Urban Gentleman Spotlight: Shia LaBeouf

Photobucket

He first caught our eye on Disney’s Even Stevens as a mischievous teenager and ultra annoying younger brother. Then his overall “swag” changed to the world on July 3, 2007 when he starred in the blockbuster hit Transformers

Wall Street: Movie Never Sleeps

After Transformers, there was Indiana Jones, then Eagle Eye. And I must say, that’s where Mr.LaBeouf truly metamorphized in my eyes. About an hour into Eagle Eye I said to myself, “Hmmm, this guy has really grown up”, as he went from the lil’ kid on Even Stevens to the handsome action-movie stud who has a secret taste for island chicks, lol (ie. Rihanna,). Then there was Transformers II, and in his latest film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, he just, well, he just exemplifies the looks of an Urban Gentleman.

Shia’s charisma, comedic charm, and seemingly bad boy behavior keeps us all captivated… and patiently awaiting his next move.

Jock it, Love it, Own it.
The Style of Shia LaBeouf

Are all the fly guys double-dressing these days? Seems that way. Bobby Ray isn’t the only one that has two noticeably different styles, urban gent Shia does too. Check out the scruffy vintagey casual and meticulously polished dressy style of Mr. LaBeouf.

Casual or Dressy Shia gives it to us old-school cool from the skinny ties to skinny jeans and characterized canvas lo-tops.

Casual:

Retro-inspired or vintage tees and plaid button-ups are how he likes his shirts, with the occasional cardigan or vintage jacket for that extra carefree umph. His jeans are always skinny and in some shade gray, black, or blue. Authentic Vans, PF Flyers, and Nike Sweet Classics are usually his shoes of choice. And lastly, Shia usually accessorizes with a vintage hat, vintage belt, retro-frames, and an occasional backpack (nothing beats the one he got from Egypt, below).

Dressy:
When Shia dresses up, expect nothing but perfect slim-fit suits, skinny ties, and all things that are Sammy Davis Jr-esque.

His casual ensemble in France is much different than his casual style in Cali. Shia wears a basic blue button-down, black sweater, black jeans, and black oxfords.

Futboller David Beckham leaving Dave’s Quality Meat with his wife and kids. He keeps it casual in a Stuntman Trucker hat, Ray-Ban gold aviator sunglasses, and Alife Chuck Naval sneakers ($125).

Photobucket
Jay-Z out and about wearing a G-Star slim “Taylor” Denim Jacket, ripped jeans, Nike RT1 kicks, and Oliver Peoples “Daddy B” sunglasses. Though Jay’s style game has stepped up as a whole, he still manages to have a few off days where his clothing is a bit sloppy. I’m all about loose-fitting/relaxed fit jeans when you’re in a mood to be extra comfortable (like traveling through an airport, which Jay was doing), but loose-fit jeans usually go best with low-top shoes like Converse or Vans– especially if you wear your jeans a size or two too big, like Jay sometimes does.

Photobucket

Usher and teen star/young urban gent Justin Beiber walk the red carpet. Usher wears a pair of Marc Jacobs 306 sunglasses, his favorite Ralph Lauren RRL jeans, and green Raf Simons multi-buckle sneakers. Justin keeps it cool in black and white, sporting a pair of Supra TK Society sneakers.

Photobucket

Pharrell Williams attends the 2010 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix wearing a BBC distressed print Hickory jacket, white v-neck, BBC Digi-Camo 3/4 cargo shorts, and a pair of Chanel Denim sunglasses.

Pharrell in a BBC jacket and skully, his new staple eyewear: denim-covered Chanel shades, and I know you’re probably thinking, “What kind of shoes are those? He wears those everywhere nowadays”. Well, they’re Billionaire Boys Club “NOTHING” Boutique Sneakers (coming in July) even Bill Clinton wants a pair

Photobucket

Superstar Justin Timberlake keeps it everyday cool in his wayfarers, plaid shorts, and a pair of Air Jordan 2 Retro 25th Anniversary sneakers

Photobucket

Jay-Z at a Yankees vs. Tigers baseball game. He sports his signature NY hat, distressed, jeans, and a Rick Owens leather jacket.

Photobucket

David Beckham, wearing his usual Wrangler Blue Bell Destroyed Denim jacket. How does this guy manage to look like a model in every picture? He always keeps it denim focused in Wrangler… a little too much, hmmm, maybe he’s their unofficial spokesperson of sorts?

Photobucket

Zac in a black v-neck knit sweater, his signature skully, black Vans, and tortoise Rayban wayfarers. He carries a Louis Vuitton travel bag. (PS- All Urban Gentlemen must have atleast one pair of canvas shoes for the spring and summer.)

It’s still springtime, but summer is around the corner. And I don’t know why, but summer is synonymous with, well, yanno, going hard… pushing the limits… getting down to business… “hustlin” as some may say. Don’t get me wrong, urban gents have to relax, but if there’s anything you’ve ever wanted to do, any goals you’ve wanted to reach, what better time to do it than in twentyten… getterdone! lol, it’s never too late.
