On The Street…. Black Summer, New York

This is a great example of how to wear black in summer. The fabric weights were spot on but more important was the overall fit – shorter, slimmer and more athletic makes black seem less oppressive in the warm months.

    We havent hit peak summer temps yet, I don’t think this guy will be wearing that outfit come August.

    This fellow looks very much like the star of the Transporter movies. And the black looks great too.

    Black is okay. Great t-shirt and pants. But the shoes: I don’t like it at all. Fine brown leather shoes would match better. :-)

    i hv a gf who love to wear black head to toe, day in day out, but she doesnt look as good, i guess it’s lack of accessories

    People say we, New Yorkers, wear black all year-round. Really? Whatever gave them that idea?? ;0P

    I’m a young Italian blogger and I was really impressed by this blog. It could be nice to do something similar in Milan!

    I just had the pleasure of seeing this gentleman in the exact spot on 5th Ave (just in front of BG)were the picture was taken and he was wearing the very same black togs. It was his photographed image come to life..was a strange virtual reality thing…I did the ultimate triple take. I mentioned that I recognized him…and he was flattered and amused….In the midtown rush on a hot day he made black look striking, cool and crisp.

    Pants are way to short.
