They boys are back in town, y’all! The One Direction machine never stops: after attending the premiere of their movie, This Is Us, a mere three days ago, the group is back in NYC to attend the American movie premiere, perform on the Today Show, and present an award at the VMAs, NBD. Seems like a relaxing vacay to New York, JK!

This morning, the boys appeared on the Today Show, and the official One Direction Instagram posted a few pics that gave us some insight into the boys’ backstage looks (no shirtless Harry this time, womp) versus what they actually wear onto the stage. The stage, BTW, was surrounded by 18,000 screaming fans. Swag on you, Directioners, swag on you.

In one of the behind-the-scenes pics posted early this morning, Liam and Louis are chillin’ backstage in what they wear for the performance, but Harry is in a white button-down and black dress pants. Uh, Harry, did you not get the casual look memo? In another pic, onstage at soundcheck, we see Niall in a letterman-esque jacket (we’re sensing an emerging trend here), paired with a Chicago Bulls hat; Zayn is in black acid-wash jeans and a gray hoodie, and Liam has reprised his Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet look, but swapped out the leather jacket for a sweatshirt.

In a picture posted a little bit later, once the guys were on stage, Harry def realized they were going for a casual look, and he changed into a plaid shirt, jeans, and his trusty boots. Liam changed into his Teen Choice Awards performance look, though with a different plaid shirt tied around his waist. Zayn borrowed Liam’s This Is Us premiere leather jacket and swapped out one pair of acid wash jeans for a lighter pair. Niall ditched the jacket to reveal a shirt with sleeves that bear a close resemblance to tube socks, and Louis displayed his love for The Who, in a vintage baseball tee.

These looks have given us a lot to consider re: what these fellas will be wearing on Sunday to the VMAs. Will Liam bring out his TCA looks again? Will Harry ditch those boots (haha, v. unlikely!)? Will Niall debut a new letterman jacket? Be sure to watch the VMAs on Sunday, starting at 6 PM, to see how many looks the 1D fellas bring to Brooklyn.
