My shopping habits have brought me to many stores in my lifetime, but none measure up to the experience I had in Rebecca Minkoff last night. Technology and fashion blends seemingly effortlessly as everything you need and more while shopping is at your fingertips. Jump in the post and follow along as I give you a mini tour.
Max Twitty of Gents Among Men was one of a select few menswear’s bloggers who had the opportunity to be a part of Paul Stuart’s made to measure footwear event. Paul Stuart is known for their classic styles, wonderful use of colors and overall consistency producing quality products. I documented the journey as Twitty was measured and hope you enjoy the visuals.

I’ve been working with Max Twitty and the Gents Among Men staff for a little over a year now. It’s always a pleasure but Twitty’s Gents Stoop Series has to be the most significant project we worked on together. The representation of cultured, well-dressed, educated men is a beautiful sight to see in today’s world. We wanted these photos to embody the Gents Among Men slogan, “Look Good. Live Well.” As we continue the #GentsStoopSeries I look forward to helping Max Twitty achieve his vision for the project.
Max Twitty of Gents Among Men was given the opportunity to interview the iconic Russell Simmons prior to his Argyleculture runway show during New York Fashion Week. The conversation was intriguing and Russell told Twitty about his inspirations, goals, and love for argyle.
I typically try to hide behind my camera and capture the moments but at some point during the conversation I had to put the Canon down and just appreciate what was going on in front of me.
When two of my favorite brands come together I’m worse than a kid in a candy store. I’ll be more like a lion in a butchers shop, with all the goodness going on around me I don’t know what to do with myself. The West Village location of Goorin Bros. opened it’s doors for their “Fall Fashion in Manhattan” event. Drinks were flowing, people were shopping and the store filled to capacity by the end of the night.
As Noble Breed continues it’s successful rise, I’m always excited to see what they’ll do next.
When I think about grunge the first thing that comes to my mind is not sexy. But leave it to Kat to blur those lines and make you look at grunge in a whole new light. We explored two aspects of Kat’s personality and because I can’t pick a side… We’ll leave it up to you to decide which you like better.
This post will be short and sweet because I have about 6 more weeks before my judgement of The Left Shoe Company. can be finalized. This is not a come in and walk out with the shoes you fell in love with at first sight type shop. 3-d technology is used to scan your feet and ensure you have a comfortable fit. That’s not where the custom feel stops though, you can change the color of the model you choose, switch the sole for comfort and/or durability, the list goes on but I promised I would keep it short. After you are measured and finalize your choices it takes approximately 6 weeks for your shoes to arrive.
Unfortunately The Left Shoe Company does not have a New York location at the moment but we were able to check out the pop-up location while they were here.
When it comes to champagne Moët Chandon has been a huge name in the industry thanks to key marketing campaigns, musical references, tradition, and it’s exquisite taste. Once Moët Chandon Ice Impérial graced my palette I was hooked. Poured over ice and sipped slowly while sailing the New York waves was something out of a movie. As we sailed I snapped photos to share our experience.
The Standing Room stood true to it’s name during Thursday’s ice cream social as the shop filled quickly and guest had to filter outside to keep the festivities going. Shop owners Heights + Kenchi and host Max Twitty of Gents Among Men collaborated with Chef Carlos and Mikey Likes It to ensure that we were fed throughout the night. Mikey Likes It ice cream was a hit and brought a couple people in the neighborhood out asking for a scoop.
Although the food and drinks were wonderful, the highlight of the night was the diverse group of individuals that came together for the event. The issues of police brutality, rioting and racial profiling are at the forefront of people’s mind due to Michael Brown’s death and the ensuing fallout in Ferguson. Whatever small problems that may irritate me throughout my week become small when I put the major issues of the world in perspective. Thursday’s ice cream social was a nice escape from everything going on and if you weren’t present, hopefully the photos below will take you away for a minute as well.
