From the early Step Up days on through G.I. Joe21 Jump Street, and beyond, Channing Tatum has consistently rocked a laid-back vibe. Relaxed jeans with an untucked button-front – casually topped by a vest or blazer. Denim with a jacket, Henley, baseball hat, and sneakers. A newsboy cap with aviators, chambray, and boots. This leading man makes it all look easy. Because really, it is.

When it comes to the style game, the always-smooth Michael Fassbender’s got it all figured out. Impeccable suits, worn with just-right finishing touches or a debonair open collar. Sharp blazers atop dark jeans and untucked shirts. Leather jackets thrown casually over V-neck tees. This leading man manages to make it all look easy. Because for him, it actually is. (Who else is ready for the Golden Globes in 45 minutes flat?)

Get Michael Fassbender's Style

To cop one of his signature looks, follow these simple steps:

  1. Start with a dark pair of narrow-leg jeans and a crisp button-front. Skip the tie, leave the top three buttons undone, and wear the shirt untucked, but only if the bottom hits above your hips – any longer and the look can quickly veer toward sloppy.
  2. Pick a tailored suit jacket or sport coat in neutral black or grey. Throw that on. And don’t bother doing up the top button. The goal is to look relaxed and smooth, but not overly polished.
  3. Grow out your scruff. Even if you’re not starring in Macbeth (yes, chances are you aren’t), beards are having a moment. Just keep it under control. Trim underneath the jawline and above the lip. And if you’re really getting into it, do as Fassbender did for the Globes: rub a little flyaway-taming pomade into your palms and give that beard a quick pat before heading out.

Extra inspiration, right this way. Our Leading Man: Get Michael Fassbender’s Smooth Style Boutique opens Sunday, April 27, at 11AM ET.
