Reports of the suit's death may be greatly exaggerated, but to say the garment has had an easy time of it this last year-and-a-half would be equally misleading. Some folks might have skipped the sweatpants and stuck out their time in the WFH world in jeans or collared shirts, but I don't know anyone who was suiting up for the stroll from the bedroom to the kitchen. Maybe you do! Maybe that person is you. If so, I applaud your pluck, you weirdo. For the rest of the world, let Seth Rogen guide you to a return-to-real-life suited vibe that looks not only presentable but downright cozy.

Rogen arrived at the back lot of Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past Friday wearing a black suit so gloriously unstructured, so stupendously soft that you get the feeling you could swap it for your pajamas and not notice the difference. The unbuttoned double-breasted jacket—a silhouette often reserved for the most pressed-and-polished tailoring—hung easily off his shoulders, swaying in the breeze. The pants were of the pull-on variety, injecting a casual element that worked well with the simple, heather gray T-shirt Rogen was wearing. (And if he wanted to hide that elasticated waist, he could have simply buttoned the jacket and upped the formality considerably.) The New Balance 990s on Rogen's feet? Like the cherry on top of this outfit sundae, just, you know...not actually on top.

The combined effect was basically "cool guy who's putting in some effort, but also isn't all that worried about things." It was pulled-together, but intentionally chilled-out. It was, in other words, exactly how a whole lot of folks want to be dressing these days. If you've already identified the impulse in yourself, but haven't been able to zero in on what kind of outfit would meet your new sartorial parameters, well, you just found it. The suit in all its iterations ain't dead, but the soft suit is truly living, man. Rogen knows it. And now you do, too.
