Suit jacket by Gucci
The one thing I’ve learnt with suits is that fit is everything. My girlfriend works for Gucci so I tend to get many of my suits from her and they fit me well. I like a slim cut with thin lapels, and a tighter, shorter jacket than I used to wear. I find that the best on-air look is a dark suit, preferably navy, paired with one bold element that is either a colourful shirt or a strong tie, but never both.
Shirt by John Varvatos
Right now I am wearing shirts by John Varvatos that have narrow, spread collars that work well with thin ties. Most of my shirts are white but I do have some lighter blues as well as some grey-purple hues.
Jeans by Mossimo
If I’m dressing casually and I won’t be on air, I’ll opt for a pair of jeans with a tailored suit jacket. I like this pair from Mossimo because of their darker wash. If I do end up having a business meeting, they are a bit more formal than lighter coloured jeans and work well in a variety of settings.
Tie by Paul Smith
If I’m anchoring, then I try not to take too many risks and will play it safe with a subdued, solid tie. If I am doing analysis, I might choose an edgier, thinner tie.
Watch by Tourneau
I have several watches but my go-to is a traditional Tourneau with a black leather band and a simple silver and white face. It is fairly formal and works well whether I’m presenting the news or relaxing at the weekends.
Trainers by Converse
If I am in a situation where you can’t see my feet – behind the news desk, for example – I will pair my suit with vintage Converse or Nike trainers. If I am presenting on Good Morning America and my feet are visible, I wear a pair of pointed-toe, black leather shoes by Burberry.
