Chris Pine landed in the Big Apple with a few solid sartorial choices after he’s become a bit of a viral sensation for his quirky ensembles.
The 43-year-old Disney’s Wish actor — who recently defended his style as a ‘vibe’ — was spotted rocking two distinct wardrobes while out on a promotional tour in New York on Wednesday.
Arriving for an appearance on a talk show in a purple smoking jacket, red shirt and shiny grey slacks, Chris looked like he stepped off a runway and was ready for his close-up.
Later, he was seen in a mustard yellow suit, complete with a white dress shirt and light brown loafers.
Of course, the matinee idol looked as handsome as ever in both outfits, with his salt-and-pepper locks and matching beard taking center stage.

The two-outfit outing comes a day after Chris fiercely and hilariously spoke out in support of his recent ‘short shorts’ look.
‘I don’t think there is anything to defend,’ Chris quipped to E! in reference to his October 27th outfit consisting of a tiny pair of shorts paired with a yellow hoodie and brown loafers. ‘It’s called short shorts, isn’t it? It’s supposed to be short.’
He doubled down, adding, ‘Corduroy short shorts. I mean, it’s a vibe. It’s the best vibe. It’s like a Tom Selleck vibe. It’s like a ’70s surfer vibe. I prefer that.’
The Wish star was referring to actor Selleck who famously played Richard on Friends, and, before that, made a name for himself as the short shorts-wearing TV detective Magnum P.I.
‘It’s like showtime. Lakers—would you rather see them with the short shorts and Magic Johnson looking like a basketball player and athlete, rather than wearing some sort of capri on the floor?’ Chris hilariously continued. ‘No. So, I’ll be wearing the short shorts.’
As for how long he’s going to be showing off his gams? ‘Until the legs go,’ he confessed.
Chris’ defense of his sartorial choices comes after he recently took inventory of his meme-worthy personal style and described it as ‘jiggy,’ per People.
His ‘jiggy’ style was evident on his most recent trip to a gym, where he took Twitter by storm after serving up a scoop-neck PBS tank top, figure-hugging leggings (once again) and slip-on huarache sandals.

The kicker was Chris’ rainbow-sherbet-striped cashmere ‘grandma cardigan,’ which truly sparked the social media firestorm, as one follower called out the hunk as a ‘Los feliz mom driving her prius to drop off her kids at nondenominational quaker high school’.
Another user tagged the look as if ‘Lisa Rinna got bitten by a werewolf’, as Chris rocked a shaggy head of hair and beard.
Chris is no stranger to a good ribbing online, as he was the talk of the Twitter town during most of the promotional tour for Don’t Worry Darling, including the famous ‘Spitgate’ with Harry Styles.
At a press conference for the film, Chris — rocking long hair, a navy blazer and headphones — had a somewhat disinterested gaze and was even caught staring at the ceiling at one point.

No thrifting: Despite the last-minute aesthetic, Chris isn’t settling on thrift store finds: the colorful sweater is by celeb-favorite brand The Elder Stateman and retails for a mere $2,395
One Twitter user posted the photo with the caption, ‘nine year old me on a road trip staring out the window while evanescence blasts in my CD player’, as another shared, ‘me filling the room with negative energy bc i don’t wanna be there’.
The Dungeons & Dragons star hilariously clapped back during an Esquire interview, saying, ‘It should be known, that the press conferences in Venice are in one of the most gorgeous buildings I’ve ever seen. The ceilings are like blue and gold.
‘So there’s one of these [memes] where I’m looking up and really what I’m thinking is, “How can I do that to my ceiling?” That was going through my head’.
In the same interview, Chris defended his esoteric fashion sense, calling it ‘f****** awesome”‘ and ‘ridiculously cool.’
He added that it’s been compared to Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band and the Bee Gees.
