Steal His Look: Schmidt from “New Girl”
New Girl‘s Schmidt – played to preppy perfection by Max Greenfield – is known for being the funny guy, the neurotic guy, the bordering-on-OCD-about-spiders guy, but he’s also the best-dressed guy on the Fox sitcom.
His style is preppy; consider him the loft roommate most likely to have that J.Crew gingham shirt in his closet (in fact, he might be wearing it below). His slight douchebaggery – he keeps a binder full of pictures of himself modeling his own suits – doesn’t take away from a closet that’s just waiting to be copied.
Schmidt’s Type-A personality has affected his style in more ways than one. He has the most conservative job in the loft, working in the gloriously vague field of “marketing” and is obsessed with personal hygiene. We usually see him in well tailored suits or casual, impeccably put-together separates.
What we like:
- Schmidt knows what looks good and he never sacrifices his style despite any occasion
- Whether he’s in jeans and a cardigan or an expensive suit, he keeps in classy, simple, and stylish
- It’s his attention to fit and detail (did his tailor really get those sleeve lengths wrong?) that really caught our eye. Whether he’s on or off duty, he’s always perfectly put together
- He’s not afraid of mixing colors into his wardrobe. This man has not met a brightly checked shirt he didn’t like, and that’s a good thing.
