KarmaloopTV recently hit the island of Jamaica to help shoot and direct the new Diplo and Major Lazer visual for “Lose Yourself,” and it came out crazy. It’s like, the whole Olympic sport of twerking got reinvented with this video. Though you can catch the whole squad in slim fitted suits during the video, it’s the gear off the camera that we were interested in. What do you wear if you’re Diplo trying to direct a music video on an island?
Since we spent a whole week with the guys, we got a pretty good idea of what they liked to rock off the camera. Though winter in Jamaica is pretty close to ideal weather, the nights were definitely chillier than we had anticipated. Scroll through to see what Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire stay laced in when they’re not holding goats while watching girls twerk with no hands.
1. Zanerobe The Das Buro Pants in Charcoal Bandana
Zanerobe pants are a favorite amongst the crew, especially Jillionaire. When it comes to jogger pants, Zanerobe has the crown right now.
2. Crooks and Castles The Primo Tee in Black
It seems like both Diplo and Crooks like making fun of the Versace inspired Medusa head and why not?
3. Biography Wear Fitted/Classic Button Down Chambray
A favorite of Washly Fire, chambray shirts are a staple item that will never go out of style. Pair them shorts or khakis for an all American look and feel.
4. All In Eyewear Voltaire – Black
Whether on spring break, or shooting a Diplo video, aviator glasses are an essential piece of the puzzle.
5. Vans Footwear Ludlow Sneaker
There’s no point in lugging a pair of boots or basketball shoes to an island, you’re just not going to find the place to wear ’em. Stay classy and comfy in some low top Vans instead.
