Paul Mescal steals the show at the Oscars with his Old Hollywood-inspired Gucci suit and platinum Cartier watch



Mescal’s First Oscars

Mescal walked the champagne carpet with movie-star magnetism. It was his first Oscars, though surely not his last. He didn’t know if he was going to win (he likely had his doubts), but he showed up and turned one out for the books. Wearing a custom Gucci tuxedo, Mescal was worlds away from the County Kildare guy wearing five-inch seamers.

An Expert-Level Fit

The look comprised an ivory tuxedo jacket, which fell slightly longer at the hips and had fanged-out satin lapels, and a pair of über kick-flared trousers with massive rolled-up hems. A proper dickie bow tie. It was Old Hollywood glamour on heat. It was an expert-level fit. The styling team even told us prior to the awards that they were slightly nervous about the reaction the outfit would get. Please! No place for nerves here. Mescal won.

Mescal’s Love for Old Hollywood

“Paul’s suit is inspired by his love of old Hollywood with the white double-breasted satin lapel Gucci jacket and red silk corsage,” stylist Felicity Kay tells GQ. “The silk shirt is so fine it’s translucent, and beautifully contrasts with the structure of the wool trousers.”

Mescal’s Platinum Tank Chinoise Watch

Within the wider watch-spot loving circle, Brynn Wallner (aka Dimepiece) is a big fan of Mescal’s Oscars magic, and isn’t surprised he’s won the red/champagne carpet. “He has made a name for himself as a bonafide #CartierBoy, working officially with the maison for this year’s awards season,” Wallner tells GQ. “For each appearance, he’s worn his fair share of Tanks in varying shades and references, sticking mostly to the Louis and Must collections; but for the Academy Awards, he went with something decidedly more elevated. Choosing from the pedigreed “Cartier Privé” collection, Paul put himself in the Tank Chinoise for Hollywood’s Biggest Night. His Chinoise is not steel, not gold – but platinum, adding a little extra weight to his wrist,” continues Wallner.
