Currently Coveting: Menswear

The New York Times recently published a fashion feature about "The New Dandies".  The article highlights the men from Street Etiquette and talks about a new kind of street style.  

From the article:

"...This generation emphasizes the basics: great fabrics, aggressive tailoring, thoughtful accessorizing. It’s a return to style as a source of dignity, a theme that has run through generations of black American style, from Reconstruction to the Harlem Renaissance to the civil rights era to the mixed messages of the hip-hop era.
“I used to wear size 42 jeans,” Mr. Kissi said. “Coming from that to a tie and shirt, people perceive you in a whole different way.”"
I love this.
