Captain Kirk is so GQ: Urban Gentleman Chris Pine in Summer Suits

Captain James T. Kirk
Original and New: William Shatner and Chris Pine
Do I dare admit this? … I think I shall, okay here it goes…. I’m not the biggest Star Trek fan in the world… and I don’t get excited about it- at all. Sorry if that hurt anyone’s feelings, buuut on a positive note I have seen quite few of the movies and they always entertain me. And I’ve also been hearing alot of buzz about how good the new Star Trek is, so I went over to The Spill and checked their review (posted below)- click the ‘Movies’ icon on the top left corner and scroll to Star Trek:

These guys are hilarious, I have NO idea how I came across them, but I check them out every once in awhile when I want to get a random outside review of a movie. Usually I don’t agree with movie critics (that includes these guys), but the difference with them is that they make me laugh, lol… (though they can be offensive at times, that’s another story though).

But anyway, in his breakthrough role, Chris Pine looks pretty good playing Captain James T. Kirk. He also manages to look equally as jaggedly handsome in his latest GQ Summer Suits spread.

The Linen Suit.

Nothing says summer more than linen. Except do you want to say summer 2009 or 1989? Avoid those billowy, pleated linen suits and hunt for a slimmer, more modern-cut one like this. And no cigars, no sandals, please.

The Dark Cotton Suit.

You can wear a dark suit in summer (especially in the evening), but it should be lightweight. A steel blue cotton suit fills the bill for work and postwork.*

The Whipcord Suit.

Like corduroy, whipcord is ribbed, but minus the fuzziness—and heaviness. Two-tone versions, like this suit in blue and white (also availablein black and white), project a subtle seersucker vibe without that southern lawyer/Ivy League bow-tie-guy oppressiveness.
(Suit, $120, by Uniqlo. Shirt, $40, by H&M. Tie, $135, by Rag & Bone. Tie bar by Kenneth Cole New York. Pocket square by Brooks Brothers.)

The White Suit.

Pulling off a white suit is easy—as long as you dress it down. You are not Tom Wolfe or Mr. Roarke, so skip the silk pocket square and firm tie knot. Keep it as relaxed and fun

(Suit, $895, by Boss Black. Shirt, $100, by Save Khaki. Pocket square, $30, by Turnbull & Asser. Belt, $33, by Paul Stuart. Shoes, $98, by Banana Republic. Sunglasses by Tom Ford.)

The Warm-Weather Plaid Suit.

You’ve got your single-malt, quail-hunting wool plaid, and then you’ve got plaid suits like this one—lightweight, sharply defined pattern, more midtown hustle than country bramble. Like a muted seersucker, it gives your business wardrobe an unexpected—but thoroughly appropriate—edge.
(Suit, $1,900, by Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers. Shirt, $150, by Thomas Pink. Tie, $98, by Theory. Bag, $515, by Porter. Pocket square by Brooks Brothers. Watch by IWC.)
