    are those Puma Clydes? no matter, i love the colorway, the name ring very 80s hip-hop. the mongoose bike – also very 80s but the pegs are very trick rider.

    loving the B-R-double O-K-L-Y-N!

    love the color mix overall, if the bike had a plain red frame and his t-shirt was just a black basic v neck, it would be perfect but nonetheless, great shot, casual and spot on

    Yep, that t-shirt (and the jeans too if i'm not mistaken) are from my favorite shop in BK, The Brooklyn Circus. It's right in Boerum Hill on the corner of Nevins and Bergen…I've been waiting for you to catch wind of it. No one in New York City is doing what they're doing with style, and they're a really good bunch. If you stop by, ask for Ouigi aka The Bearded Man!

    i've worked with them on some editorial stuff in the past…check 'em out

    He is so my type. That stupid trick bike, ridiculous ironic T-shirt and the hipster purple shoes with that gorgeous face…Ugh.. I'm so in love.

    I love rr's comment– fort greene is my 'hood and that is exactly how I feel about it. These pics have been an amazing display and perfectly captures "personal style"– they're great! And they make me miss my 'hood while I'm working overseas…

    keep up the great work! I love that you capture the essence of the individual yet it somehow relates to the city, no matter where you're shooting…

    Im really digging the outfit but i agree the shoes dont do it for me.

    i've seen a lot of guys around my area that dress the way he does, the only difference and why i would give him props is that he matched his socks with the same color of his shoe.

    I love how the look on his face seems to show he doesn't really want his photo taken and how his phone is still held casually in his hand. Love how his jeans are cuffed.
    I'm new – check me out :D

    Nice. I'm living vicariously through this dude right now, because, I, like many of you, would love to be featured on this blog and have people complimenting/swooning over me. I happen to recognize him–he works at a well known babershop in the immediate vicinity of this photo. I won't give the name, but he'd be easy to find, so ladies, or men (i'm not presumptuous), have at him!!

    I'm pretty sure the purple shoes are the HUF x DVS Doughboy.

    Shoes are awesome, the rest I can live without. I am very annoyed by the rolled up leg. Nice bike.

    I'm really not a fan of the printed shirt, but everything waist down is perfect. This man knows how to dress. The kicks are obviously great, but he has the socks to match, and is showing them off beautifully with the cuff and the bike as a real fashion accessory.

    Shoes ain't puma….they look more like low blazer sb, but they're not…saw those in paris and i can tell you they ain't clydes…clydes are thinner
