Survival Of The Fittest

Walking around the Fashion District in midtown Manhattan today – a messy, cold, and rainy day – I noticed that most everyone was dressed for comfort and warmth. New York is the most fashionable city in the US by some distance…even so, many New Yorkers feel the need to give in to comfort dressing when the weather turns a wee bit crap. Bad weather in fact seems to me to be one of the best ways of separating fashion’s men from the boys (so to speak). I shot the photos you see here yesterday in downtown Manhattan – an even colder day with a small amount of snow. These kids though stayed “on mission” fashion-wise. Not only did they not give into the temptation to dress for comfort, they seemed to use the weather as an excuse to ramp their fashion game up. Are you guilty of comfort dressing??? I’m laughing a bit as I’m typing this but it’s a serious affliction…
