Brad Pitt has wooed the world his entire life with his great looks, brilliant acting and cool acting. Pitt is not only an amazing actor, but a prominent style icon. However, as the actor is getting old, he is starting to realize that comfort is the only styling he wants.
Brad Pitt, who will turn 58 this year in December, says that he has ‘no style’ as he’s ‘older’ and ‘crankier.’ In an interview with Esquire, Brad opened up how his styling and preferences have changed as he is aging.
The Fight Club star said, “You get older, you get crankier, and comfort becomes more important. I think it’s as simple as that…” Pitt, who is popularly known to be the mist stylist individual on red carpets stated “If I have a style, it’s no style.” Rather, the 57-year-old actor is now more into simple colors and minimalist looks.
“I like monochrome, without it being a uniform … I like simplicity,” he explained. “I like the details in the stitching, the way it feels. If anything, that’s the only divining rod I have,” Pitt explained.
The Oscar winner does not like to follow or go as per the trends. He rather likes to invest in luxurious materials over flashy or trendy pieces, Moreover, talking about his style, Pitt said with the passing time, his style is “lead by comfort.”
Sharing his disliking towards new trends, Pitt told, “I like the feel of a Leica camera or the way a watch feels. I don’t want to look ostentatious, but if you come close, you notice. I like how the lining feels,” he continued. “It’s those details that are important to me. It’s too exhausting to follow trends. And I despise billboards; I just don’t want to be billboard.”
Moreover, the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood star stated that it’s the quality that matters for him and not any trend or style. He also mentioned one of his favorite garments, which is a Loro Piani jacket. According to Pitt, he wish to be able to wear the same jacket for the next three decades. It is the same jacket that Brad wears in the new ad commercial for De’Longhi, an Italian coffee brand, which he is a brand ambassador of.
Hinting on the importance of quality of the jacket which lasts, Pitt told Esquire, “It’s cashmere, and if I make it to 86, I’ll be wearing it with moth holes… It’s expensive, but if I’m able to wear it for 30 years, it won’t be in the long run. It’s so simple, so sleek. To me, it’s perfect.”
Other than his style and looks, Brad also shone a light on the ad campaign by De’Longhi while talking to PEOPLE. Brad himself being a coffee lover and a sucker for good coffee, said, “I wanted to work with De’Longhi because I appreciated their approach for the campaign—they have confidence in their product and want to celebrate the artistry of their Italian heritage without overdoing it.”
Pitt, who is also an avid design and architecture enthusiast, said, “De’Longhi’s attention to detail makes me appreciate the brand even more. That sort of thoughtfulness is a distinctive value of Italian design—how you design something for the people who are going to experience it: certain details that might not be immediately obvious, but in the end have a profound effect on you and your life.”
This statement certainly shows that small details and quality matters for the actor, be it his style, clothes, coffee or any project.
