What kind of suit does the most buzzed-about director in America don on a daily basis? The answer may surprise you. Turns out American Hustle director David O. Russell is obsessed with J. Crew suits, or so says the Stephen Galloway-penned profile covering the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, on newsstands today. 

COVER STORY: The Wild Imagination of David O. Russell: 'I'm an ADD guy."

According to the piece, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker owns five identical three-piece suits from the American brand, which he wears every day. Our photo shoot was no different, with Russell sporting one of his signature ensembles on set and in the photos.

While Russell's exact J. Crew suit style of choice is unclear, the closest match seems to be the brand's Ludlow, which is made from Italian wool and comes in at $785 — vest and all.

No word whether or not he'll sport the Jenna Lyons-helmed brand to the Oscars or go for something more traditionally luxe, but we'll be keeping an eye out.
