Bradley Cooper's latest style obsession is remarkably affordable (and easy to wear)
You ever cop a piece so fucking fire you have no choice but to rock it repeatedly, regardless of who's seen you in it or how many times you've worn it? I'm not talking some standard pair of black pants that, as a man, you can get way with wearing every day for the rest of your life without a single person batting an eye. (FWIW, contemporary double standards are still all types of fucked: Men, at the very least step up your game in solidarity!)
I'm all for cutting back, but the main problem with the age old adage "buy less, buy better" is that maintaining a modicum of self-control is crucial to the entire endeavor. How am I supposed to buy better when I can't seem to buy less? It's the gordian knot of shopping dilemmas (and if anyone knows where to cop one of those, I could probably be convinced to buy an artisanally made version of that guy, too).
If you've been struggling recently to cut back on gratuitous purchases, let Bradley Cooper serve as your spring style inspiration. The Oscar nominee has been wearing one particular piece over and over again for the last few weeks, and I'm not mad at it in the slightest. I stan a man who's not afraid to make a commitment when it comes to getting dressed. Cooper's latest style swerve comes in the form of a seasonally appropriate (and pretty affordable) quilted indigo shirt from Madewell's men's collection (seen here with a pair of Maison Margiela "Replica" sneakers, worn three ways).
The lightweight layer boasts western-inspired snap buttons and comes in a deep blue color way that's sure to brighten up any outfit, especially when you pair it with those black pants you know you're still going to wear at least three times a week even after my PSA.
Stars: They're just like us!
