Dressing from the feet up with city professional Zachary Levesque

Your outfit is very dapper. Tell us about it.
Good suits are all about the tailoring. This is Hugo Boss. The tie and pocket square both came from Hermes in Boston; I thought they went well together. The shoes are Allen Edmonds. Can’t go wrong with a pair of Allen Edmonds shoes and some custom laces to match.

What’s your style inspiration?
I don’t really look to any person or genre in relation to my own personal style. I do have champagne taste when it comes to my wardrobe, but I also look for nonluxury brands as well. I like to wear different things and also tend to purchase articles that are more colorful. Accessories are also important. Standing out is a good thing, as long as it is for the right reason.

What is your go-to look for a casual spring outfit?
Jeans and a t-shirt can work in most places as long as you can dress it up. The fit of the outfit is key, along with a good shoe choice. In addition, the right accessories to “dress up” the outfit always help, like a watch or necklace.

You wear pink well. What advice could you give other men about wearing it?
Pink doesn’t necessarily work on all men, but with the right tone and outfit, any color has potential. I have always believed that a good dresser will always have an assortment of colors to wear, so until you try it, you will never know what looks work and what doesn’t.

Tell us how you build your outfits. Do you focus on an accessory and build it from there?
I think it all has to start with what you’re wearing on your feet: casual, dressy, sporty. From there, color becomes a huge factor. Your outfit can soon take shape after your shoe game is revealed!
