It’s been a day. A week. We get it. And when times get tough, sometimes the only thing that helps is Justin Bieber dressed head-to-toe in a calming shade of buttery yellow. The yellow you paint your child’s nursery, or maybe your third Porsche. Yellow that says: “It’s been a rough little while. You’ll be ok.” Yellow that says: this is, truly, the Big Fit of the Day.
The road to recovery is littered with important milestones. For Kevin Durant, who has largely avoided the spotlight since tearing his Achilles in the NBA Finals last June, those firsts are now coming in rapid succession. For the first time since joining the Brooklyn Nets, Durant went on a road trip with his new team. For the first time, he was seen playing four-on-four and dunking in a video posted by his brother Tony. And he’s rocking the footwear required of a superstar—Travis Scott’s collaborative Air Jordan 1 Low, to be exact—in his first Big Fit of the Day.
There are two ways to remind people of your imminent, league-stomping return: put out a series of season-ticket advertisements crowning yourself the King of New York, or show off your legit seven-foot frame on the bench in an all-black Big Fit. Durant is doing both. Skulking the sidelines in sneakers
Disney’s Mulan premiere was a wellspring of sizable fits—see here, here, and here—but no fit was as large as the one worn by action star Jet Li, who showed up looking healthy and ready to avenge his brother’s death in America while simultaneously falling in love with Aaliyah.
Fit-wise, please note the assortment of interesting buttons, the comfy shoes, and the dark round glasses that suggests he knows the passcode to a prohibition-era speakeasy. In the film, he’s cast as the Chinese emperor who orders that every household must send a male heir to fight in the army, and now here he is looking no less regal. A fit for a king.

Earlier this morning, the Swoosh dropped an absolute behemoth of a Flash Sale: 30% off hundreds of sneakers, clothes, and accessories, including a ton of already-discounted items, when you enter “POWERUP” at checkout. Only catch? There’s no telling how long these deals will stick around. To save you time and get you into some fresh new kicks as efficiently as possible, we scrolled through and picked out the 22 best deals in the bunch.

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we’ll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.
A year and a half ago, during the summer of Pete Davidson and BDE, the comedian was captured by the paparazzi in an outfit I’ll forever associate with that particular wavelength of energy. He’s wearing a cotton-candy pink Thrasher T-shirt and a colorful pair of Bape’s Shark shorts (For too many guys, this used to be the absolute Everest of style). In the picture I’ll think about as I take my dying breaths, Davidson is engaged in a stretch and pushing his pelvis out. In the time since, a lot has changed for Davidson, including his Facebook Relationship Status (it’s complicated), IMDB page (he has two movies coming out this year), and his style. In his new Netflix special Alive From New York, Davidson looks all grown up in
