PHOTOS: Zachary Quinto, On Broadway And In Style, Shares His Fashion Tips

2013-11-08-MR-PORTER-SHOT-06-211-BW

In the midst of his critically-acclaimed turn in Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie on Broadway, Zachary Quinto had a style chat with online haberdasher, Mr. Porter, sharing his personal take on style. Black and white, and suitably dramatic, shots of the 36-year-old actor accompany the story, harkening back to a New York Williams may have been more than a bit familiar with. Here are a few stylish highlights:

On the importance of cufflinks:

“It’s more a matter of trying to make sure I’m wearing things that fit well but that are not boring. As a guy, that’s a little more of a challenge than if you’re able to wear a big gown. We have to work with fewer resources. It becomes about the details. Cufflinks. Tie bars. Do you have a break in your trousers or is it a shorter hem? I’ve learnt a lot about tailoring: what fits and what lines are good for me and my body type.”

On the difference between New York and L.A. style:

“New York is more about function over form. LA’s a little more about how things look. Here, there’s less time to think about it. I put less thought and effort into it. I will literally wear the same thing for a few days because my days are spent running around.”

On mixing and matching prints:

“If I look back, I used to be a little more flagrant or a little more on the nose with trying to put crazy patterns together. I’ve always been interested in a plaid with a stripe, or some kind of pattern that is offset by something that’s different. But now I try to do it in a subtler way. It’s still there if you’re looking for it, but it’s not screaming for attention.”

      He’s the one we should all be fussing over- he’s talented, sexy, and smart.

      Oh and the difference between New York and LA fashion is that New York is a fashion capitol and LA is a spangly, fugly, boutique-ridden outlet mall of a city.
