During a typical February, New York residents have to choose between between looking good and, well, staying warm. But that was not the case for attendees of New York Fashion Week: Men's, which wrapped up on Thursday: The second iteration of menswear-dedicated shows and presentations, headquartered at Clarkson Square North, was blessed with unseasonably warm weather that gave show-goers (and the male models lurking outside the venues) plenty of flexibility in their wardrobe choices.
So what did they rely on most? The majority of attendees went dapper — think three-piece suits, trench coats draped over shoulders, and either attention-grabbing socks or a sliver of bare ankle above perfectly-polished loafers — or street, with fresh sneakers complimenting drop-crotch pants and baseball hats.
