Brad Pitt stood out on the red carpet at the recent premiere for his forthcoming film Bullet Train, all thanks to the help of a linen midi skirt.

After arriving on the red carpet in Berlin, Germany on Thursday evening, the actor spoke about his reasons for wearing the brown knee-length design, telling Sky News: 'I'm going to say, it's all about the breeze, the breeze is very nice… very, very nice.'

The look was a direct contrast to the less groundbreaking yet dapper suit he wore to the film's London premiere the day before.

Pitt was clearly fond of his sartorial choices in Berlin, as he recommended that men in Britain wear a skirt to keep cool during the recent heatwave, which saw temperatures soar to 40 degrees in the UK earlier this week.

The Oscar-winner actor teamed his skirt, designed by Haans Nicholas Mott, with a relaxed mauve shirt and brown tonal cardigan, which he grounded with combat boots. He topped off the look with tortoiseshell sunglasses and clashing chains.

Unsurprisingly, fans have reacted to Pitt's style choices via social media, with one person praising the 58-year-old for 'normalising' men wearing skirts.

'Brad Pitt out there normalising men wearing skirts on his latest red carpet. Cheers, Brad [sic],' one user wrote on Twitter.

Another quipped: 'Just when you think Brad Pitt couldn’t get sexier, he wears a skirt [sic].'

One person seemed unsure about Pitt's style for the evening as they commented: 'So is Brad Pitt going to try to make kilts happen or…[sic].'

Another alluded to Pitt 'channeling his Troy era'.

Pitt previously predicted that skirts would become a fashion trend for men way back in 2004, when promoting his historical war film Troy. At the time, he told Vogue: 'Men will be wearing skirts by next summer. That’s my prediction and proclamation.

'The film answers to both genders. We were going for realism and Greeks wore skirts all the time then.'

Pitt's decision to wear a skirt would seem to reflect his desire to focus on 'comfort' as he gets older.

Last year he told Esquire: 'You get older, you get crankier, and comfort becomes more important. I think it’s as simple as that. If I have a style, it’s no style.

'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.'

We're all here for the skirt, Pitt.
