Has Hollywood Gone Mad for Plaid?

12/01/2006 at 02:00 PM ET

Is lumberjack chic overtaking Hollywood’s hottest men? We noticed Heath in his red-and-black plaid shirt a few weeks ago, which we chalked up to being a Brokeback Mountain memento. Then, we turned a blind eye towards Vince Vaughn in his plaid shirt, hoping it might be for his role in Fred Claus. But we just can’t ignore trend-setting Adam Brody’s buffalo plaid buttondown, though — more Brawny Man than Barney’s, the lumberjack look is clearly taking over for fall. Tell us: What do you think of the look?

If Heath’s wearing it, I love it.

wow thats such a bad look.

Plaid almost always needs another layer. Go for a nice river-driver, or maybe a fleece vest underneath. If you’re going to do the plaid thing, do it full out. But maybe with less red.

(And Heath should consider buttoning his bottom button.)

Each man seems to be channeling his inner Jack Kerouac — and I love it! Lumberjacks are much more appealing than, say, an actor with a celebrity stylist who dresses him the next big trend from D&G. Wear what is comfortable and keeps you warm. I’d take a walk in the woods with Adam or Heath any day.

I think that thoes guys are verry cute. I think that the plaid look is very unbecoming.

Adam wears the plaid well I think, but might want to rethink the hat. It makes him look like Jason Lee (which isn’t a bad way to look, but Jason Lee has cornered the market on it already).
