OUTFIT OF THE DAY
#1,176 R-PATZ'S BLAZER OF GLORY
By Matt Glazebrook, 18 May 2017
Robert Pattinson kindly took time out from his birthday celebrations this week to deliver a little lesson he calls ’advanced-level signature style’.
When you’re rolling with a strong standard look, the addition of a distinctive new piece can throw up a few issues. The actor's luxe 70s brown cord blazer doesn’t immediately scream his usual skater-scandi-minimal vibe – we’re going to assume it was a birthday pressie from Twigs (awkward) – but, style pro he is, he took the clothing curveball and smashed it out the park.
Rather than re-shape his go-to getup to accommodate the lush, retro-flavoured interloper, Pattinson simply eased it into his usual low-key look, pairing it with straight-leg navy chinos, a navy button-down, a navy cap and a white T-shirt. His favourite orange-striped adidas kicks added a touch of tonal consistency to tie things together and, just like that, the new jacket looked liked it’d been part of the R-Patz kit for years.
