  It was an incredible evening and an excellent platform on which to raise awareness for the endemic gender discrimination that we face not just in Hollywood but in all industries all over the world.  Here at Milk Shirts, our own founder Sheetal Pritmani is female, working in the men’s tailoring business, which is largely dominated by men.  Causes such as these are of the utmost importance to us, so we would like to praise the men who chose to join the women on the red carpet in their #AllBlackEverything looks, in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns for gender equality.  Here’s some #AllBlackEverything inspiration for you to get behind the cause, too.


Justin Timberlake – Mr. Timberlake went for a pretty classic #AllBlackEverything look, with a single button tuxedo, featuring a peaked lapel in a satin finish and a matching satin butterfly bowtie.


Chris HemsworthThor himself chose a more fashion-forward approach in a tone-on-tone black paisley brocade suit.  He kept the rest of his look on the more subtle side, with an unbuttoned black tuxedo shirt, sans tie, achieving and overall more relaxed feel.  He finished things off with black velvet shoes, which we think is a nice touch.

Bill Pullman

Bill Pullman – Similar to Mr. Timberlake, Bill chose a more traditional tuxedo look, however his take on it featured a shawl collar instead of a peaked lapel and included a black satin pocket square. His pants could have done with a bit of hemming and he really should have taken the phone out of his pocket for this photo-call (please, remember, always put your phone in your inner suit jacket pocket!) but other than that, it’s a pretty fool-proof look.

.Bob Odenkirk

Bob Odenkirk – We like Bob’s decision to opt for a tie instead of the typical bowtie with his look, particularly as it allowed him to accessorise a bit more, through the addition of a slick silver tie-bar.  He’s great on Better Call Saul and he’s great on the red carpet.

Ewan McGregor – The Scotsman put his own style twist on a classic black tuxedo by pairing it with a textured black shirt to add a bit of depth to his look, which we think looks great particularly when photographed.  Ever the rebel, he finished things off with a pair of black shoes adorned with a pair of silver rings pierced through the leather.


Aziz Ansari – The Master of None star and history-making winner of the award for Best Actor in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy definitely looked every bit the winner as he stood out in a sophisticated velvet jacket and matching bowtie.  It’s an excellent choice for him and we were pleased to see him looking so dapper as he accepted his history-making win as the first Asian-American actor to receieve the award.  He’s also our pick for best dressed.

Darren Criss

Darren Criss – Like Hemsworth, Darren wasn’t one to hold too tightly onto tradition, as he turned up in a black tone-on-tone patterned double-breasted suit.  Darren chose a four-button double-breasted jacket, cutting a high neckline, so we like his decision to forgo a bowtie or tie.

Max Minghella – The Handmaid’s Tale actor erred further from the side of black tie in this classic black suit, black shirt and black tie combination, but he kept things slightly more formal by selecting a pair of shiny patent leather shoes.

Ansel Elgort – Though Mr. Baby Driver has gone for a pretty traditional tuxedo look, we would like to call him out for having an impeccably fit look overall.  When it comes to a pretty straight-forward #AllBlackEverything look, since the look is innately simple, the most important thing is to get the fit perfect.  An impeccably fit all-black look will always look infinitely better than any colorful, accessorised ill-fitted look.
