Worn Out Wednesday- Nick Thomas

worn wednesday nick thomas
This week we spoke to Real Estate raconteur Nick Thomas about his personal style:

I’ve been involved in the southern California real estate business for as long as I can remember.  Ive always had either a work belt  or a suit on. While I concentrate mainly on high end residential sales, I am currently in the process of buying a few mid century modern properties and bringing them back to their original glory. I really enjoy the creative outlet that I get from remodeling/restoring properties that represent California so well.

As for my style, here it goes:

Jeans: APC New Cure, I have a few of these all at different stages of fadedness.

Shirts: I have my formal shirting custom made by various tailors, for casual wovens I like Acne, APC and Odin’s  shirts.

Shorts: When I’m on the beach it is always Saturdays board shorts.

Pants:  Unis skinny Gio. For me there are no other chinos that fits as well as the Unis pant. Plus they are made in the USA.

Suits: I have mine custom made by a local tailor for the best fit!

Shoes: JM Weston Demi-chasse or anything Alden in cordovan.

Accessories: I just got these  illesteva shades designed by Lou Reed before his passing, RIP Lou Reed. I don’t have any jewelry besides a gold Rolex from the 40s. It doesn’t keep time that well but if it could speak I bet it’d have some stories to tell.

Outerwear:

I have a ton of vintage leather jackets: A-2 bombers as well as Schott motorcycle jackets and Barbour jackets. I love my dad’s sheepskin coat and I have a camel Brooks Brothers topcoat that I get to break out on trips to see family in London.

For California weather I stick to Barbour Bedale or Aspesis m65, Todd Snyder makes some great lightweight jackets as well.

Your favorite App: hands down Waze is my favorite app. Uber is a close second.

Favorite piece of technology: I have a Nest in my house, it’s great, especially in the summer, I can get the AC blasting on my way home so its nice and chilly when I arrive.

Next tech purchase:

i’M always breaking my iPhones, so probably another one!
