The past few days have been spent running around (though actually I have been biking) looking at all of the spring 2011 clothes that have rotated over to New York. These times of the year are always fun and inspirational. It is also great to be able to see friends that have come to town from all over the world. I tried to stay focused (which was especially tough yesterday after Monday’s late night activities) and document the good stuff I found and saw. Hope you enjoy.
If ever the word “dapper” applied to a man, Mr. Jay Walter would be that guy. Mr. Walter has been a fixture in the clothing business for years and is well known by custom suit loving gentlemen all over New York for his long tenure in made-to-measure at Brooks Brothers. I became acquainted with Jay a few years ago when he joined J. Press and started the Ivy League retailer’s own MTM program. Always very kind and eager to chat, it’s worth the trip to Press to see Jay.
While at the opening of the new J.Crew men’s shop on Broadway in NYC, I took the opportunity to do a little “street style” (which I know, the name implies the photos be taken on the street and this is in a store) shoot with Mr. Frank Muytjens, the men’s design lead for J.Crew. You may remember Frank from back in February when he was kind enough to let us check out his workspace. Enjoy!
Mordechai Rubinstein is one of my all time favoite people in the city. Someone I continually look to for inspiration, Mordechai embodies New York cool. When I saw him at a little get together at the Hickey store last night I knew I had to flip-the-script on Mr. Mort and take some photos. Just a coincidence that Mordechai is wearing a Barbour coat like a previous Street Style photo that is now known as “The Aaron Levine Incident.” If you aren’t familiar with Mr. Rubinstein’s excellent blog, you have a lot of explaining to do. Mister Mort.
I had lunch today with Aaron Levine, the design director for Hickey. Not only is Aaron a stylish guy, he’s as nice as they come. No wonder Hickey is so cool.
The Project trade show is one of the few times of the year that any sort of good style descends upon Las Vegas. In between appointments, I managed to get a few good street style photos from some of the cooler gentlemen at the show. Not trying to be any sort of Sartorialist or anything, just wanted to share the scene with those of you not in the (sometimes brutal) business of fashion trade shows.
