Square Shades

Square Shades
West Village
Greewnwich Avenue and 11th St.

I’m digging the shape of these sunglasses. I’m partial to my classic Gucci aviators which cost a fortune but I’ve had for many years. It was because of seeing these shades that lit the spark to branch out and find a different shape. So far, the search has proved to be fruitless and I’m not a cheap sunglasses type of guy, but at least now I have a reference for what appeals to me.

For The Love Of Nike

NikeGreenwich Village
MacDougal and 8th St.

I don’t know what it is about Nike, but to quote an acquaintance – “There’s something about the swoosh”. I’ve tried other athletic brands – Adidas, New Balance, Under Armour et al., but they don’t do it for me quite like Nike does and I inevitably keep coming back around. Knowing where your loyalty lies saves a lot of time, not to mention money.

Neon Shirt

Neon Shirt

TriBeCa
6th Avenue and Laight St.

Brighter days are here again and so is brighter apparel. Neon in my wardrobe usually finds itself in very subtle ways – shoe laces, on a small logo, or a pocket and usually on some form of athletic gear. If you do wear it, it’s best to stick to just one item as you can clearly see it stands out and speaks for itself.

Nike Socks

Nike Socks

Chelsea
9th Ave. and 29th St.

Black Nike socks pulled all the way up to the chins is all the rage in the city. I spot so many of them on guys that I could do a whole feature just on that. Truth be told, whenever I go for a run I do have the same socks and wear them constantly.

Saturday Casual

Saturday Casual

West Village
Bedford and Leroy St.

I was drawn to Ohrun’s casual weekend outfit by virtue of the mix of color in his comfortable athletic wear. He gives a great example of how to be sporty without being slovenly.

Citibike Cruise

Citibike Cruise

Lower Manhattan
World Trade Center

This guy wasn’t even riding his Citibike, but rather standing on the pedals as he let it cruise down a slope hurtling towards me. However he rides the bike, I’m guessing he was he coming or going towards some sort of workout based on the way he’s dressed.

De Witt Clinton Park/11th Ave. and 53rd St.

My friend Ben Brown will be featured on the blog in the near future. This is a preview shot of him at Dewitt Clinton Park playing the game he so loves – football. As Ben would say – “Killin’ it”.

Labeled Up

Labeled Up

Chelsea
Blue Bottle Coffee

Labels, labels, labels. This guy has aplenty.Even his coffee cup has a label. I think when an outfit is more athletic and sport related, there tends to be more of stamp with labels. His bike from Bianchi is pretty stylin’ in the white shade and he got a lot of compliments on it from people passing by.

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.

Battery Run

Battery Run

Lower Manhattan
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.

In The Hood

Chelsea
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.

Gold Bar

Little Italy
Gold Bar

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.

Thanks to all who commented and liked the parade of guys in tanks this past week. One last tank shot to close out the summer. Until next tank season.

Grey Tank

Grey Tank

Flatiron District
5th Ave. and 18th St.

The simplicity of a grey tank, work out shorts and flashy kicks. Also notice the small tattoo on his arm and his hand. Less is more.

Saturday Tank

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 20th St.

I have a fondness for this tank shirt because it advertises the logo of the volunteer organization New York Cares, which I used to volunteer for, until I moved to another organization. I always liked their logo and colors. As a workout outfit goes, I like how he puts it all together.

Running Tank

Running Tank

Midtown
7th Ave. and 28th St.

I could shoot a whole blog on runner’s in New York, but I’ll leave that niche to another blogger. Running is one instance where I advocate going sleeveless.

Tuesday Tank

Leggings

Union Square
Broadway and 18th St.

Sweat drenched on his tank and a head full of slick wet hair. The kind of look that can only be achieved by a good workout and getting the heart rate up. I’m liking the shorts over leggings look as well.

Tank Week

Equinox

SoHo
Equinox SoHo

As the summer winds down (I go by the official date of Sept 21st. None of this after Labor day nonsense), I decided to do a theme of tank tops this week to say goodbye to the long, hot days in the city. First up, a crisp, white, athletic tank on a guy post workout, chilling on the steps of Equinox gym in Soho.

Dark Tones

Chelsea
9th Ave.and 17th St.

The black and navy color combo is a bit heavy on the dark shades, so the best way to break it up is to add some color. This guy has the good fortune of having some ink with color and adds a flash of neon with the soles of his shoes and laces.  It also helps that his skin tone is a bit light to give the black and navy some contrast.

Wednesday’s post “Court Action” proved to be very popular, so here’s a facing shot of one of the guys who only got a profile shot in the previous post.

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.

Digging his dark grey over grey color block design on his baseball crewneck shirt. He fills it out pretty well also.
