Canal and Ludlow
I am so a shawl cardigan type of guy. Something about that type of collar that makes me feel so fall-like. I like his beige/cream color and its waffle knit.
Walker and West Broadway
This guy has sort of a Clark Kent/Superman thing going on with the square jaw, suit and eyeglasses. I think his tie does it for me, with one black diagonal stripe against the muted plaid and the grey/black contrast. Handsome tie for a handsome fellow.
Battery Park City
Even though thousands of people live there, I sometimes feel as though Battery Park City is more of a runner’s world rather than residential. A lot of the runners I observe on this path look straight out of those runner’s magazines, where everyone looks like the most perfect sprinting specimen. This guy is no exception.
9th Ave. and 22nd St.
The way he was wearing his hoodie seemed less functional and more about style. He could have very well been cold, but something tells me this was more about looking good, which he accomplished.
Lower East Side
Orchard and Delancey St.
Most typical henleys usually have three buttons, but the one this guy is wearing goes a bit deeper and is more revealing with five buttons. Another great alternative to “showing some skin”
6th Ave. and 8th St.
Many things going on here that I appreciate. First off, the belt buckle is a nice design. Secondly, those red sneakers that bring in a dash of color. Third and fourth it’s his eyeglasses and loose blazer with a different colored vest underneath both seemingly in the same fabric family of tweed, respectively. Lastly, the way his jacket collar is popped just ever so slightly with his bag slung around his shoulder carried with such nonchalance.
9th Ave. and 20th St.
What can I say? I’m a sucker for a Rolling Stones t-shirt. Love that band and their logo. Any guy who wears or owns one is okay in my book.
West Broadway and Prince St.
I’m surprised I don’t own a shirt and jacket hybrid. It’s the perfect combo and the fact that his is plaid, makes it even more appealing. Maybe I just haven’t encountered the right one. Clothes to me is like attraction – you’ll know it when you see it. You can’t always go looking for it.
5th Ave. and 24th St.
What I appreciated about this guy was that as he was passing by, I noticed his checkered blue and pink socks as his pant leg lifted up. But also, the print of his tie, his subtle pinstripes on the suit, the white pocket square, pink spread collar shirt and shiny leather loafers with tassles all added up to a myriad of details.
Lower East Side
Ever since Don Draper from the show Mad Men made everyone swoon with his tailored suits and thick, slick mane of hair, the side part has become a ubiquitous trend. But being this is New York, where trends have a short shelf life, this hairstyle has simmered down considerably. Yet once in a while, I spot it on a guy or two and no matter the trends, some guys were just made for this look.
350 West Broadway
SoHo can sometimes feel like a clever acronym for the word shopping as opposed to it intended meaning. But with heavy retail traffic, comes many opportunities to shoot stylish men making purchases. I like the variety of color he uses in his outfit – all different and complimentary.
This is the exact same stance and pose I strike whenever I lean up on wall with my shoulder. For me this guy is all about the subtle details – the buckle and looseness of his belt, the slick of his hair and preppy eyeglasses and of course that all too familiar wall lean.
1st Ave. and 1st St.
In the episode “The Maid” on the sitcom Seinfeld, the character Kramer finds himself in a “long distance” relationship with Jerry’s maid. He lives uptown on the UWS, she lives downtown and he finds himself lost and perplexed at the corner of 1st and 1st, that he refers to as the nexus of the universe, which is where I fittingly found this guy with his Uptown hat, at this very downtown location.
7th Avenue South
What’s even better than taking pictures of guys with a good sense of style is when their significant other is just as equally stylish. Two for the price of one. This couple was strolling in the West Village, both looking very put together. For him, it’s yet another example of how every guy should own a navy blue suit. It’s fool proof.
Christopher and Bedford St.
Just when you think you can put away the shorts and tees for fall, the weather hits a balmy 70+ degrees.
Upper West Side
In honor of Columbus Day, here’s a shot I took near the Columbus statue in Columbus Circle. The print on his polo shirt has a tropical vibe. Nice detail of his scrunched up pants to reveal his boots.
Everyone who’s visited club/lounge/bar Gold Bar has an opinion about the place; see Yelp reviews, but here, the nightlife venue plays background to the guy sitting in front of it. His arms full of tats were what won me over.
Corner Bistro is one of the best burger joints in the city. I found this guy waiting for a date at – where else – the corner. The second wait comes when you get inside and have to wait in line. His colored t-shirt made him stand out.
Lower East Side
It’s starting to finally feel like fall in New York with the weather turning crisp. Bring on the jackets and sweaters. These two guys are fall ready with their fitted jackets in leather and denim. I particularly love the wash and fade of the Levi’s denim jacket on the right.
This could have been another typical all black workout ensemble, but his straight brim camoflogue hat from the label Brixton, gives it some edge.
Broadway and 25th St.
Pausing on the street, waiting for the light to change. Red lights are the best for capturing guys with style. Another day, another t-shirt, and today’s color is green.
6th Ave. and Carmine St.
To add some variety to neck styles in your t- shirts, try a U neck. I like the semi slouchy fit of his with the sleeves slightly rolled. A very downtown look.
7th Ave. South and Barrow St.
A henley shirt is a great alternative to your everyday t-shirt. Henleys usually come in long sleeve form, so it’s nice to see a short sleeve version. I’m digging the way he matches his whites at the top and bottom and contrasts it with his dark jeans and backpack.
Taking the necessary safety precautions before making the jump.
A gold crucifix necklace is not your typical everyday fashion accessory. But then again, some things are beyond fashion
Prince and Sullivan St.
How can you not like a guy who sports an Angry Birds t-shirt? Two things that I noticed on him that I rarely see anymore – earrings (two small gold hoops no less) and long hair. Definitely a nice change of pace. His sleeve tattoo and the fact that he’s carrying a pizza are a nice touch. Bonus.
Prince and Greene St.
Full patterned and printed t-shirts are a great way to break up the monotony of solid colors, logos or t-shirts with singular pictures or designs. I never thought a floral t-shirt would be something I would be into, but after seeing this guy’s cool shirt, I may have to reconsider.
Hudson and Charles St.
Today’s weather turned fortuitously warm. So much so, that I spotted several outfits with shorts. What drew my eye to these pair were how wide and bell shaped they looked. Many guys have unsightly wide leg shorts, but it’s the short length here that gives it a less sloppy feel.
