exploring what it means to be the modern man.

From camel to grey, my color scheme is constantly evolving. My signature black armour remains steadfast as ever, it is nice though to look down and see something other than black ;]

Looking to add more “color” to my wardrobe, especially since the cold and snow are unrelenting. Here are some of my favorite camel pieces that I might add to my wardrobe. ASOS, what don’t you have on your website?

The New York winter has been brutal so far, with below zero temperatures (factoring in windchill) and quite a few snowfalls. Thankfully, there are a handful of 30 degree days that seem balmy in comparison. I take every one of these opportunities to shed layers and pull out my coats that aren’t down-filled and shapeless, as cold as it might be.

New York Fashion Week hasn’t been too exciting so far, especially with the cookie cutter formula that designers have been using, intentional or not. In the same way my style continues to evolve, the things that now catch my eye are for the bold, individual and/or minimal, not the trends that come and go. It is exhausting to feel the need to refresh my wardrobe after each runway, too, and that is not how anyone buys clothing, even editors. Duckie Brown was not only refreshing in its color palette and and design, but also in its mood. Romanticism blended effortlessly with a darker undercurrent, and the result was a collection reflective of reality, of hope and some darkness.

NYFW kicked off today with Men’s Day, featuring favorites like Cadet, Chapter, Carlos Campos, David Hart, GARCIAVELEZ and Timo Weiland. Easy check in and all-access to shows at 11am and 5pm. Easy breezy.

David Hart’s nod to the Southwest is not outright my style [I mean, look at all the color!], but the modern interpretation of the 60s and glorification of the West in Hollywood struck a chord, and the collection is super strong. With all of the black, grey, white and navy in my closet, and the dreaded winter so far, I want so badly to bring out my spring and summer whites, and the limited color I wear. Next Fall, I’ll definitely plan to add one of the rich hues to my wardrobe, either the turquoise/cobalt or hot pink/maroon suit. Also, the shearling cream and black chaps.
