Khaki Shirt

Khaki Shirt

Chelsea
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.

Dylan Ostrow on Kenmare

Derek on Kenmare

Nolita
Kenmare and Mott St.

I stopped Dylan on a Sunday stroll and asked to take his picture. He was up for it. I mainly like his green denim that matched his camo backpack and that he was wearing bracelets as well. His outfit was centered around earth tones which is great if you’re going for more subtle color.

Matching Hat

Matching Hat

SoHo
Crosby St.

A hat person, I am not, but I always admire guys on the street who wear them well and make them look cool such a this guy. Here he matches his hat to his shirt but there is this nice offset with the wild pattern, seemingly paint splattered and colored sneakers. The one rip in his jeans on the knee, also seems to be strategically placed.

Casual Plaid

Casual Plaid

TriBeCa
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.

Untucked

Untucked

Midtown South
7th Ave. and 28th St.

I was shooting a guy for the blog the other day and he asked me whether he should have his shirt tucked in or untucked. I told him that’s a loaded question because so many factors come into play – the type of shirt, outfit, pant, layering piece you wear with it etc. It’s all about proportions and theme of the outfit. This look is more casual, he’s wearing an everyday pair of jeans, so untucked looks more appropriate.

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!

Hands Full

Hands Full

SoHo
Spring and Sullivan St.

This gent’s back was towards me and walking away from me when I spotted him, but luckily he turned around to get something from his car which he forgot and was able to capture his classic, all blue ensemble. For me it’s all about his square belt buckle.

East Village

This guy is owning his preppy casual look and owning the street as well.

Cab Block

Cab Block

Hell’s Kitchen
9th Ave. and 40th St.

It seems as though we’re always either hailing or dodging cabs in this city. This cab, blocked my shot as it did this biker’s way, but I still managed to capture his good spread color shirt. Nice shade of light blue as well.

U Neck

U Neck

Greenwich Village
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.

The White Shirt

The White Shirt

Greenwich Village
MacDougal St. and Minetta Lane

The iconic, classic white shirt. A staple. Seasonless. So crisp, clean and fresh. It brightens up any man and immediately makes him look pulled together. That is the power of the white shirt.

View From A Window

View From A Window

Lower East Side
Orchard and Rivington

I’m a big fan of double breast pocket shirts like this. I like how he contrasts light blue with dark blue and great pair of glasses. I spotted this guy out the window, across the street while having lunch at Irving Farm Coffee.

Short Hem

Short Hem

Midtown
Madison Square Park

I was reading an article in a men’s fashion magazine the other day that stated button down shirts that you wear un-tucked should be a different length than those you wear tucked. Mainly that an un-tucked shirt should have a shorter hem, so as not to appear too long and sloppy. I couldn’t agree more. Depending on your height and shirt size, it’s all about proportions.

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.

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.

Boots in Summer

Boots in Summer

SoHo
Broome and Mercer Sts.

Usually with an outfit like this, it would be paired with your typical boat shoe, sandal or sneaker. I like how he gives it a dash of personality with these leather lace up boots which surprisingly, makes the look a little more formal.

Business Class

Business  Class

Flatiron District
Lower 5th Ave.

If this is not a polished business class look for flying, then I don’t know what is. But I think all of us could stand to dress up a little more for air travel.

Cross Walk

Cross Walk

Upper West Side
Broadway and 72nd

And then there are some guys that can even make waiting for the light to change look good.
