Harvey Specter Style Breakdown
[0:00:00] When I got here, I dominated. People thought I worked a hundred hours a
day. Now, no matter what time I show up, people
don’t question my ability to get the job done. Get it through your head, first impressions
matter. Gentlemen, in today’s video, how to dress
like Harvey Specter. [Music]
Harvey Specter, you guys have been asking me to do a video on his style, how he dresses
how he dominates a room for a long time, so here it is guys. Starting this off, the first thing, suits. Now, that’s the name of the show, but Harvey
Specter has a lot of them and he wears them. That’s the key if some of you guys have great-looking
suits in your wardrobe and what — what happens to those suits? They gather dust, they get eaten by moths. You don’t actually wear them. If you want to show up, if you want to dominate
a room, you’ve got to actually wear the clothing. Every time we see this character, he is bringing
his A-game. And in fact, whenever his — he doesn’t have
a dimple in his tie, what happens? All of a sudden, other characters pick up
something must be wrong. He has set the standard so high. Now, let’s talk specifically about his suits. So, what do we notice? First off, the fit. I’ve talked about how fit is king. Harvey Specter nails it from the shoulder
points to the fit and the chest to the length of the jacket to the fit of his trousers. He has a well-built body and he shows it off
by wearing clothing that works for him. Now, the style is going to be more British
style where we’re going to see padding in the shoulders, we’re going to see padding
in the chest. It really just gives him that masculine V.
He looks very strong. He looks like someone you don’t want to mess
with and you don’t want to mess with Harvey. And he sends this signal when he walks into
a room and people don’t even know him simply by the way he is wearing the suit. Now, let’s talk about the colors. So, we see dark grays, we see overall just
dark colors in general. What is that — why go with darker colors? Because they are perceived as more formal,
stronger, more dominant. Keeps everything very business everything
very dark. But, notice the lapels, he goes for peak lapels. I’ve got a notch lapel right here, very common. Peak lapels are going to be less common. And where we see peak lapels traditionally? On black-tie, double-breasted suits, but he
brings them into single breasted suits. It makes it just a little bit more formal
helps him stand out from the crowd and continues to build up his chest area and his shoulders. Other things we noticed about his jackets,
he doesn’t really have a whole lot of ticket pockets. He doesn’t go for that flashy look. Instead, he goes for the double vent on the
back which is more of the British style. But, he’s got little details like the stitching
on the buttons which to me saying, you know this isn’t — it was probably made by a custom
tailor or definitely from a higher-end place, but he pays attention to those small details. Now, when we look he’s usually got four buttons
right here on the sleeves. Again, most of his jackets single breasted
two buttons. I haven’t really seen any three buttons. He will occasionally bring in a vest, so what
we see is a three-button suit. Now, when we get down to his trousers, he’s
going for flat front trousers, so no pleats on those. Now, and his — when we get down to the cuffs,
he has no cuffs, but overall we’ve got a slim cut. Again, this works for his build, he’s got
a very toned body he’s got, you know, he’s just in great shape and he shows it off. And he lets basically this send the signal
when he walks in the room that he is going to dominate. Pop quiz for you suit fans. Okay. What’s the most expensive item that Harvey
has ever worn on set? What do you think some of the suits, some
of the shoes? The answer is actually a wristwatch that he
wore in season one. It was a Patek Phillipe 5004P platinum perpetual
calendar split-second chronograph watch. Guys, this sells used for $270,000. Oh, yeah, I guess you could buy it brand-new
for $350,000. Yes, he wears a very expensive watch. Now, they did an interview and come to find
out he thinks it was actually a fake, it was with the prop department. Now, I’m not going to recommend that you wear
a fake watch, I would rather you buy a watch that you’re going to love that you’re going
to enjoy. And, guys guess what? Vincero, the paid sponsor of today’s video,
I want you to go check out their watches. Why do I love them? Why am I bringing them up now? Because guys these watches look amazing and
for the price you are getting a great watch. These look like thousand-dollar watches. You’re going to find you pay a fraction of
that. For over two years, I’ve been working with
this company, they’re a great company. You guys write me back I’ve had — I have
met people in person who have told me, Antonio, I grabbed one of those watches and I love
it. It’s just such a nice — just a nice looking
watch. I would love for you and I would love to have
a $10,000, a $20,000, a $350,000 watch, but I know a lot of you up and coming Harvey Specters,
you can’t maybe afford that, but you want to watch that still looks great that looks
amazing one that actually keeps great time has a lot of cool features and that’s what
Vincero has. So, guys, go check them out. I’m going to link to them down in the description. There’s a great discount code. A good company I’ve been with for a long time. [0:04:50]
All right, guys, so let’s have a little fun. So, they sent me some extra watches as always
and I want to send them your way. But, to get a watch, what you have to do is
go down and check out their website. Let me know the exact details on the watch
and with what Harvey Specter outfit you’re going to wear it with. Be – be descriptive. Tell me in exacting detail because I want
