Benedict Cumberbatch for Esquire Online  
The styling in the 3rd shot is particularly deadly - combining various animal based textures (beaver bit fur and leather) for a relaxed albeit very luxurious look. The hybridization of technical synthetic fabrics (e.g. nylon/polyurethane) with the more traditional is a perfect visual metaphor for Benedict: an old school actor’s actor in a lethally modern ‘brainy is the new sexy’ vessel.  
Additionally the 3 roll 2 jacket featuring the shawl lapel is an interesting amalgamation of various regional aesthetics, a look that could easily go awry with a necktie (but is saved here by Cucci cashmere). While Armani is often - and rightfully - dismissed as passe when it comes to their tailoring offerings, this is one of the better pieces to come out of their mainline collection. 
I’d never really appreciated Esquire’s more directional approach to styling, but where GQ takes a J.Crew-esque mindset to these things (often bordering on gimmicky) the former appears to be pushing the narrow boundaries of menswear with every little detail. (Source: Esquire)
