Sebastian Stan is like a red carpet player.
He could appear at a movie premiere in a baggy Hermès suit with a turtleneck and a new fade. He will probably attend the American-Gold-Gold-themed Met Gala Pierpaolo Piccioli from head to toe in pink. Or he could show up to the Disney Open IP conference in a pair of pleated khaki pants, a pastel pink shirt, and a sporty bomber jacket — which, incidentally, is exactly what English teachers wear. my wonderful high school, who let us read Joseph Conrad’s Dark heart and then watch Francis Ford Coppola’s Doomsday right now used to wear.
(All of the above, by the way, are the work of Stan’s stylist, Michael Fisher.)
Stan, who plays Bucky Barnes in Captain America corner of the Disney-owned Marvel Cinematic Universe, attended Expo D23 in Anaheim over the weekend, where he was joined on stage by his franchise colleagues David Harbor and Wyatt Russell, both dressed as celebrities would wear today (blue suit tones). And while Stan’s outfit looks a bit manageable on the surface, it’s actually a fully-fledged designer outfit from the New York-based Brand Commission, the maker of classic outfits. carefully furnished with whimsical, even sometimes subtle, details.
Jin Kay, one half of the designer duo behind the Commission, about Stan’s outfits, spoke by phone earlier this week. (When the brand started making menswear last year, Kay and her co-designer, Dylan Cao, drew inspiration from 1970s Japanese corporate uniforms and workwear, hence the related at least in part to what real-life dads usually wear.) Kay agreed, Stan’s look turning into “hot dad”.
What distinguishes the luxury here are the specific features: a hint of feathers protruding from an exclusive SSENSE cotton bomber jacket, giant carpenter-style pockets and loops hidden on the back of pleated trousers. Usually, in photos for lookbooks and e-comm platforms, Commission pieces are styled like most contemporary brands do – thin and oversized, polished to the point. Follow unisex poplin uniform shirt Stan wears it, be it boxy the way a skater boy is, or fitted the way his dad (or English teacher). And you have it – the duality of man.
