If you hadn’t noticed, Shia LaBeouf loves to make a statement. (This is the same guy who recently hit the red carpet with a bag covering his face and a chipped front tooth.) So for today’s edition of “What’s Going on in LaBeouf’s Brain,” we’re turning our attention to his sweatpants, which he’s been wearing, Steve Urkel-style, all around L.A. this week.

We’re really intrigued by how LaBeouf is styling his new star-off-duty look. Not only does he wear the comfy pants up around this navel, but he also likes to pull up the bottoms of the sweats so they hit around his shin, a choice we presume he made to show off those boots. So far, he’s been a fan of Uggs and lace-up work boots, but we wouldn’t be surprised if he brought out the combats soon. As for a top, he’s been showcasing a selection of graphic tees to really drive that “statement” thing home.

Maybe LaBeouf has once again decided to “retire from all public life” and these pants are part of said retirement. It could be that he’s just exercising his right to wear comfortable bottoms outside of the gym and his couch. Or perhaps he’s plagiarizing this look from your grandpa? Regardless, we want to know: What do you think of his look? No big deal or early signs of a style meltdown?

You want to know what I think? Your journalism just crossed over to bullying. Let him be.

I agree. Leave him alone and let him wear what he wants. What he’s wearing makes me feel better than reading about these actresses carrying around purses that cost more than my car.

Kim on

Totally agree! Calm yourself People Magazine. Who cares what he is wearing. He’s never claimed to be a fashon icon.

Why pick on him over his choice in pants – or anyone for their choice in clothing. This isn’t entertainment news at all, just being ugly.

Clean it up and rise above such junk, People. You’re better than this.

Slow news day, People? Make fun of Kimye or something..something we would all agree with..

It is a different look for him but live and let live! We need to worry about the more important things in life….

@Frances.. sigh. valid point: seeing purses that cost more than my yearly rent (don’t own a car), “the Hermes Birkin”, for example, is obscene/depressing !

I think high waisted actually looks nice. Anyone remember Sully from Dr. Quinn? High waisted trousers. I think it’s flattering. I always wear high waisted jeans as opposed to “hip huggers” that show my butt crack, and I’ve no complaints…

Amanda on

Very rude story. Why does it matter what he chooses to wear? Leave him alone.

Brittany Talarico,

Leave Shia Alone!
