    For this casual look, which he refers to as "the Everyday," dePoo layers a Ralph Lauren olive windbreaker over a Diesel ribbed grey tee. "[The jacket] is practical, lightweight and adds my favorite color to my heavily black and gray wardrobe. [The tee] is the most comfortable thing I own. It has managed to collect tiny drops of paint from every production I have ever worked on." He completes the outfit with Naked and Famous black skinny jeans purchased at Barneys Co-op in Chelsea (236 W 18th St between Seventh and Eighth Aves; 212-593-7800, barneys.com).

    DePoo mixes sleek gold and silver Bonnie bracelets purchased at Odin's Soho location (199 Lafayette St between Broome and Kenmare Sts; 212-966-0026, odinnewyork.com) with a rugged Hooked bracelet by Miansai by Michael Saiger (miansai.com). The latter features a hand-cast silver fishing hook and yellow cord. "It reminds me of Key West, even when I am trekking through a blizzard," he muses.

    Though dePoo typically favors smaller independent boutiques, he also frequents larger stores, including Barneys New York (660 Madison Ave at E 61st St; 212-826-8900, barneys.com), where he found this limited-edition Nixon watch.

    This look is dePoo's "Design Presentation" ensemble: "It's simple, structured and, ideally, doesn't take anything away from the [concept] I may be presenting."

    DePoo's "Opening Night" garb consists of an expertly tailored dress shirt, a snazzy bow tie, a chocolate-brown dinner jacket, fitted blue pants and a pair of streamlined dress shoes. "Opening nights have a sense of extravagance and heightened energy," he shares. "It's the perfect opportunity to have fun."

    "Sometimes they have the most spectacular items with the slickest fits," says dePoo of his metallic brown jacket from Zara (zara.com). The underlying dress shirt is an item that piqued his interest at Ted Baker (locations throughout the city; visit tedbaker-london.com). "Their fits are perfect, and their fabric choices are insane," he enthuses. "It's like they take Grandma's wallpaper and craft it into a shirt---yet only in a really fantastic way."

    Channeling a bit of old-school Kennedy flair, dePoo dons a classic bow tie he picked up in New England: "When I lived in Boston, I was told about this amazing men's vintage store called Bobby from Boston that literally had bow ties by the five-gallon bucket. This one is my favorite because of its vibrantly stained fabric and sharp silhouette."

    The set designer completes his polished look by sporting Harris brown dress shoes sans socks. "I love forgetting socks when wearing sharp shoes with dress pants [that are] cut just above the ankle. It doesn't work if the pants are any longer. Go short or go home."
