My New York Fashion Week Men's 2018 Looks

1:55 PM


I've had the privilege of attending last week's 2018 NYFWM Fall / Winter presentations with some of the District's finest gentlemen. It was my first year attending and I didn't know what to expect, so I came overprepared. There was a lot of running around from one location to another, chaos, bad weather; but it was also an exhilarating and genuinely fun experience. With that said, here are my looks in the 4 days that I attended.


DAY 1:

The first day's outfit consisted of a wax cotton jacket and knee-high military boots as my two main pieces, because when it comes to Fashion Week holding back is not an option! "Follow your style and don't overthink it" was my thought process. As seen on PAUSE MAGAZINE with O'Neil Gardner and Barnette Holston. Shot by @aagdolla for Pause Online.

DAY 2:

For my morning outfit I went with an all-weather camo field jacket as my main piece. I didn't want to carry a bag, so it only made sense to wear something with a lot of accessory pockets. It was very windy at pier 59 (where some of the shows were held) so the windproof qualities of the field jacket helped a great deal.

For the more formal evening shows, I switched to an elegant 70's vintage tweed jacket with maroon and white houndstooth check and a navy blue windowpane pattern. As seen on Perry Ellis Runway Show shot by Amber De Vos for Getty Images.

DAY 3:

The weather took a turn for the worst on day 3. It was wind and rain mixed with snow, but that didn't deter the crowd. At this point, staying warm and dry was my only concern. To battle the elements I added an extra layer, put a hat on, and finished the look with some rain boots. Images below shot by O'Neil Gardner.

DAY 4:

Our fourth day was more relaxing. Fashion Week transitioned from Men's to Women's, so we didn't have much shows on our schedule. After our events we decided to hit Dumbo, Brooklyn to shoot our looks of the day.

Many of my looks this week were military-inspired, specifically from the Army on day 2, Navy on day 4, and Air Force on day 3. Taking a piece from each branch, I was able to put together a comfortable and functional look.

I want to thank friends old and new for a fantastic experience at my first New York Fashion Week, and a special shout-out to the DC crew.  Til' the next one!
