Nick Daryanani loves wearing jackets. “A good leather jacket is my go to,” he adds. You would imagine that wearing a full suit in 35 degrees Celsius would put anyone off, but the Hong Kong-based host of the TV show Off The Cuff does it without breaking a sweat. Literally and figuratively. Then again, it’s a small price to pay if your job is as cool as hosting a talk show with some of the biggest celebrities in Asia, on a tram swooshing around the city of Hong Kong. But being suave doesn’t just stop on screen for Nick.
“I like wearing polos. They’re the perfect level between a shirt and a t-shirt. A dark polo and beige chinos would be my go to on any given day.” he says. By his own admission, he has always had great style. Maybe it’s a result of his upbringing in the fashion capital of Hong Kong or the frequent trips he takes to the ever-so-stylish city of London. “That, yes and also my girlfriend has a hand in it” he adds with a sheepish smile.
A piece of advice from him: “Always match your shoes and belts. It’s sad how men often ignore this small detail which can make a big difference in the way your entire outfit looks. Also, forget what the trend or the magazines tell you. A leather briefcase will always trump a backpack to complete a formal look.”
