How To Get Chris Evans’ Style

When Captain America hangs up the stars and stripes spandex, he does it with absolute class. Chris Evans is the big man behind the superhero suit also happens to cut a mean figure in a real suit.

If there’s one word to describe his look, it’s clean. Extremely clean, to be exact. Whether the 34-year-old is rocking the red carpet in a regal three-piece, cruising the town in smart casual or just picking up groceries in muscle fit granddad shirts, he lets the simple clean lines of his wardrobe do the talking. That and his 17-inch biceps.

Today we’re taking a look at Evans’ three key wardrobe ensembles which covers his most formal looks to his more laid back and smart casual wares to his preferred street threads.

Breaking It Down


Let’s get the obvious point out of the way. Chris Evans is a body building giant as required for his ongoing role as Captain America. But just because you’re a serious gym junkie, doesn’t mean you can’t dress right for your body type.

As we mentioned earlier, Evans uses his clean-cut on screen persona to flow through onto his real world looks. Rarely will you see the man in drab designer shirts which are oversized, over styled or adorned with rips or loud graphics. It’s all about solid classic colours, strategic touches of pattern on accessories and an immense attention to grooming detail that gets Evans over the line.

A lot of it does have to do with the physique as it’s hard not to look good in anything when you stand at 188cm tall with a 47-inch chest. But we’d like to attribute some of it to a look we call ‘conservative cool’.

Captain Sartorial


This is the crowning look for Evans on the red carpet. Less flashy than his louder Marvel counterpart in Robert Downey Jr., Evans likes to rock his three-piece suit whenever he gets a chance.

The suits are bespoke items which sit snug with his body where it should and widen up to take in his upper body muscle mass where necessary. Ever seen a bodybuilder guy try an off the rack suit? It’s like trying on a wetsuit where the blazer can’t button up and wrinkles appear everywhere. A big no-no in men’s fashion.

Follow the way of the Captain. Stick to tailor made pieces which work with your body’s natural curves. Do it right and people will notice your powerful presence and not find you intimidating with all your awkward bulging bits on show.

The classic tux, the royal navy or the charcoal all form the cornerstone of a wholesome Evans colour ensemble. Meanwhile, striped ties and polka dot pocket squares help to give the classic look a bit more kick. He is a superhero after all.

Uptown Hunk


When it’s time to kick on to an after party, Evans keeps things casual without dropping his game. In this case, he will always wear a well-sorted tie and pair it with outerwear such as a light weight knit or leather jacket.

This breaks up the formality a bit without losing that clean cut appeal Evans has worked so hard to cultivate in Hollywood. Suit with tie, knitwear with tie, leather with tie. Many more options, same sophisticated look.

Do You Even Lift


When it’s the weekend Evans unwinds with notch collar or granddad style shirts made for supreme muscle fit. If you’re going to have the body of Captain America, you may as well show off some serious guns, right?

Simplicity is the key yet again. Solid colours like maroon, blue and white all do the job fine here. It’s not so much about statement pieces as it is the entire package. Boots are simple worn suede or leather items paired with light coloured trousers or chinos. Timberland boots will work fine in this case. When the weather drops, simply throw over a well sorted cardigan with a cool emblem or small logo and you’re away.

What makes this look easy is Evans’ clean hair styling and immaculate beard game. It’s never patchy and blends well with the rugged gentleman look.

No doubt a hero on screen and a hero in the wardrobe.
