The white shirt and khaki combo is so classic and one of my favorite summer looks. Keep your striped shirts. I’ll take this look any day. That tee and those kicks are so crisp. I am so down with white in the summer.
Broome and Watts St.
For all this cold, debilitating weather we’ve had this past week in New York, I am reminded of one of the best sunsets I witnessed in my ‘hood last summer and as the light was going down, I was fortunate to capture one last shot of the day in the form of this fitted henley.
Lower East Side
Orchard and Delancey St.
Most typical henleys usually have three buttons, but the one this guy is wearing goes a bit deeper and is more revealing with five buttons. Another great alternative to “showing some skin”
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.
Prince and Greene St.
Full patterned and printed t-shirts are a great way to break up the monotony of solid colors, logos or t-shirts with singular pictures or designs. I never thought a floral t-shirt would be something I would be into, but after seeing this guy’s cool shirt, I may have to reconsider.
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.
This gang of European tourists are all pretty like minded in their shoe game. Decidedly, the consensus seems to be white sneakers. I like how the two guys in the forefront of the picture are wearing the same pair and then how the two guys in the background also have the same pair on. I personally, like the non-Nike shoes.
Spring and Mulberry Sts.
The last couple of years, I’ve been noticing the the neon/fluorescent trend flourish. While it has died down considerably the last few years (thank God), I’ve realized that it actually looks reasonably good if it’s done in small doses, like this guy, who uses it sparingly in part of the frame of his sunglasses and sneakers. If you’re going to do it, tread lightly.
As the summer winds down (I go by the official date of Sept 21st. None of this after Labor day nonsense), I decided to do a theme of tank tops this week to say goodbye to the long, hot days in the city. First up, a crisp, white, athletic tank on a guy post workout, chilling on the steps of Equinox gym in Soho.
One of the rare occurrences where The Highline was not crowded. The red shorts really made him stand out.
9th Ave. and 23rd St.
Chinos/Khakis usually come in the base color of beige, but I like when they’re given a bit more saturation. The brown tone of his chinos is one of those colors you’re always on the look out for but can rarely find. I need my browns to be the perfect shade of brown – LOL
8th Ave. and 14th St.
I captured a classic, clean cut, sporty, all American look with this fellow. Blue jeans, a simple, white, pocket t-shirt and a New York Yankees cap with the brim slightly curved. This is what I refer to as no-brainer style.
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.
9th St. and University Place
Now that the weather is warming up, guys are bringing their t- shirt game hardcore. Less really is more when it comes to this garment. A simple, white, fitted t-shirt like the one this guy is wearing, where the hem and the sleeve lengths aren’t too long is the most flattering way to wear it.
