Band Collar Shirt

Tab Collar Shirt

Greenwich Village
6th Avenue and Downing St.

A couple of years ago I purchased a vertical and horizontal striped/contrast band collar shirt from a thrift store and had it taken to my tailor. It’s one of my favorite shirts and it seems to garner a lot of compliments and intrigue of where I purchased it. I like that type of collar because it has an informal formality to it. I liken it to what a v-neck is to a t-shirt, a band collar button down shirt is to a regular collared button down shirt. It’s slight twist, that makes a world of difference.

Nolita
Prince and Mulberry St.

These two lounging on a bench with beverages from La Colombe Coffee, both on their phones looking so very downtown is the epitome of what you’ll see in Nolita.

Gearing Up

Gearing Up

SoHo
6th Avenue and Spring St.

There’s always this specific time of year when spring is officially here, but the temperature only slightly upticks. For some people after a brutal winter, that small increase in warmth is a enough to throw on shorts, despite the lingering chill in the air. Such was the case this past weekend where I saw an onslaught of shorts on guys who were definitely pre-spring attired.

Well Suited

Well Suited

Acustom Apparel/SoHo
West Broadway and Grand St.

I was waiting for a friend outside of the SoHo Grand Hotel when I noticed these two gents on a smoke break looking very dapper in their respective suit and blazer. They both work at the suit store Acustom Apparel and it got me thinking of wanting to work at a suit store as well to give me a reason to dress like that on a regular basis.:)

This couple had some nice tied scarf action both happening around their necks.I can never make my scarves look this good. They should give lessons.

Lunch Hour

MMLunch Hour
Midtown East
Park Avenue and 55th St.

You want suit action in New York? Stand on Park Avenue in the 50′s any weekday during lunch hour to get an embarrassment of riches. I wasn’t even looking to take pictures while I was on my way to an appointment in the area, but the suits were coming at me from all sides

Cigars at The Mercer

Cigars at The Mercer

SoHo
The Mercer Hotel

If you’re going to have a cigar outside, I can’t think of a better place to stand outside of and have one. Check out that ski sweater

The Trinity

The Trinity

Greenwich Village
6th Ave. and Bleecker St.

This was a bit of a miracle shot to get all three of these very stylish guys aligned and unobstructed as they were crossing the street. All three of them are nailing their own individual look with such nonchalance. They’re all very inspiring.

Black Jackets

Black Jackets

Midtown West
Columbus Circle

Yesterday’s post Texture was a great all black ensemble. Today’s post shows how to punch up a black base coat of black with some color and some contrast. The all black look can be sharp, sleek and even tough, but pairing black with different hues makes it more relaxed.

Two Of A Kind

Two Of A Kind

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 23rd St.

With these fellas, they are both giving us the slim fit, straight leg jean look in a dark shade. On bachelor number one, the shade is navy and he pairs it with a graphic tee, gold watch and sneakers, while on bachelor number two, the shade is a black/blue and he sports it with sunglasses, a short sleeved plaid button down shirt and boots. Two dudes, similar denim, their own unique twist.

Men in Black

Men in Black

Nolita
Prince and Mulberry St.

I couldn’t resist the play on words as it seemed to be very apropos. I found these two to be quite identical yet very individual at the same time. Just goes to show that no matter how uniform a look, each guy can make it his own.

One on One

Lower East Side
Chrystie and Houston St.

The competition was pretty fierce among these two. It was fun watching them try and kick each other’s asses. The trash talking was hilarious as well. For the sake of diplomacy, I won’t reveal who was the better player or who scored more points. I’ll leave that between the three of us.

Cardigan & Vest

Cardigan & Vest

SoHo
Spring and Wooster

These two gents are all about their top layer – specifically ones with a v formation and a row of buttons. The cardigan is a perfect layering piece if it’s too warm for a jacket but just chilly enough for a second skin of clothing. The vest is more decorative, but gives an outfit just a hint of formality.

Leather & Denim

Leather & Denim

Lower East Side
Hester Street

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.

Bros

Bros

West Village
Bedford and Downing

The close cropped hair, the clean cut looks,the casual t-shirts, the khaki shorts and sandals and boat shoes – these guys have preppy “bros” written all over them.

Members Only

Members Only

SoHo
Wooster St.

This gang of European tourists are all pretty like minded in their shoe game. Decidedly, the consensus seems to be white sneakers. I like how the two guys in the forefront of the picture are wearing the same pair and then how the two guys in the background also have the same pair on. I personally, like the non-Nike shoes.

Two Guys, Two Tanks

Two Guys, Two Tanks

West Village
7th Ave. and Greenwich Ave.

I stumbled upon this couple leaving Roasting Plant Coffee in the West Village as I was heading in. It’s all about color with these tanks.  The green one is pretty low cut and has wider arm holes.  I’m a little more conservative and like the blue one, which is less revealing, but not by much 🙂

Court Action

Court Action

Lower East Side
Chrystie St. Courts

The Basketball courts at Sara Delano Roosevelt Park are a great place to watch pick up games. Street ball in the city is a classic New York staple. Although these courts aren’t as intense and competitive as the West Fourth Courts (The Cage) in the Village, they have their own flavor and attract a more playful, neighborhood vibe.

Ankle Focus

Ankle Focus

Upper East Side
Central Park

This duo is all about what’s happening below the chins. From two tone shoes, to patterned socks and rolled up cuffs, these guys show how to make ankles stylish without being so obvious about it. Also like how they mix solid colors, with each having the contrast of one light color against a darker color.

Same Block, Two Lapels, Sharp Shoulders

Midtown

Park Ave and 48th St.

Different types of lapels are a matter of preference. I couldn’t decide which of these two types I liked more, the narrow or classic. But why debate about such trivial matters. Some days you feel narrow, others you feel classic. The one thing I did notice in both of these jackets is the sharp shoulders. The narrow lapel jacket is higher and tighter in the shoulders, while the classic lapel jacket slightly slopes, but still frames well. Either way, they both look great.

Shades of Grey

I personally love the color grey. It’s a fundamental basic in my wardrobe. I even like it as a base color better than black. I love it when I spot grey on guys, whether it be a suit, coloring of the hair, a cool accessory or a coat. Check out the shades of grey in this gallery and how they diversify it.
