David Letterman's Wardrobe -
On the late night show LATE NIGHT
WITH DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW/NBC/1982-93, host David Letterman wore
sneakers and blazers onto the program each night. His shoe size is
approximately 10 and 1/2. A pair of his sneakers were once sold at
a celebrity auction for $500.
When his program moved to CBS in the
fall season of 1993, David Letterman's casual attire of sports
jacket and sneakers were dropped and replaced with a more
conservative look of custom double breasted suits and polished
Over the years, Dave occasionally wore suits of a
silly kind. They included attire made of:
Alka-Seltzer (dropped him in a water tank to fizz away),
Magnets (Dave was very attractive, if you what what I mean)
Marshmallows (they tried to light the marshmallows with propane
torches but failed-the audience ate the marshmallows);
(eaten by members of the audience after Dave was dunked in
Rice Krispies (poured milk on Dave to hear snap, crackle & pop
Sponge (they weighed Dave, dunked him in water, then weighed him
again, but it was off the scale).
Suet (Dave went into a cage of birds as they attacked his suit),
and a suit made of Velcro (Dave jumped onto a wall covered with
the matching Velcro grabbers and stuck to it).
