Welcome to Heat Check, a (semi)regular dose of much-needed style inspiration culled from the very best celebrity fit pics around.

Sometimes the bigness of a fit is determined not only by the clothing on display but by the context in which it appears. Case in point: conscientious king Chris Pine, out and about the other day in a pair of perfectly cut shorts and some beat-up Chucks, carrying a brown paper bag from Skylight Books, an independent bookstore in L.A., that looks full almost to the point of tearing open. (Note the careful bottom-hold technique, avoiding the need for a wasteful second bag. Double points for that.)

In his relatively unassuming errand-run fit, Pine's choice of standout accessory—a crisp white mask firmly affixed to his face—makes more of a statement than any generic designer dud the guy could've possibly flexed in.

In other words, he's exuding absolutely tremendous internet-boyfriend energy. And while I'm typically prone to distrust anyone this conventionally handsome, I've got to say: Chris Pine is out here making a real compelling argument in favor of his status as the people's Chris, the best of the many Famous Chrises out there. (With all due respect to Chris Evans. It was close.)

And if it feels like applauding celebrities for doing the bare minimum is a real low bar to set, well, it is. But here we are. Because coronavirus cases are spiking throughout the country (including across California) and the least we can all do to stop the spread is make like Chris Pine here and mask the fuck up before leaving the house.

Nothing but respect for MY Chris.
