Robert Downey Jr. is no doubtedly one of the most popular Hollywood actors; I especially love his roles as Marvel’s Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man and as his Oscar-nominated Charlie Chaplin in the 1992 classic Chaplin. But one thing we can admire about Robert Downey Jr. as of late is his impeccable cool style and love for old school tailoring. From movie premieres, TV show appearances and press conferences, this is one actor for the ladies and the gents to take style inspo to shake up your wardrobe and help you stand out from the plain suits, with the sneaker twist.
As we all know, Robert Downey Jr is a big fan of wearing immaculate suits to the many events he attends, as well as in his movies. And like his Iron Man character, it’s all about pristine tailoring with a flash of colour. Ted Baker has you covered if it’s the old-school business suit look you’re after. Their grey subtle check -patterened suit is a great alternate to the plain suit, but if you prefer a more demure look then opt for the checked waistcoat only. Hugo Boss offer a more graphic check-patterend suit jacket. If you’re willing to spend the extra bob for the classic black suit with luxurious detailing, Hugo Boss also have a dandy velvety soft cotton dinner jacket with silk lapels but Noos & Monkey have a similar blazer at a cheaper price. As for the colourful ties and bow ties, ASOS and Marks & Spencer have a great range of suit accessories at affordable prices.

Robert Downey is notorious for wearing shades, no matter the occasion. Tinted, round but always stylish, steal his glasses-wearing style with the help of these high street & designer picks. Warby Parker has a great pair for the simply black shades, whereas Ray-Ban & Oakley offers a selection of tinted lenses. For more affordable eyewear choose Red Herring & Police, which are available at Debenhams.
Sneakers and non-smart shoes are very much a staple to Robert Downey’s style. Why? Because they are super comfy! Similar to his black & silver Strass sneakers are these luxurious Christian Louboutin embellished hi-tops, but if you’re looking for a more reasonable budget, then pick from Supra & Adidas. And if you want to copy Robert Downey shoe for shoe, then the exclusive Alejandro Ingelmo TRON sneakers are the ones for you.
