Robert Pattinson can wear the heck out of anything you throw at him. The last time we saw R-Patz on magazine stands (in the international row), he was splattered with paint from head to duck lips for the French mag Première and wearing a futuristic Hawaiian top. Now he’s all cleaned up on the September cover of Esquire UK looking better than ever.
We had almost forgotten how good R-Patz looks in a suit—JK. That’s not something you just forget. On the cover, the actor went for a classic look with a black Dior Homme suit and tie and a simple white shirt, which is a minimalist step away from the colored suits he’s been championing over the years.
For the spread, Rob went a little more casual, confirming what we already knew: He possesses the unique ability to wear a suit as effortlessly as a T-shirt and jeans. Rob dressed down with a double-breasted coat and jogging pants by Gucci that Kanye would definitely approve of.
He also tried on a deconstructed T-shirt by James Perse, which is a step up from the kinds of T-shirts he wears when he’s not being photographed. When the writer of the cover story met R-Patz, his tee was falling apart: “I remember he showed up with a T-shirt that flapped open at the side and he hadn’t noticed—it wasn’t a fashion thing, the stitching had just gone,” he wrote. I’m pretty sure that if images of R-Patz in his tattered tee circulated, the look would become an overnight trend. Hint, hint.
