The Perfect Fade

The Perfect Fade

Flatiron District
Fifth Avenue and 23rd St.

There are brands out there that treat and wash their jeans to give them that lived in, faded look. I think the only way to achieve that look to perfection is if you actually break them down yourself so that they mold to your body and weather and age from constant use and everyday wear and tear. There are some jeans you want crisp and stiff and other times, there’s nothing like a pair of old faves that have gathered some mileage and look as such.

From The Back

From The Back

Broadway and 23rd St.

I’m definitely feeling the style and color of those Nike’s he’s sporting. I’m much more prone to take shots from a front or side view, but I’m glad that a good back shot seems to look just as good.

Fresh White

5th Avenue and 24th St.

I recently read a quote from a well known menswear designer where he stated that every man should own a white shirt because if you’re tan or dark skinned, it adds amazing contrast and if you’re pale or light skinned it makes you look less so and brings out more color to your face. Wise words and I couldn’t agree more. Oh this gent, I’m digging how the white shirt contrasts the redness in his facial hair.

How you top off a suit is just as important as the suit itself. Invest in a good overcoat!

Flashback Friday: Head Down

Flashback Friday: Head Down

Flatiron District
5th Ave. and 22nd St.

I needed a shot that reminded me of warmer temperatures today since I mentioned in today’s earlier post that it is pretty cold in New York. I chose this guy with his awesome sleeve of tattoos that I captured right before Labor Day last year. I like how the brim of his hat conceals his eyes, but no matter, since you’re still drawn to him.It’s the tats that does it.

Setting The Tone

Setting The Tone

Flatiron District
5th Ave. and 22nd St.

Forget resolutions in 2014 but question the tone you’d like to set in the new year. Like this gent, I’m interested in being more in command of how I present myself to the world, which is a sign of respect to others around me. Looking your best is a gift to others.

Military Peacoat

Miltary Peacoat

Flatiron District
Broadway and 23rd St.

It’s pretty much black coat weather/season this time of year. The streets are blanketed with it. If must wear basic black at least make it a bit stylish with some details like this guy – double breasted, military style, slanted flack pockets, a nice collar and of course a good fit.

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.

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.
