Nothing But The Clothes On His Back

Nothing But The Clothes On His Back

Varick and Beach St.

No iPhone, no smartphone, no cell phone, no earphones, no headphones, no jewelry, no watch, no sunglasses, no eyeglasses, no accessories, no hat, no bag, no backpack, no gym bag, no shopping bag, no water bottle, no coffee cup, no book, no iPad, no dog, no excess. This guy literally has nothing but the clothes on his back and it looks amazing. Travel light, travel far I say.

In New York, we tend to carry around so much stuff on our daily travels, so how refreshing to see someone so unencumbered with nothing but his confidence and swagger. I always feel my best walking around the city with no accoutrements to weigh me down because people should notice me, not things that distract them from me. I see a lot of people throwing on all kinds of things to get noticed and to be looked at, but if you have confidence, you don’t need anything but that to grab people’s attention. That is the ultimate attention grabber. Less really is more.
