Welcome to Heat Check>>>P, a (semi)regular dose of much-needed style inspiration culled from the very best celebrity fit pics around.
Pay careful attention here, folks. We might be witnessing the start of something special. Earlier this week, Bradley Cooper was spotted walking around NYC with his daughter in the personification of what we dubbed Casual Dad Style (think jaunty striped joggers mixed and matched with a rugged peacoat and sturdy Red Wing boots). He looked great.
That wasn’t his only head-turning performance of the week, though. Before he put the other dads in the drop-off line to shame, the actor/director was snapped out and about on the streets of New York in a jacket from Gucci’s recent collaboration with The North Face (and the same pair of striped joggers). Lo and behold, he once again looked great.
Of course, Cooper’s no stranger to the small comforts of wearing what you love, and wearing it often, no matter how many people see you in it. For those of you dutifully following along at home, you’ll recall that way back in March he wore the same Madewell shirt jacket for the better part of a week. And this isn’t his first foray into the world of capital-F fashion, either. He wore Gucci religiously doing press for A Star is Born throughout 2018, and has been known to get off many a red carpet fit in his day. (Remember red carpets?!)
But this type of dressing calls for another level of dedication entirely. Cooper’s got the hot hand, and for everyone’s sake, we hope designers keep feeding him the rock until he misses. Because sure, you might typically associate the kind of sold-out gear Cooper is rocking here with hypebeasts half his age, but the actor’s just-walking-around fit is proof that a tremendous flex is a tremendous flex, no matter how many dependents you claim on your tax return.

Kangols off to you, Mr. Cooper. (FWIW, we still don’t really understand the hat.)
