  1. New York street style: Justin on Hester Street, LES


    I know I've never photographed dudes before, but I couldn't resist Justin's sharp New York-take on the uniquely English mod/rude boy/skinhead look from the early '80s.
    A wee birdy told me he was wearing a shirt by Ben Sherman, vest by Fred Perry, braces by 99X (New York mod shop), jeans by Levis, cherry Getta Grip boots, and a vintage trilby. You might also like to check out Justin's splendid band, The Bowery Riots.

      Why’s this guy wearing his braces over the sweater?? Big “fashion no-no”… and his left boot looks like it stepped in something nasty. Ugh.

      I say wear braces over the vest, but if you do, take it all the way home: tuck the vest into your jeans, stud!
