Ringleader

Hudson Square
Spring and Varick St.

Jewelry is a very personal thing and just like clothing it can be done well or the opposite. I was struck by how this gent placed his rings at the pinky and ring finger. I used to think that all I needed was a good, solid watch but lately I’ve been adding rings, necklaces, bracelets and switching my pieces up. I’ve come to discover some great, not too expensive jewelry makers for guys and it’s nice to focus on the accessories instead of so heavily on the apparel.

Shirt Over Shirt

Slow Week 433 copy

SoHo
West Broadway and Grand St.

I totally advocate a short sleeve t-shirt underneath an open button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up. It’s one of my summer uniforms and favorite ways to layer, with the need for that extra layer for all that hardcore air conditioning and once venturing back out into the heat, you can just wrap it around your waist.

Floods

Floods

Greenwich Village
5th Avenue and 10th St.

Lately I’ve been seeing guys pile on the accessories in addition to tweaks in their outfits and I gotta say, it’s nice to see some methodical detailing going on. Here, it’s the rolled up pants, mixed with the wallet chain, colored shoe laces, army belt, ring, piled on bracelets and even colored headphones. I’ve slowly been adding more rings, necklaces and bracelets to perk up my ensembles and I’m having fun with it all.

Scoopneck T-Shirt

Deep Scoop

SoHo
Broome and Wooster St.

Lately I’ve been toying with adding scoopnecks to my collection of t-shirts. I’m partial to a good old fashioned crew neck, but I’ve realized the wider neck adds more ventilation during those super hot days. The key is finding the right width and depth since too much dip tends to make those types of shirts too feminine looking. I think this guy finds the happy medium where it’s not too wide and not too deep.

Pompadour

Pompadour

Nolita
Lafayette and Spring St.

Guys sporting big hair is something I rarely see, so it’s refreshing to capture a coif with some added weight and heft. The clean, fitted, preppy outfit against his already lean and trim frame makes the hair look even grander. He rocks it.

Mini Check

Mini Check

Chelsea
7th Avenue and 22nd St.

I love a good blue dress shirt. So crisp, so fresh, so summery. The appeal of this one is the gingham pattern in a more subtle, muted, mini version and the contrast of the solid white placket on one side as well as the inside collar.

Garrett In Plaid

Flatiron District
5th Avenue and 18th St.

I can’t with Garrett and his Pendleton plaid shirt. I can’t because I want it. I love the one chest pocket and the color. I also like how he sports a henley shirt underneath the plaid and of course the green nautical bracelet.

Blue Vest

Blue Vest

SoHo
West Broadway and Broome St.

A vest is something that is just not in my own personal wardrobe vernacular and yet having seen this one it inspires me. I don’t necessarily want one, but seeing how this guy makes it look so fly is worth pondering the purchase of a vest should I ever find one that looks right for me.

Green Tee

Green Tee

SoHo
West Broadway and Grand St.

There are only so many ways you can change up a t-shirt, so I like it when it boils down to the subtle details to make it stand out just a bit. With this t-shirt, all it takes is the stripes on the pocket to give it a slight lift.

Lapel Vest

SoHo
Prince and Mercer St.

This was quite the unique vest this guy was wearing with lapels and all the pockets. I love how thrown together he looks and the small accessory details of his tortoiseshell frames, bracelet, watch and key chain..

Throwback Thursday: Above The Crowd

Throwback Thursday: Above The Crowd

SoHo
Prince and Mercer St.

This guy’s height alone made him tower over the typical Saturday afternoon crowds in SoHo. This was taken last spring on one of the first really warm days after the winter which is something I’m jonesing for. I love a great fitted, simple grey sweatshirt-like crewneck like his. It’s one of my uniform pieces in my wardrobe and is worn as such.

Dylan Ostrow on Kenmare

Derek on Kenmare

Nolita
Kenmare and Mott St.

I stopped Dylan on a Sunday stroll and asked to take his picture. He was up for it. I mainly like his green denim that matched his camo backpack and that he was wearing bracelets as well. His outfit was centered around earth tones which is great if you’re going for more subtle color.

Uptown/Downtown

Uptown/Downtown

East Village
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.

Printed Polo

Printed Polo

Upper West Side
Columbus Circle

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.

Short Sleeved Henley

Short Sleeved Henley

West Village
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.

Curved Hem

Curved Hem

SoHo
Crosby St.

What saves this shirt from being another basic long sleeved tee is the slight curve of the hem which reveals his belt.  The fit of the shirt is also very decent.

OBEY Flying Lotus T-Shirt

OBEY Flying Lotus T-Shirt

West Chelsea
10th Ave. and 26th St.

OBEY Clothing is the street wear label created by fine artist/graphic designer Shepard Fairey, who illustrated the infamous “Hope” poster of president Barack Obama. I see his logo on guys all over New York, usually on skater guys wearing OBEY hats.  I was happy to come across a guy wearing the label’s flying lotus tee, as it’s one of my favorite designs of the label.

Graphic Tank

Graphic Tank

Flatiron District
Broadway and 21st St.

I like how this tank is one that is less functional and athletic and has some design and personality to it.

Dark Tones

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.

Boots in Summer

Boots in Summer

SoHo
Broome and Mercer Sts.

Usually with an outfit like this, it would be paired with your typical boat shoe, sandal or sneaker. I like how he gives it a dash of personality with these leather lace up boots which surprisingly, makes the look a little more formal.

Boxy V-Neck

Boxy V-Neck

Meatpacking District
Hudson and 14th St.

This is one in a long line of v-neck shirts I’ve been spotting this summer, but his is slightly different in that it’s bit boxier and a tad looser than others I’ve seen, yet he still manages fill it out well. I guess it’s a testament to his physique that he can do that.

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.

North TriBeCa I Love You

North TriBeCa I Love You

TriBeCa
Greenwich and DesBrosses St.

North TriBeCa is considered a micro-neighborhood; that is a small ‘hood within a larger neighborhood. This is one of my favorite micro-hoods. It is so because the streets are cobblestoned, there’s not much traffic, it’s not too crowded or dense, it’s quiet, it’s right by the Hudson River and it has amazing, albeit expensive real estate. New York has so many neighborhoods that are bustling all the time, so this enclave is a refreshing alternative. It’s very civilized.

It was nice to see this great looking couple strolling down Greenwich St. For the guy, his clothes are a great fit to his body and frame. Having your clothes tailored or fitted to your body makes them look more expensive whether that is the case or not. I’m one of those guys that gets everything from suits to t-shirts taken in. His green t-shirt is a nice shade and blends in with the wall behind him. He’s got some nice slick hair, simple jewelry, rolled up cuffs from his khakis and bright sneakers to stand out a bit. Everything with him is in the details.
