Jude Law's gentlemanly dress sense

Jude Law advises people to express themselves through their clothes and always make sure they feel comfortable in what they're wearing.

Jude Law thinks there's something really gentlemanly about a man in a hat, which is why he loves to wear them.

The British actor has a dapper style, which he's demonstrated in movies such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, Alfie and Spy. For Jude, there's one accessory which makes an outfit extra special.

"I love hats," he told Britain's GQ magazine. "Someone told me a story once that (former US president) J.F. Kennedy was the first public figure to stop wearing a hat because he thought they made his ears look big, and since then men stopped feeling the need to wear hats in public. Prior to that, every man wore a hat. I think there's something really gentlemanly about men wearing hats and that's why I always wear one."

While many celebrities dread getting spruced up for a showbiz event, Jude is quite the opposite. His "old-fashioned" love of dressing up comes from his father, who would always wear a jacket and tie. Despite the star's love of looking good, comfort comes first.

"Be yourself, be comfortable," he advised. "Enjoy yourself with how you live and how you express yourself in your clothes."

It seems Jude's style credentials have rubbed off on his son Rafferty, who he has with ex-wife Sadie Frost. The 19-year-old has begun to pave a modelling career for himself after making his catwalk debut during DKNY's fashion show in London last year (14), and recently lent his chiseled facade to Effra London's lookbook. Rafferty is signed to Select Model Management and puts the brand's latest jewelry range on display in a series of smoldering shots.
