Toronto’s Best Dressed: Dan Levy

Toronto’s Best Dressed: Dan Levy

He’s got a hit TV show, his own eyewear line and a cocked-brow swagger that lets him get away with anything. So he wears what he wants—whether it’s wool joggers or a really great suit. We asked the actor about his sartorial inspirations (and regrets). Here’s what he said.

I’m influenced by…

Tokyo street style. There’s an ease to the way people wear their clothes there, no matter how crazy or simple the outfit.

The most important thing in a guy’s wardrobe is…

His shoes. They’re a litmus test for how his mind works. Start with a good shoe and everything else follows.

My favourite childhood outfit was…

Jean shorts and a white T-shirt. That was my uniform for basically all of elementary school. It’s still in rotation.

I paid an exorbitant sum for…

My Prada studded brogues. I was working at MTV at the time. It was close to a full paycheque.

My biggest bargain ever was…

A Saint Laurent military tuxedo jacket that I got on eBay for $200. It’s a $2,000 jacket.

I’ll never live down…

The gigantic frames I wore on MTV. They looked like clown glasses.
