Dude Du Jour, TIFF Edition: Max Irons
'The Riot Club' star is poised for sartorial stardom now that his movie about Oxford debauchery has officially made its TIFF debut. Here's how you can get the look, too.
Formal prep is about to step into the spotlight now that Lone Scherfig’s British thriller The Riot Club has made its TIFF debut , complete with all the tailored shirting, loafers, blazers and entitlement required of an Oxford-set film. “Think Ivy League but more formal,” says Dan Rookwood, Mr. Porter’s U.S. editor and expert in all things dapper.
Leading the charge in the film’s “elitist drinking club” look is star Max Irons – aka son of Jeremy – who is poised to be the next It Brit to beat, sartorially speaking and otherwise. “He’s got the frame of a model, which means he wears clothes well,” Rookwood says. “He’s classically handsome like a Greek god without being too much of a pretty boy. And he has a devil-may-care attitude that will either serve him well or get him into a little bit of trouble occasionally – probably both.”

So just how can men on both sides of the pond get the vibe, too?
"We’re talking flowing scarves and floppy hair worn with blazers, chinos and loafers. Probably accessorized with a bottle of champagne and an air of entitlement," Rookwood says. Some suggestions:
Richard James Moleskin blazer, $950.
Hackett poplin shirt, $180.
Loro Piana scarf, $450.
NN. 07 burgendy chinos, $150
Berluti loafers, $1,390
The Riot Club hits UK theaters on Sept. 19.
