The inaugural Men's New York Fashion Week is in full swing across Manhattan, as designers embrace an overlooked audience: fashionable gentlemen. With ambassadors ranging from supermodel Tyson Beckford to NBA superstar Dwyane Wade, big-name sponsors such as Amazon Fashion, and runway shows from the likes of Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Public School, Men's Fashion Week is off to a rousing start.
While Daily Show alum, Samantha Bee, enjoyed a few laughs at the Zoolander-esque models' expense, we partook in a bit of style watching with the square-jawed crowd outside the shows. Between downpours and glimpses of sunshine, stylish New Yorker men hit the streets around West Soho's Skylight Clarkson Square wearing an array of patterns and prints. But the takeaway from day one was the love of sunglasses. As rain fell around them, the fellas continued to sport their summer sunnies in style.
