TIFF 2011 Roundup: the five o’clock shadow was this year’s hottest accessory for men

We noticed something prickly growing on the chins of many A-list men at TIFF this year (no, not a beard—we’ve covered that already). It seems that amidst the many open collars and untucked shirts, there was a celebrity trend in-the-making: scruff so barely there it could have been accidental—or due to laziness. We think that on Jon Hamm, Ryan Gosling, Gerard Butler, Jason Statham, Robert De Niro and Brian Austin Green, the look was decent, but on Philip Seymour Hoffman, Seth Rogen and Brad Pitt, it doesn’t look quite so manly—presumably, the intention—but rather uncomfortably itchy. Vote for your favourite five o’clock shadow after the jump.
