Last week, actor Brian Cox of Succession fame wore this outfit on The Tonight Show. This choice has caused quite a stir.

The outfit flew under the radar for a few days...until GQ tweeted this, and the comments started flying in.

(Tragically, the tweet preview cuts off the loafers.)

TBH, the outfit looked nice in other photos!

I want to note that THIS amazing getup is what he wore for a skit with Jimmy Fallon during the show. I just think this look should be talked about as well! Goat Leg Greg...slayed.
