Brad Pitt rides his motorcycle as he heads out to buy coffee beans in a new advert for De'Longhi, known for its luxury coffee and espresso machines, in the company's first international "Perfetto" campaign.

Smooth as ever, just as De'Longhi's coffee, the Hollywood heartthrob sits down with a cuppa – and we're swooning at his effortless "perfecto".


He tells Esquire of his style, which pairs so well with the campaign: "I like monochrome, without it being a uniform. I like simplicity. I like the details in the stitching, the way it feels. If anything, that's the only divining rod I have."

The actor says: "I like the feel of a Lecia camera or the way a watch feels. I don't want to look ostentatious, but if you come close, you notice. I like how the lining feels. It's those details that are important to me. It's too exhausting to follow trends. And I despise billboards; I just don't want to be billboard," before joking: "You get older, you get crankier, and comfort becomes more important. I think it's as simple as that."

So what is the secret to Brad's signature style? "If I have a style," he says, "it's no style."
