Simplicity is key when it comes to great tailoring and, unsurprisingly, Jon Hamm's
style-fu is very strong in this department. Here he is at the premier for the latest series of Mad Men

and wide spread collar shirt are both excellent, but the real stroke of genius is the black tie
. It might not seem like much, but the subtle change in colour adds depth to the whole outfit without resorting to any 'look at me' shouty ties.
