Worn Out Wednesday – Adam Lefkowitz

worn wednesday

Today we speak to Adam Lefkowitz, Vice President of Merchanidsing & Business Development at Lividini & Co. 

Adam Lefkowitz is a born and raised New Yorker – he spent his childhood on Long Island and went to college in upstate New York where he studied to be a Meteorologist.

After college Adam pursued a career in fashion and was accepted into the training program at Saks Fifth Avenue where he worked in the buying office for nearly six years. Adam’s robust career as a buyer led him to Scoop NYC, West Elm and eventually Li & Fung where he served as the Director of Strategic Merchandising & Business Development.

Adam now works at a brand strategy company, Lividini & Co. as the Vice President of Merchandising & Business Development. There he helps brands develop collections and improve retail distribution.  Adam can be found on the weekends in his Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill hanging out at local cafes or in his backyard woodshop building custom furniture and cutting boards.

Jeans: I only wear raw denim. My last three pairs were the M3 from 3×1. I really like the process of breaking in raw denim to create a custom fit.

Shirts: To the office, I wear the J.Crew Ludlow shirt in a variety of colors. Dress shirts are all about fit, and when I find one that fits well, I tend to stick to it. Outside of the office my wardrobe staples are denim shirts from Acne and flannel shirts from Woolrich.

Pants: I only wear denim.

Suits: Dior suits fit me really well. I’m a big believer that if you can find something off the rack that fits great, go for it and buy multiples.

Shoes: I’m loving my new custom air force ones in all navy leather. For the office I recently got a pair of Long Branch Allen Edmonds boots that are hand made locally in the states – the rugged sole mixed with the classic wingtips are a nice balance.

Accessories: I only wear a Cartier Roadster GMT watch. I’m also known to layer my scarves in the winter with a thin cashmere scarf under a larger brushed wool scarf that are both from Barneys.

Outerwear: I like classic outerwear. In the winter I wear Loro Piana Icer Jacket. Its great for the weekend, but also just long enough to cover a blazer for the office. In the Spring and Fall, I wear the Barbour Barfield jacket.

Favorite Cologne: Chez Bond by Bond No. 9 – you know you have found the right cologne when people consistently ask what scent you are wearing.

Your favorite App: Uber – call me lazy, but I use Uber way too often

Favorite piece of technology: iPhone 6

Next tech purchase:  I want something that I haven’t heard about yet.
