Casual Friday

Casual Friday

NoMad
26th and Broadway

This would be my version of the Casual Friday concept – no jacket, no tie, but still looking decent and presentable and loosening up the look with rolled up sleeves and the collar open and spread. Relaxed but still professional and never sloppy.

High Above The Knee

High Above The Knee

Upper East Side
Central Park

Here’s a fellow who is not afraid to show off a little leg. White shorts in particular are a good way to draw attention to your legs, but he ups the ante by picking a pair that is fitted and close to his thighs and the length falls a good distance away from his knee caps.  If you’ve got ’em, flaunt ’em.

Nice Lips

Nice Lips

SoHo
Prince and Wooster St.

I’m referring to his t-shirt, but you can be drawn to his mouth if you choose so. I prefer graphic tees with pictures rather than words, phrases or witty musings. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes.

New England Beach Vibe

New England Beach Vibe

Greenwich Village
NYU/West 4th St.

Here is a guy that reminds me of a Kennedy brother where he looks like he should be out in Newport R.I., sailing on the Atlantic and looking as preppy as can be.

Accessory Man

Accessory Man

Meatpacking District
9th Ave and 14th St.

One accessory that I think guys should own more of is bracelets. I say, keep your outfit simple but get playful with wrist wear. Here’s one guy who isn’t afraid to pile on the bracelets. Wrist wear is a great way to add a touch of personality and a hint of color. Like pocket squares and ties; they’re small items but they make a world of difference.

Briefcase

Briefcase

Upper East Side
Madison Ave. and East 65th St.

I don’t own, nor have ever owned a briefcase in my life, but if I ever purchased one, something tells me it would look like the one this gentleman is carrying. The color is bold yet tasteful, the leather looks rich, soft and sumptuous, the design is elegant and classic and it looks bloody expensive which any great briefcase should look like.

Mix & Match

Mix & Match

Greenwich Village
6th Ave. and Downing St.

What I found interesting with this outfit was that his top half of plaid shirt and hat looked casual, while his bottom half of work out shorts and sneakers looked athletic. Two for the price of one.  A combination I would never have thought of, but he pulls it off.  Great to see inventive merging.

Bag Man

Bag Man

Upper East Side
5th Ave. and 84th St.

I wasn’t able to decipher if the bag he was carrying belonged to him or if he was holding it for his girlfriend (not pictured). Some accessories are designed to be considered unisex. I wonder if this bag qualifies. I’ve also been noticing subtle tattoos on guys, which he’s inked with on his inner forearm.

Going Places

Going Places

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 15th St.

Some guys carry themselves with such authority and look like they mean business. I noticed how sharp this guy looked and how just the simple act of getting into a cab, for him, was done like he was the “man” and that he was of importance and had somewhere important to be.

Red Shorts

Red Shorts

Chelsea
9th Ave. and 22nd St.

Work out or athletic clothes aren’t particularly the most stylish clothes as they feel more functional, but this guy manages to make his look like a respectable outfit.

Chinatown Cruise

Chinatown Cruise

Chinatown
Bayard and Mott St.

Some guys can make browsing and shopping on a lazy Sunday afternoon look good. I usually don’t shoot during the weekends, but I happened to have my camera on me as I perused Chinatown and stumbled upon this guy strolling the packed and dense streets and captured the one instance where there wasn’t a mob of people.

L.A. In NYC

L.A. in NYC

TriBeCa
West Broadway and Warren St.

This guy has  an urbanite L.A. look.  Along with his L.A. Dodgers cap, he’s got the look and feel of  the Southern Cali vibe.  I love how his daughter is wearing his hoodie because she’s cold and how oversize it looks on her.  His shirt is actually from a New York based company, Saturdays Surf that makes cool beach/surf inspired clothes but for an urban setting as well. Their store on Crosby Street is one of my favorite places to shop and they have that amazing back garden where you can sit and drink a beverage from their little coffee shop at the front.

White Tank

White Tank

Flatiron District
5th Ave. and 23rd St.

The street island of tables and chairs directly in front of the Flatiron building is great for people watching. I could sit there all day and snap pics, but for variety sake, I like to mix things up. I found this guy soaking up the sun on one of the first hot days in the city with his exposed arms via his tank top. Look closely and you can see a bit of his tattoo on his shoulder.

Red Man

Red Man

Midtown
5th Ave. and 44th St.

Many studies have shown that men who wear the color red are considered more attractive and sexually desirable to women because it makes them appear more powerful, it lends the appeal of higher status and signifies rank and even that they are more likely to make more money.  Regardless of whether this guy knows that, he definitely makes the case for red.

Black & Blue

Black & Blue

SoHo
Prince and Lafayette St.

This is a unique take on the denim jacket.  I really like the placement of the pockets and the color combo of black and blue.

Laughing Man

Laughing Man

Upper West Side
Columbus and  West 72nd St.

I came across this guy joking around with his buddy (not pictured). He looks very fit, athletic and sporty. It’s nice to be able to capture some levity on a New Yorker once in a while.

Mr. Clean

Mr. Clean

Upper West Side
Broadway and West 67th St.

Clean cut, preppy with the suave hair and square jaw to match.

Only In New York

Only In New York

TriBeCa
Church and Murray St.

Hailing a cab while holding a bright object of art, carrying a Louis Vuitton duffel bag, wearing camoflogue shorts, athletic wear and a baseball cap. Seemingly random, but he makes the mish mash work.

Crowd Spotted

Crowd Spotted

Upper East Side
Metropolitan Museum of Art

Certain areas of New York are prime for crowds and people watching. The steps of The Met definitely qualify.  I was sitting on the steps for a good while before anything caught my eye. I guess because hordes of tourists aren’t particularly the most stylish, so it’s great to capture the few who are and who stand out amidst the crowd.  I spotted this guy with his cool oval shaped shades, double breast pocket button down and backwards cap and simple wrist wear of bracelets.  He looks very cosmopolitan and would look good in any major city.

Perfectly Pale

Perfectly Pale

NoMad
Broadway and 28th St.

This guy’s outfit is great with its pale shades and is kept in balance with his dark hair and dark Converse Chuck Taylors. I also noticed his small, delicate tattoo on his hand.

Orange T

Orange T

Upper East Side
5th Ave. and East 81st St.

The simplicity of a solid colored t-shirt is a good way to stay classic. This guys fills his shirt out pretty well.

Tank Season

Flatiron
5th Ave. and 22nd St.

Now that the temperatures are spiking in the city, I’m confident that I’ll be taking a lot of pictures with guys in tank tops. But not all tanks are good tanks and some guys can pull them off better than others. Here is one such case of a good tank. Simple, classic, not too showy.
