Fit fire: ????

 

Why it’s working: With a zip code for Topanga, Los Angeles, across his chest, Aymeric Laporte’s fit feels fresh. He’s clutching a Louis Vuitton pouch, an iPhone and a charger with an international plug, and his unstructured knit jacket and white shorts are equally distressed. This look feels chic.

Why it's working: I adore this look. The collarless button-up has a special side pocket, the gold-rimmed frames add a touch of sparkle and the black cargo pants are trendy but classic. Our second look with knit sneakers, and it just feels so right.

Fire fit: ???

 

Why it’s working: While the color coordination of the red tee, the red Off-White hangtag, the red Gucci stripe and red sneakers in his hand feels a little like he’s trying too hard, this guy’s swag and tattoos pull it together.

Why it’s working: OK, what is in each of these guys’ little diddy bags? Someone explain. Here, Rodri carries a basic black bag and three pairs of shoes. Just in case? The white Air Force 1s on his feet are crispy and his warm smile is endearing.

Fit fire: ?????

 

Why it’s working: Double whammy. These two are quite the duo. Both Danilo and Bravo have taken a minimal approach with top-notch grooming. They’re carrying matching Mercedes-Benz keys and passports, Danilo has a chic Dopp kit and the entire situation feels so effortlessly cool. This is athleisure at its best.

Why it’s working: How timely is Adarabioyo’s 2019 NBA champions tee? The flaming raptor is an exciting flame in this fit, complete with black diddy bag and Jordan Brand sneakers. He looks good. 

 

Now, who can solve the mystery of the luxury soccer Dopp kit?
