Here Is Why Steve Harvey Always Wear Suits
The ever-funny Steve Harvey is a man known for his great humor, classic mustache, and impeccable attire. It's no secret that he is a fan of a well-tailored suit... Have you ever wondered why he sticks to this outfit no matter the occasion? Well, we have those details and more! Stay tuned.
He Got It From His Mama...
Steve Harvey‘s online show “Rolling with Steve Harvey” brought fans back to those days when he was still busy with standup comedy. He always brought confusion to the rest of his on-stage friends like the Kings of Comedy star D.L. Hughley. Why? Well, he dressed very formally for a comedian.
The host went on to share that it was his mother's parenting that encouraged him to dress well. She also taught him that he would find a wife because a good lady is impressed with a man who can dress well... Harvey carried this belief with him and even made his friends, Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer and Bernie Mac wear suits!
Sharing His Love For Suits
Harvey told his audience the following story about this suit loving tendency of his:
“The first year we did Kings of Comedy, they didn’t wear suits, I’m the only one who wore suits. D.L. used to say, ‘Man, why you wear a suit all the time?’ I don’t know no other way to be, dog. People paying all this money to see us might as well give ’em something to look at.
"Hell, we ain’t cute. The Kings of Comedy wasn’t no pretty group. We was funny as hell, but we was not an attractive bunch. You just have to know that. If you ain’t cute, you ain’t cute. You just gotta come to that [expletive]”
Mister Harvey And His Friends
The funnyman has a way with words and manages to say offensive things in a way that doesn't make anyone feel bad. For example, he stated that he enjoys having ugly friends because they don't mind scuffling with him. This light-hearted joke is just one of the ways this suit loving man operates.
The Big Change In Steve's Outfits Came After His 50th Birthday
During his days on the road with the Kings of Comedy group, Harvey became known for his bright and bold suits. He moved away from these types of suits when he turned fifty. In 2016 the beloved Steve Harvey told ABC’s “The View” show the following:
“At 50, I said I’m going to lose a little weight. I’m going to shave my hair, which I was tired of cutting. And then my suits went through a miraculous change.”
His Wife Plays A Big Role In His Dress Code
Harvey went on to tell the hosts of “The View” it was actually his wife, Marjorie that brought on his new wave of improving fashion. He explained that she comically said she was “tired of being married to a pimp.” He also noted her refreshing words:
"Your life is going to change drastically. God is going to take you somewhere. You got to look like you’re prepared to go where he’s taking you."
"The Steve Style"
We all now know that Steve Harvey loves suits, but do you know which suits? Well, if we look closely we'll see that there certainly is a trend when it comes to what he likes and doesn't like. We have gathered all the information we could find about the features of his gallant garments.
Whether it was on his show or on Family Feud, the man wants to be comfortable in his clothing. The pants are never tight and he always opts for a wider drape down the leg. This lets him move around with freedom and his suit pants also have a nice pleat to round them off, classic Steve Style.
He Mixes Italian Features With American Design
Next comes a more distinct style aspect of his look, the formal jacket. His three-piece suits actually feature fabric and styles form two very different parts of the world. He mixes the best of the American cut while the shoulder work is more of an Italian nature and style.
You can see the very subtle padding on the top of the shoulders which is not common of the American suit tailoring. While he likes this, his suit sides need to be comfy so he prefers a more American style suit that actually features some special and extra material for comfort.
For Steve, Quality And Comfort Are Key
One thing is for sure, Mr. Harvey does not like tight-fitting suits and truly values the quality of what he wears. One can always see that his outfits are impeccably made while still valuing comfort. He also likes the added details of slanted pockets with a peaked unique lapel.

"Marjorie Harvey’s Closet” allows me to combine these two interests and involve my lovely followers in the process."
How Marjorie Helped Steve With His Style
There are always benefits when it comes to having such a stylish wife and Steve knows all about it. She spoke about the process of helping her husband with Ebony magazine. She said:
"Steve has always been an extremely good looking man with his own sense of style. But, in my opinion, he just needed to bring in his suits a little bit, tone down the colors and take off those big hats so the rest of world could see just how fine he is!(laughs) Even when he shaved his head, to me he looked 10 years younger. So I said, “Baby, you don’t need all of that. Sometimes less is more.”
