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 men‘s catwalk in Italy.”
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 Axe has worn Adidas, it seems he 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 3, Episode 7 we saw Axe sporting a pair of New Balance Numeric AM210, black.
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.

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.”

‘Billions’ Makes the Best TV Box Set List for Christmas
by James Jackson – The Times – December 8, 2017
Billions gets four out of five stars and is hand picked for one of the best television box sets of the year on the “Gift Guide: The Best TV Box Sets for Christmas.” Only five made the list. Billions joins the likes of Blue Planet II, Dissent & Disruption: The Complete Alan Clarke at the BBC, The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, and Victoria Series 1 and 2.
The Times writes, “For the alpha male in your life, this US drama (shown in Britain on Sky Atlantic) is a high-wire gift: it’s a high-finance romp that he will find wildly addictive; just hope that it doesn’t encourage his worse instincts. Depicting the strategic, but hate-fueled game of chess between a crooked billionaire hedge-fund boss played by Damian Lewis and the District Attorney on his case played by Paul Giamatti, it looks sleekly wonderful, leads you in unexpected directions and has much pumped-up macho dialogue. It’s great, power-mad fun.”
£8.99 season one and £19.99 season two
