Bachelors come and go, but one constant remains: the show’s unflappable host Chris Harrison and his reliably dapper wardrobe.¬†And since we’re always excited to see what he’ll wear next on the show, it didn’t surprise us to learn that people constantly ask him where he gets his outfits.

What did surprise us? The fact that Harrison is launching his own clothing line — a fact he shared with us exclusively when he visited the PEOPLE offices last week.

“I think there’s a huge market there for guys like me, who aren’t going to be wearing the ridiculous Ed Hardy stuff — we’re too old for that garbage — but at the same time, we don’t want to look like a slouch,” he says. “I like dressing up, but at the same time, I want to go pick up my kids from school and not look like a goofball.”

He plans to channel that passion for stylish, relatable clothing into the Chris Harrison Collection by Da Vinci, a partnership with his designer pal Christopher Wicks, whom Harrison calls “a genius.”

It’s a logical next step for the man who calls himself “a clothes hound — as much as you can be for a straight guy.” Harrison says he takes a lot of pride in the Bachelor wardrobe he puts together with the show’s stylist Cary Fetman, particularly noting his affinity for ties, vests and watches. “People come up to me saying, ‘Dude, I like what you wear, I like what you’re doing,'” he says of his style, “so I’m like, ‘Hey, let’s do our own [line].'”

Excited to add a little Bachelor magic into your guy’s wardrobe? Harrison says that he’ll be wearing his own designs in the next season of The Bachelorette (no premiere date yet, but likely later this year), so tune in and keep your eyes out for the first glimpse at The Harrison Collection. Tell us: Are you looking forward to Harrison’s new clothing line?

Great idea! Chris looks very “dapper” on the show. I like to see men dressed in nice clothing. Shows that they care about the people around them (and also their selves).


Actually, I meant “themselves” . . . . Correcting myself!

I dont’ care what anyone says, I like Chris, he’s classy and seems like a nice guy..and don’t bash him because his marriage didn’t work…Very sad as it is, every other marriage seems to break down, he’s no different…

WTF with the sensasionalism PEOPLE. When I saw the heading I thought they were announcing Chris will be the next bachelor, *shrugs*

When I saw the headline of the article, I thought the style ‘news’ was that the bachleor was gonna start wearing a shirt…
