Brad Pitt Makes a Very Convincing Case for the Linen Suit During ‘Bullet Train’ Press Tour

·3-min read

It’s been a busy week for Brad Pitt, who has walked at least four carpets in the past five days while on the European leg of the press tour for his movie “Bullet Train.” But in the process of promoting the upcoming action-comedy, the 58-year-old actor has unwittingly promoted a new summer uniform, and it’s one we can all get behind: the linen suit.

If anyone can convince someone to wear a two-piece suit amid unprecedented heat waves it’s Pitt, who wore a different variation of the same linen ensemble, custom-made by the designer Haans Nicholas Mott, for this week’s packed slate of press events. Each outfit is comprised of a linen jacket, drawstring pants and slouchy tee (in different springtime hues: pink-salmon, khaki, slate gray), alongside his signature aviator sunglasses and white slip-on sneaks.

But Pitt’s most memorable outfit, photos of which aptly made its rounds on social media, deviated from what has quickly become a uniform for the Oscar winner. When he arrived in Berlin for the German premiere, he showed up in a linen skirt set, making an already-breezy summer outfit even breezier. The entire mud-brown ensemble consisted of a knee-length skirt (short enough to give a rare glimpse at his rhinoceros tattoo), a lightweight jacket and pink button-down.

In short, the acclaimed actor-turned-linen-influencer might’ve officially cracked the code for summer’s biggest sartorial dilemma. Below, check out the best linens to wear in the heat this summer — for your next Hamptons trip or al fresco meal.
