Worn Out Wednesday – Eneuri Acosta

Today we speak to Cadillac’s Lifestyle and Luxury Communications Manager, Eneuri Acosta:

I was born in the Dominican Republic, but grew up in New Jersey. I’ve been a car fanatic for as long as I can remember, and while the average consumer buys a new car once every ten years I’ve had eight different cars in the 15 years I’ve been driving. Right now I drive a black-on-black Cadillac ATS, and it is absolutely stunning. So it’s only fitting that I get to spend my days talking about cars for a living.

I’ve been with/around GM since about 2006. I started on the agency side, eventually moving to Detroit to support Cadillac communications. These days, I manage lifestyle communications for the brand (including our forays in fashion), helping elevate the storied 112-year-old company and re-introducing it to those who may not be aware of how great our cars are.

Most recently we announced the relocation of our global headquarters to New York City (where I am based now), which will allow us to truly immerse in the culture and lifestyle of the luxury consumer and take our brand to the next level. Although we are 112 years old, we have the energy of a startup and are very optimistic about what the future holds for Cadillac!

As for Eneuri’s personal style:

Jeans: Jeans are the one area of my wardrobe that I don’t feel the need to spend too much on. I really like Uniqlo’s slim fit straight jeans and Bonobos’s slim tailored jeans. Not overly expensive, fit great and hard to tell the difference between these choices and a pair of $300 jeans.

Shirts: A combination of Massimo Dutti, Suit Supply and custom made.

Pants: I really like the tailoring of Club Monaco’s Davis and Connor pants these days.

Suits: When it is not custom, my absolute go-to is Suit Supply. I find that their suits are made for a more athletic build so they fit me more naturally off the rack. I really like their fabric options and the variety of styles, from double-breasted to three-piece.

Shoes: My favorite shoe is the dark brown, wing-tip Platers Christian Louboutin. They are incredibly sleek and the design of the shoe is classic. Looks great with a well-tailored suit. For sneakers, I really liked the Converse x Maison Martin Margiela collaboration. I spent the better part of the summer in their low-top blue Jack Purcell version.

Watches: Vintage watches are my weak spot and it is turning into quite the unsustainable hobby! There are just so many beautiful watches, but my everyday piece right now is a stainless steel 1992 Audemars Piguet Huitieme, which I searched nearly two years for. The watch is very unassuming but has terrific details (blue hands and an under-the-crystal “Cyclops eye” for the date.)

Hats: I recently embraced the wool fedora over the traditional beanie for the cold winter months. Stetson and Scala are my favorites, but I also like Goorin Bros. quite a bit.

Accessories: For lapel pins, I really like byelias.com and the neat things they do with the common flower pin. For everything else (pocket squares, suspenders, etc.) the Fine and Dandy Shop is my go-to.

Top coat: Wool Theory trench in grey or navy. I’ve had both for a couple years now and they still look great.

Leather jacket: I recently got into motorcycle riding and picked up a Schott 619 naked brown perfecto…and it is exactly that; perfect. Looks great on and off the bike.

Favorite Cologne: Tom Ford Noir
