We mentioned WME agent Andrew Weitz in our March 29th print issue story, "Secrets of Hollywood's Best Dressed Male Agents," in which writer Laurie Pike said that the ten percenter "looked less like a WME talent agent and more like a GQ editor fresh off the front row at Paris Men’s Fashion Week."
Apparently menswear e-tailer Mr Porter.com took notice, as it has tapped Weitz to star in a new short video about his stylish ways. Part of a series titled, "The Way I Dress," the clip shows Weitz in his glass-walled bedroom as he dappers up for a day at the office.
"I'm known in Los Angeles and the entertainment community as an impeccable dresser," the Philadelphia native, who counts Rob Lowe and Ricky Gervais as clients, says in the clip.
He goes on to discuss his pocket squares, love of tassel shoes and how everyone always tells him that he's "not a typical agent."
As Weitz prepares for a day of deals at his Beverly Hills office, he puts on a selection of Mr Porter.com's gentlemanly accouterment including a pink Brioni fitted button down and Alexander McQueen checked blazer before using a stag antler shoehorn to slip on a pair of brown suede penny loafers by John Lobb, the bespoke bootmaker whose Aston Martin collaborative capsule collection launched last spring. Weitz finishes off his polished look with a Bottega Veneta briefcase made from the brand's signature woven leather, and out the door he goes. But not before reminding viewers of this very important mantra:
"Style, Confidence, Success."
Spoken like a true agent — "typical" or not.
