Channing Tatum tends to look effortlessly cool whatever he's wearing.

And treading the halls of Los Angeles International Airport he showed every man how to go casual pre-flight without going full “I don’t care, I want to be comfortable” mode, à la Justin Bieber.

So what's he done? Well, he's demonstrated the grown-up way to do cosy, which has been achieved with some easy layering hacks. Sporting a Fendi hoodie and nylon slacks, he could have looked like he'd just stepped out of the gym. However, it’s thanks to the simple touch of wearing an ankle-skimming overcoat that, in essence, has elevated his undergarments.

And it's something that you really need to get on top of on your next jaunt. Rather than do a JB and go for rolled-up jogging bottoms and a short-sleeved hoodie (these, FYI, should never be worn), if you plan to go for a more comfortable look then follow Tatum’s approach. Sure, Jeff Goldblum’s recent skinny-jeans-and-leather-jacket airport attire was seriously put together, but Tatum bridges the gap between casual and smart with gusto.

All thanks to the easy move of simply chucking on an overcoat.
