The French actor Jean DuJardin is well known worldwide thanks to “The artist” who won many Oscars especially one for the best actor of the year. Since Jean represents the French culture in Hollywood with Marion Cotillard.
That also means that he is the incarnation of French Style.
Concerning casual events we can see that Jean Dujardin has a really relaxed and simple style. In fact we can take the example of his passage in front of the cameras at the overview of “the artist”. His main goal is to stay as natural as possible whether for in his attitude but also in his garments and especially in his suits.
His wardrobe is essentially composed of made to measure Grey suits, they all have the same characteristics : a single breasted suit with two buttons (the last button always unbuttoned), narrow lapels, 2 hip pockets with flaps and a center vent in the back. Concerning the pants it’s the same deal, stay simple and take it easy. To match with the suits, he wears a well tailored black or white shirt with the 2 first buttons unbuttoned. You can add to this outfit beautiful black polished shoes.
In Jean Dujardin’s style we have noticed a difference between when he was in France and now in America. Indeed, at the time that he was still in France he was generally wearing garments that all french people wear for formal events. That includes of course to dress up with a made to measure tuxedo.
Jean’s tuxedos are generally in a a dark black, (like our Bologna fabric) and with black satin lapels. Concerning his tuxedo outfit he always stays very sober and classic with almost no accessories. Actually his tuxedo’s have a different style then his suits that we have described above. It is a single breasted tux with one button, 2 hip pockets with double welts, wide lapels and with a center vent in the back. You can match your tuxedo suit like Jean Dujardin with a white handmade tuxedo shirt composed of studs and a wing collar as you will be able to put a beautiful black bow-tie.
After his glory period with “the artist”, Jean Dujardin went to live in America at Los Angeles near Hollywood. Even though his fantastic French personality has not changed, his style has. Actually it’s not really his tuxedo outfit that has changed but the accessories. In fact, it’s in that kind of moment that you see the importance of accessories because you have the impression that the whole outfit is different but indeed it’s only one or two accessories which have been changed.
For proof, Jean has now an “American style” because he switched the traditional black bow-tie for a simple black tie.
