So Aidan Is Back… But What’s Behind His Belted Belstaff Outlet?

The men of Sex and the City haven’t fared so well in the reboot, have they? Mr Big is dead, Steve has been dumped, and new male characters on the scene have had to contend with bouts of public projectile vomiting. 

But in contrast to Peloton’s free-falling share price following Carrie’s husband’s cardiac arrest, Aidan’s stock appears to be up. Almost two years after rumours of a comeback for our favourite carpenter originally swirled in April 2021 – when actor John Corbett claimed in an interview, “I’m going to do the show” – pictures from the set of And Just Like That season 2 have confirmed that Aidan will be appearing. And while he is holding hands with Carrie again, he’s not wearing his old wardrobe of worn-in denim, Western shirts and scuffed suede jackets – Sex and the City’s most-worshipped woodworker has had a glow-up.

Aidan must be delighted that Carrie has finally invested in some countryside-friendly Birkenstocks, but judging from his own AJLT debut outfit – a belted Belstaff jacket and smart plum trousers – he appears to have swapped the rugged woodland of Suffern, New York, for a wardrobe better suited to the pruned environs of Soho Farmhouse. Did Aidan retreat to the Cotswolds over the pandemic?  Is he now selling rustic wooden furniture to boutique hotels? Can you purchase his picnic benches at ABC Carpet & Home? He’s certainly not sanding love seats by hand anymore. 

Ironically, we can see more of Mr Big than old school Aidan in that belted Belstaff. He was a man more preoccupied by heritage labels and savoir faire, sure to have a thing for finely-crafted field jackets. Aidan of old, meanwhile, was more interested in flea market finds, checked shirts stained with wood oil, Levi’s 501s weathered in his workshop, chunky silver and turquoise rings made by upstate artisans. Perhaps Aidan 2.0 has a chest of drawers in his bedroom lined with Sea Island Cotton Sunspel tees and Pantherella cashmere socks? Has he cashed in his company so he can splurge on Brunello Cucinelli? Has he bought Carrie a pair of Chanel wellies?

Time will tell what else is sequestered in Aidan’s (wooden and hand-carved) wardrobe, and whether Carrie is going to cheat on fashion with furniture once more.  One thing we can be certain of as And Just Like That rolls back round? This version of Aidan looks a lot less likely to be found flailing around in the mud.
