STYLE REFEREE

TOM FELTON - RED CARD - FLAGRANT MISUSE OF SADDLE SHOE

Sending off for light suede casual shoe teamed with dark dressy three piece at Rise of the Planet of The Apes Primiere.

Am gutted for the Brit, as suit is fine, while shirt collar and tie function adequately, however cannot let this ham-fisted pairing slide, especially at his own film do*. A common and fundamental mistake: Shoes far too light for dark suit. His brazen saddle shoes are also too, too scruffy for this film star caper. Must reiterate importance of delivering a look from head to toe, even if subverting things. No evidence of clever mismatch élan, and is too young to be not caring surely. Particular shame as young Tom's representing well in U.S., however, my bin men match their strides and boots with more flair. Felton also sporting belt with a suit, a second serious sartorial misdemeanour. Absolutely no appeal. Sorry Felto' mate , early bath. Proper dressing is after all what separates us from the apes, no?

TS out.
