Power dressing: Marcus Lemonis

The chairman and chief executive of Good Sam Enterprises says he is not afraid to wear anything

Lemonis, 39, is chairman and chief executive of Good Sam Enterprises and its subsidiary Camping World, which both specialise in motorhomes. The Lebanese-born American businessman and investor also recently debuted on CNBC with The Profit, a reality show about saving small businesses.

Jacket by Loro Piana

This jacket is in a lightweight seersucker that’s really good for travelling in; I fly some 250,000 miles a year. My summer wardrobe is mostly blues. I like navy because it’s elegant and not too morbid. I’m not afraid to wear anything – and the more different, the more I’m willing to wear it.

Shirt by Tom Ford

This is a classic white, high-collar shirt with a two-button neck closure. The high collar looks great with or without a tie. I keep my sleeves a tad longer because I like to see the cuffs. I only wear white dress shirts; I’m a big believer that a white shirt is a significant sign of professionalism.

Trousers by Brioni

I typically wear Brioni two-piece suits for their elegance. Brioni trousers fit me well; I can buy them straight off the rack. Recently I started to wear flat-fronted styles; I love the construction and they always wear well.

Belt by Hermès

I wear this belt a lot; I treat the buckle like a piece of jewellery. It’s fun and a conversation starter. I’ve been told it’s a bit flashy – to which I respond, “Good, so get used to it.”

Shoes by Gucci

I typically wear a smart shoe, even with jeans. These “monk straps” are in navy, and are hard to find. People always comment on my shoes. A banker told me never to wear blue shoes because they looked silly; since then, I’ve made it a point to wear navy shoes.

Bow tie by Tom Ford

I collect bow ties – they are a great icebreaker. I always wear them to a dressy event – black tie or not. It’s nice to stand out in a sea of ties.
