Suspended In Time

This fine gentleman has a learned look. His dress and his demeanor remind me of a southern blues musician, maybe with a little more color. He wears a green polo shirt tucked into the waist of his pleated, khaki slacks. The loose fitting pants are held up by a set of pink suspenders, giving his top a little more color. His dark brown loafers look like they have walked many a street in their time. To top off the look he has a straw fedora on his head, and a large hardcover book in his hand.

Street Style – SoHo

The Young Writer

This weekend was the famous Outdoor Art Exhibit in Washington Square Park. This young writer sat on a bench, enjoying the weather and the festivities around him. He has a very artsy style, with black skinny jeans and black All Star high tops. His vertical striped button down adds a bit of color and the bowler hat adds a nice touch of vintage appeal.

Mark Twain Doppelganger

This post is not as much about fashion as it is about character. While I do really like the white ruffled shirt, bow tie and cumber bun combination, it is this man’s character and style that dominate the images. He looks like a writer, which could be the reason why I associated him with Mark Twain or maybe just because he looks like him. His worn leather bag looks like it could be holding a manuscript for the next great American novel.  I do also like how the the beige jacket (occupy button on lapel, and all) stands away from the white shirt creating a little contrast in the outfit.
