Seth Rogen Had a Supremely Stylish Time at SXSW

A not terribly controversial statement: Seth Rogen is a pretty chill dude. In fact, the funnyman actor and masterful dick joke writer is beloved by millions precisely for his chillest-dude persona. But don’t let Rogen’s past days of baggy cargo shorts and worn-in flannels fool you. He’s still a likable stoner—but he’s since evolved into one with a razor-sharp sense of personal style. We wrote about Rogen’s newfound personal style last year, and are happy to report that he is still at it. Most recently, the actor has been at the South by Southwest Film Festival promoting his latest film, Long Shot—and he’s been serving up some expert-level menswear moves left and right.

First up is the strong suiting move Rogen wore to the premiere of his new film: the one-two combination of a Yves Klein Blue-esque suit and a tucked-in T-shirt (in the very same blue shade) with some white gum-soled Veja sneakers. Pairing a bold-colored suit with a casual tee isn’t always easy, but something about the monochromatic look in such a bright shade just works. Not to mention that the outfit holds its own when posing next to co-star Charlize Theron and her ultra-colorful dress from Louis Vuitton: no small feat.

One killer outfit per festival is usually an accomplishment enough, but not for Rogen. At another event, he opted for a more informal look: a classic striped rugby tee, perfectly cropped pants, and black Adidas sneakers. It’s an elevated take on the type of understated casual menswear that never goes out of style. And proof that a well-fitting pair of pants and a rugby shirt will always look good, whether you’re a movie star or not. And then he showed up at another panel rocking a rugby from the much-loved Palace x Polo collaboration.

The lesson: when you find a piece that works for you—like Rogen and his rugby—don’t stop buying it. And then see if Palace makes one. Lastly, it’s also worth calling out Rogen’s grooming game here. Low-maintenance hair and a trimmed beard are two key things that will make any outfit look automatically more stylish.

If you grew up watching Rogen’s movies, and have a soft spot for menswear, then you know watching him blossom from a stoner-chic dudebro to seriously stylish movie star has been nothing short of pure joy. And if you’re ever looking to work some “chill dude” style moves into your own wardrobe, borrowing a trick or two from Seth isn’t a bad place to start.
