Will Poulter Used To Try To Imitate Ross Geller’s Friends Style Growing Up, Now He’s Interested In Robert Pattinson

One such brand is Thom Browne, the American luxury label known for its chalk-striped suits, white, red and blue labels and playful accessories, such as sausage-dog shaped leather shoulder bags. Hours after Poulter went online, he attended the 21-year-old brand’s fall/winter runway show, held at the Javits Center in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. “There’s something about the brand that I love,” says Poulter. “As I got older I learned to take more risks, but I always want to strike a balance between staying true to myself and looking like I’m in a suit. Thom Browne has perfected that balance and I still feel comfortable in clothes, even if they are sometimes a little more discreet.

For the show, which was also attended by Jon Batiste and Teyana Taylor, Poulter worked with Thom Browne’s team to create an outfit. The actor opted for a pair of the brand’s signature striped pants, which he said suit his lithe figure perfectly, a navy shirt with gold buttons, a knitted polo shirt and a puffy cream overcoat. “It embodies what I love about Thom Browne – it’s fully wearable and I feel totally comfortable, but I don’t feel like an average guy walking down the street. There are variations in texture and a color scheme, and of course everything is so well done.

Although Browne’s AW/22 outing wasn’t her first show (it’s her third time on the Browne FROW), Poulter’s relationship with fashion has only just begun. “I would love to get to a point where I have as good and recognized a style as someone like Robert Pattinson, to be honest,” he reveals. “I would love to too and I can probably only dream of collaborating with a brand on a collection. I’m actually a huge sneaker fan – I must have figured I won’t spend any money on Flight Club today – but a sneaker collaboration would be pretty cool to do. I love Nike and Jordan – I have the rare Virgil Off-White Nikes and a pair of Jordan 6 Infrared, which are my favourites. So yeah, give me a sneaker collab!

Watch this place.
