Baby blue, peach, shades of brown and even green – the men were ready to add a touch of colour to the red carpet of the 80th Golden Globes when it came to their choice of tailoring for the evening.

From newcomers such as Abbott Elementary’s Tyler James Williams (who won the Golden Globe for Actor in A Supporting Role – Comedy or Musical) and The Fableman’s Gabriel LeFelle or familiar favourites Donald Glover and Andrew Garfield, there was plenty to be inspired by from a sartorial perspective.

While officially a black-tie event, new codes for what constitutes formal attire have green lit a more creative generation of men who have the panache to experiment with their fashion. And thank the heavens for that.

Glover and Williams for instance ditched the idea that tailoring meant structure, swapping out the architecture of the suit for softer and more fluid draping fits. Irish actor and star of The Banshees of Inisherin Barry Keoghan and LFelle chose baby blue suits instead of regular black.

Comedian and hobby ceramicist Seth Rogen continues his evolution into one of the industry’s most stylish men with a lush peach ensemble.

Brown – from ochre to deep chocolate – is clearly in trend at the moment with Andrew Garfield, Eddie Redmayne and French director Damien Chazelle all choosing various shades of the colour for their own Golden Globes looks.

But when it comes to best on ground for the night? That might go to Mexican actor Diego Calva whose dark teal green three-piece suit by Gucci was flawless, from the fit to the colour to the finishing touch of a white carnation in the lapel.

And the best-dressed of the night goes to…Donald Glover, Tyler James Williams and Diago Calva.
