It’s powerful to pinpoint when, precisely, Adam Sandler—who, based on Google’s Year in Search report, was 2021’s most searched identify within the “superstar style” class—grew to become a method icon. It’s not that his wardrobe has modified a lot during the last couple many years (it hasn’t), or solely as a result of sooner or later 2000s schlub grew to become 2020s drip (it has). No, it is that, via all of it, the Sandman—who additionally, crucially, starred as the most stylish character in the most stylish movie of 2019—has by no means stopped dressing like himself.
Sandler’s presently on the promo circuit for Hustle, his newest Netflix film (his firm, Comfortable Madison Productions, has had an ongoing multi-movie take care of the streamer since 2014), wherein he performs a fictional Philadelphia 76ers scout. Yesterday, when he was noticed strolling across the Jimmy Kimmel Stay! lot carrying a branded Hustle trucker cap and carrying a rumpled armful of clothes, he could have inadvertently given us a glimpse into his crimson carpet wardrobe to come back—and let’s simply say, it would in all probability contain numerous blue and orange. Any fictional allegiance to the Sixers apart, Brooklyn-born Sandler is a Knicks man.
He wore a set of these aforementioned clothes to that night’s Hustle premiere in Los Angeles, together with a pair of neon orange Hokas, loose-fit pool-blue trousers, and a printed polo from Wailea Golf Membership, which is situated on the Hawaiian island of Maui. (In traditional Sandler style, he additionally wore one other Wailea polo to a different Netflix occasion a couple of weeks in the past. Our man is on island time.)
Suffice to say, Sandler remains to be all Sandler, on a regular basis: “He’s like a comfy boy,” Uncut Gems costume designer Miyako Bellizzi told GQ in 2019. “His private model is superb. He wears basketball shorts and Jordans day by day, irrespective of the climate. If he is not comfy, then he is not going to put on it.”
