2013 Best Dressed List


(page 3 of 12)

Marc Gardner

CEO, North American Bancard

Fashion style:

Custom-tailored suits for business on Wall Street and in capital markets; sporty casual for day to day and social affairs — for instance, a suede blazer, cashmere sweater, and jeans.

Favorite shops:

John Varvatos in SoHo

Favorite designers:

John Varvatos and Ermenegildo Zegna suits

Fashion debut:

“When I was a kid I worked in my grandfather’s clothing store called The Argyle Shop. Working in the stock room, unpacking the merchandise, watching the clientele — it didn’t take long for me to get into it.”

Fashion advice:

“Look in the Neiman’s and Saks catalogs and pull outfits from there. They spend tremendous amounts of money hiring the best stylists in the world to put those outfits together. If you duplicate them just as they are in the catalogs, technically, you’re dressed by a top fashion stylist.”
