Men’s Fashion icon Nick Wooster outside Armani’s Fall 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week.

New York Men’s Fashion Week kicks off today showcasing what to expect for Fall/Winter 2016. Men’s street style is a trend that’s emerging year after year. NYFW tends to be a bit of overkill when it comes to statement pieces and bold looks. However, this year the men’s focus will be more subdued. Just a bunch of dudes in well-tailored pants who understand the concept that less is more.
