Worn Out Wednesday – Oliver Gold


Today we speak to real estate guru Oliver Gold.

I was born and raised in New York City, so going into real estate here was a natural path to follow. I work as a real estate agent for Douglas Elliman. My partner, Helen Arden and I specialize in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and primarily focus on sales.

Before going into real estate, my wife and I bought apartments in the city, fixed them up and sold them. Usually I would intend to stay in one place, but after fixing a place up and making it perfect for us to live in, my wife would always prefer to move on to the next project. It keeps things exciting.

In terms of fashion, I know what I like, but I’m pretty severely colorblind, so my wife does all the shopping for me. And she lays out my outfits in the morning. She leaves really early for work and on the days she forgets, I end up texting her photos of outfit choices. When she can’t be reached I typically panic, then end up sticking with black, white and grey.

As for his personal style:

Jeans: The Jean Shop

Shirts: Paul Smith and Ted Baker, guess I like the English designers

Pants: Zara, my wife’s favorite place to shop for me

Suits: Jil Sander and Ted Baker

Shoes: I always prefer my New Balance but when I have to wear shoes, Paul Smith

Accessories: I love watches. I don’t need to see colors to decide between my Panerai Luminor Submersible and Rolex Datejust.

Outerwear: Canada Goose – The only thing that can keep you warm in NYC.

Favorite Cologne: Acqua di Parma Blue Mediterraneo or Givenchy Gentlemen Only – I have a good friend at LVMH. He always makes sure I have the best colognes and aftershaves.

Your favorite App: Pager – I let the doctor come to me. I have a waiting phobia.

Favorite piece of technology: Sonos Playbar

Next tech purchase: Apple TV
