This Publicist Is Most Comfortable in Vintage Loafers & Socks

Welcome to Style Diaries, a series where we research the physical manifestations of our closet tours IRL. We're asking friends and tastemakers to show us what they're *actually* wearing during the week and to provide a little insight into their thoughts on personal style.

“For me, it isn't just about the clothes, it’s about how I carry myself,” says publicist, music composer, and vintage-lover Chevy Wolf, “from the way I flick a cigarette to just the way I stand still.” His mother inspired this laissez-faire approach to dressing. “We didn't really have much money, so we kind of had to work with what we had,” the French-Haitian Wolf explains of his childhood. “But my mom has always just been a style reference because she was just so free with [fashion].” Today, that translates to a sense of style that skews minimal at first glance, but, to the trained eye, shamelessly references great movements in fashion history.

Standing at 6’3”, Wolf will wear a rough-and-tumble Canadian tuxedo but accessorize it with a vintage silk scarf and cowboy boots. A white oxford shirt is the most essential piece in the wardrobe in addition to his collection of old Lacoste. “High Lacoste,” he describes it. Naturally, a reverence for Louise Trotter, Lacoste’s former (cult-favorite) designer tracks. The two met on multiple occasions. And one time, she dubbed him the sock king via DM. This title rings true. (Picture a series of colorful UNIQLO socks sticking out of vintage loafers.) Discover more about Wolf’s Ralph-Lauren-meets-Louse-Trotter sense of style in five days of looks below.

“This coat is from Todd Patrick, one of my favorite clients. Super comfortable. Those are the Gucci Gazelles. I actually wanted the regular [Wales Bonner] ones but could not find them because of retail [shortages]. It's so annoying because I want all of them. I want all Wales Bonner shoes. I just ended up going with the Gucci ones because I also like having things nobody else has. Those Levi's are 501s. That’s a vintage France soccer tee, from when they won the championship.”

“This coat is actually my favorite coat. It's a vintage L.L. Bean. On the inside, there’s some deer and some fish—all sorts of animals. And the boots are Salter House—another brand I freaking love. I made the necklace myself.”

“So I am in New Orleans—I have an apartment here. There are a bunch of ranches and I love horseback riding. These are vintage cowboy boots I bought in New Orleans and a vintage denim jacket. Those are Levi’s 501s. Levi's 501s are the only Levi’s that should be on the market, in my opinion. They're just so good. Canadian tuxedos are always a go-to, as well.”

“Top and bottom are Todd Patrick. Honestly, they're a client, but they are one of my favorite luxury brands because the pieces just fit. It's rare you can find pieces for somebody my size that fit so comfortably.”
