The Hobbler

The Hobbler

West Village
Hudson and Christopher St.

This is a man after my own heart as his outfit is pretty much a replica of my daily summer ensemble – Nike kicks, black fitted jeans and solid colored t-shirt. I much more clean cut, so I’d forgo the the beard, backpack and crutches.

West Village Weekender

West Village Weekender
West Village
Bleecker and Christopher St.

There is so much about this guy and this couple that is “West Village”. For those of you who live in New York and have observed the clogged streets of the West Village on weekend, you know what I mean – the stroller, the Magnolia Bakery bag, the plaid shirt and black jeans, the Saturday stubble. All the downtown cliches apply, but it does look good.

Square Shades

Square Shades
West Village
Greewnwich Avenue and 11th St.

I’m digging the shape of these sunglasses. I’m partial to my classic Gucci aviators which cost a fortune but I’ve had for many years. It was because of seeing these shades that lit the spark to branch out and find a different shape. So far, the search has proved to be fruitless and I’m not a cheap sunglasses type of guy, but at least now I have a reference for what appeals to me.

White Jeans

White Jeans
West Village
Hudson and Christopher St.

It’s officially summer in the city and bring on the slew of white jeans. I personally can’t bring myself to go this white, so I’ve opted for a stone, grey, light wash that feels less vibrant white. I didn’t realize how much wear they would get, but I’ve been seduced by light jeans.

Mad Hatter

Mad Hatter

West Village
Greenwich Ave and 10th St.

How nice to see a proper hat in sea of baseball caps. His accessories game is pretty tight with this ensemble and he’s even sporting some colored nails.

Black Camo Shorts

Black Camo Shorts

West Village
Hudson and Charles St.

Here we are back to shorts season and first out of the gate is a nice pair of black camoflouge, high above the knee and without all that bagginess or looseness that can make a guy’s legs look thinner than they are. Like most things on this blog, it’s all about the fit.

Printed Tie

Printed Tie

West Village
Varick and Carmine St.

This tie stood out to me because of it’s subtle diamond print and how well the pattern is spaced out on the tie so that it doesn’t look too busy. I also like how it’s a jewel toned color blue against the navy suit.

Saturday Casual

Saturday Casual

West Village
Bedford and Leroy St.

I was drawn to Ohrun’s casual weekend outfit by virtue of the mix of color in his comfortable athletic wear. He gives a great example of how to be sporty without being slovenly.

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.

Cab Couple

Cab Couple

West Village
6th Ave. and Washington Place

Just a typical casual Sunday with a sporty dude with the requisite scruff, Yankees cap,hoodie jacket,jeans and sneakers and his lady hailing a cab.

End Of Work Day

 End Of Work Day

West Village
Hudson and Grove St.

When it’s all over at 6pm for the office workers in the West Village, it’s a great walk in that beautiful area. Nice way to end the day.

Drive By

Drive By

West Village
Greenwich Ave. and 12th St.

This shot was literally a drive by as I was in my friend’s car in the passenger seat and we were waiting for the light to change when I spotted this fella approaching and as the light turned green she slowly drove past as I rolled the window down so I could capture him. For me, it’s all about those crisp, white, Nike kicks.

Silver

Silver

West Village
7th Ave. and 12th St.

Digging this man’s quilted, short, spread collar, grey, snap button coat with two different breast pockets. It’s even better that it matches his grey hair on top.

Grocery Day

Grocery Day

West Village
West 4th and Barrow St.

There is some great layering going on with this fella’s outfit. Different colors, patterns and textures all add up to weight and heft in his outfit without the bulk. The green,blue and brown combo also give nice visual stimulation.

Sporty Bomber

Sporty Bomber

West Village
Hudson and Morton St.

I spotted this guy while sitting across the street in the West Village with his girlfriend. Classic Air Jordans, a straight brim baseball hat and bomber jacket with logo all adds up to a sporty, casual look on a Saturday afternoon

The Opening

The Opening

West Village
Bleecker and Bank St.

A little ventilation keeps you cool if you tend to run warm. I like this shirt jacket with the double breast pockets. The way he has it opened up slightly towards the bottom creates an ease about the look. Nice touch with the way he flips the collar

Sunday Morning Coffee Run

Sunday Morning Coffee Run

West Village
West 4th and 12th St.

I took this shot early Sunday morning on my way to a breakfast meeting. What I love about his look is that it’s the perfect casual weekend day look. He didn’t step out of his apartment to grab coffee in some lazy sweats or worse, pajamas. He still made the effort to look put together but in a relaxed sort of way. It feels thrown together without much thought or effort for a Sunday morning errand, but it still manages to look presentable and not sloppy or slovenly.

Joe Coffee

Joe's Coffee

West Village
Waverly Place

This post is more about my love for Joe Coffee in the West Village than it is about style. I conducted an interview there the other day and was happy to learn that they finally accept credit and debit cards instead of cash only, which has been the case since its inception. So to spot a guy with a Joe’s cup, strolling down Waverly by the subway is a very New York shot to me.

Gingham Guy

Gingham

West Village
West 12th St. and 4th St.

