It’s long been known that method acting is a good way of getting to know your role – act the part in your day-to-day life and you’re good to go. We can therefore only assume that Brad Pitt has a secret role as the new Indian Jones, because he’s been getting into the wardrobe of someone very different from Cliff Booth.
Attending the Mexican premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Pitt, who proved once again that age is but a number (just take a look at that glowing complexion), dressed like Dr Henry Walton Jones himself. And, sure, while there may be a new Indiana Jones film currently in production, we can assure you that Pitt isn’t replacing Harrison Ford as the leading man.
However, in dressing in this safari-ready get-up, which consisted of dusty desert boots, a sand-hued open suit, tan polo shirt (no tie for him again here) and a hessian hat, Pitt has managed to nail one of the season’s big trends: heaps of camel. We’ve already seen Michael B Jordan do all-camel everything (in head-to-toe Burbs) and it’s found its place on the runway – every brand is at it, from Lacoste, Jil Sander and Brunello Cucinelli (where you’ll find the sandiest of hues) all the way the to muddy tones at Kent & Curwen.
Dressing like a desert explorer is an easy way to have a mega #menswear moment and it’s an easy colour to slip into any wardrobe. The easiest way to do it? Throw on a camel jumper or cardigan, to wear with short shorts for the rest of August, before layering under a trench for an undoubtedly rainy autumn. Before you embark on an archeological dig to find it, we’ve found the best camel-hued knitwear out there for you right now...
