Ode to the Oscars

There are just a few days left until the most anticipated event of awards season. The famous Academy Awards is now in its 88th edition and here are five interesting facts:

1. The name “Oscar” was said to have originated from the Academy librarian and eventual executive director, Margaret Herrick, who claimed the statuette resembled her Uncle Oscar;

2. The gold-plated statuette is 34cm high and weighs 4kg;

3. Italy is the country with the most Oscars won for “Best Foreign Language Film” category;

4. During World War II (from 1942 to 1944), the statuette was made from plaster for fear that a gold version might be stolen or sold;

5. Walt Disney holds a record for most Oscars won, having been awarded 28 of which 4 in one year alone.

Statuettes and winners aside, we’re also interested in red carpet style.Men can never go wrong with a tuxedo, though subtle and contemporary details can make all the difference. Our wool and silk version features a sleek silhouette and a unique two-tone texture on the jacket, creating a distinctive look that will set you apart.

A pleated tuxedo shirt with double cuffs and an elegant silk bow tie complete the ensemble.
