STYLE ADVICE

Stylish men who can do both

By Sam Higgins, 6 July 2016

For social-media-savvy millennials, the phrase 'get you a man who can do both' is probably a familiar one. While the meme has drifted solely towards satire, so we've decided to look at five men who actually can pull off a suit and tracksuit with ease.

A$AP Rocky

Not many can trump Lord Flacko when it comes style right now, regardless of what outfit he's thrown on. For example, any stigma previously connected to a full tracksuit goes out the window when Rocky goes the ultra-casual route, transforming a lazy, lounge-about look into a strong, coordinated sartorial statement.

Unlike many of the hip-hop elite, his style isn't centred solely around boxy, oversized fits – he prefers to keep things fitted and neat, whether on-stage in signature adidas comfies or in his finest formalwear for a Dior party.

David Beckham

Maybe saying that Becks can 'do both' is something of an understatement, as David can do it all. With his footballing past he's no stranger to a touch of athleisure, but these days he's crafted it into more of a refined look by keeping things tonal and stylish.

But when he's not promoting off-duty 'health goth' style, you'll probably find him raising eyebrows in an array of sharp suits. He's discovered that the tennis is one of the better stages to showcase his formal finery, such as the strong, tieless, tan two-piece he wore to Wimbledon 2015.

Shia LaBeouf

We've already anointed Shia king of normcore style, so its safe to say he's got his casualwear game locked down every time he tucks his joggers into his socks and heads out for a wander. But when he opens up an invitation to read 'smart' as the dress code, he doesn't falter – instead, he scrubs up, throws on formal gear and reveals a different side of LeBeouf.

Here he is at Cannes, freshly shaven, sunnies on, his smart navy double-up perfectly fitted for a sharp finish.

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz's laid-back approach to life seems to seep into his dress sense in both his on and off-duty looks. But that's not to say his outfits lack effort or thought. In fact, it's his carefully constructed nonchalance that makes every outfit even more impressive.

Whether he's in all-grey matching loungewear to stay comfy for the flight, or in a textured velvet blazer, cropped trousers and smart shoes at the AMAs, Wiz manages to deliver a perfect display of relaxed, street-ready steez.

Zayn Malik

Since going it alone, Zayn's not only found his feet expressing himself through his own music, but also through some serious stand-out style. It only takes a glance at the polar opposites of the style spectrum to show the breadth of his sartorial accomplishment.

On days off, his choice of sartorial weapon is a comfy tracksuit, colour-coordinated from head to toe to keep things slick and stylish. But when there's something in his diary for the evening, Zayn hops out of the comfies and into a bold, tonal statement of smartness.
