To celebrate yesterday's release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, we're taking the opportunity to big up the main man. He's the winner's wizard, Mithradir himself, the Stormcrow... Gentlemen, please take a moment to applaud for Mr. Gandalf the Grey.
Gandalf's style, as his name suggests, revolves around a single color palette: grey. His subtle robes, complemented by a stylishly weathered wizard hat, makes him stand out from the hobbits, in their Mumford and Sons-esque waistcoats and breeches.
Gandalf is as well known for his beard as he is for his magic skills, and love of pipes. But if you're going to grow a beard, keep it under control, please.
Gandalf is effortlessly cool, and practical with it. Think you could take on the Nazgul in a pair of skinny jeans? No chance. Had he lived today, or even existed at all, a modern interpretation of G-Dog's style might be a marl-grey sweatshirt, a pair of dark grey brushed cotton chinos, finished off with some tough, brown desert boots, and a magical staff of power. It's a look that screams, "Chill, guys, I've got this."
