My 5 Favorite Looks from Joseph Abboud


….And the boys are back for another season of making a #JACustom suit for the highly anticipated  Jospeh Abboud New York Fashion Week Show. In the past I’ve partnered with Joseph Abboud to create a special look for the show and made a navy corduroy suit for his Fall/Winter ’17 collection show, an ivory three-piece for his Spring Summer ’17 collection show–which I am counting the days for warmer weather to wear again. For his latest show, I created a three-piece suit made out of three distinct patterns that meshed really well together; Houndstooth, plaid and herringbone.

The new Joseph Abboud Fall/Winter ’18 collection was filled with hues of gray, flannel and velvet and a hint of burgundy red. Here are my five favorite looks from the collection.

The 4 pieces of Eyewear That Got Me Through #NYFW

This is my 12th Season attending #NYFW and each year it gets more and more exciting. In the past men’s fashion week would be 3-day event a week or two before women’s, however this year women’s kicked off the same day men’s ended and therefore the energy in the city felt like it was fashion week!

This season I was invited to attend Ovadia & Sons, Todd Snyder, Perry Ellis, Joseph Abboud, Ralph Lauren and my first Tom Ford Show. I haven’t been this excited over a show since the first show I’ve attend, which was Nicholas K back at Lincoln center in February 2012.

Here are some of the looks that got me through #NYFW, and the eyewear that kept my specs and shades-game on point.

Shades: ic! berlin

For the first day of #NYFWM which entailed New York Men’s Day, Ovadia and Sons and Todd Snyder, I wore this heavily layered number where I threw on an oversized button down shirt over a merino wool turtleneck sweater. I topped my look with a pair of screw-less sunglasses by ic! berlin. 

Specs: Zac Posen 

It’s a daily ritual during New York Fashion to have a cup (or three) of coffee before heading out to do fashion festivities. I’m actually pretty shy about the fact that I wear eyeglasses (for distance), but with these Zac Posen specs, it makes it so easy to feel confident and bold in my eyewear.

Specs: Sandro

Luckily for us we only had one snow day during #NYFW.  For the extra cold weather I wore a turtleneck, top coat, snow boots and pair of Sandro glasses.

Shades: Vuarnet

One of my favorite traditions during NYFW is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I know, it’s a bit odd, but I ALWAYS have a fellow blogger visiting from out of town and as my tour guide duty, I must show them one of my favorite places to shoot, The Brooklyn Bridge. For the walk, I wore my Vuarnet round-sunnies.

Getting Through #NYFW with Uber

New York Fashion Week is here, and having a car to take you from place to place is crucial, but at times can be expensive. This season I got around from show to show using an UberBLACK, because of course I need a ride to match my look, and the Multiple Destinations feature to pick up and drop off friends to and from shows. It’s super convenient and easy to use. Typically if a show says it starts at a certain time (let’s say 10AM), the actual show would begin at 10:25-10:30AM and will last for about 5 minutes. Once the final walk begins I typically hop on my phone to request my UberBLACK so I’m not late to the next show. Easy right?! (and super reliable.)


After your Uber is confirmed and on it’s way, head over to the app and click on your driver. Then under current trip you will be able to add or change the destination, and viola! It’s great, reliable and super efficient especially when you’re in a chaotic mood during New York Fashion Week. Learn more about it, HERE.
