The Look: The Green Hornet

Hey, I never promised you that every look on Well-Groomed would be practical. And believe me, I've seen plenty of guys still being coerced into participating in masquerade themed weddings. If you're gonna do it, at least do it with style a la Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet.

Well-Groomed Groom: Color Theory

Anytime Pantone makes an appearance at a wedding, you know you're in for some unusual color combos. In this case, the groomsmen wear teal ties and yellow Chucks, while the groom sports an orange tie and brown leather wingtips. Grey, 3-piece suits all around.

The Look: The Tourist

Johnny Depp sports a few different wedding-worthy looks in The Tourist. To master his free-spirited sophisticate vibe, you've gotta step up your shaving game. Being a free spirit, you've probably already got the shoulder-length "I don't care" hair, but a fresh shave and trim will keep you from looking like a hobo. Add some franc cuff links (Yes, I know France uses the euro now), cognac, and a sleek cigarette case (because free spirts don't care about lung cancer) to the equation.

Grab the Paris iPhone app before you head off to the honeymoon. Sure, you've got wanderlust for days, but your newly-acquired spouse won't think getting lost in a foreign country is fun/exciting/romantic...

A Well-Groomed Groom: Patterns & Purples

This groom gets everything right: mixing grey and brown (suit and shoes), mixing argyles and stripes (socks and ties), and coordinating with (not matching) the groomsmen. He even had two distinct looks. The first was a traditional grey suit, the second a teal and gold brocade jacket. And the ride. Do we have to say anything about that car? Let's face it, it doesn't really matter what you're wearing if you're riding out in a Porsche 1600.

Fit to Be Tied: A Two-Fer

These Dolbeau ties pack a double dose of style. Each limited edition, reversible tie has a crazy plaid side and a complimentary solid side. If the plaid side's too chaotic for your wedding, just reverse the tie and wear it with the solid colored side on top. No matter which way you wear it, you'll be flashing an extra shot of color. As if that's not incentive enough, they're also customizable. Go online to choose the tie's width, tip style, and length.

Versus: Jon Hamm & Don Draper

Rhyming first names and hand-in-pocket stances aside, Jon Hamm and his Mad Men alter ego, Don Draper, are nearly complete opposites.

Hamm repeatedly goes for an open collared, five o'clock (or later) shadow look that's tailor made for beach nuptials. I mean, really, why wear a tie if you don't have to? Draper's impeccable, but conservative suit, straight as an arrow part, and clean shave fit the City Hall wedding bill to a T.
