The Baby Driver actor’s Louis Vuitton x Supreme PJs are long flight saviors.
Famous guys who travel for a living, like Ansel Elgort, know that comfort matters. They also know that the halls of any international airport in 2017 are just as visible as any red carpet. Hence Ansel Elgort’s latest menswear combination: Louis Vuitton x Supreme pajama pants, a tan T-shirt, gleaming white sneakers, and a neon-orange leather backpack. Despite the outfit’s flash, it’s a practical uniform for Elgort’s flight from Beijing, China to Tokyo, Japan. The Baby Driver himself is in the middle of a worldwide tour for his film, meaning he spends most of his days on stage or on a red carpet in a suit. So when he’s off duty, he’s really off-duty. And because he’s a movie star and a DJ, Elgort’s version of really off-duty includes one of the most sought after grails of the summer.
At 23 years old with money to spend, Elgort is the prototypical VIP Supreme fan. Like Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith, Elgort’s most casual fits are catnip for the teens waiting in line. “Wearing hyped-out luxury pajama pants to the airport” is the kind of thing you can get away with—and we encourage—if you’re a movie star.
But for regular guys, PJs in public evoke the flannel pajamas favored by bros on college campuses, and we don’t have to explain why you should skip those. If you’re a little confused about Elgort’s choice, let us explain: the shiny navy pants with a barely visible logo pattern are appropriate because they look and fit just like the coolest, swishiest loose-fitting trousers we’re seeing from fashion brands right now. So if you couldn’t get your hands on any LV x Supreme, and you don’t own the kind of PJs you want to wear out of the house, don’t sweat it. You can copy Elgort’s look with any of these three pants:
