We’ve got a Young (Airport Style) Pope.
There have been times when we’ve questioned, or at least thoughtfully pondered, Jude Law’s wardrobe. His dedication to giant pants and man cleavage has always been, to put it politely, notable. But as menswear gets wilder, not to mention baggier, the actor’s unique sense of style feels more dialed in than ever. Earlier this week Law was photographed arriving in Venice to film The New Pope (that would be the sequel to the breakout hit The Young Pope)—and dude was wearing a big mafia boss coat with a sock and shoe combo that can best be described as registered nurse-core. Three years ago a flex like this might have given us pause, but today we see it as a triumph in travel style. It’s personal. It’s comfortable. And it’s confident in the self-aware way.
Whether you’ve always seen Jude Law as a style icon or, like us, have wavered in your path towards devotion, all that matters is that we’re all here now, worshipping together. You could, by spending $2,303 on the seven items seen below and approximate this exact outfit for your own upcoming international flight. That wouldn’t be an insane choice for a long day of travel, and it might also be the flex of the year. But, really, what this should inspire you to do, what it inspires us to do, is to keep digging into and evolving whatever’s been going on in your own head and closet for the last…however long. People might not get it now, or even later. But that’s not how you become the Young (Airport Style) Pope.
