Awesome Totally Awesome Jonah Hill Tye Dye

You Can Basically Dress Like Jonah Hill

By Olivia Hill

When my editor sent me a link to High Snobiety’s article on Jonah Hill’s obsession with Tye Dye, I was excited—I had just covered a similar piece on Shia LaBeouf and why I believed sorority girls and basic betches influenced his style. However, when I opened the link and scrolled through the article, I was underwhelmed. It felt like High Snobiety was really reaching to make a point that Hill had become a fashion guru just for his taste in random ink display. When really, if you boil it down—the dude just owns tye dye shirts. He probably thinks they’re funny, a bit ironic, but most importantly: comfortable as hell. There’s no master plan behind his pairing “shirts and shorts,” that’s just a dude reaching in his closet (read: pile of clothes on the floor) when he knows there’s no woman around to impress. Or guy to impress. Or non-binary figure. Jesus, 2018 is an exhausting year as a writer—luckily I get paid per word, so to all Social Justice Warriors: keep creation of all-inclusive language flowing!

If I had to spend time dissecting Jonah Hill’s psyche and career trajectory through his choice in bright t-shirts, I’m sure it would yield the same non-exciting result as his colorful outfits. Basically, I’d appearto be hard at work to make a profound point only to  fall short when you realize, “huh, all that must’ve been pretty easy to put together.” So rather than dive deeper into this, let me share with you the best places to find goods to get yourself dressed like your favorite dick-drawing character actor from Superbad.

The Venice Beach Boardwalk

Yes, the whole boardwalk. I couldn’t even recommend a store—or tent—that I like best. You’ll find tye dye options at most of these locations. They’ll be located right next to the incense that smells like pure musk and crystals to heal your broken spirit, you crazy dream chaser, you.

Goodwill / Salvation Army

If you’re not residing in Los Angeles because you’ve realized the cost of living shouldn’t be your first-born child, don’t assume you can’t rock Hill’s style. I’m sure there’s a thrift store near you. While you usually stop in because you assume they couldn’t live with out your donations, the reality is these stores would love for you to buy something. I had a wonderful boss named Paula who nicknamed it “Salvation Armani” and as much as I’d giggle at everything she said, she wasn’t wrong. There are some solid steals in these stores, so take a page from Macklemore’s mantra, and save money by purchasing your tye-dye from here. Besides, is it really even true tye dye if a designer name can print the same“random” blotches on all of their stock? (And then mark it up 300% mind you.)

Michael’s (The Craft Store)

Not happy with anything you’re seeing on the boardwalk or in the thrift stores? THEN DO IT YOURSELF, DAMMIT! My parents always had the loving, yet extremely passive aggressive saying, “if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.” Believe me, this has probably screwed up my ability to trust others with simple tasks for the rest of my life, but in this case it makes a good point. Dye kits are verycheap, and come with instructions on how to get different looks. It’s also pretty bad ass to respond to compliments on your clothing with a hair flip and a, “thanks, I made it myself.”
