Fans of Benedict Cumberbatch already know that he's a snazzy dresser but his latest outfit just took evening wear to the next level.

On Wednesday, the 38-year-old "The Imitation Game" star joined "12 Years A Slave" co-star Lupita Nyong'o for the opening of the Bally flagship store in London.

The actor ditched his usual black tie for more casual duds, but of course, Benedict doesn't do casual the way the rest of us would. Donning a pinstripe blazer over a blue button-up and grey jeans, "The Hobbit" star looked dashing even though he was dressed down.

One place where Benny will always be dressed up however is at Madame Tussauds London, which unveiled their Benedict Cumberbatch wax figure this week.

The "Sherlock" star even visited his doppelganger, who wears a classic black-and-white suit.

"I'm excited to see the finished, perfect, waxy me, although slightly terrified," the Brit said in a statement. "The work is so detailed it's going to feel a little uncomfortable and surreal seeing what I really look like. I just wish it could take selfies and sign autographs."
