The Fashion and Style of Bobby Axelrod – May 4, 2018

Bobby Axelrod: The CASHmere King

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 4, 2018

You would think Damian Lewis and Bobby Axelrod couldn’t dress more differently but diving a little deeper, I found some commonalities. However, if we were to simplify, Damian typically dresses up with spurts of leisure whereas Axe dresses down with spurts of formality. Svelte Damian can wear a suit like a coat hanger and Axe can wear a hoodie like a dope Bankster. As Billions costume designer Eric Daman has said, “Damian looks like he just walked off a mens catwalk in Italy” so when “Axe does wear a suit, it’s like a punch to the face.”

During his interview with Mr. Porter, Damian explained Bobby’s fashion choices:

“The clothes that Bobby wears are something of a uniform, but they are prowling and athletic – easy to move fast in. And that feels right. Him not wearing a suit and tie shows great confidence. Shows that he isn’t established. That he’s very much outside the New York class system and its aristocracy of old European industrialist families. With Bobby, money is king.”

He goes on to state,

“We talked a lot about the way Bobby should look. That culture of hoodies and sneakers has existed in the dot.com world for a while now, but you get it in the hedge fund world, also.”

In this April, 2018 How To Dress Like a Billionaire article, the Wall Street Journal mentions the infamous Axe hoodie. Just “type Bobby Axelrod into Google and the first recommendation that pops up is Bobby Axelrod hoodie.”  As mentioned earlier, Eric Daman revealed Axe wears cashmere Loro Piana zip-ups. The Bomber Hood Leasure is made of knitted cashmere and cotton, designed for leisure time and relaxation with a fitted cut and sweatshirt-inspired styling. Each one costs a mere $2,295!

And you can’t just throw these puppies into your washing machine! It’s either professional dry cleaning or hand wash with neutral detergent, preferrably the Loro Piana Cashmere Soap, a special detergent created by Loro Piana for garments in cashmere and baby cashmere. It’s a natural product that refreshes fibers while keeping their softness using a gentle formula with a natural base derived from olive oil and sugar. The perfect accompaniment when gifting a cashmere garment.

Both Damian and Axe like their jeans, trainers, and the occasional suit from time to time. In this article Damian mentions the Adidas Samba with three simple stripes, Rag and Bone jeans, and a tailor-made Huntsman or Burberry.  And while Damian has worn Adidas, Axe prefers Puma Suede kicks. As for a suit, Axe spares no cost and goes for the tailor-made Cifonelli pinstripe. Both enjoy a good watch, Axe preferring the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Blue Dial and in this article Damian’s choice is a Rolex Air-King.

In Billions Season 1, we saw Axe sporting some Puma Suede kicks in both tan and black, the Nike Internationalist Premium Bleu, as well as the Nike FS Lite Run 2 Running Shoe.

In Billions Season 3, Episode 5 and 7 we saw Axe wearing a pair of New Balance Numeric AM210, black.

In Billions Season 3, Episode 8 Axe was sporting a pair of Nike Killshot 2.

Since the premiere of Billions in 2016 there have been numerous articles about the fashion and style of the onscreen characters, namely Axe, Chuck and Wendy. In 2017 Showtime revealed a marketing campaign featuring the Billions fashion of Axe and Chuck and now in 2018, Showtime continues with a fashion and style marketing campaign, developing their own trend! Let’s take a look at those campaigns and the fashion of Bobby Axelrod from 2016-present.

The Red Revolution: What it Really Means to Have Crimson Locks – Feb 12, 2018

New Book Celebrates All Things Ginger

Despite just 2% of the world’s population having crimson locks, they are over-represented in high-profile public roles.

But it might be too soon for them to have the last laugh, as it’s feared the redhead gene could die out by 2060.

A new book, Ginger Pride – A Red-Headed History Of The World, examines what makes red hair so special – and confirms they really are a unique breed.

“It started off as a look at historical figures with red hair, as I noticed there was a bit of a trend,” explained author and “proud ginger” Tobias Anthony.

“But I decided to widen it to look at other topics.

“One aspect I was really intrigued by was the myth-making, like accusations of being vampires and witches centuries ago.

“Redheads play a hand in almost every aspect of the world as we know it, from Vikings to royalty (by the time Queen Elizabeth I passed, Britain had seen 138 consecutive years of redheads on the throne) to medicine.

Damian Lewis said, “The redhead stock is very high at the moment. This might be a unique moment in recent history, redheads everywhere are doing well – Prince Harry, Ed Sheeran, Julianne Moore, me, Lily Cole.”

“I think once you have this type of myth and aura connected to ginger hair, there’s some attraction to it. There is something that makes you stand out and seems to captivate people in a certain way and it makes sense to want to ride on the coat-tails of that.”
