You got the suit. Now what? To complete any suit, you need accessories. 3 of my favorite accessories: pocket square, tie bar, and lapel pin should be a part of any suit. You can mix and match them when accessorizing your suit. So let’s say your first suit is a black suit. It doesn’t have to boring! Accessories add personality and style.
Arthur Avenue in the Bronx is rich with history. From family owned Italian restaurants to Albanian shops, you can see the past, present, and future run in these streets. I had to pleasure to work with fellow Bronxite, Shaira Chaer, to shoot some of these. Her photography no only consists of traditional DSLRs, but also old school cameras. For the following pictures, she used a Hasselblad 500C.
Where am I? The lovely Ferry Point Park in The Bronx! Maybe you saw it when ANTHONY BOURDAIN stopped by here during his show. I was inspired by the East River that flows here and went with this blue on blue look.
How do you choose a belt? If you have been using a traditional belt with holes, you may have found yourself in a situation where the belt doesn’t perfectly fit. Or the holes don’t end up in the right place for you. Another situation is your belt fitting well, but ending up being too long! Luckily, I had a chance to try out Railtek Belts, the ratchet belts with no holes.
Spring is finally here! I decided to try out a more “casual” look. Well, casual for me, at least. I was able to bring Nick, of Coastal Flicks, down to the boogie down to help shoot in Mott Haven, The Bronx.
There are colors that complement each other. Blue and orange, red and green, and in this case, black and yellow. What inspired the whole outfit was this bicycle tie from ties.com. I felt it was very “dandy” with the pattern. The bikes are yellow with a black background, so I kept with that color gradient with the outfit.
Causal. Comfy. Professor like.
Sometime you have to be casual. So when you do, make it look clean. Luckily, Combatant Gentlemen let me try out some of their stuff from their Summer collection. It’s been been the hottest it’s ever been in NYC, so I wanted to give it a shot.
