A year ago, the actor Daniel Day-Lewis made his first public appearance in years and looked—as he’s tended to throughout his chameleonic career—like an entirely new version of himself. Wearing a zip-up hoodie, pale yellow skate pants, and a trucker hat from the Japanese moto brand Yoshimura, the three-time Oscar winner more closely resembled streetwear imp Timothée Chalamet than the stoic workwear god we’d come to lionize around these parts.

And though Day-Lewis may be retired from the craft of acting, his decades-long commitment to eclectic clothing persists. By last fall, he’d returned to his workwear roots, wearing a turquoise bolo tie and a Kaptial denim jacket to an event in October and then, a few weeks later, a printed Howler Brothers snap-button shirt and a great pair of blue jeans on a walk with Bradley Cooper in New York City. In January, he went full Carhartt in a beat-up Detroit jacket and matching khaki double-knees; not long after, he dressed up his velvet suit with rugged Western accessories and steel-toed work boots.

Day-Lewis—who just celebrated his 67th birthday this week—reappeared in Manhattan sporting a seasonally appropriate, but still characteristically jagged, getup: a Carhartt WIP short-sleeve navy work shirt and nearly matching navy work pants (at first glance, it looks like he’s wearing a full boilersuit) with Nicks leather work boots, dark shades, and a yellow printed kerchief tied around his neck. His short sleeves revealed his armfuls of intriguing tattoos—my personal favorite is a winding mermaid—as well as an embellished silver bracelet and a silver Rolex Explorer. And though he’s since shorn the chin-length silver curls he was rocking last spring, DDL’s still rolling with the same Yoshimura trucker cap.

As winter’s chill thaws, a Carhartt buff blooms in Manhattan. The cycle begins anew.
