The slow, painful public execution of Chris Evans for the crime of not being Jeremy Clarkson continued apace this week, with viewers finding a new reason to dislike the Top Gear presenter.

Turns out that in addition to being hard of hearing and not nearly funny enough, the 50-year-old has had the audacity to wear the same outfit for five weeks in a row: specifically, a slightly tatty navy knit over a yellow t-shirt.

Actually, as the Metro pointed out, this isn't strictly true – for episode two Evans swapped the yellow t-shirt for a white one – but broadly speaking the disgruntled viewers are right.

What surprises us is that Top Gear fans – who spent the best part of twenty years idolising a man talking about 'super cars' while wearing cheap jeans, ill-fitting chequered shirts and bad leather jackets – are suddenly casting themselves as arbiters of style.

In any case, by wearing the same clothes all the time Evans is merely following a lead set by Steve Jobs, Stanley Kubrick and Andy Warhol – as Esquire has investigated before.

All power to him, we say. And at least it's not that green leather jacket.
