When working in the entertainment industry, Andrew Weitz became known as the best-dressed agent in town. After helping countless clients and colleagues with style advice, he decided to parlay his skills into The Weitz Effect, his business that guides clients toward finding their own optimal style.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN STYLE? When my mom would overdress me for school. When I look back at photos of my childhood, I was always dressed well, except for the ’90s. However, I really started focusing on and learning about style and fashion in the early 2000s while working in the entertainment industry.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? My style has evolved over time. In just the last 10 years, I went from conservative, classic and dandy to today, which is elevated, timeless and chic casual. I do like to have a bit of fun with what I wear, especially with colors and patterns.
WHAT ARE SOME TYPICAL LOOKS FOR YOU? For a more casual look I’ll wear elevated jogger trousers, a knit polo, designer sneakers and maybe a blouson or bomber jacket. A formal look could be a couture suit paired with a crew neck knit or button-up shirt paired with beautiful shoes or elevated sneakers.
WHAT DESIGNERS DO YOU GRAVITATE TOWARD? Italian, British and French designers. The quality, fit and creativity in general; you just cannot beat European style.
WHAT CAN READERS EXPECT FROM YOU NEXT? Our business is expanding. The Weitz Effect now offers an exclusive virtual membership called The Club. It is great for those who don’t live in L.A. or who want access to our service virtually and want to learn about current fashion trends, as well as receive help in defining their own personal style. We are also now working with female clients the same way we work with men, and there are many collaborations in the works including a stylish capsule collection from The Weitz Effect.
