This month GQ correspondent Taffy Brodesser-Akner strolled through London with Tom Hiddleston, the star of Kong: Skull Island (and some Taylor Swift paparazzi shots). Here, the interviewer becomes the interviewee. 1 What happened the last time you said, “What’s the worst that could happen”? My children are a blessing. 2 How long did you have “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” stuck in your head after your interview? I shook it off pretty quickly. 3 What’s your drink?

Look Sharp Live Smart • We’ve loved 1980s-style varsity jackets ever since Teen Wolf and The Breakfast Club, but at this point the ultra-sporty kind feels a little…junior varsity. The re-imagined version that Dev Patel wears here is way more sophisticated. With the dark color and extra zippers, it’s closer to a motorcycle jacket than to what you earn when you make the baseball team. Wear it with anything from a tie to a tee, and you’ll look less like a high school jock and more like a style superstar.—JIM MOORE Coach 1941 $995 | coach.com The Retro revolutrion Look around the present and you’ll notice everyone finding inspiration in the past. There’s La La Land; there’s Bruno Mars; there’s probably a senator advocating for Prohibition somewhere. It makes sense: We’re in an era…

make the vertical leap

Unless you have a side gig as a referee, you’ve probably spent your life wearing only subtle, thin vertical stripes. But right now, the standout move is to go wider and wilder • Pairing stripes with more stripes might seem like voodoo magic, but there’s actually a simple trick: Just make sure some are wider than others. With that one change in scale, all those vertical lines will slim you down and raise you up. Polo $620 Dsquared2 dsquared2.com Pants $295 The Kooples thekooples.com • In the fashion rule book, right alongside “Show a little cu≠” and “Easy on the jodhpurs” is: “Wear light shirts with dark stripes.” Well, it’s time to retire that rule. Because what fun are stripes if you can’t turn them on their head? Shirt $170 Reiss reiss.com R O O…

the style guy

GQ style editor Mark Anthony Green shows you how to go old-school but not oldfashioned. But first: the problem with spring weather With all due respect, 50 degrees is the sweet spot from a sartorial standpoint, because you get to wear layers without one of those layers being a giant coat. A thick sweater and a leather jacket should be perfect. Or a cardigan and a military jacket. Some bombers are down-filled and therefore super warm and cozy. And all of those should hold up in the rain just fine. Bottom line: Add one more layer to your 65-degree outfit and you should be good. But I have to ask: Are you generally hard to please? Are you having trouble finding joy in perfect things? Were you one of the three…

the golden age of the instant camera…just got started

It took a while to develop, but an anti-Instagram era is here. We gave a few new models to our own Fred Woodward to test, but he only has eyes for one activity in this world makes me feel happier and more fully alive than the simple act of taking pictures. I’ve always fiercely guarded my amateur status, so I was lucky to start shooting at a time when the camera had evolved to be semi-automatic enough to be operated semi-successfully by a semi-pro like myself. I was lucky to have an SX-70. I may be in charge of design for GQ, but no creative Long before there was the point-andshoot or the iPhone or Hipstamatic or Instagram or Snapchat, there was the SX-70 Polaroid, a modern (in 1972) miracle of technology,…
