We sat down with ASOS’s VP of Public Relations, Kevin Fegansto hear his style secrets. Describing his role as “Cultural Interpreter and Brand Ambassador”, Kevin finds solitude on Virgin Atlantic’s LA to London long haul journey and counts Lanvin Loafers and Nike trainers in unexpected colors as his footwear staples.
You are always dressed to impress. What are the top 5 pieces you believe every man should own?
-Slim fit chinos in an assortment of colors – these are my go to for 9 months out of the year
- A slim fit Lacoste polo in every color
- Multiple trench coats – simple and effortless, but incredibly stylish when paired with almost every look
- Invisible socks – we all love the look of wearing no socks, but it can kill your shoes.
- A novelty button down or pant. At the moment, I’m obsessed with my new Acne tuxedo trousers and an ASOS polka dot SS shirt.
Who makes your go-to suit?
Acne, Filippa K, J.Lindeberg, COS. I tend to stick to the Scandinavian brands being 6’4. They cut for the taller, slim guys out there.
Who makes your daytime shoe?
At the moment, I’ve been wearing these Lanvin loafers with everything. A Nike trainer in unexpected color combinations feels like the new converse. Basic, yet stylish.
Favorite men’s shop in NYC?
Acne on Greene Street
Finish the sentence: Always _______
moisturize and have your slim fit chinos dry cleaned with a crease.
Finish the sentence: Never ________
wear badly tailored clothes. The tailor is your best friend. Sometimes I even get shirts re-designed (sleeves taken off, shortened, etc) to accommodate the look I’m trying to achieve.
