Worn Out Wednesday – Wolfgang Novogratz

worn out wednesday wolfgang novogratz

Today we speak to basketball player, model and actor, Wolfgang Novogratz.

The oldest of 7, Wolfgang Novogratz was born and raised in New York City by designers, Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Wolfgang and his family recently moved to Los Angeles, where he currently resides. Although technically an LA resident – Wolfgang is a New Yorker at heart, which is where most of his style emanates. Growing up in downtown Manhattan, Wolfgang’s style is a mix of street style and his love of classic movies. Some of his style icons include Warren Beatty and Robert Redford.

In addition to his love for fashion, Wolfgang has been playing competitive basketball since he was 7 years old. He started on the varsity team as an 8th grader, as well as running point on his AAU team, which later won a National AAU Title. He is currently an 18-year-old senior at Harvard Westlake, where he is ranked one of the top point guards in the country. He is also a model and actor – he recently wrapped production on his first short film and will be co-starring with his family in a new series out this spring and the Novogratz series “The Castle Next Door – The Novogratz Family Takes Hollywood,” launched this morning so check it out here

As for his personal style:

Jeans: Have to be my Levis 501s.

Shirts: You can’t go wrong with a white Calvin Klein t-shirt or a nice vintage t-shirt from the Melrose Flea Market. As far as dress shirts go, I like Comme des Garcons.

Pants: Prada.

Suits: My dad has great taste, so I “borrow” his Yohji Yamamoto Suits when the occasion arises.

Shoes: I am into shoes. On the court, I love Kobe’s. Off the court and around town, I rock Rick Owens, Vans, Chuck Taylors, Stan Smith and Adidas.

Accessories: I love UNDRCRWN knit hats and a good baseball cap.

Outerwear: I don’t really do parkas or trenches in LA, but when it comes to jackets, it has to be Gucci, Fred Perry or Top Man.

Favorite Cologne: Ivory Soap.

Your favorite App: Uber.

Favorite piece of technology: My iPhone.

Next tech purchase: iPhone 7.

HEYDUDE Slip-On Shoes Are So Comfortable You Won’t Want to Wear Anything Else

As a brand, HEYDUDE is sweeping the nation. Becoming more and more popular with just about every age, and people from every walk of life -- it's the fastest-growing footwear brand in the U.S. and the company will surpass $1B in value real soon. There's a good reason for it. HEYDUDEs are stylish, super comfortable, convenient, and once you try them, you'll fall in love. To understand why, we have to backtrack a little bit.

In warmer weather, flip-flops and sandals are the go-to, not just because they keep your feet cool and open, but also because they're so convenient to put on. You just have to slide your feet right in and off you go. They're not at all stylish, however, and you wouldn't want to wear them with certain outfits. HEYDUDEs fix that problem, and so much more. Known as some of the "cushiest, comfiest, airiest, featheriest, lightest shoes on Earth," these words of praise still don't do these shoes justice. You might be wondering, what makes them so comfortable? What kinds of styles do they offer? We're going to explore precisely that.

Arm with Rolex Submariner on it

Whether you watch movies, listen to music, or read books, you have likely heard that Rolex watches are the pinnacle of stylish luxury in men's watches. Gorden Gecko sported a Rolex when he became the picture of wealth on Wall Street. Elvis Presley got one of only 100 Rolex King Midas watches for selling out the Houston Astrodome for six straight days. The brand has always been the gold standard in men's luxury.

However, that may not be the case any longer, as the brand seems to be losing its grip on the watch pyramid of superiority.
