If Chester Cheetah were a real person, we imagine he’d be someone like Samuel L. Jackson: supremely cool, totally relaxed, and also kind of rude sometimes. Chester would also be the kind of guy who reps his brand non-stop with no regrets. Hey, you can’t fault a guy for being on 100% of the time.
Unfortunately for Chester, he’s not a real person, so he’s missing out on being able to wear one of the funniest, flip, and fiery fashion collabs to debut this year: The Flamin’ Hot Cheetos X Forever 21 collection.
Though Forever 21 is traditionally thought of as a young women’s brand, it has added menswear to its racks of fast fashion over the past few years. The store’s latest collection with Cheetos takes the cake and kills it in the modern-day camp-style department.
Here are a few of our favorites picks from the men’s side of the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos X Forever 21 collection. We suggested pairing these with Takis.
This graphic T-shirt is fire — Flamin’ Hot Cheeto fire, that is. Featuring Chester the Cheetah breathing fire, the black long-sleeved shirt is perhaps the most laid-back (and stereotypical) graphic tee in the collection. Wear it on the weekend and count the passersby’s double-takes.
If you thought leopard print was only for your grandma in the 1980s and ’90s, you would be terribly, terribly wrong. Correct yourself immediately by slipping into a pair of these studly swim trunks and becoming a snack yourself.
You can’t wear a pair of leopard print swim trunks without a pair of Flamin’ Hot slides to go with ’em. Made from vinyl, these bad boys have a textured outsole so you don’t have to worry about slipping out of these slides.
We’ve got leopard print once already, why not double down? Only this time with a fairly high-fashion black on red print. Wear it open with your graphic tee underneath for full fanboy effect.
Taking a cue from the cheetah himself, Forever 21 and Cheetos teamed up to recreate his famous shade-throwing shades, only for this version, they’ve slimmed down the former wayfarer/clubmaster design and opted instead for a lighter round-frame with a smoky tint.
There are plenty more men’s style to choose from, as well as a whole slew of womenswear, so if you’ve got a lady who loves her some Cheetos, it’s never too early to start stocking up on holiday gifts.
