For professional men born before 1940, the side parted short back and sides was the norm in the UK, Europe and America from the early 60s until the end of the decade. Black men usually buzzed their hair short or wore styles like the conk, artificially straightened with chemicals. Blue collar white men, especially former military personnel, often wore buzzcuts and flat tops during the summer. During the early to mid 60s, rebellious Irish-American, Italian-American and Hispanic teen guys influenced by the greaser subculture often wore ducktails, pompadours and quiffs.
Sometimes we think that menswear designers are out to do a number on us. Such is the case with the resurgence of tropical print shirts which, on first take, seems like a bit of a sartorial booby trap. Liking a tropical shirt flies in the face of all good reason: they’re usually gaudy, never fit particularly well and are invariably worn by overbearing men as a nonverbal way of communicating that you’re in close proximity to ‘a fun guy’.
Don’t forget to treat your feet. Take the time to find just the right pair of footwear for every occasion, or spoil yourself with a stylish pair of shoes that you can rock with a variety of ensembles. Stock up on everything you need for athletic shoes, work boots, formal footwear, and casual kicks. Before summer arrives, score some new sandals or flip flops to keep your toes cool in balmy breezes. No matter what you have planned for the season, lining your closet with a selection of classy men’s clothing that fits your fashion fancy is easy on eBay.
I love the 40’s, the clothes, the music, the movies. I was born in 53, so I didn’t live it. My mom was a classy dresser and I always looked through family albums to see how they dressed. I especially love the men’s suits and ties. So wish I could find some vintage suits. In high school, when given the opportunity to play in Stage Band, I jumped on it because they played a lot of the big band tunes. That still remains my favorite memories of high school.
An animal keeper, Brian Price, crouches on the other side of the mesh. “There you go, Moki,” he murmurs, passing a green bean into Mokolo’s mouth as a treat. The 400-pound animal gently accepts it with his lips.
It was dusk at Pier 26 in Manhattan when the monk began to chant, a deep, rolling vibrato you could feel in the pit of your belly. Across the flat, open expanse of the pier, which juts out into the Hudson River, a friar in a long tunic stood atop an open-air staircase, holding a pair of birch saplings. He gazed toward a fully clothed woman beneath a running shower on the roof of a tin shanty and, beyond her, a pair of identically dressed bearded men, one clutching the other in his arms like a teddy bear.
The brainchild of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, New York Fashion Week: Men’s is entering its fifth season. This time around, more than 50 brands will show their spring 2018 collections in the hopes of winning the attention of editors and retail executives as Lower Manhattan becomes a playground for dandies and fops and the street-style photographers who track them.

The New York event follows a month of men’s wear shows in London, Paris, Milan and Florence, Italy. While attending those events, Mr. Pask noticed a few changes reflecting a refocusing on proportion likely to be on view here. “We’re looking at clothing that is bigger, a bit more fluid,” he said. “Pants that are full, shorts that are oversized, referencing late ’80s early ’90s fashion, but it’s interpreted.”
Fashion may be used to promote a cause, such as to promote healthy behavior, to raise money for a cancer cure, or to raise money for local charities such as the Juvenile Protective Association or a children’s hospice.
