Michael B. Jordan has been on a trend quest—and whereas his journey is just not fairly of the identical caliber as, say, traversing Center Earth to destroy an omnipotent ring, it has yielded another fairly spectacular equipment. Since he started working with stylist Jason Bolden two years in the past, MBJ’s gone full-force towards ultra-sleek, classic-leading-man silhouettes, match with high-waisted trousers, crisp camp shirts, polished overcoats, and loafers and in favor of manufacturers like Burberry, Prada, and Valentino. (Chatting with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this 12 months, Bolden recalled a time when Jordan needed “to create a glance impressed by one which Mr. Sidney Poitier wore and the way he made informal dressing so inspiring,” which resulted Jordan hitting Nobu Malibu at some point final summer time in a Hawaiian Saint Laurent shirt just like the one Poitier wore in Lilies of the Discipline.)
And in the event you’ve discovered your self on a quest for “timeless luxurious” within the 12 months 2022, you possibly can solely journey up to now earlier than you end up reaching for the types of labels favored by the monied ladies of the Higher East Aspect.
On Tuesday evening, MBJ graced the pink carpet for Amazon’s juggernaut Lord of the Rings prequel sequence, The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Energy, in a really svelte Chanel knit vest tucked right into a pair of pleated pants from The Row (the Olsens are makers of nice menswear), paired with a pair of white penny loafers. Whereas Jordan can pull off a sleeveless vest higher than most, it’s arguably extra spectacular that he can swing an outfit that would take him from a Hollywood premiere by evening and onto lunch at JG Melon adopted by a stroll round Guggenheim the subsequent day.
And perhaps he’d hop downtown after—he’s a Bode man, too.
