Worn Out Wednesday – Brent Lamberti

worn out wednesday brent lamberti

Today we meet Brent Lamberti, the National Brand Ambassador for elit by Stolichnaya.

I was born and raised on the North Shore of Long Island. I always dreamed of coming into the city as a kid. When I got my first job in Manhattan I was 18. Up until that point I was like most other suburban kids that dressed from their local malls. When I got to New York City I was so inspired by all the different unique looks and styles around me. You could get away with anything and no one would judge you. Around the age of 20 I started bartending. 15 years later I’m the National Brand Ambassador for elit by Stolichnaya Vodka.

Working on elit there is a definite feeling I try to exude with my wardrobe, classic with an understated modern twist.  elit is the world’s first luxury vodka so I keep it classy, but I also don’t want to make it stuffy. Vodka has an energy to it.

As for my personal style:

Jeans: AG Graduate

Shirts: Turnbull & Asser. If they’re good enough for James Bond, they’re good enough for me.

Pants: John Varvatos Cash Trousers, dressy enough for meetings, but sporty enough to run around town with them all day.

Suits: SuitSupply. I own 10 suits from them. They’re a very fashion forward brand with European flair at a reasonable price.

Shoes: Converse II (all colors) Keeping it classic.

Accessories: The Atlantic Fedora from Pork Pie Hatters on E.9th St NYC, Nixon Time Teller Acetate in Tortoise, Miansai necklace

Outerwear: All Saints Mahler Coat, Stutterheim Raincoat

Favorite Cologne: I don’t wear cologne but I do love my Sandalwood after shave from The Art of the Shaving.

Your favorite App: United Airlines (I travel a lot!)

Favorite piece of technology: My iPhone. It’s my key to any city.

Next tech purchase: I’d really love to get a wireless Sonos speaker system for my home.
