The Office Andy Bernard

Andrew Baines Bernard is introduced as the “Regional Director in charge of sales” first at the Stamford branch, but later relocated when Stamford is shut-down and merged with Dunder Mifflin Scranton Branch.

He is assigned to sales for a period of time, but isn’t particularly successful. When Robert California is initially hired as branch manager, he somehow convinces Jo Bennett (Sabre CEO) to appoint himself to her own position and assigns Andy to the position of branch manager.

Andy is goofy and fun-loving most often, but he does have his own personal issues with anger management - which becomes very apparent when he becomes so frustrated by a prank Pam and Jim play on him, that he punches a hole in a wall of the office.​

Andy’s style is preppy in nature, consisting of many bold colored sweater vests, ties and khaki pants or dress slacks in general. His style could be described as flashy or even fancy at times.

Ahead you will find our guide to help you match the style and fashion of Andy Bernard.​

Andy's Coats and Jackets

Andy has been known to wear several different coats, jackets blazers, etc. throughout his many appearances on NBC’s The Office. Possibly the coat he is most recognized for is his beige jacket with a brown collar that he is noted to wear during his early days in Scranton.​

This beige jacket by Carhartt is visually very similar to the jacket worn by Andrew Bernard, but it’s worth mentioning it isn’t quite exact.​

​Here is a khaki colored blazer that is nearly identical to the jackets typically worn by Andy on The Office.

​A Vested Interest in Andy's Vests

Some of the flashiest articles of clothing Andy has been known to wear are his bright sweater vests. No Andy Bernard cosplay would be complete without one. He has been noted to wear them in various patterns and colors most notably: light blue, mustard yellow and brown argyle, just to name a few.

​Let’s have a look at some of the closest matches we were able to track down.

The Nard Dog's Shirts

Andy’s preppy dress shirts are so vibrant they’re nearly as loud as his acapella singing. He is known to model many different patterns, colors and styles that at times seem so bold that they’re nearly a mis-match.

​Some of the most recognizable shirts in Andy’s closet are: his vibrant red pull-over sweater, a barrage of checkered pattern shirts and even some multi-colored plaid dress shirts.

This red pull-over sweater is a perfect match to the sweater of Andrew Baines Bernard. It’s available for purchase on Amazon right now, here’s the link if you’re interested.​

The Legwear of Sir Andrew Bernard

Andrew Bernard has without a doubt the most noticeable and unique legwear of any character appearing on The Office. While he is often seen in pants and slacks not outside the norm such as his khaki or navy slacks, Andy will likely be remembered for his more unusual legwear choices, such as: his salmon or bright blue slacks.

These salmon colored pants are a bold choice for anyone, but Andy somehow manages to pull the look off with great aplomb.

These light blue colored slacks by Haggar are an excellent match to the brightly colored pants belonging to Andy.​

These men’s khaki slacks by Haggar are a very close match to the style of color of Andy’s most basic go-to legwear choice.

We get a glimpse of Andy’s most personal garments when he loses a bet and gets a tattoo of his co-workers choosing a “Nard Dog.” These striped boxers by Ralph Lauren are very similar to the ones worn by Andy Bernard while receiving his fresh ink.​

​The Kicks of a Cornell Alum

Much like the rest of his wardrobe, Andy’s shoes are no simple affair. Andy has been noted to wear several styles of loafers ranging in color from beige to black.

Arguably the most recognizable set of shoes owned by “The Nard Dog” are his brown leather textured, buckle loafers.

These brown dress shoes are a very near match to the loafers of Mr. Bernard, though it is worth noting that the texture of these particular shoes comes from the perforations and not particularly the design as Andy’s specific shoes appear to incorporate.

Andy's Flashy Neck Ties

Finally we have this blue and orange plaid pattern bow tie that is nearly identical to the style of bow ties worn by Andy on The Office.​
