Edgar Alvarez Barajas may be one of the most extra people at Input. Between his ardent soccer tweets, his sporadic-yet-sought-after praise on Slack, and his sneaker collection (and subsequent sneaker pics), he’s a character — but one we’ll miss nonetheless when he leaves Input for Nike.
Before he goes, we’re scrambling to get his lavish look.
Edgar is pretty faithful to his Balenciaga ripped jeans, but seeing as those are sold out — no doubt thanks to his influence — you can get a similar look with this equally luxe Gucci denim.
Nike Dunks may be what’s hot right now, but Edgar is a man of taste: He likes his sneakers to have meaning, not just blind hype. Slip on these Off-White Air Force 1s to achieve the same feeling — even better if your shoes are signed by legend Virgil Abloh, too.
Throw it back to Edgar’s emo days — as if they ever ended — with this black tee. Specially-tailored arms will keep the style from looking too basic, a cardinal sin in our editor’s book.
If you thought this list would include only one pair of sneakers, you may want to reevaluate who you’re dressing like. Go classic with these Cool Grey Jordan 11s, one of the last shoes worn on-court by Jordan himself.
There’s no better way to top off an outfit than with a plaid flannel shirt. Channel Edgar by layering the style with a black tee, ripped jeans, and some gold chains and rings.
A hoodie is an essential part of anyone’s closet, and if you’re Edgar, you’ll want a quality sweatshirt to throw on over any fit. This Balenciaga version boasts an ideal oversized fit and comes in our editor’s preferred color.
Edgar temporarily ditched NYC for LA, but we always knew he’d eventually come back. His dedication to the city is like no other: there’s rarely a moment where his head isn’t covered by Yankees caps or beanies.
