Chris Hemsworth Shows You How To Rock The Perfect Suit Without A Dress Shirt

Men in suits and t-shirts.

You can trust an Australian to turn any formal look into a cool and casual affair. Chris Hemsworth managed to do just that overnight when he strolled around New York in nothing but a finely tailored deep red suit with black detailing paired to a white tee with slick mahogany dress shoes.

The Thor actor has never been a huge fan of suiting up so this pared back look has been a bit of a signature style of Hemsworth. What we’re noticing though is a bit more experimentation of the fabric patterning to bring a bit more polish to the otherwise understated combo.


Just a day prior the actor was spotted in the same suit and white t-shirt combo but this time in blue check by Etro with black dress shoes. It’s a reliable pairing without much effort or rules required other than the fit of the suit and the fit of the t-shirt (keep it slim, no baggy tees). Another pointer to tale from this is combination is that by simply tucking in the t-shirt, the look takes on a far more formal and sharper look. It doesn’t look like Hemsworth is a tucker himself but you can still nail it with our guide on how to tuck your t-shirt. So there you have it. No dress shirt, no tie, no pocket square. Just a good old fashioned smart casual affair. And you have L.A based stylist Samantha McMillen to thank for that.
