Black Biker

Black Biker

SoHo
6th Ave. and Thompson St.

There are two occassions where an all black ensemble is very appropriate – the first being super formal in a tuxedo, the second being badass in some leather, jeans and riding a motorcycle. From the helmet, to the gloves, to the shades and the Ducati he is dipped in black but just to break things up a tad I love the red swoosh on the Nikes.

Alex Kang

Alex Kang

NoHo
Broadway and Bleecker St.

I met Alex at a Club Monaco event where I asked him to pose for me since I liked his outfit so much. Turns out he’s got loads of style when I visited his Tumblr page http://kangalex.com where there are several great shots of him wearing some pretty nice threads and he even makes his own signature bracelet which he sells on his site. Spending an afternoon shopping with him throughout Soho and Nolita I could tell he had a good eye and good taste.I covet his wardrobe.

Military Leather

Military Leather

Greenwich Village
6th Avenue and 9th St.

This is one of my favorite leather pieces of seen on the streets. What can I say? – I’m a sucker for the four pocket jacket.

Noir

Noir

SoHo
Broome and Thompson St.

The heft and weight of all those black layers mixed with texture makes for a standout look. Those are also some cool leather pants.

Leather Arms

Leather Arms

West Village
Bleecker and Perry St.

This varsity jacket with the brown leather sleeves and blue contrast is a great piece and can easily work in the fall, winter or spring. He adds some nice pops of red with his scarf and laces on his Nikes.

TriBeCa
West Broadway and Franklin St.

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.

Leather Bomber

Leather Bomber

Chinatown
Grand and Elizabeth St.

I wonder if his leather jacket is vintage or not. A lot of brands nowadays like to give their clothes that worn-in, old, vintage-y look. Some are successful at it while other brands make it look studied. Or I could be wrong altogether and he purchased it new and had years of wear and tear to give it that lived in look which is how I feel most leather jackets should look.

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.

For Jules

For Jules

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 15th St.

I recently re-connected with my old college friend Julie whom I hadn’t seen in a long time. It was like no time had passed at all during our reunion. On one of our recent outings together we spotted this super cool looking dude. That hat, that leather and those shades mixed with the hoodie and tight black jeans cemented the swagger he was pulling off that day and of course Julie was quite enamored by it all so I dedicate this post to her.

Chilly in Chelsea

Chelsea
10th Ave. and 19th St.

I was gallery hopping on a Saturday afternoon in Chelsea and it was frigid out. I was surprised to find this French gentleman sitting outside without a coat working on his laptop. He was a very friendly Frenchie who was all smiles, polite and cheerfully agreed to let me take his picture while he tapped away on his laptop. He even said “my pleasure”. Most of my French friends are the most stylish friends I have, but rarely are they as sunny as this one.

Stand Up

Stand Up

Union Square
18th and Broadway

I was with my subject Garrett from the blog (Hi Garrett) when I spotted this fellow. Good thing he was there as I was distracted talking to him and we both saw him and all I remember was Garrett barking at me “get him, get him” with my camera. The consensus between us was that his monk strap shoes were pretty solid, while I personally liked the collar of his four button peacoat and the maroon color of his pants.

Texture

Texture

Flatiron District
5th Ave. and 23rd St.

It’s all about the detailing of texture here with this fellow’s ensemble. The quilting on his leather jacket, the lining at the knees of his motocross pants and even the netting on his cap are a great way to get playful without overstating or being loud with patterns or prints. His outfit is all black, but with all that texture it saves it from being bland. Digging the white Converse kicks and Gucci belt as well.

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.

Flashy Shades

Flashy Shades

Midtown
Park Ave. and 52nd St.

I like how he’s sporting a sharp Midtown suit, with a handsome briefcase but loosens it up just a tad with his flashy oversize sunglasses and just a bit of a break in the pant legs. I never associated Park Avenue with being cool, but he shows how to work it in.

Briefcase

Briefcase

Upper East Side
Madison Ave. and East 65th St.

I don’t own, nor have ever owned a briefcase in my life, but if I ever purchased one, something tells me it would look like the one this gentleman is carrying. The color is bold yet tasteful, the leather looks rich, soft and sumptuous, the design is elegant and classic and it looks bloody expensive which any great briefcase should look like.

The Beginning – part 1

Back in February when I began compiling pics for this blog, my awesome friend David lent me his camera to start shooting. I went to his place to pick it up, we hung out for a bit and then I left. I had not even walked a few feet, when this guy caught my eye with his cool leather jacket. I love the stitching, the fit, the slit zippers pockets on the chest, the stand up collar and the tabs on the shoulders. Cool tats on his neck as well.

Suffice it to say, in New York, you don’t have to travel far to find inspiration.
