let's hear it for the boys...literally

all photos from The Sartorialist

Yea, yea, I know I titled myself 'The Fashion Enthusiast' and you should rightfully expect some crazy fashion girl who piles on the accessories and wears bug eye sunglasses like she thinks she's Lady Gaga. Don't get me wrong, I do love some wacky accents. However, I can't help but admire a simple outfit whenever I stumble upon one. Judging from Mr. Scott Schuman's photos, he feels the same way. The photos above prove that the boys of New York know a thing or two about looking good in the simplest form. It goes something like this: simple tee or tank + cuffed jeans + worn in sk8r shoes + optional hat/skateboard/cigarette = an awesome outfit. 
 Mikkat Market tee, BDG jeans, SeventySix sneakers

Look it's me shot by The Sartorialist! JK, this was taken on self timer in my backyard. But if the outfit works for the boys in the sweltering city then it can work in the land behind my house, right? Nope, I just don't look nearly as cool as them. But it's the thought that counts. I wore the plain white tee, my favorite pair of jeans, and the sneakers. I even cuffed the jeans to show some scandalous ankle skin but I still don't pull it off as well as the gentlemen. Maybe I should dig out my old skateboard from 7th grade...
...but my pants are an American flag so that kinda makes up for the lack of natural coolness.
