Rob Kazinsky Has Discovered the Ultimate Hoodie

Art imitates life as the 'World of Warcraft' fiend stars in a new film based on the video game—and models the latest trend in fashion.

The Guy

Most actors who land iconic roles in the fantasy genre end up cramming source material and praying they don’t alienate the Comic-Con crowd. Rob Kazinsky doesn’t have that worry. This summer, the 32-year-old former British soap star appears as Orc war chief Orgrim Doomhammer in Warcraft, the film version of the massively popular multiplayer video game—something Kazinsky, it turns out, has been obsessed with for more than a decade. In fact, he used to play 18 hours a day: “It was one of the happiest times of my life,” he says. “Roll out of bed, raid a little, swap over to another realm. Raid again. Then do it all over again until 4 a.m.”

The Clothes

Kenneth Cole’s luxe take on the hoodie blends the slim tailoring of a sport coat with performance outerwear features like nylon sleeves and knit cuffs. The result is a casual classic that dresses up. “It allows for ultimate wardrobe flexibility,” says Cole. “You can go straight from the plane to a business meeting or a dinner.”
