The Esquire style files: How to pull off a Travis Scott big-fit
Travis La Flame Scott AKA Jacques Berman Webster II knows a thing or two when it comes to a serious tailoring-flex or streetwear slam-dunk, but how can us mere civilians pull off the fashion of bona fide rap royalty? Well that’s where we come in. From oversized, graphic tees to icy-cold accessories, we’re talking you through the ways to reach the upper echelon of immaculate dressing, a la Travis' threads.
UPS Uniform Update
If red and green should never be seen, black and brown’s a usual style thumbs-down, however apply this generally dubious colour combination to a seriously slick silhouette with a bonus edition of texture clashing fabrics and you have yourself a tailoring triumph.
Hit Em Up
While Travis is heralded for his a la mode interpretation of rap music genre, this particular fit harks back to a Tupac Shakur era of rap star apparel. Loose fit from tee to toe, the tawny quilted vest and relaxed proportions are a masterclass in baggy layering.
Boys School Balance
How do you pull off a crest emblazoned blazer and white-shirt combo more traditionally seen on the lawns of Eton while still maintaining your tough-guy guise? Iced out accessories, and plenty of them. Deftly integrating prep-school virtue with a streetwear-sensibility, Travis has the stage-school balance nailed.
In one of Travis’ more accessible flexes, he reps his hometown cougars for a major court side moment. Upgrading a basic jeans and shirt combination by playing with oversized proportions and drip aplenty takes this ensemble straight to the rack.
Accessories Go Off
The devils in the detail with this relaxed take on a BDE stage outfit. Popper detail and colour blocking panels give the humble track pant an urban update, while up top a bandana neck-tie and Astroworld headwear provides just the right amount of detail-centric nonchalance – no cap. Outfit finishing pointers that you absolutely should try at home.
