He Said/We Said: End of Summer Edition

We shot our last two He Said/We Said series in San Fran and Portland to capture all the dapperness that exists outside of our insular NYC universe. For our 13th edition, we’ve returned home to the West Village, shooting on the streets surrounding the historic Stonewall bar.

Photographer Gizelle Peters and I selected a Bespoken menswear collection as the inspiration. While it is their spring line, the collection demonstrates how shorts and bright colors can be layered and continue to be worn as the weather cools up. Grays and navys make the collection’s pieces versatile enough to mix and match with other cooler-weather items (blazers, sweaters, etc.) in your closet throughout the year.
