Welcome to Heat Check, a (semi)regular dose of much-needed style inspiration culled from the very best celebrity fit pics around.
Man, the only time I can remember seriously thinking about Jacob Elordi before this was when I was struggling to make it through The Kissing Booth way back in the Mesozoic Era (by which, of course, I mean 2018). Dog, your movie was objectively terrible. I’m sorry. I couldn’t finish it. What is a “kissing booth”?!?! I may never know. No judgement, though. We all got to secure the bag somehow. (Hell, I secure mine by writing about people like you. Life’s crazy sometimes, isn’t it?)
All that’s to say, I feel like we got off on the wrong foot. You’re more than your poorly-written, heavily-cliched character and I sincerely apologize for dismissing you as another cleft-chinned himbo right off the bat. Mea culpa, mea culpa. Glad to see you’re back out there, guy. How you living these days?
If the way you’re dressing is any indication, I’d say pretty fucking well. Turns out, the Australian thespian and dude she told you not worry about has been busy racking up an impressive list of credits, chief among ’em a particularly audacious run of outfits gotten off over the course of, like, three weeks, tops. In September alone, the strong-jawed actor and rumored Kaia Gerber beau stepped out in not one, not two, but three (count ’em, three!) variations on what’s starting to look like a signature fit, putting on a masterclass in ideal inseam length in the process. TikTok, eat your heart out.
Throughout the last month, Elordi’s been snapped modeling a recognizable mix of the so-louche-it’s-luxe leisurewear that’s become a (the?) defining aesthetic of our extremely-online times, and man, he looks good. With a trusty baseball cap pulled low over his eyes, a boxy crewneck up top, and some perfectly-cut athletic shorts—in one case, a pair of Patagonia’s beloved Baggies—down below, Elordi successfully pulls off the very rare hat trick of A1 fits. (Not to mention the mask firmly affixed to his face—we stan a CDC-adherent king!) It’s simple, no-frills dressing at its best, and it’s exactly what you should be wearing if the temperature ever cracks 75 degrees again this season.
The only thing I’d consider switching out (and really, I’m nit-picking) are the sneakers, and the fact that Elordi makes them look as good as they do here is a testament to the level he’s operating on right now. (Swap out the Geese for a pair of absolutely thrashed Old Skools and—voila!—you got yourself a pretty flawless fit.)
Together with Gerber, Elordi and his maybe-belle are bronzed, long-legged beauties gracefully loping around downtown NYC like twin gazelles roaming the African savanna. Sheesh, man. *Breathes in deeply* I just love nature. It’s all so goddamn scenic I could actually cry.
