14It’s funny during Fashion Week people wear the craziest things to get noticed. I’m typically not one to jump on that band wagon, I’m usually the guy in the suit but for this season, I did want to try something different.6

However not wanting to break away from the “suited look”, I figured I’d try different types of coats to attain what I’d like to call an urban suit look. On one of the cooler days, I opted to sport a Moncler jacket. Even though it was filled with down, this jacket is a perfect transition into fall. It was very lightweight and as the day turned to evening, it served me well on the top of Hotel Hugo’s rooftop for the Pop Sugar Party. It really helped to fight off the chill in the air that night

The incredible exhibit featured works from iconic photographers each interpreting the Moncler jacket. The exhibit and silent auction was for the benefit of amfar’s ‘Countdown to a Cure’, the aim of which is to find a cure for AIDS by 2020.IMG_1203

White shirt and sneakers with jeans was a simple but fun look. For a tie, I thought I’d rock a bow tie. Yes it was a different look for me but I felt that it worked.12 11
