I first met Tommy Dewey on television.
Well, he was on television, I was watching as he played one of Mindy Kaling’s suitors on the first season of The Mindy Project.
An unhealthy level of investment was sunk into their relationship – she was a gossip-mag loving doctor, he was a Red Bull-chugging sports agent…they were perfect together! – and when the show wrote him off with a hastily-conceived drug problem and rash of infidelity, I expressed my dismay online. From there we followed one another on Twitter, and a friendship was born. (See a pattern here?)
In real life, this LA-based triple threat (he also writes and produces) is almost never caught in a suit like the deal-making agent he played on TMP. You’ll see he keeps it casual most of the week, but never compromises on style or class. This west coaster can teach us all a thing or two about comfort, confidence, and keeping it cool.
“I wouldn’t dare call L.A. cold, but when it gets a little chillier, I’ll wear something like this. Pitch meetings today, followed by an event tonight.
I’m having folks over for a writing session today, but don’t want to look like a total slob if I have to duck out on a lunch meeting. Confession: I wear this shirt too often.
An all-purpose get-up for a varied day. You can catch me in stuff like this pretty often. Today, I’ll be writing in the morning, heading to an audition in the afternoon, and then out to meet friends in the evening. Sharp-looking (I hope) but comfortable.
As dressy as I’ll get outside of a wedding or a premiere. Headed to a few meetings and then an event.
MEXICO!! A casual outfit that, in my opinion, works from the tarmac to the beach.”
When’s the last time you wore a suit?
