Weekday Weekend

Slow Week 054 copy
NoHo
Lafayette and Great Jones St.

Having a day off during the week can feel like you’re on holiday. Walking around the streets you get a sense of others who are in the same position, running errands, leisurely reading in coffee shops, walking dogs etc. But mostly it’s the sense that you can dress down a bit, like this fella sporting the athletic-preppy-day off look.

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.

Navy Hooded Coat

Navy Hooded Coat

Hudson Square
Varick and Vandam St.

This type of hooded, 3/4 length coat was exactly the type I was looking for all this past fall and winter but could never find the right one. I did come close to finding one from the label Wings + Horns at Steven Alan but it was too long. But alas as the cold weather is waning, I’ll have to resume my hunt next year and I’ll have this pic as a reference.

First Day Of Spring

First Day Of Spring

Greenwich Village
MacDougal and 8th St.

There seems to be a palpable, collective sigh of relief in the air that spring is finally here, although the weather has yet to catch up, but no matter as long as it’s official. I’m so ready for the days of dressing without a coat or jacket and just wearing a sweater or crewneck like this fellow and being outside more.

Kareem on 8th St.

Kareem on 8th St.

Greenwich Village
MacDougal and 8th St.

I love this all black outfit Kareem is wearing. The gold buttons on the overcoat, the texture of the motocross pants, the kicks, crewneck and his specs are just so on point. Everything he’s doing works.

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.

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.

Hoodie Shirt Jacket

Hoodie Shirt Jacket

Nolita
Houston and Elizabeth St.

Another hybrid in the form of a shirt jacket with a hood. He has all sorts of variants of grey in his outfit but breaks it up with some red, white and blue in his crewneck shirt. I’m digging the classic Adidas shell toe sneakers.

Calvin Dutton

Calvin Dutton

West Chelsea
10th Ave. and 27th St.

As I was walking up Tenth Avenue on my way to watch a friend’s football game, I noticed a slew of people unsuccessfully trying to hail cabs as it was that particular time of day when the shift changes. Such a circumstance led me to stumble upon Calvin also making the attempt. I noticed his bright yellow Nike high tops from across the way and dashed traffic to his side of the street to ask to take his photograph which he kindly agreed to. I love the way Calvin mixed his grey top coat with a cool and casual outfit underneath and gave a splash of color with his kicks and they way he rolled up his jeans to give them full exposure. I guess there is an upside to the no cabs quandary we in the city find ourselves in from time to time.

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.

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

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.

White Out

White Out

West Village
Hudson and Leroy St.

This was one of the last shots I took during an afternoon of shooting on the west side. The sun was setting, the light was fading, but a pop of white caught my eye as I was about to call it a day. I’m one of those people that loves white clothing, owns a fair share of it, but it gets relegated to the back of the drawers or closet because I’m more concerned that it will get dirty easily, rather than enjoying the clothes. After catching this pic, I’ll be sure to lose that idiosyncrasy. There really is nothing like a white long sleeved crew neck t-shirt. It’s one of the only few items that looks good with jeans, shorts, khakis, work out pants and even swim trunks.
