Doppelganger

Doppelganger

Greenwich Village
5th Avenue and 11th St.

This fellow reminds me of the caucasian version of myself. I’m pretty much that height and body type,I wear my hair like his, like him, I sport aviators, his monochromatic style of dress is how I do it and without looking at the label I know I own that exact same scarf he’s wearing. I think we look good 🙂

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.

Wide Lapels

Wide Lapels

Greenwich Village
University Place and 12th St.

This is one of the bigger, heftier coats I’ve seen this winter. The wide lapels are old school and I’ve seen their re-emergence on coats on a few guys around town lately. I’m digging his printed scarf as well as his navy beanie which matches nicely to the coat.

Stitched Blazer

Stitched Blazer

Upper East Side
87th and Lexington

I really like the design of this guy’s jacket because it’s something you rarely see – a quilted/stitched blazer jacket. Having a classic piece with just a bit of a twist can really set you apart and make a world of difference.

Lafayette Atkinson on 8th Ave.

Lafayette Atkinson on 8th Ave.

Chelsea
8th Ave. and 17th St.

It was all about the cut, stitching details and how Lafayette’s double breasted coat was fitting to his frame that cemented it for me, not to mention the nice way his collar stood up, the way he wrapped his scarf and the slick, brown/burgundy leather gloves that added a nice pop. Also, slit side chest pockets on a coat are the best invention ever. I have some in my Rag & Bone winter coat and they are the best hand warmers and so convenient to stick my phone in.

TriBeCa Dads

TriBeCa Dads

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.

Urban Cowboy

Urban Cowboy

TriBeCa
Hudson and North Moore

This fellow is giving his best urban western look with that denim shirt and scarf underneath. It’s part city slick and city cowboy.

Fitted Jacket


Union Square
14th Street

Keep your bulky, shapeless, boxy winter coats and jackets. Like this gent, I’ll stick to outerwear that molds and flatters my shape. I like to keep things tight and right.

Head Gear

Head Gear

East Village
Bowery and 2nd St.

For these serious temps, you need some serious coverage and this guy goes all out in this hat/hood hybrid. Is there a name for this sort of thing? If so and you know it, let me know.

Tiffany’s Doorman

Tiffany's Doorman

Uptown
Tiffany’s/ Fifth Ave. and 57th St.

The thing that struck me about the Tiffany’s doorman is that his scarf and tie were cleverly matched to the color of their infamous “Tiffany’s blue” on the store’s boxes and bags. Tiffany’s is certainly not the most masculine store, as it seems to cater more to women who in my experience go ape shit for anything that comes in that blue box, but they do actually sell men’s jewelry. The great thing is that the items they do have for men lean towards classic and simple.

Peeking Out

Peeking Out

East Village
Third Ave. and 11th Street

It’s that time of year to drape layers on top of layers. Sometimes I can even catch a glimpse of the person peeking out from underneath all those layers. I like how this guy’s black coat is saved from blandness with his patterned snow flake gloves and red and blue plaid scarf.

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.

Bundle Up

Bundle Up

Greenwich Village
5th Ave. and 11th St.

Today feels truly cold in New York. The most frigid in a long time and yet I’m still able to capture stylish cold weather looks. Layering heavily is the way to go if still want to look your best while shielding yourself from the elements. I particularly like the shawl collar on this guy’s pea coat and contrasting the blue with the light hat and scarf.

Flash of Red

Flash of Red

Greenwich Village
5th Ave. and 12th St.

Red is one of the best colors to pick up the drab winter weather wardrobe as displayed by this guy. It just gives it that nice pop and is best done through the accessories – hats, gloves, layering piece etc.

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.

Driving Shoes

Driving Shoes

Greenwich Village
6th Ave. and Bleecker St.

Driving shoes or driving moccasins are soft loafers with little rubber bumps for soles. They are very leisurely. I also equate them with being very Italian because the luxury label Tod’s from Italy makes the best and ahem….some of the most expensive pairs. I feel they instantly add that European touch as evidenced by this fellow.

Electric Blue

Electric Blue

SoHo
Spring and Sullivan St.

I don’t even like hats or electric blue for that matter, so why do I now want one after seeing how well this guy wears his? Such is the inspiration I see on other guys that gets me to change my mind. Never say never is the lesson here.

Camel Coat

Camel Coat

Flatiron District
Broadway and 21st St.

Today is the first day I’m breaking out my top coat for fall. In honor of that occasion, I’m posting the first top coat shot I’ve taken this fall. This gent’s is slightly boxy which makes it look and feel more enveloping, a bit like a blanket. The tie of the scarf is excellent as well as are the frames of his glasses. He definitely likes his shades of brown.

Boxer

Boxer

Chelsea
7th Ave. and 19th St.

I found this guy bypassing a slew of open cabs that all stopped to catch him as a fare, only to find that someone was picking him up as they hauled this box into the trunk. Him standing on the street gave me enough time to take a decent amount of shots. This is a great cold day outfit with his toggle coat, hat and scarf. I prefer dressing like this on colder days as opposed to any sort of puffy coat or bubble jacket.

All Black and Slick

TriBeCa
TriBeCa Grand Hotel

It’s interesting to see people doing their jobs in the city and if they look good doing it, all the better. I noticed the doorman of this hotel trying to hail a cab for a guest and good thing for me he was out there a while with no luck, as a lot of cabs were taken or off duty because I was able to get a few shots of him. That is some mighty slick hair he’s sporting matched with his all black ensemble. My favorite part is the big, oversize scarf he’s wearing and the way he ties it. It has the proportions of a mini blanket. I definitely gotta get me one of those next winter.

Missoni Man

Missoni Man

TriBeCa
West Broadway and White St.

The luxury Italian Brand Missoni is the creator of this ubiquitous print seen here on this gentleman via his scarf. It’s a classic, non-trendy print, somewhat like cheetah print. Fashion comes and goes, but certain styles are timeless. A lot of this outfit is timeless in fact – the navy pea coat, the straight leg denim and brown wing tip shoes.

The Beginning – Part 2

The Beginning - Part 2

SoHo
Spring and Sullivan St.

I am spoiled and grateful to live in SoHo. I can capture a lot of style, just by walking out my front door. But I like the variety of other neighborhoods. In fact, because it’s so easy for me to just shoot in SoHo, it gives me the impetus to branch out to other parts of town. This shot was taken right at the corner of where I live. So to reiterate, (see part 1), I don’t have to travel far to get the goods.

I can’t tell if his pant leg is purposefully rolled up or if it’s circumstantial. Either way, it’s a nice touch. I also like the color blocking of his coat and pants.
