For actor-turned-musician Bret Jackson, it's all about that comfy fit. These days, he spends most of his time in the studio and that calls for an assortment of relaxed hoodies and joggers. And if we learned anything from the past decade, it's that a simple style combo like that is enough to make a sleazy statement (in a good way).

Esquire caught up with the artist, who shared some of his favorite and must-have items. (You know, just in case, you want to try out that relaxed fit for yourself.) From a light hoodie to his Nintendo Switch, here are Jackson's everyday essentials.

Jackson alternates between slip-ons and his trusty Air Force 1s for daily wear. And his collection includes a White/Black pair, as well as the NBA Lakers edition with the instantly recognizable combination of purple and yellow. "I definitely like to keep casual. I usually just wear my Nikes, like Air Force 1s. Just something simple like that," he says.

Like with his shoes, he sticks to two styles of trousers as essentials, with one being joggers. At any given time, you can spot him in classic Guess joggers or even more standout options like these 3.1 Phillip Lims he wore during a shoot with concept boutique Univers.

"I like to wear more loose fit clothing," Jackson says. Loose tees, sweatshirts, and jackets included. Aside from big tees, he mostly lives in hoodies. His favorite hoodie brands include a mix of local brands including Uplifted and Organic Lifestyle. Since he grew up in Dumaguete, he likes to support brands in the Visayas area.

If Jackson's not in track pants or joggers, you'll probably see him in denim. Trust, however, that it'll be in a loose fitted pair of denims. Looking for the best baggy pants to cop right now? Read more here.

AirPods needs no introduction. As a singer and composer, Jackson is constantly listening to tracks he's working on. "I've been using the AirPods. I know everyone says they're overrated, but I don't know... I love listening to music all the time. So, when I have my AirPods, it's a lot easier," he says.

To keep entertained, he brings around his Nintendo Switch with him. "I've always been a fan of Nintendo even before. [My friends and I] always play 'Super Smash Bros.' and stuff like that. So, I need my Switch around for sure."

The 28-year-old confesses that he's a simple guy. Hence, his short list of essentials. "I just bring my earphones, my bag, and I just dress comfortably." Guess is a brand he collaborates with a lot, so it's a no-brainer that he uses one of the brand's fanny packs on the daily.

Out of the studio, Jackson likes to be on his skateboard. It's something he's been enthusiastic about since the start. It's so much of an essential that he even brings either a skateboard or longboard when traveling.

"Sometimes, I bring my longboard with me. It's nice to be able to skate in different places. I bring my longboard over my skateboard because if I'm traveling because I never know what the road is going to be like," he says.
