7th Ave. and 23rd St.
The khaki shirt, like khakis themselves have a perfectly relaxed weekend quality about them. It’s a color more associated with pants, that it’s rare to see it on the top. I’ll have to add it to my list.
West Broadway and Canal St.
This is the type of outfit I would wear on my day off or walking around the city running my errands. I have way too many plaid shirts for my own good, but whatever, I look good in all of them. This guy is perfectly encapsulating how to be laid back, cool and casual.
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!
6th Ave. and Carmine St.
To add some variety to neck styles in your t- shirts, try a U neck. I like the semi slouchy fit of his with the sleeves slightly rolled. A very downtown look.
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.
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.
Upper West Side
Broadway and 72nd
And then there are some guys that can even make waiting for the light to change look good.
