The Playbook For The Modern Man

How To Get Zachary Quinto’s Style

Spacesuits might not be your forte but for one actor it’s a regular ensemble for traversing the fringes of the galaxy. Luckily he also has his style chops sorted back home back on Earth. The name is Zachary Quinto and he plays Spock in J.J Abrams’ modern rendition of Star Trek.

In today’s edition of celebrity style steal we’re leaving the pointy ears and man-bangs at home as we take a look at the 39-year-old’s impeccable off-screen style. Live long and let your wardrobe game prosper.


Breaking It Down

Zachary Quinto is not one to shy away when it comes to stepping out in colour. Often opting for brighter hues that complement his natural charisma, the American actor can easily pull off the latest fashion trends with little effort. All it takes is a bit of creativity, good fitment, statement prints and you’re there.

Quinto has three key looks to suit every season and occasion but the recurring theme throughout is an off-beat Summer look that works even in the colder seasons.

For the red carpet it’s all about the burgundy suit. A conservative colour by no means, Quinto makes sure to keep the depth of the hue in check by contrasting it with a textured white shirt. This allows for the vibrant tie and pocket square to do its job nicely without being overpowered by a sea of purple. Pair it with tan dress shoes and you’re on your way to a standout look.

Moving along there’s Quinto’s more Summer casual and street-inspired look for all seasons. The highly versatile look is a simple case of pairing a suede textured bomber in light navy with the legendary white denim and white sneakers (Stan Smiths are huge at the moment). Throw in a Summer polka dot shirt and you’ve got Timberlake written all over your next get up.

Last but not least is Quinto’s weekend look. It oozes endless Summer cool and remains at the pointy end of tailored garments that aren’t suits. The fitting is the key factor here, taking inspiration directly from the street styles of Europe and more specifically Italy’s Pitti Uomo rat pack. Again it’s not how many garments you layer but what those layers convey. A statement shirt with a wild pattern print is key to this look, worn naturally and tucked perfectly into a pair of fitted chinos. Pair it with dark brown brogues and you’ve scored Spock’s off-duty wardrobe.
