Hanes Solo: Harrison Ford loves his tees

In the latest issue of GQ, creative director Jim Moore shares that, for the first time in his memory, the person on the cover wore his own clothes for the photoshoot. "But Harrison Ford is a legend," Moore writes. "He's earned the right. So one day this summer, I found myself knocking on the door of his house in L.A. to see what was in his closet. Wearing the same T-shirt and jeans you see on the cover, he showed me inside and spent the next two hours trying on his favorite pieces." The T-shirt and jeans combo are, of course, an iconic look — fitting for Ford, an iconic actor. So it only makes sense he grace the magazine's latest cover wearing exactly what he loves: gray T-shirts. Ahead, see more instances of Ford's simple, yet classic look through the years.
