Outfit of the day #494

We know that A$AP Rocky looks good at all times – there's a reason he's been bestowed with the title Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye. But what really excites us is when he steps out of his monochrome, couture-meets-streetwear comfort zone and into something a bit surprising (but still ace).
That was the case on Friday, when A$AP turned up at the Moschino men's fashion show at Pitti Uomo in Florence rocking full-on grunge revival. Now, we suspect he copped his retro threads at one of those high-end vintage stores – one where everything is carefully curated and they even wash it all first so it doesn't smell fusty, rather than the jumble sale a true grunge purist would favour – but everything else was present and correct.
Super shredded and faded blue jeans, a comfy-looking checked lumberjack shirt (a versatile outer layer now we're approaching 'no jacket' days) plus a fun old hip-hop tee in black are the basics of this early 90s uniform. Rocky then switched up the standard Chuck Taylors for a fresh white pair of Stan Smiths for a front row-ready final touch. Nailed it again.
