Jason Statham for GQ

Photobucket

Jason Statham has never been considered a “fashion icon” of our time. If you look at his outfits, there’s not a lot of creativity or out-of-the-box approaches to his fashion sense. On the other hand, you would be hard-pressed to find Statham poorly dressed. What he lacks in experimentation, he makes up for in deep understanding of the basics of fit. His rule of thumb: wear clothes that fit you. That means if you’re at a store and you see a coat you like in a size 40 and you’re a size 38, the coat does not fit you. We encourage that you try the coat on, of course, just in case the numbers are off, but chances are it won’t look good if the numbers are true.

He’s always wearing that pocket square correctly. Nothing fancy, just basics to perfection.

In the Transporter 2, he pulls out a new crisp shirt from the trunk of his car after his shirt gets bloodstained from killing bad guys. Just like Don Draper does in Mad Men. We should be taking notes.

Wow at Statham pulling this off. Personally, I don’t like the jeans with a coat trend because it is so rarely done well. It is reminiscent of bouchedags, over-the-hill dads, and yuppies who make money, but don’t know what to do with it. I think Usher was the one who really popularized it for my generation, which was a bad thing, because everyone thought they could wear jeans with a coat and think it’s stylish without being a multi-million platinum selling artist. I’m sure I’ve done it once or twice but I don’t like to do it often.

    Jason Stratham is very hot haha!
    Love him in Transporter 1 and 2. Both are such a nice movie.
    But the sentence ”wear clothes that fit you.”
    nooo! It just has to suits you. A size 40 coat can fit wonderfull if you have a size 38 and sometimes even 36 (:
    I sometimes wear size 40. And I have size 36/38. And it still fits great.
    (haha sorry for talking to much)
    But the pictures are great!
