The custom look is by newly minted creative director Simon Spurr.

Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stepped out on the Emmys red carpet on Monday night in a richly colored custom velvet tux by Eidos.

"Simon [Spurr] is one of my all-time favorite designers," says stylist Ilaria Urbinati of the brand's creative director, who took the helm of the Italian brand owned by Isaia in 2017, and debuted his first full Spring collection this past July.

Urbinati worked with the British menswear designer on the custom tuxedo featuring a cognac-colored velvet jacket with a black lapel, paired with a black bow tie, white shirt and black pants.

"I wanted Nikolaj with brown tones," says the stylist, who wanted to play up his natural hair color. Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO show, teamed the look with Tod's shoes, Montblanc cufflinks, and a Breitling watch.

Coster-Waldau is nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, alongside castmate Peter Dinklage.

The 70th annual Emmy Awards airs live on Monday, Sept. 17, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on NBC.
