Rami Malek and Michael B. Jordan Love Hoodies Offscreen, Too
"If you see me on a red carpet in a hoodie, just know I won that battle that day," says Jordan.
It's official: The hoodie is back.
Designers (specifically Demna Gvasalia of Vetements) most recently gave their blessing to the lazy person's uniform staple by sending high-fashion hoodies down the runways at Paris Fashion Week. But Rami Malek and Michael B. Jordan, who were both featured on covers of THR's 25 Most Powerful Stylists issue alongside their image-makers, are way ahead of the trend.
Not only do both of the actors play hoodie lovers in their most recent gigs (Malek as Elliot in Mr. Robot and Jordan as Adonis in Creed), but they've been known to take them off set, too.
"I'm that guy," said Jordan, noting that he may or may not have taken a few of his Creed hoodies from the set. "If I wore it for three or four months and I get attached to it, it's coming home with me."
Malek, too, has a special attachment to the hoodie he wears on the show — mainly because it was his own personal piece to begin with. "It's something I've had in my closet for a while," said the actor of the infamous black hoodie. "It's the liner of a jacket. They called the designer, B:Scott, and he ended up making about 20 more — but nothing feels as good as the original."
