2013 Best Dressed List


(page 6 of 12)

Sydney Ross

Co-owner of Great Lakes Wine and Spirits and co-founder of The Garden Party Foundation with his wife, Elizabeth

Fashion style:

Effortless. Beautiful sports coats over well-tailored trousers and open-collared shirts. “I love colorful socks,” he adds, “if I’m wearing socks at all.” Sometimes in summer, he switches up with great linen shirts and pants, but always sticking to a color palette of mostly blue, black, and gray.

Favorite shops:

L’uomo Vogue and Saks Fifth Avenue

Favorite designers:

Ermenegildo Zegna suits and Ferragamo shoes

Fashion debut:

“I’ve been dressing myself since I was 7 years old. Both my parents were always very well dressed. But at this stage, things are quite different for me. Eight years ago, at 6’4”, I weighed 272 pounds. Now I weigh 210. That made a big difference in what I wear and how it looks.”

Fashion advice:

“Dress in clothes that you feel comfortable wearing, and that are properly suited for the occasion.”
