Benedict Cumberbatch In A Top Hat And Tails Makes Our Hearts Explode


That's the noise of a million Cumber Collective hearts exploding thanks to a new Benedict Cumberbatch photo.

The "Sherlock" star is the cover star of the February 2014 issue of Esquire Malaysia and boy is looking good thanks to a classic English ensemble.

Benedict sports a top hat (which he tips off to the reader), a bow tie, a vest and tails, proving yet again that old-school clothes never go out of style.

Although we've never seen him wear tails on the red carpet, "The Hobbit" star (who does a mean Smaug) is no stranger to dressing up in formalwear.

Not only has the 37-year-old made velvet hot again but he also schooled us in how to dance in da club while wearing black tie.

Love ya, Benedict!