I wore a gingham shirt last night to a party which I haven’t worn in a while and it was very flattering. It reminded me to wear it more often and to post a picture of this guy also wearing it well and well into sunset.

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.

Fashionable Couple

Fashionable Couple

West Village
7th Avenue South

What’s even better than taking pictures of guys with a good sense of style is when their significant other is just as equally stylish. Two for the price of one. This couple was strolling in the West Village, both looking very put together. For him, it’s yet another example of how every guy should own a navy blue suit. It’s fool proof.

Backpacker

Backpacker

West Village
Christopher and Bedford St.

Just when you think you can put away the shorts and tees for fall, the weather hits a balmy 70+ degrees.

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.

Waiting On The Corner

Waiting On The Corner

West Village
Corner Bistro

Corner Bistro is one of the best burger joints in the city. I found this guy waiting for a date at – where else – the corner.  The second wait comes when you get inside and have to wait in line. His colored t-shirt made him stand out.

Short Sleeved Henley

Short Sleeved Henley

West Village
7th Ave. South and Barrow St.

A henley shirt is a great alternative to your everyday t-shirt. Henleys usually come in long sleeve form, so it’s nice to see a short sleeve version. I’m digging the way he matches his whites at the top and bottom and contrasts it with his dark jeans and backpack.

Wide Leg Shorts

Wide Leg Shorts

West Village
Hudson and Charles St.

Today’s weather turned fortuitously warm. So much so, that I spotted several outfits with shorts. What drew my eye to these pair were how wide and bell shaped they looked. Many guys have unsightly wide leg shorts, but it’s the short length here that gives it a less sloppy feel.

Pink Pants

Pink Pants

West Village
Christopher and Bleecker Sts.

Not only are they pink, but they are also pin striped. The slim fit and pairing of a white polo and dark suede boots really makes it all look sharp.

Bros

Bros

West Village
Bedford and Downing

The close cropped hair, the clean cut looks,the casual t-shirts, the khaki shorts and sandals and boat shoes – these guys have preppy “bros” written all over them.

Purple Dress Shirt

Purple Dress Shirt

West Village
Jackson Square

If we’re going to be accurate, the shirt color is more lavender than purple. Don’t be afraid of the word lavender guys, since you can see it looks great.

Two Guys, Two Tanks

Two Guys, Two Tanks

West Village
7th Ave. and Greenwich Ave.

I stumbled upon this couple leaving Roasting Plant Coffee in the West Village as I was heading in. It’s all about color with these tanks.  The green one is pretty low cut and has wider arm holes.  I’m a little more conservative and like the blue one, which is less revealing, but not by much 🙂

Beach Days

Beach Days

West Village
6th Ave. and Bedford St.

In the summer, the lines tend to blur with beach attire hitting the concrete streets. I can definitely picture this guy hanging out in Montauk with his very nautical look, swim trunk style shorts and espadrilles-esque Tom’s shoes.

Understated

West Village
West 4th and Perry St.

Simple, classic, unfussy, and grown up. Those words spring to mind when I look at this guy’s style.  I love the strength of  his good watch, good crisp white shirt, good glasses, good jeans, good hair. Nothing more, nothing less.

Boys Will Be Boys

Boys Will Be Boys

West Village
Greenwich Ave. and Perry St.

A couple of guys having lunch on a bench and everything is halted when a beautiful woman comes their way. Yes, this is how we men operate when we see something desirable, in a word – distracted! Notice how these two are in practical unison each cupping a sandwich with both hands, beverages on the ground between their legs, mid-chew and both staring up at the Louis Vuitton clad female approaching. Clothes wise they’re both even sporting colored khakis, button down shirts and watches.

Classic Polo

Classic Polo

West Village
Hudson and Barrow St.

Nothing beats a classic. A classic saves you from having to think. You just throw it on and head out the door – simple. Polo shirts can be found anywhere and everywhere, but there’s something about a Ralph Lauren one that makes you feel you’re wearing the real deal. This guy’s pink version is a great fit.

Model Behavior

Model Behavior

West Village
Hudson and Clarkson St.

Some people just look like they’re models. I would say this guy qualifies. He actually resembles a particular male model that I often see in ads in men’s style magazines, but since male models tend to remain more anonymous rather than their female counterparts, I couldn’t tell you who I’m referring to. Regardless, he just has that model look.

White Out

White Out

West Village
Hudson and Leroy St.

This was one of the last shots I took during an afternoon of shooting on the west side. The sun was setting, the light was fading, but a pop of white caught my eye as I was about to call it a day. I’m one of those people that loves white clothing, owns a fair share of it, but it gets relegated to the back of the drawers or closet because I’m more concerned that it will get dirty easily, rather than enjoying the clothes. After catching this pic, I’ll be sure to lose that idiosyncrasy. There really is nothing like a white long sleeved crew neck t-shirt. It’s one of the only few items that looks good with jeans, shorts, khakis, work out pants and even swim trunks.

Shades of Grey

I personally love the color grey. It’s a fundamental basic in my wardrobe. I even like it as a base color better than black. I love it when I spot grey on guys, whether it be a suit, coloring of the hair, a cool accessory or a coat. Check out the shades of grey in this gallery and how they diversify it.
