The Kid Laroi is the latest star to bring ‘eshay’ fashion to Hollywood after Euphoria actor Jacob Elordi sported a similar style in Byron Bay

The Kid Laroi is one of the biggest rappers in the world right now.

And the 18-year-old Australian musician proved he’s still a Sydney boy at heart on Tuesday when he jokingly referred to himself as “eshay” on Instagram Stories.

The Stay hitmaker, real name Charlton Howard, shared a photo of himself wearing a pair of Nike sneakers, which he simply captioned, “Eshay.”

An ‘eshay’ is the Australian equivalent of a British chav. Eshays like to wear bucket hats and fanny packs, and have been known to hang around train stations.

Their favorite fashion is trendy sports brands like Nike and Tommy Hilfiger.

Laroi, who was born in Waterloo but now lives in Los Angeles, is actually the furthest thing from an eshay, having achieved worldwide fame and fortune with his music.

It comes after Jacob Elordi, 24, sported eshay fashion himself in a video that was widely shared on TikTok in January.

Fans went wild over how the ‘Australian’ actor – who plays American Nate Jacobs in the hit series Euphoria – looked in the video.

Footage showed Jacob sporting a slung fanny pack, baggy shirt and cream bucket hat, while chatting with a friend in Byron Bay.

‘Okay, but why is he an eshay?’ one fan commented below the video, while another added: ‘A true Aussie at heart’.

“HE LOOKS SO AUSTRALIAN IN THIS I CRY,” commented a third, while a fourth wrote: “He’s so Australian I can’t.”

Jacob, originally from Queensland, splits his time between Los Angeles and Australia, and recently bought a house in Byron.