to send some watches your way. Again, guys, the link down in the description. Use that discount code. If you see something you really want. I can tell you I love this new metal band
watch really easy to change it out. This one with the black leather the black
face just beautiful. Go check them out guys. Great company. Next up, Harvey Specter’s shirts. So, what do we notice about his shirts? That they’re almost always white. Nothing wrong with white, guys. It is a blank canvas which everything else
can build off of. You’ve got enough complexity in your life,
what I would recommend if you wear suits quite a bit or you want to start wearing them, just
start off with five to ten white shirts. Now, you can change them up, I’m not saying
you got to get the exact same white shirt. You can go with different color styles. In fact, when we see Harvey Specter, he has
a few different color styles. Now, with his cuffs, what do we notice? That he has barreled cuffs most of the time,
but he also likes French cuffs. And he’s going to bring in small metal cufflinks,
nothing really fancy, but something that definitely sends the signal. This guy know he is the man. Now, you can change up and go with a wide
variety of cuffs with those ten shirts as I was talking about. You can change out some of the colors. Such an easy way to quickly build up a very
formal, but very sharp looking wardrobe. So, when I was talking about shirt colors,
I was talking about that spread collar. Why go for a spread? Because it allows you to put in a large necktie
knot. Harvey loves the full Windsor. Now, I’ve only got a half Windsor here because,
hey, it suits my body type and I didn’t want to go overboard here. But, a half Windsor, a full Windsor, a large
knot with the right necktie. Now, what do you notice about Harvey’s neckties? They are always silk. He doesn’t go for any of that wool or any
of that knitted stuff. He doesn’t want no casual ties. This guy is going straight silk. And we’re not talking imitation silk here,
go for the real thing. Look for a sevenfold necktie look for something
that is going to be of higher quality. If you can’t afford that level at this point,
well, then just go with the best that you can find. But at the end of the day, silk is going to
be the most formal. Now, he usually goes for solid colors, we’re
seeing a dark purple, the color of kings. We’re going to see our navies, we’re going
to see blacks, so you can go for these darker colors. What you want to avoid is something that’s
going to be silk, but way too casual. Those are going to be lighter color ties,
those are going to be ones with really bright colors with larger patterns, those are going
to be much more casual. Now, let’s talk about Harvey Specter’s shoes. So, is this is where I feel the costume design
department kind of fell down. They know that most of the time the shoes
are not even going to be seen. So whenever we do see the shoes they’re going
to be oftentimes in pictures, what do we see? He just goes for a basic black cap toe Oxford. Hey, it works when well-shined. It’s classic, works with everything. I do find that Harvey gears towards black. He also brings in some dark brown. I would love to see him in oxblood. Now, when he’s bringing in the brown, we see
oftentimes a brogue. He doesn’t really get super crazy with his
shoes and this is an area where I think you could outshine Harvey Specter. You can have fun with your shoes. You can go with a two-tone, maybe go for a
double monk strap, maybe go for a whole cut that’s got a little bit of a medallion right
there on the toe. Have fun with your footwear, guys. Next up, let’s talk about Harvey Specter’s
hair. So, there was an early interview that Gabriel
Macht did talking about how, okay, they took some cues from Gregory Peck from Cary Grant,
but they wanted to modernize it they wanted to change things up. Now, that was early in season one. What we saw happened in season 2, season 3
is that his hair started to evolve. His hair, it became more vertical, but it
still had a strict and structured feel to it. We see a tight side part on the left hand
side with a subtle pompadour in the front. To get this look, you need the sides to be
cut short, not buzzed just cut short with some length on the top. Now, to keep it in place, you want to run
through it a strong hold gel or a pomade, something that basically is just going to
keep that longer hair in place. If necessary, use the right brush maybe use
a blow dryer. But at the end of the day, what you’re looking
for is a bit of volume there on top, something that isn’t going to get too long something
that’s not too short something that gives a modern business look. And let’s not forget the pocket square. So, Harvey Specter wears a simple presidential
fold with a white linen or cotton pocket square. We’ll occasionally see gray as well, but
he’s not going to bring in a big paisley or something that has, you know, just bright
colors and stuff it in there and have it going all over the place, that would be distracting. Harvey Specter knows that he wants to keep
it very simple to the point and keep it all about business. All right. So, those are some great tips on how to dress
like Harvey Specter, but understand they mean nothing if you are not the type of man that
can actually pull off this look. Who is that type of man? Well, you need to be a man of integrity, you
need to be a man of your word, you need to be a man who every day is working harder to
become the best him that is looking around to raise and to help lift up others. That’s what I like about Harvey Specter. He’s actually a good character. Yes, he may come off as arrogant as brash
as someone that’s egotistical. Yes, I get that. But, when it comes down to it, he’s actually
a good person who actually has strong feelings and protects and takes care of those around
them. I think that men at the end of the day, we
need more leaders like that. They’re a good person trying to improve, you
know, just the world in general. [0:10:15]

