On the Street…. West Village, New York


The fun of shooting on the streets is you just never know what you will find. If I haven’t found anything good in a day or so I really start feeling like I will never get another good shot. Then someone ,like this gentleman, strolls by and everything is right again in New York.
Of course the hat is what I spotted from about two blocks away but I also like the linen suit. i can’t decide if i think it is vintage, it could be Yohji but the shoulder makes me fell like it is vintage.

    Wow, the hat is simply great. The best item of this look.
    Great shot.

    Wow, a black linen suit. This seems rare to me. I guess vintage given the mans other qualities.

    What brio! What rakishness! Fascinating how top-button-only seems to work best. What a character. What combinations. What a way to start a Monday!

    I love that one commenter “hates the hat” and the next “loves the hat”.

    the looks is very “parisian” to me, a simple basic black suit with punches of interest-pink shirt paired with dappled color tie,and the *funnest* hat ive seen in a while.

    He looks like he’s channeling Monty Wooley — I like it, I like it!

    Awesome! Looking at the shoulder line and sleeve cap of the suit makes me believe it’s vintage.

    This is the by far my favorite look so far this season… It’s such a layered, detailed look (you yourself admited to noticing only the hat first), but with the closed-in view, you see just how complicated (i.e. successful) his outfit is. Kudos!

    He makes me nostalgic for Richard Merkin who once walked these streets in full kit and now’s up the river. I doubt that this suit is vintage, judging from the button placement.
