Ask Mr Andrew Weitz to describe his style in three words, and you could be forgiven for thinking that you'd misheard him. But when the talent agent - who works with numerous high-profile actors - says corporate, he means it. "I'm known in the entertainment community for being an impeccable dresser," he says, and with no misplaced pride; a feature in a recent edition of The Hollywood Reporter, entitled "Secrets of Hollywood's Best-Dressed Male Agents", which opened with an anecdote of Mr Weitz dining at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills, described him as looking "less like a talent agent and more like a GQ editor fresh off the front row at Paris Men's Fashion Week".
It's a look that he describes as "conservative with an edge" - and while it ticks the corporate box, paying duty to the old-school, suited-and-booted image of a Hollywood agent, it's certainly not everyone's idea of conservative. Not that that concerns Mr Weitz. "When someone makes fun of what I'm wearing, I feed off of it," he laughs. "Everyone's so scared. Don't be scared!"
