Justin Bieber's Met Gala Drew House Fit & Nikes Are, uh … ?
Now, look here. I love a big baggy suit, especially if it’s Balenciaga. And Justin Bieber is an avowed Balenciaga fan, so you’d think he’d really know his way around a bit of slouchy tailoring. Not so, sadly.
And who am I to be nitpicking anyone stylish/influential/relevant/rich/famous enough to be showing their stuff at the 2021 Met Gala? Well, I’m not necessarily saying Justin is among the worst-dressed, I suppose, but someone’s gotta answer for the look.
According to his on-carpet chat with Keke Palmer (who killed it, by the way), Bieber’s entire look is head-to-toe Drew House, the lifestyle brand he co-founded with his brother. But it’s not just Drew House, no, it’s Le Maison Drew, a sub-label of Drew that’s apparently dedicated to making saggy, shapeless evening wear. Er, I mean couture. Drew-ture, if you will.
Let’s see, we’ve got big satin lapels with bizarre crossover closure and a shirt that’s too long in the sleeves. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t care nearly enough about collar rolls and canvassed lining to be picking apart the fit of someone’s suit, but this isn’t baggy in a cool way, it’s sloppy in a “just tossed on my dad’s suit” way.
Then there’s the pants. Again, I am a big pants apologist, but even I’m not sorry enough for these wide, pooling pants with inexplicable pleating at the side. (?)
Bieber’s accessorizing is the final nail in the coffin, though. The shiny gold watch that matches the cufflinks (watch guys, please leave me be), the suede suitcase thing with the Drew logo, and — to top it all off — a pair of Nike Air Force 1s seemingly customized by hand, down to the Drew sticker on the heel and teddy bear doodle.
If this is how Bieber wants to debut a new clothing line, go for it. For all I know, he was joking about Le Maison Drew (he did say it in a faux French accent). But this ‘fit is no laughing matter, my man.
