Michael Fassbender is an actor known for his performances in Hollywood blockbusters including 300, X-Men, Inglourious Basterds, Jane Eyre and Prometheus. In 2013 he portrayed a slave owner in the film 12 Years a Slave, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

In addition to his impressive and versatile body of work, Fassbender is also known for his impeccable sense of style. He's generally seen in simple, classic clothing which stands him in perfect stead for taking on the catwalks.

The main reason that Fassbender gets it right over and over again is that he has a great understanding of what works for him… and he sticks to it! He typically wears black or darker earthy colours as he knows that these work brilliantly in contrast with his fair colouring. Nine times out of ten, he pairs these darker tones with a gorgeously classic white or pale blue shirt. So simple, but so effective.

Fassbender also appreciates just how important fit is in style. His clothing is always beautifully tailored to fit, which is something we very much appreciate!

We think that Fassbender’s particular brand of style elegance is due to the simple and neutral garments he picks out. This is not a man who is drawn to bold patterns or colours. Instead, he typically chooses plain finishes in high quality garments.

There is one way that Fassbender can be seen to add extra interest to his attire. How? With texture. Incorporating different textures can go a long way towards adding a little something special without  jeopardising the simple elegance of the overall look.