  2. Personnaly, I would rock the Bellwether Steel Watch with the classic high-peak dark grey suit. A classic look, with a classic watch and ever-lasting style every guy should be able to rock I think. The chronograph feature makes it more professional and formal on the field, allowing to not only tell the time but also use it as a stopwatch… THANKS AGAIN for the amazing videos you make Antonio ! My favorite youtuber by faaaaaaar

  3. Thanks for the video, and for the heads-up on Thursday Boots. They look great! I can't believe those prices for a goodyear welted boot. That's awesome. The next boots I buy will be a dark brown chelsea and light brown chukka, and Thursday Boots had great looking versions of each of those. I wear a lot of suits and trouser/jacket combinations to work. The chelseas would work really well with my gray and blue suits. I also have a really light gray suit that I think the chukkas would look pretty awesome with. They would work with some of the sport coat/trouser combinations I wear (brown, blue, and charcoal coats with khaki and grey trousers).

  4. I don't know if you're still giving watches away… but I would choose the blue Kairos. And I would wear this with the pinstriped suit (shown at TC 2:46 & 6:01) bc the blue face of the watch will match the suit, but I would choose a tan strap that totally clashes with the outfit.
    WHY????
    Because that color that doesn't match will be off kilter more. An imbalance will be created at the point of "TIME". People will be talking with Mr. Spectre but the watch will be in the back of their minds. "TIME" will be hovering over their interactions with him, and thus they will be less apt to waste it!

  5. Sorry to disagree, An extremely high quality tie need not be multi fold. To me they mean little, but I respect your work on this channel, and disagree respectfully and in good spirit. All the best!

  6. I would choose the Vincero Rose Gold Chrono watch. It would fit with any of Harveys suits and personality since I think this watch shows boldness and confidence.

