Menswear at New York Fashion Week

The men in New York were well-dressed (for the most part) and were sporting several interesting trends - 

Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, packed a lot of trends into this outfit.  Colored frames, gingham shirt, sneakerized loafers (with a suit).  And even one piece I haven't seen before - a blue leather belt with a blue suit.

Lookin' sharp.  Maybe a little 50's throwback?

Ken Downing, Senior VP of Neiman Marcus, is sporting a lot of denim with a blue sweater and a blue gingham shirt.  

This is a bold outfit that may only work on him.

These are just people I saw walking down the street, but I thought this guy looked nice in his blue suit and maroon tie with a tie clip.

Another "normal" guy hanging out on the street - but this one is wearing a very fashion-forward outfit featuring culottes. 

Another 50's reference.  Simple and elegant.  I like it.

I don't think I've ever seen this look before - silk scarf with leather jacket.  Very interesting.

Graphic hip-hop.

Preppy chic.  The leather in this outfit is so rich.

Another silk scarf...with the addition of a crazy bag.

Large pockets are a popular design feature right now.

Don't try this at home.

This is a fashionable hiking outfit, and once again, a lot of blue.  I like the hat and the green boots.

Almost every man at Fashion Week rolled their pants at the ankles.  Red pants were popular with the men as well.

So, bomber jackets, rolled ankles, and almost any shoe goes.  And if you are going to dress up, think 50's and wear a tie clip.
