"The Blogger PROJECT is a curated content experience that bridges the gap between digital media experts & brands. By connecting the right brands with the right editors, we create live content from the trade show floor."
PROJECT NY Recap Part I - It's a great honor to be part of the #BloggerProject curated by Marcus Troy as a featured editor of the tradeshow. Project features many top brands showcasing its future FW15 and SS16 collection to press and potential buyers. So think of this post as a big sneak peek to what menswear will bring in the upcoming year! It was a tremendous opportunity to meet the people behind the brands, build new relationships, check out the new collections, and create original digital content all in one spot.
Day 1 Project Look - Being in NYC, I wanted to bring that sharp tailored menswear look to the table. I went with a pattern mixing three-piece look that featured plaid, checkers, and pinstripes. The colors purple and navy blue play well together and blend the patterns in a subtle yet bold way. This is a great look with or without the jacket. Also the event was held in July with the summer heat so to make the look summer ready, the tie and pinstripe vest & pants are all cotton. Finish it off with these beautiful Italian single monk straps from Johnston & Murphy.

Levitate Brands to the next level - Gant Stripe Shirt-Jacket & Uri Minkoff Backpack
Nice mix of patterns found at Bugatti
CAT making a splash offering strong selection of footwear. I'll take one of each on the top row (monkstrap boots!?). That's right, CAT is not just construction boots anymore.
My favorite styles from the J&M Est 1850 collection. Classics made Modern for our generation.
Another classic in menswear - Fred Perry offers classy & stylish clothing that works well in any guy's wardrobe
