Spotlight: Peter Dinklage

Peter Dinklage is one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, with 56 titles in the last 19 years, including multi-episode stints on TV shows. Needless to say, he is in demand. His prominent role on Game of Thrones has made him a household name, but I almost guarantee you had seen him before he was Tyrion Lannister.

I think it is probably safe to say that Mr. Dinklage has to put a little more thought into his wardrobe than most leading men. He doesn’t resemble the typical Hollywood hunks or even most average men, but that doesn’t mean that he has to skimp on style. He has found proportions that work for his body so that he can wear any of the hottest looks. I mean the man even covered the Style Issue of Esquire.

Peter DinklageThe trick when you have a difficult to dress body shape is tailoring. We have talked time and again about how valuable a tailor is to any man, but this is especially true if clothes off the rack really don’t fit you. Besides having a stylist, like most stars, you can bet that Peter has a reliable tailor in his bag of tricks.

Peter Dinklage also just has a wonderfully classic style. He tends to wear suits with clean, traditional lines in no-fail colors. He utilizes the classic V-neck, leather jackets, casual ties, etc. But none of this means he doesn’t have some fun with the details. He takes risks with unexpected accessories, like ascots, and is constantly changing his hair and facial hair–this helps keep him versatile in his wonderfully various roles.

Peter Dinklage goes casualPeter Dinklage is an incredibly talented actor who adds some much needed diversity to the Hollywood pool. He hasn’t let his difficult to dress body shape pigeon hole him or hold him back. In fact he is probably one of our spotlights that is most aware of what works for him personally. You should dedicate as much thought into what you wear as well.
