After tackling Yosemite National Park’s 3,000-foot El Cap, in under four hours without ropes, pioneering rock-climber Alex Honnold gained widespread notoriety. At the 2019 Academy Awards, the film that documents Honnold’s experience, Free Solo, won the best documentary Oscar. And Honnold sported a first-ever The North Face custom tuxedo. The slim fit, one-button, single-breasted suit was the vision of designer Mona Al-Shaalan and tailored Devon Scott, a collaborator on the project. Its goal was to promote the brand’s The Black Series—and, of course, make Honnold look good. It succeeded at both. Read more about Honnold and see photos of the wool tuxedo at Gear Patrol.
