You already knew George Clooney had it made: Beautiful wife, jetsetting lifestyle, face that only improves with age. But here’s how you know he’s got it better than at least half of Hollywood: While every actress in L.A. was trying on (and dieting for) dozens of gowns, Clooney just reached into his closet for his Golden Globes outfit. And he pulled out his wedding tux.

The actor, who took home the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, told the press room he was recycling the look from his September nuptials, after praising his new bride on stage during his acceptance speech. “Amal, whatever alchemy brought us together, I couldn’t be prouder to be your husband,” he said. (See what she wore here!)
But really, can you blame him for wanting to give the suit another outing, considering it was a made-to-measure piece with his name specially stitched into the label, and created by Mr. Giorgio Armani himself? The suit is an ultra-fine wool/cashmere blend, and, like at his wedding, he paired it with a white shirt, black bow tie and oxfords in smooth, brushed black leather.
Clooney has long been a proponent of keeping things simple in the wardrobe department. “I have one tux. Just one,” Clooney told PEOPLE when he was named Sexiest Man Alive in 2006. “It’s a single-button [Armani]. There’s only one mistake guys can make, and that is to try to do anything fancy. Just put on a tux. Just put a tie on, put a plain shirt on, don’t wear a bolo tie, and don’t wear a cummerbund that’s crazy.”
