The fact that Samuel L. Jackson is cool has been a constantsomething unshakeable in an unsteady world. But he's no longer just a hero for millennials who like reciting Pulp Fiction's Ezekiel 25:17 passage word for word. Now, he's the new high priest of hypebeasts.

Check out the actor's latest outfit. This is streetwear for grown-ups, unshackled to the brand hysteria of Supreme or Champion, and eschewing trickier trends like the wide-leg trouser or the oversized puffer jacket.

Better yet, SLJ rises above your lowly peon logomania and sticks to the holy trinity of hypebeast essentials: a color pop, a beanie, and some glasses last seen on a blurry relative in a photo album from 1992 that nobody can quite recall the name of.

It's great, is what we're saying, and proves that age is but a number. Like Jeff Goldblum, Jackson is taking sound style well into his twilight yearsand still doing it better than the kids.