  7. I would probably do a dark grey suit, similar style but maybe more color like a dark red patterned tie with ox blood shoes (two toe with a little medallion) but a blue/brown chrono S vincero watch. White Presidential style pocket square, Grey socks, longer hair pushed back, white dress shirt but with French cuffs with silver and red cuff links (slightly different red from tie). Maybe throw in a silver ring with a jet stone to add some black. Let me know what you guys think or how you would change it.

  8. Thank you for this video. My wife and I love suits and especially Harvey Specter. I wear suits every day but I don’t pretend to look as good as him.

  9. From the Vincero Collective, I am quite drawn to the Bellweather Silver and White watch, which I think is rather nautical. I would pair it with my navy blue sport coat, crisp white oxford, grey fitted slacks and black double monks or loafers. At first i thought about oxblood double monks, but then i decided the added color of the shoes and belt would detract from the blue strap of the watch. A crisp white pocket square would be nice with a tie, but i think even better would be no tie and a blue and white patterned pocket square in a more casually arranged manner.

  10. Suits has done well to make Harvey seem more fit than he is lol.

    Take a look at his boxing scenes especially the one with tanner. He's actually a little chubby. Don't believe me? Check Macht's IG

  11. The Bellwether Silver & Blue with a dark blue suit, notched lapel, white shirt with french cuffs and silver cuff links, light blue tie with silver tie bar and white pocket square. That watch would complete the outfit.

  12. You literally comment on his suits without knowledge that he is wearing classic Tom Ford suits? This is like the most obvious thing that as someone who is into mens fashion should know

  13. In reference to 3:20 the correct answer is indeed his watch. But lets not leave out the all-time classic, most expensive item he owns (Ferrari 365 GTS4).

  14. Hi Antonio. I would love a video "Dress like Ward Meachum" from the Marvel Iron Fist. Keep up the good work, your videos are very inspiring. Thank you for doing this.

  15. How to NOT dress like Harvey Specter: Wear a Vincero watch lol. Anyone who says they look and feel like a 1000$ watch is either lying or they have never handled a fine watch. They look just like all the other 100$ fashion brands on the market. It's like recommending a suit from Zara or H&M to anyone trying to dress like Harvey.

  16. Antonio you could do a video like this about Mike Ross. He is a young lawyer and that could be a great inspiration to the young people that are starting their carrear.

  17. Antonio…you killed the Harvey impression in the opening of the video. How you quoted him was spot on and your suit was very reminiscent of how Harvey dresses

  18. Everything, but the suggested shoes. Horrible ones. They look “hipsterish” enough to be away from them. Nothing better than classic black shoes that keep any attention away. These are the real suit shoes.

  19. All of his suits have ticket pockets. He also has 5 buttons on his sleeves for the Tom Ford look, and he has been seen with 3 button suits, or 2.5.

  20. I just watched this video and it's cool. Could you do a suit review of Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother?

  21. Dude, NO brogue in formal business wear. I'm surprised to hear a man of Real Man Real Style stature suggest brogue-ing in business wear… WHEW!

  22. Our whole world has gotten cheapened with bad taste: I remember when I first went to London in 1980, even bus drivers there wore suits! Now they don't anymore. Men really look best in suits.

  23. In my opinion the cut and style of a British suit is far more appealing than the likes of an Italian or American suit. I like the Italian suits also but for me, an American style seems to be an exaggerated relaxed fit. A little too big almost. But that’s just my opinion.

  24. hey Antonio I just got a new job and a new suit how ever I was wandering if you can do a video on how to dress like billy russo from marvels/netflix the punisher any tips for business attire would be great and thank you for your service former spc. carney

  25. Bell Weather white face with weathered brown bands and I would wear it with a midnight striped suit with wide peak lapels like Harvey. I usually use a slim peak.

  26. Vincero watch? umm…. no thank you…. It's like wanting a Ferrari but you can afford an Armani 42 watch… You'd better off wearing a Swatch plain and simple or wear a nice discrete bracelet. All in all, wear like Italians do 🙂 Nice video

  27. If you want a great looking good quality watch that holds value, you don't want a modern quartz. You want something like a Nomos Club
