Travis Scott Has (Straight Up!) Mastered the Art of Creating a Signature Fit

Rachel Luna

Travis Scott is everywhere. Over the last few years, the multitalented Grammy nominee has managed to turn himself into one of the foremost fashion plates around, and a bona fide force within the world of menswear. These days, his status as a tastemaker par excellence is second to none. His sneakers are sure to sell out, and he’s played an outsized role in re-popularizing the Nike Dunk, a silhouette he stays rocking with a downright admirable consistency (he’s releasing his own highly-anticipated version in collaboration with the swoosh later this week).

Scott tends to stick to a few variations on the same theme when it comes to getting dressed, at least casually. He knows what works. His is an endlessly-mimicked take on luxury streetwear, with the requisite rare high-fashion grails mixed in for good measure and made all the better by his particularly savvy mastery of proportion. Scott favors longer, slightly oversized tees and boxy, cropped jackets and typically balances out the bottom half of his fit with seriously baggy pants or a slimmer pair of trousers that stack and pool over pared-down sneakers. Court-side is his catwalk.

But when Scott suits up, it’s a completely different ballgame. Few do it better. He nails the fit every time, showing up (and showing out) in sleek, elegant tailoring that perfectly suits his trim frame, often adding a surprising dose of modernity to otherwise staid formal getups. Take it from the man himself: La Flame don’t play no games.

Scott on stage in a variation of his go-to look: a trim piece of lightweight outwear, sagging jeans, and a pair of his own signature Jordans.

At the premiere of his recent Netflix documentary, Scott came through in one of his cleanest looks on record.

Travis Scott in his natural habitat: court-side, in Prada and a pair of Cactus Plant Flea Market Nike Air Vapormaxes.

At the 2019 Met Gala, Scott didn’t exactly lean into the event’s “camp” theme. Instead, he pulled up in a precisely-cut, militaristic take on classic tailoring, of Dior Men, and I’m not mad about it in the slightest.

Scott, never one to pass up an opportunity to stunt, steps out in NYC rocking a rare Raf Simons varsity jacket, baggy-ass trousers, and a pair of sandals from Bape’s collaboration with Suicoke. This is the fit of the early-morning bodega run of your dreams.

Once again, if you’re wearing a suit today, make like Travis here and dress yours down with a clean pair of kicks and a plain dark tee.

Another fire piece of outerwear, another dope take on slim denim, and another pair of low-top Nikes (Dunks, this time around).

Okay, I’m beginning to detect a pattern.

Sheesh, man. This is Travis at the 2019 Grammys. ‘Nuff said.

For his appearance on The Tonight Show in 2018, Travis made a full Rick Owens suit look as wearable as any t-shirt and jeans combination.

Said t-shirt and jeans combination, done the Travis Scott way (and finished off with another pair of trusty sandals, naturally).

For his first Met Gala appearance way back in 2018, Scott and his boo (someone named Kylie?) came through in matching Alexander Wang ensembles.

Ladies and gentlemen: The Travis Scott Look, compiled in one blessed for your convenience.

At the LA premiere for Uncut Gems, one of the most stylish movies of the year, Travis showed up dressed accordingly in one of the sleekest shawl-collar suits I’ve seen in a minute.

Achingly cool cropped jacket up top? Check. Extremely rare pair of Jordan 4s on the bottom? Yes, sir. Even if this wasn’t a picture of Travis Scott, this would be a picture of Travis Scott.
