OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #194
By Josh Woodfin, 22 August 2014
We're used to seeing Jason Statham in one of two looks. The first is an immaculately tailored suit that fits his stacked body like the proverbial glove. And the other usually involves some kind of high-calibre rifle, throwing knives, military webbing, combat trousers and a beret, as befits his role as the excellently named mercenary Lee Christmas in The Expendables 1, 2 and 3. What you rarely see is Le Stath in his civvies.
So when we spotted this snap of him looking every bit the king of casual cool, we were pleased as punch. The tinted aviators are the epitome of movie star chic, while the simple black T-shirt is as cool and understated as you'd imagine. Next up comes his slim-fit navy chinos and a pair of old-school white kicks.
But the real winner is the gunmetal (RAARGHH! 'Gun metal'!) grey field jacket from Stone Island. A favourite among everyone from football casuals to techy design geeks, the Italian brand deals in classics with a masculine, modern twist. You can get a similar look with a simpler field jacket, featuring all those wonderful pockets to lose your keys in.
