Pitt, 58, was in Berlin on Tuesday for the film preview of “Bullet Train.” He decided to beat the heat in Germany, where temperature rose into the mid-90s, by wearing a brown skirt, matching jacket, a salmon button-up shirt and combat boots, People reported.

As for his accessories, the “Flight Club” star wore tortoise-framed sunglasses, a long gold necklace, an even longer silver chain and several rings, “Today” reported.

Pitt has always claimed he was not a fashion trendsetter, telling Esquire last year that, “If I have a style, it’s no style.”

“I like simplicity. I like the details in the stitching, the way it feels,” Pitt told the magazine. “If anything, that’s the only divining rod I have.”

It is not the first time Pitt has rocked a skirt in public. In 1999, while promoting “Fight Club” -- a film that investigates traditional masculinity -- Pitt wore five mini dresses in photographs accompanying a Rolling Stone interview, CNN reported.

According to British Vogue, Pitt, who was promoting his 2004 film “Troy,” stated that men would add skirts to their wardrobe.

When a reporter for The Associated Press asked Pitt on Tuesday why he chose his wardrobe for the “Bullet Train” premiere, he replied, “The breeze. The breeze,” according to E! Online.
