Mr LaBeouf can appear unshowered in old sweatpants and Crocs, for instance, and be widely regaled for it. His unhinged outfits led Highsnobiety to deify him as a “normcore fashion god” and Garage to anoint him “the king of fashion”. He wears Ugg boots, stained logo T-shirts, and sneakers that look as though he’s been at them with a pack of felt tips. How excruciatingly cool, to favour comfort above all else and truly not give a toss about what you wear! (Nothing is more stylish than being flagrantly unfashionable, you know.) He is deeply consistent with his personal style, even if on paper it sounds like he is a sartorial train wreck.
In April, Mr Keanu Reeves was spotted wearing (deep breath): a comfortably tailored grey suit, grey shirt and grey tie, a bright-red trucker hat, a grey and red scarf, and Timberland-esque hiking boots (this is known as mixing “classy with casual” according to the Daily Mail). Mr Reeves might wear a SAINT LAURENT suit on the red carpet and not garner nearly as much attention for his clothes as he will for sipping watermelon juice while wearing a black hoodie and that aforementioned trucker – barefoot, to boot – on set. This is complex stuff.
