OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #471
By Gavin Jewkes, 29 May 2015
We’re only halfway through 2015, but it’s already shaping up to be Jason Statham’s year. He’s starred in global smash Furious 7, which became the fastest (and most furious) film to hit the $1 billion mark at the box office and has just bought a sprawling Beverly Hills mansion with his enviably gorgeous girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. And now we’re awarding him our coveted outfit of the day title – arguably the cherry on top of his tooth-achingly sweet cake.
Marching through LAX airport this week, Statham wore a pared back, simple outfit caught somewhere between street luxe and smartwear. His black chinos are a strong alternative to jeans and a sharper option than structured joggers, and look terrific worn with classic slip-on plims and a plain white T-shirt.
The real scene-stealer here, however, is Statham’s military-inspired bomber jacket. Artfully simple in cut and constructed from lightweight materials, its clean, athletic shape keeps it versatile and secures its position as the ideal light layer for summer.
