Doctor Garmentz (@doctorgarmentz) is one-of-a-kind, and his wardrobe is no different. The creative director behind fashion label Organic Garmentz and native New Yorker has over 120k followers on TikTok, where he shares fashion tips and New York City shopping, food, and nightlife recommendations. In this episode of Coveted Closet, the Doctor is in! Doctor Garmentz gives us a tour of his eclectic closet filled with unique vintage finds.
“She’s really big into fashion,” says Doctor Garmentz of his mother. “She was the first person that I’d really seen with a lot of different designer bags, different things like that. So I think just subconsciously I kind of picked up on that.”
Doctor Garmentz begins the closet tour with a recap of the outfit he’s wearing, which includes a Y/Project double collar shirt, a Comme des Garçons skirt over a pair of Organic Garmentz pants, and a pair of SWEAR Exterminator sneakers. “It’s not really Doctor Garmentz unless I have the sunglasses,” says the fashion creative as he adds his signature accessory.
Next, he shows off a vintage Versace cardigan from his dad and a showstopping House of Errors all-seeing eye leather jacket. Moving onto the shoe collection, Doctor Garmentz showcases a pair of Toga Virilis studded slip-ons and a pair of Prada sneakers he’d wanted since he was a kid.
When asked about his favorite outfit, Doctor Garmentz changes into a pair of jeans he custom-tailored himself and a green Maison Margiela sweater, which he accessorizes with a Vivienne Westwood watch and a pair of Dior sunglasses.
1. Fashion is emotion
“I’m just showing my emotions, like how I feel in that moment, through my clothes,” explains Doctor Garmentz.
2. Focus on proportion
“It makes you look more put together,” says the fashion director. “So if you’re not really getting the right proportion, you could have all of the right pieces, but it doesn’t look right because visually, it’s off.”
3. Everyone needs a tailor
“It’s extremely important that the clothes that you get fit you properly,” notes Doctor Garmentz. “I’m so tall, it’s harder for me to find pants that fit me exactly how I want [them] to fit me. So I would probably get some pants that are a little bit bigger, and [they] may not fit my waist but [they] can fit my length. And then take in the waist, or I can make it a little bit looser, or I can make it a little bit tighter.”
4. Invest in lifelong pieces
The key to a lifelong piece is ensuring you will wear it a lot. Doctor Garmentz suggests you “get pieces that can go with a lot of different things that you have in your closet” so that you’ll wear them more often.
5. Don’t be afraid to experiment
The more you experiment with your clothes, the more you’ll learn about what types of clothes you like and what kinds of pieces look good on you. “Show yourself within the pieces that you wear,” says Doctor Garmentz. “That’s how people are seeing you, like, they’re getting a vibe off your fit.”
