I’m really excited to be covering this year’s New York Fashion Week Mens. Even though I’m not a big fan of winter, I love Fall/Winter clothing. What’s even better is I get to see a first hand view of what guys will be wearing come this time next year. It’s hard to believe that last week at this time I was bundled up in the most unattractive pair of sweats and now I’m in New York City about to see some incredible clothing. One of the designers, I’m looking forward to covering is Brett Johnson. I had the opportunity to cover one of his first trunk shows as well as feature some of his clothes in a couple of my blog posts. He’s a genuinely nice guy and I can’t wait to see his latest collection. New York Fashion Week is an amazing spectacle from the celebrities, to the street style to the amazing clothes that come down the runway and I have to admit I get caught up in all of it. Not only do I get to cover the fashion and events (follow my coverage on Examiner.com) but I also get ideas that influence my own style, which I get to feature in my own blog. Lately, I’ve been into the tonal look. In recent posts (The grey overcoat and The Puffer Vest) I’ve been a huge fan of gray this season. So I thought I’d lighten up a bit in all cream. Daring yes but I like the impact that it makes. A thick wool cable knit sweater is just the ticket for winter and why be conventional pairing it with a pair of denim jeans? So what if I have to be careful about spilling my coffee or where I sit I think I look fantastic. I’m also grateful for the new and existing friendships I’ve developed along the way especially with my fellow bloggers. These amazing people have a special place in my heart. They encouraged me to write this blog and shown me the ropes so that I could get into the fashion week events. We’ve been in the trenches as we’ve shuttled from show to show nearly exhausted and also shared the disappointment when we’ve gotten declined from attending a highly coveted show. They know who they are and they deserve a big shout out.
