It’s been a busy week for Brad Pitt, who has walked at least four carpets in the past five days during the European leg of the press tour for his film ‘Bullet Train’. But in the process of promoting the upcoming action-comedy, the 58-year-old actor has unwittingly promoted a new summer uniform, and it’s one we can all embrace: the linen suit.
If anyone can convince anyone to wear a two-piece suit amid unprecedented heat waves, it’s Pitt, who wore a different variation of the same linen ensemble, custom-made by designer Haans Nicholas Mott, for this week’s packed list of press events. Each outfit is comprised of a linen jacket, drawstring pants, and loose-fitting tee (in various spring hues: salmon pink, khaki, slate gray), along with her signature aviator sunglasses and of white slip-on sneakers.
But Pitt’s most memorable outfit, photos of which have been making the rounds on social media, strayed from what quickly became a uniform for the Oscar-winning actor. When he arrived in Berlin for the German premiere, he showed up wearing a skirt together, making an already airy summer outfit look even airier. The mud-brown ensemble consisted of a knee-length skirt (short enough to give a rare glimpse of her rhinoceros tattoo), a light jacket, and a pink shirt.
In short, the famous actor turned linen influencer may have officially cracked the code for summer’s biggest clothing dilemma. Below, check out the best sheets to wear in the heat this summer — for your next trip to the Hamptons or your next al fresco meal.
