Throwback Thursday: The Beautiful Ones

Throwback Thursday: The Beautiful Ones

West Village
Bleecker and Perry St.

Last spring, there was one particularly gorgeous day where it seemed every third person I passed was worthy of the blog. This real life Ken and Barbie epitomized the quality of goods I was encountering that day. Just a typical spring day for them, strolling down Bleecker, looking like they stepped out of GQ and Vogue, respectively.

Two Of A Kind

Two Of A Kind

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 23rd St.

With these fellas, they are both giving us the slim fit, straight leg jean look in a dark shade. On bachelor number one, the shade is navy and he pairs it with a graphic tee, gold watch and sneakers, while on bachelor number two, the shade is a black/blue and he sports it with sunglasses, a short sleeved plaid button down shirt and boots. Two dudes, similar denim, their own unique twist.

Grey Denim

Grey Denim

Union Square
17th St. and Broadway

I have the perfect pair of grey jeans from All Saints I bought last summer that I have yet to take to my tailor. After stopping this guy to take his picture with his nice slim pair, hopefully it will light a fire under me to check it off my to do list. I also like his charcoal bomber jacket and how he slides in the color with his green plaid shirt and burgundy boots

Striding Down Kenmare

Striding Down Kenmare

Nolita
Kenmare and Cleveland Place

Some guys can stroll down streets better than others.When you think about it, for most of us the streets are the only runway that we’ll ever get to walk and the passersby are our audience, so might as well give them something nice to look at. I honestly feel if you’re dressed well it changes your molecules and something happens to your gait, your posture, your stride, not to mention the attention you get.

Mad For Plaid

Mad For Plaid

SoHo
Broome and Crosby St.

I was in the GANT Rugger store yesterday in Nolita talking to two guys I’ll be photographing about planning outfits and I asked them both if we could do shots where they’re wearing something other than plaid. One of the guys said “But I love plaid”, the other fellow agreed and I too fell in line with that declaration. So much for variety!

Ink For Two

Ink For Two

West Village
Christopher and Gay St.

I’m so down for this couple and all their tattoos. To me they are dressed sort of preppy and clean cut, but their dual ink gives their look so much edge and versatility.

Side Part

Side Part

Lower East Side
Bowery St.

Ever since Don Draper from the show Mad Men made everyone swoon with his tailored suits and thick, slick mane of hair, the side part has become a ubiquitous trend. But being this is New York, where trends have a short shelf life, this hairstyle has simmered down considerably. Yet once in a while, I spot it on a guy or two and no matter the trends, some guys were just made for this look.

Cardigan & Vest

Cardigan & Vest

SoHo
Spring and Wooster

These two gents are all about their top layer – specifically ones with a v formation and a row of buttons. The cardigan is a perfect layering piece if it’s too warm for a jacket but just chilly enough for a second skin of clothing. The vest is more decorative, but gives an outfit just a hint of formality.

Dark Green Pants

Dark Green Pants

West Village
Bleecker and Grove St.

This is what I like to call the cigarette break pose. In addition to his smoke stance, the color of his chinos in that dark green shade is the real appeal here. The matching of his blue shirt and blue shoes is a nice touch.

Book Break

Book Break

SoHo
Prince and Greene St.

It’s refreshing to see someone’s head buried in an actual book rather than an smartphone or iPad. He looks very dapper enjoying his solitude.

Midnight Blue

Midnight Blue

TriBeCa
West Broadway and White St.

This guy could have gone black all the way, but his dark blue shirt gives his outfit just a hint of contrast. I like how he prefers all dark colors in his outfit, but his phone is white. Also liking the shine of his shoes and cuff of his pants.

Ankle Show-er

Ankle Show-er

Union Square
5th Ave. and 15th St.

Rolled up pants are all over the city, but I’ve never seen an example so emphatic on the reveal of the ankle.

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.

Car Pose

Car Pose

SoHo
6th Ave and Spring St.

It’s all about the way he leans on the car and poses against it – forget driving it.

Rolled Up

West Chelsea
10th Ave. and 29th St.

This guy is all about the rolls – his t-shirt and his pants. I like his choice of putting blue and green together, with his cream colored high tops. I’m rarely a pattern or prints guy, except when it comes to plaid, so I can appreciate solid blocks of color.

Turquoise

SoHo
Spring and Crosby Sts.

I like the way he combines colors in his outfit. The dark maroon pants, anchors his light turquoise shirt and white sneakers.

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

TriBeCa
Canal Street

Nothing better than seeing pants that fit and mold to a frame properly. The dark leather accessories he pairs with his all blue ensemble make him look pretty sharp, even just sipping coffee on Canal St.

Ankle Focus

Ankle Focus

Upper East Side
Central Park

This duo is all about what’s happening below the chins. From two tone shoes, to patterned socks and rolled up cuffs, these guys show how to make ankles stylish without being so obvious about it. Also like how they mix solid colors, with each having the contrast of one light color against a darker color.

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.

Rolled Up

Rolled Up

Flatiron District
5th Ave and 21st St.

Rolled up pant legs are a nice change of pace from the ubiquity of shorts during the summer.  A nice way to add ventilation yet still being fully dressed.
