Grammys Fashion: Dudes Don't Like Being Tied Up

They'll button up their shirts all the way, but forget about wearing a tie.

At this year's Grammys, some guys treated the red carpet like a black-tie event, others went weird and a whole other group lost the tie part of their ensembles altogether. And no, we’re not talking about those whose low-cut or deeply unbuttoned shirts or super-casual tees couldn’t support a bowtie. No, these guys buttoned their shirts up to the very top and simply went sans tie.

John Legend let his light gray Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo and crisp white shirt speak for themselves, while Nick Jonas also shunned a neck accessory in his sharp plaid Versace suit. 



NO TIE GUYS: Bastille, (mostly) sans ties. 


The night’s big winner Sam Smith lost his white bowtie once he got inside the theater, leaving his white button-up bare underneath two different suits. And a couple of nominated bands seemed to have gotten the no-tie trend memo too: The majority of the boys from Bastille (in Armani) and Pentatonix (wearing labels including Dsquared2, Christian Dior, Thom Browne, All Saints and Saint Laurent) kept it simple, tailored and — naturally — necktie-free.
