Damn, Timmy. He wore a head-to-toe Haider Ackermann Fall 2017 look, keeping the rubberneckers occupied with a Berluti purple suede leather jacket and Berluti black boots. Despite his aversion to working with a stylist, it’s difficult to believe that Chalamet himself was the mastermind behind this style upgrade.
Since then, he's rocked a Rolodex of name brands. His favorites are Calvin Klein 205 W39 NYC, Berluti and Haider Ackermann. He also loves a fun cap.
The Toronto International Film Festival just wrapped and bequeathed us with new Chala-content. And with a mix of casual and red carpet get-ups, it has become clear that Chalamet has wrested the crown away from Hill as our new style king. In fact, a fairly new but under-the-radar account has sprung up to identify all of his sartorial moves. Enter @readytimmywear (a play on ready-to-wear), which has been doing Gawd’s werk uncovering which brands Chalamet has christened as worth buying.
From the purple suede jacket onward, the Instagram account RTW (@readytimmywear) has kept Chalamet's outfit choices locked, stocked and barrelled.
"He's close with Haider Ackermann, so when Ackermann was the creative director of Berluti, Timothée often wore Berluti," RTW told ONE37pm. "Now that Haider Ackermann is not with Berluti anymore, he dresses Timothée with items from his namesake brand, Haider Ackermann. ... There's a tendency for Timothée to wear certain brands for several times. I once spotted him wearing Thom Browne for the first time, and sure enough, for several times after that he wore Thom Browne. Another example, he was spotted arriving in Toronto for TIFF in an Alexander McQueen hoodie, and sure enough, for a couple of TIFF interviews he wore Alexander McQueen."
But since he was mostly treading the red carpet during promo for Call Me By Your Name, he wasn’t exactly an accessible style inspiration. Who could afford that Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface? This past summer was a drought, as Chalamet had no major releases (Hot Summer Nights was filmed prior to CMBYN and cheekily released once his bubble of fame popped).
However, we have entered a new era. Last week, Chalamet sported a McQueen V-neck sweater ($990), a pair of A.P.C. techno sneakers ($310) and—an Italian villa necessity—Hotsox’s Botticelli's Birth of Venus Crew Socks ($5.99). It was a casual power move.
