Nick Wooster is one of the most influential people in the world of men’s fashion. For the last 30 years, he has had in hands directly in almost every facet of the retail industry. From 1987 to 1993 he worked as a buyer for both Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman before leaving to be director of retail merchandising or Calvin Klein.  In 1995-1996 he served as the design director of the Polo Ralph Lauren brand and those are just some of his early achievements. Since then he has started his consulting agency working with Thom Browne and Gilt Group while also serving in executive roles for brands including Neiman Marcus, JCPenney, and Ella Moss.

We can honestly say that Wooster lent a heavy hand in crafting the fashion industry as we know it today. That being said today we highlight his personal style which we love due to its sense of elevated casual. As you will see below Wooster keep his facial hair finely groomed, is a fan of the short suit, and often wears finely tailored blazers which he often rolls up the sleeves to showcase his tattoos.
