CelebrityWhy You Shouldn’t Sleep on Jonah Hill’s Style
The actor is on a style hot streak thanks to streetwear tees and high-fashion statement pieces.
A few years ago, Jonah Hill's name would not have been on a shortlist of A-list actors making a mark in the style game. But in 2016, Hill is not only one of the best actors in the biz ("Jonah, you're an Academy Award–winning actor!" as Danny McBride noted in This Is the End), but also one who seems to have his finger on the pulse of what cool kids are wearing in cities across the country.
In his everyday life, Hill basically is a living, breathing version of the second-floor T-shirt shop at New York's Dover Street Market. His favorite tees are from Generation Snapchat™–favored brands like Palace, Know Wave, Bianca Chandôn, Richardson Hardware, and Fucking Awesome, all of which are imprints with skateboarding roots. (And if you think Hill is just an Internet poseur, think again: When it comes to skateboarding, he actually knows his shit.) He also fancies himself a pair of rare sneakers, whether they're Palace x Reebok Classics, velvet Saint Laurents, or Yeezys.
Tees and sneakers are cool for strolling around the city, but as an actor Hill also has to make appearances on red carpets and late-night talk shows. When it comes to getting suited up or just cranking up his casual style, he's also recently sported some of the more hyped-up pieces on the market. A few months ago, he turned up to his sister's Neighbors 2 movie premiere in a floral Prada shirt worn under a snappy navy suit, and last week on Late Night with Seth Meyers wore one of Saint Laurent's most popular pieces, its Teddy varsity jacket (a different version of which he wore while Leo DiCaprio scared the crap out of him).
So it's no question Hill is an expert at scouring the Internet in search of whatever the it pieces of the moment are. That just makes it all the more impressive when he turns up on Jimmy Fallon or at the premiere for his new movie War Dogs in a crisp navy blue slim-lapel suit, light blue shirt, and modern patterned tie. It's fun to stunt on the kids, but every once in a while a grown man (and make no mistake, at 32 years old Hill is grown as hell) has to keep things conservative.
