Michael B. Jordan has the perfect summer jacket
Michael B. Jordan has enjoyed a good few years.
Following the success of Black Panther, the Killmonger actor has transcended typical Hollywood style. Instead of a classic tux, we got Louis Vuitton harnesses; as other guys are still learning what looks good, the actor already knows - and that's extended to the off-duty, too.
At his third annual LA fundraiser for lupus research, MBJAM, the 32-year-old clinched the perfect jacket for summer. Which, we hear you cry, is somewhat paradoxical: one does not need an overlayer in the times of extreme global warming. But that's a misconception. The right sort of jacket can elevate a summer look.
Which is why Jordan went for a coach jacket shape, from Coach, in a fabric best-loved by getaway drivers in Ryan Gosling films. It's bright. It's bold. But, most importantly, it's light enough to eschew the risk of heat exhaustion: this is the sort of jacket you can throw over your weekend civvies to cast the illusion that you've actually made an effort.
Pair that with monochromes, and it's a foolproof formula that'll stand apart from the tiki cookie cutter shirts owned by every single one of your friends. Yes, it might not bode well when Mother Earth's central heating has broken.
But, providing you reserve it for an evening, here's an ideal jacket for the long, hot, summer.
